I finished the cart with cute measuring tape ribbon to secure the cover on the frame. Now for it's maiden voyage!
Babs Just a Babblin'. I've used it in many craft projects, it's a perfect vintage color.
It's my very first niece's birthday today. Happy Birthday Michele, you will always be my Crazy Asparagus!
Thanks so much for stopping by and for all of your kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.

This is a photo I took at the Cracker Barrel somewhere in Michigan. A friendly pit stop except on Sunday...since everyone traveling was waiting to have grits for breakfast. All of the ladies were dressed to the nines, and I was in jeans and sneakers. (Who knew you needed to dress UP for Sunday at the CB?) I love to peruse the Cracker Barrel, all it's gift ideas, really cute kids clothes (that sweet p. in all her coolness would never ever wear...) and the seasonal decorations.
Last year I bought a sack filled with glitter insects at the wally mart after Christmas. Isn't this the coolest vintagey idea? You can bet my bugs will have book page wings too!

We took an unplanned trip to Michigan on Sunday to deliver some important things left behind by son Mikey. Number one on that list was his winter coat! We got a message from Mike late on Saturday
saying, come on up. We stopped at the local grocery for some of Mike's favorites and set out. The weather was weird to say the least. The roadside was littered by broken tree branches and uprooted trees. We went through some downpours, but most of our ride we had sun behind us and clouds ahead.
(This was only the second Monarch that visited my garden this year...)
More to share tomorrow, first the laundry. Enjoy this beautiful day my friends.

Last night we had our service night. Sewing, sewing and more sewing. Funny, it makes me want to sew at home. Maybe that's what I'll do, sew a few things for the old homestead this weekend. It's this time of year that makes me particularly crafty.
Comfy House, I got over to our local Saver's that is going out of business. Don't blame me, I more than did my part trying to make this store a success. Anyway, Mel sent me a message saying that everything in the store was 50% off for 3 days, and then they were closing. (Thank you Mel!) Without a car and hubby BUSY right now, we fit in a visit on Monday morning to look things over. I went right to the linens. Everyone seems to need sheets, but they were all picked over. I saw this quilt, all cotton and in great shape. It's a twin size but perfect for the couch, floor or foot of the bed. Just $5.00.
Savvy City Farmer, I thought of you when I picked this scarf up. Joy has used plaid scarves as lovely accessories for Christmas. She's got the most beautiful style. Just remember Joy, when you see me copy catting, imitation is the highest form of flattery. (-; xxoo)
Have a great weekend my friends, thanks for stopping by and enjoy this beautiful day.

First National Bank Building where she most likely bought this. We worked together at a law firm, Sue a secretary to one of the attorneys and I the receptionist. I answered the switchboard...some of you may remember the big board with the plugs used to connect calls to each office. Back in the middle ages! I digress...
I planned to crochet the afternoon away in our bedroom...then I went to open the blinds and the dust went flying. I took off the curtains, and the blinds. I took the blinds and took them to the bathroom and in the shower. I got some paper towels and Windex and washed the windows, inside and out. After the windows were clean, I cleaned the blinds, rehung them. Took the curtains to the washer and grabbed the vacuum. What started out as a quiet afternoon turned into a deep cleaning event!
Later I talked to my sweet p. I told her Grandma was pooped. Then she told her Mommy, "Grandma pooped!" Talking about his topic to a two year old is serious business. We straightened out the confusion with lots of laughs. Today I MUST crochet! Wish me luck, and enjoy this beautiful day.
