The flowers are doing great!

My flowers are spreading... This desert "Blahhhh" bugged me so much when I moved out here, and Mike hadn't had time to flowerscape, so I plant more in more of our yards every year!
The garden is growing very well this year! Mike is an awesome gardener! The more he sees growing, the more he wants to plant.... MAYBE he will eat some of it this year??? LOL!

I Love Estate Sales!

I went to an estate sale over the weekend and found some beautiful glass. A Jadeite powder /trinket dish, a gorgeous 1969 Jim Beam Bourbon whiskey bottle, a collectible Avon dish with top, some old pictures and frames, and TONS of lace and ribbon for sewing! I also got a beautiful little covered butter dish from Ebay and when I put it in my curio cabinet, it matched my little white milk glass pitcher! They look so awesome side by side!

It's SPRING!!!

Welcome Landon Josiah into the world!

I am a grandma again! Born February 2nd, 2010, and he is so BEAUTIFUL!!! Just like his mama!


Spring is here and that means time for planting and growing! Time to get my flower beds going again, and fixing new areas for planting more flowers....

Since last year, we have new fruit trees and some grape vines. Can't wait for them to produce!

Haven't been here in a while, having some computer issues, and now I see some blog issues too....the reindeer from christmas wont go away when I try to edit him out!

So....Happy Spring and happy planting untill next time!

Things To Do While post-op

Having surgery can slow ya down....so can quitting smoking! Now if I can just keep my hands moving before all the inspiration leaves! Hahahaha!
Hair clip with seed beads and pearls, a peyote sitch free form bracelet, afree-form necklace with a shell and toggle as the clasp and focal piece, some beautiful faceted green glass came alive with some antique looking chain and bead caps.

Started the new year off great....CREATING! YEAH!


Kath was my best friend, even during her addictions, her confusion, her instability. I remember who she REALLY was... a loving, compasionate, giving, funny-as-hell, kick ass woman. Kathy... I love and miss you so much . My heart hurts because I couldn't help you and had to detach. I was so honored that ya waited for me to be with you when you crossed over. Keep on kickin' ass on the other side babe.
