It's Been A Long Time

Hello, my two followers, who ever you might be!  It's been years since I've posted, and I just hope I can get in the swing of things again.

In 2009, we moved to Canton, GA.  It's been a long and strange three years, with multiple ups and downs.  We brought our two dogs:  Heidi had 4, for a total of 6.   Dabby, my sweet, old dog died here.  He fell down the basement steps.  It broke my heart.  Heidi talked me into giving a home to Sheba....she's part Pointer. and something else.  She looks like she's smiling.  Of the four dogs she had she took the two little ones -- a Jack Russell terrier and a dachshund, but left Boz, who is a gentle, mild-mannered bear.  Cookie is still with us, and dear to Bob's heart.

When we first moved here, there was a stray cat outside....I call her(him) Cornflake because she is so yellow.  She must have been abused by someone because she is very skittish.  I love her all the same.  Again, Heidi talked me into getting another cat; her name is Dixie.  She's a totally inside cat.  It took her awhile to come out of her hide-y hole,  but now she's king of the!

Well, I guess that's "it" of a day.  Hope you had a great day.

Is this how it's supposed to go?

Saturday Evening

I don't have any new cards to share, but I am working on one with wisteria and hardenbergia. The hardenbergia looks like small wisteria blossoms. Kate C. gave them to me awhile ago, but I am so unorganized, they got lost in a pile of other flowers. I finally found them, and delighted once more in their beauty. When I finish, I will scan it and put it on here -- I just hope I can do justice to the flowers. I'm using a piece of Lynn's handmade papers, so I want to do better just for that....not too great of aspirations, right?

This afternoon, I spent some time in the "Chitty Chat" room, as Bob calls! I had a wonderful time talking with Carolyn and Deb S. Both of them made me laugh so much that I was embarrassed...Bob was sitting in a chair near me, and I could tell he thought I was off my! Bless his sweet heart, though, he didn't say anything. That's a good thing about him (one of many): he never tells me I am being foolish, even if I am.

It surprises me when I look outside, and then at the clock and realize that it's later than it looks. It's almost 7:30 pm right now, but the sun is still shining. I imagine, though, that the days will get shorter and shorter. In the winter, the sun sets at about 5:00 pm. Those are really depressing days, that's for sure.

Hope everyone is have a great day!

Love to all....

Blackberry Lily and Morning Glory Vines/Leaves

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday and looking forward to a tremendous weekend.
I haven't written in awhile because I've been busy pressing, and sorting out my dry flowers. These flowers I pressed at Lynn's, and then she put them in the dehydrator. The colors came out really well, but the scan doesn't show it. The petals are actually a bright orange red. I used some morning glory vine and foliage to give it a more (hopefully) light hearted effect.
We've been having some muggy weather here. Yesterday, though, it was cool enough to have the a/c off, and open all the doors and windows. Boy, was that refreshing! This evening, the gloomy clouds have lifted, and the sun is peeping through.
Love to all....

Thank you, C

I forgot to tell you that Carolyn posted a beautiful card she made for my birthday on her blog site. It is one of her stamped designs.

Also, I got many happy birthday wishes, which I was very touched by.

Birthday Cards from Lynn and Sylvie

I was very pleased and impressed with the two handmade cards that Lynn and Sylvie made for me. It really made my birthday very special.

I had a wonderful time with Lynn. We did a lot of things in the five days I spent with her. I, mostly, just watched as she made handmade paper and her beautiful cards. We went to a garden, and also, went to a historical site, Bishop Hill. She made sure there wasn't many people at either place we went to, so I was comfortable. She is a wonderful cook, too, and made some fabulous meals.

I got home yesterday, but didn't do much except unpack a bit. I was really tired.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!

Love to all.....
