Gorgeous Sunshine

Have to enjoy this gorgeous respite from the dismal grey weather we've been having here in is wonderfully yellow!


Because blogging is such a mystery to me seeing the number "2000" on my counter this morning is pretty awesome!  I don't like to say the word "resolution" because I think that somehow ties me to a responsibility rather than the free spirit I try to be, but I did write it down at the beginning of the year!  Keep visiting, I promise to make your pit stop interesting, educational or just plan fun.  God bless you all.

I once spent 7 hours

I am book crazy!  I admit it.  You get this title if you have ever spent 7 hours going through boxes, I mean literally boxes of books looking for 1 thing, CRAFT BOOKS!

Having done this a few years ago, makes me yearn to do it again.  But this is a once in a lifetime moment, there are no seconds.

The story begins with a young couple purchasing a three story building right off our square downtown.  The building was vacant for a long time and the little cafe restaurant on the first floor, facing the towns square was closed.  Left behind in the building was a treasure trove of books.  Many ruined from years of neglect; rain from a leaky roof, others torn and crushed from other falling books, mold and mildew galore.  There were school books, workbooks, children's primers, coloring books, college course books, novels, vintage books and so much more in subjects of math, literature, poetry, music, history and crafts.  All this, 10's of thousands of books left in the third floor apart…

You make me

BLUSH!  Happy Valentine's Day my friends!

You have to meet this Horse named...

DAN!  Spent the largest part of the afternoon in yesteryear and came across this posting.  While I was living in Northern California I happened to pick up a very old scrapbook chocked full of articles about San Francisco as well as articles the original owner clipped on the latest inventions (like the cordless iron!), poems and politics, all dating between 1935 and 1936.  I've chosen to share some of these with you because they are so special.  So, I hope you enjoy this one especially because I so can relate to his companion!  You will probably need to double click on the pic to make bigger to read this lovely article.  I know I will get back to crocheting but for today well....I have a lot of reading to do!

Saturday BLAHS!

Have you ever woke up and nothing seems to come together?  From laying aside yesterday's project to start something new, only to have other distractions take precedent?  Is it the cosmos, the allure of the book I started last night while curling up under the covers or the bright sunshine this morning beckoning to me to lay everything aside in a heap and go outside?  Well, it is still 30 deg out there, that's not very inviting but at least the snow is melting off leaving patches of green.  I can't complain too much, my hubby is not having a good time either as the truck still won't start and he's been working on it for a week.  What to do what to do.

My Granddaughter is a Girl Scout

Where does the time go when all of a sudden your 1st Grandchild is a full fledged Girl Scout and selling cookies!  Sent her a really cute Girl Scout apron from Etsy and she loved it enough to send me this lovely thank you card.  Loved it!

Japanese Wisteria

Can any plant more resemble Avatar than Japanese Wisteria in full bloom? We had many of these plants at one time, now looking again to add to our Mid-Ohio garden, can't wait for Spring!

Celebrate National Crochet Month

Don't you just love that there is a month to celebrate this FAV craft! Perfect timing to get ready for Spring and Summer goodies!  I can't wait to take this tour down Crochet Lane!  What better way to enjoy my coffee breaks visiting my friends and fellow crocheters participating in this Crochetville event, heh! and I don't even have to get dressed up!!!!!
