Chippy Signs

This is a sign my neighbor gave me. It was sitting in her flower bed rotting.  It came from an antique mall in town.   Keeping it under cover  to slow down deteriation.   Still sick . Trying to take it easy.  I think Canton will be a washout for me.  I was looking forward to it, but health is more important.   Happy Monday to all!            judy

Sick Of Being Sick

I know it's only been a couple of days, but this stuff is crazy!  Last night could not breathe,my nose was shut so tight I was in misery.   None of the drugs were working.   Thought I would go insane.  Better this morning. Going into my chest too.  Can't hear or smell or taste. Bummer!   Back when I feel better.   judy

Lounging Around

I think I have picked up a sinus thing.  Claritin D = No Sleep. Keeps me awake.  What happened to all the good stuff that makes you drowsy? Canton is coming soon ,must get better.   I will probably crash here some time today.    It's pretty ugly outside anyway.  Rainy.                       judy

Got some colored seam binding from "The French Market". Pretty Pretty!

New Gate

This is the gate I got in Athens this past weekend.   Now to  paint the house in front.  We ripped up the landscape across the front to plant Roses.  Things had grown up too big over the past years.  Can't wait to plant, it looks so bare.  I will put Bouganvilia in the 2 big concrete  pots in front.      Needs lots of color!!               judy

Galveston Oh Galveston

Big Purple
Love Pink Houses

Nice tree
Intense Doors
These  are just a few grand houses of Galveston.   I stopped and took these on the way to the beach one year .  We don't go their much anymore. We go to Destin, Florida every year instead ,where the sand is white as sugar and the water is swimming pool blue.  These houses have stood many hurricanes but still remain. I have always loved them.                             judy

Birds Of a Feather & 1 Squirrel

I know, we see them everyday.  But while I sit at my computer I can see them flying up to my porch railing.   They are so pretty, I want to take their pictures.  The red and blue ones are my favorites.  The squirrel is around daily. He is now posing for me.  haha!      Spring is almost here!  I am more than ready.   Another beautiful day!  Enjoy!                        judy

A New Arrival

Got this bisque doll today and she was on sale,, 20% off.  She is German.  I just love German made things.  Adding her to my collection.  She will have a place in the old chippy bed next  to, two black haired ones.  She had a purple dress but I like white or cream  on my dolls. 71 degrees so far! Beautiful day!        judy

Paint It Black

This has sat in my workshop all summer. I was dreading doing this one.   It was a dark wood veneer finish which I won't try to do again. I had to degloss and sand down. It actually turned out ok. Surprised!  The cute knobs made the finishing touch. Three drawers had no knob holes so I think I will buy more knobs for the top drawers. Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day!   Back to work.   Judy

I Baked!

Anyone who knows me well knows, I don't like to cook.  I bought a muffin pan last week and this is the second batch of cupcakes.  Good thing I don't cook often or I would gain some serious weight.  These are for my husband , Happy Valentine's Day Baby!  For my man who does so much for everyone, but himself.     Love u  judy
