Onsies, Twosies, Threesies....

Today would have been my Mom's 80th Birthday. Staggering. I can't even begin to imagine what she would look like at 80. She's been gone for a 25 years, long years that somehow went quickly. She always said that the days may drag but the years fly by & she was right.
On my desk sits one of my most treasured items, a little blue crock that holds a ball & jacks & for some unknown reason one marble. These were my mom's, she loved to play jacks, just one of the zillion things to love about her!

The Welcoming Committee

The little kids across the street giggle when they see Virginia sitting next to the Griffin because they said they look like sisters.

Spring has Sprung!

MY dad made these tulips for me the year before he passed away, this is the first time I put them in my window box (my husbands suggestion) & I LOVE the way they look. I get my love of gardening & woodworking from my dad.

Thanks to pinterest I discovered some new seed starting methods, paper towel rolls cut down, newspaper pots & I came up with the idea to try paper dixie cups, we'll see what happens.
