Panny cake, panny cake…

My kid the musician with her steel pan band from Appalachian State.  My kid is the dark haired girl smack in the middle of the front row – she’s leading, though us of the great unwashed would never know it.


Stuff I need

Old wool sweaters – any color or size but must be 100% wool or alpaca – all the better if they have been accidentally shrunk because that is what I’m going to do with them anyway.

Old costume jewelry – broken or not, doesn’t matter – glittery or enamel or pretty much any condition

Empty Altoids tins

Old t shirts in lots of colors – stained doesn’t matter – holes do, if they are in the body – not if they are in the sleeves or upper portion

Old wood embroidery hoops – any size, doesn’t matter

I just don’t want to spend any money to get them…  Christmas projects begin to swirl through the grey matter.

oh yeah –

and Old doilies, vintage linens of any sort from handkerchiefs to aprons to pillow cases, and old Christmas decorations – ALWAYS looking for old Christmas decorations.  You know me and Christmas decorations, we are like this!!

And old tea cups with flowers, singles just fine – saucers would be nice – need, I need I tell you.

And lastly I need time, has anyone noticed where I left my time? I can’t find it anywhere.


OK – adding old little wooden letter blocks, you know the kind – don’t care how many, what condition, or which letters.

You just go ahead and keep the change, m’k?


First Responders –

You cannot commemorate the tragedy of the day without the heroes lost and the heroes who spent days, weeks, months sifting through the rubble for any tiny bit of remains to return to as many families as possible.

I’ll not taint the salute by saying what I think of their exclusion from tomorrow’s ceremony – but I have an opinion, oh yes I do.

Never Forget

Because there can never be enough corgis to look at on the internet

I’ve started messing around with pinterest.  As with most things on-line, except blogging because my kids don’t blog and they barely ever even comment on my blog, my kids were doing it first and I’m a little late to the party.  I’ve discovered I can pin my own corgi pictures to my own corgi board – so long as I’ve posted them on the blog.  Well, I have not posted all my favorite pictures of Gus and Fiona but they are all on the card for the digital frame that I keep next to the computer.  Soooo – here is a picture dump so I can post then snarf them off here to put on my pinterest board.  It is my goal to have one of my corgi pictures show up on some website somewhere  – you know, like lobster corgi or corgi in a swing.  I’m going to be taking lots more pictures to see if I can get one that the world falls in love with, or at least someone out there in the ether.  Probably means I need to come up with more costumes…  It’s very exciting to get an email notice that someone I don’t know has “repinned” one of my guys to their own boards.
So if you’ve already seen any of these I apologize for repeating myself –

Baby Gus – so sweet, makes me want another baby (puppy -not human God forbid)

A boy and his first puppy.

Sweet baby Fiona takes a nap.

Gus watching over his new puppy.

My favorite garden pests.

Snuggling on the spidey chair.

These are ALL my toys!

I hate this thing Mom.

Sharing the comfy chair.

Just chillin in the garden.

: )

We are super models.

Wishing for more cookies in the wishing well.  (the well is all filled in, they are perfectly safe)

Fiona loves music.
