Happy Thanksgiving!

Love my beeswax from 1890 Gable House Goodes.  The cornucopia came out adorable.

Granddaughter made the owl.

This was my spring basket strawberry & pear

October 2017


I haven't posted in a long while - been having issues with loading up photos.  Probably storage space & I refuse to give vendors more of my money.  Prices are going up everywhere.

All is well and I had these photos I thought I share - have no idea how the snow got in the photo.  Beautiful birds.

I have been busy with quilts for 2017 which will be blessed on October 22 and then shipped to Lutheran World Relief.  I hope we get over 100.    Enjoy fall it is my favorite time of the year.

New Deck

Having a new deck & windows I have a new house.

I love the smell of cedar wood

I love how they added a hand rail

I will put a preserver on the wood in the fall
I have lived in this home for 27 years, I wasn't going to do anything new but we are not moving for a long time and it needed renovation.

Kitchen Remodel - granite and subway tiles



I got my granite and back splash from Nebraska Furniture Mart.  They have stores in Dallas and Kansas City.

This was before - I had a stainless steel sink.  Now I have a stone sink.           
The stone sink is beautiful and cost $100 more but the sink was deeper and I had to pay $2000 in plumbing fees.  So BEWARE when you get a new sink make sure your pipes are level with you new one and no adjustments necessary. 

Busy with remodeling - I kept the old cabinets and perhaps will have them painted in the future.
I got a new deck - photos next time.

TESTING POPULAR SLIME RECIPES. WHAT WORKED & WHAT DIDNT | PART 1






What is it with Slime - it is a craze at the moment my grand children have been making it for the last year. GET YOUR WHITE GLUE NOW - stores are running out. My DH had to go to 5 stores before he found some, I went to Lakeshore Learning store (a store for teachers). On line you can order gallons.


Start by filling one of your cups up with water, and stir one spoonful of Borax into the water. Then, put about an inch of glue into the other cup. Add three tablespoons of water to the glue and stir. If you would like colored slime, add a few drops of food coloring to the glue mixture.

You can make different color slime. You tube is a great resource for direction.

Working on too many projects!

I am quilting - which is fun.

I am cross stitching - not what is in the photo.

Need to make some mini prayer shawl for purses.

I am almost finished with a prayer shawl.
