Life is a Blessing <><


My husband is such a good sport about helping me in the kitchen...but somehow my Dancing Cow Apron does not fit him the same as it fits me! LOL!
My kitties are standing guard of me & our Thanksgiving Turkey. I am wearing my "Oma's" vintage Dirndle Apron. Then I had to switch to my Klassy Kat apron before serving dinner to my family.
Recently I went to the Muesem of Art & Culture with some delightful friends....There was the most wonderful display of turn of the century dresses....the ladies that wore these dresses were truly petite! I have not had a 20" waist since I was in the 4th grade! The detail & workmanship on these dresses is awesome.

Loving my Retirement...


The latest of my Apron creations! This one is perfect for Martini time!

Here I am working on the scrollsaw, don't look to closely or you will see primer pint on my hands...

Back in September my daughter & I played hookey from responcibilities and snuck over to Coeur D' Alene, Idaho for a sunny afternoon of strolling, eating & shopping, something we are very good at!.

Notice the matching shirts? That is my hubby~Gary(he is the one on the left~LOL!) The turkey (one on the right~ more LOL!) was cut out by my hubby & painted by our daughter for a local Garden Nursery.

Last but not least,,, our first snow here in Spokane, WA. It was 6:30am & both my hubby & I were out side in our jammies taking pictures of the snow to send back to our family & friends back in California. Sadly it was melted away by mid day.

As always if you click on the pictures you will get a closer view...
