So while the mouse is away, the cat plays. Here I am with my BFF, shopping in a cool vintage shop. This is a swing she bought. I stripped it and she repainted it. It is a swing for her grandson, Lane.
August 27th, these are my 5 foot plus Zinnias. Suppose to be 24-36 inches tall!
August 30th, the ladies I quilt with every Tuesday morning had a quilter's lunch. The decorations were as adorable as these ladies are.
September 17th, We did the Columbia Heritage Festival.
The grands always come by for a group photo too!
September 29th, goodbye 2005 Jeep, you were good to us.
September 30th hello NEW 2016 Jeep Patriot. This is our 3rd jeep we've owned.
My BFF Margie tied brooms most all day Saturday.
Another piece for the patriotic quilt. More to come. . .
October 17th, It was one last boat ride on the Osage river with friends Tim and Rita.
This was not our apple wagon! I only bought a bushel and it cost $9.00 The apples, any variety were .27 cents a pound.
Some apples went home in horse and buggies.
The Missouri grand kids!
Connor, the oldest Florida grandson, proudly shows off his Captain America costume.
Logan, the other Florida grandson is praying hard that he will get some good candy. So cute for only 18 months old.
Our son in law, Rusty, took the boys trick or treating and look who answered this door? Joey Fatone. Yes, he's their neighbor.
Clark Kent, I mean Alex shows off his costume. Isn't he adorable?
The next morning we had a nice breakfast at the "Bank" in Doniphan Missouri.
The original vaults were still there, and in working condition.
This says it all!
One day we took a 4 wheeler ride with friends through the forest. Here we are listening to Tim, the tree guy explain what we are seeing, including paw paw trees.
Home sweet home!
November 12, I took 7 year old Lizzie to a Case for smiles pillowcase sew-in.
By the time it was over she was even making her own hot dog to sew (It's a pillow case term)
She made 16 cases.
She did out sew everyone here. However I will say, I helped her, by pinning and ironing, when all the other ladies did their whole thing.
I found this cute little pattern for a spool holder, on vintage Singer sewing machines.
Speaking of vintage sewing machines, . . . yes I broke . . I bought another one. It's a cool Singer chain stitch machine. My friend Phil, spent more hours than he will admit getting it back to working condition. Thank you Phil!
#20, but who's counting?
November 25th, I made Lebkuchens. They really need to age, so they were iced and stored in a tin.
That folks is what I've been up to, plus a so much more. Hope everything is good with you all. Life is good here.
