"Sister's Day Out"

We 'Sisters on the Fly' gals don't always hang out in campgrounds,,,every now and then we get cleaned up, throw on some lipstick & mascara and go have fun,,,at the local winery! lol!
Sherry suggested we meet up at Arbor Crest Winery up on the hill for a light lunch, glass or two of wine and a good old fab-u-los girlfriend fest..... Perfect weather, perfect food, perfect wine and perfect friends!

 (L to R) Karen, Bonnie, Me, Florence, Sherry, Carolyn, (front)Toni and Deeanne.
 Bonnie, Karen, Florence, Sherry & Carolyn.
 We are the (former) SO. CAL Gals... Sherry was from Simi, I am from Newbury Park and Deeanne & Toni are from the San Diego area.
 Ok,  I was laughing so hard I thought I would piddle my panties..... Seriously!  lol!
"Girls just wanna hanve Fun"...and we did!  Thanks to Sherry organizing us! 
Oh and we have to give Mother Nature a great big Thanks for perfect weather!

Yard Sale Bliss...

So this past weekend as I was heading over to "KampKarens"... I spotted a yard sale,,,, threw the old Jeep into park and spotted all kinds of "OMG! I gotta have that's "......
I luv vintage tinware and anything 1950-60's.. imagine my joy when I found these two goodies....

 This bread tin is in pretty darn good shape, no dents or rust...... and I luv the red rose and dots motif...
I also luv Cake tins..... just think, someone's mom or Grandmother baked cakes and stored them in this...
I have about a dozen cake tins, from metal to plastic. Some are round and some are square...but each has it's own story. I especially luv the well worn, scratched, dented ones...because they were used over and over.... I can almost taste the fresh baked cakes that were stored in these tins.

I will be away from my computer on Sept.5 thru the 7th
Once again I will be hitting the trails, but this time with out my trailer,,,,I will be traveling the Bitterroot mountains, old Lewis & Clark trails by horse back and tent with 7 fab-u-los ladies who, like me, have a spirit for adventure. We will be out of range of cell, internet and indoor plumbing.... just experienceing God's beautiful creation.
Hubby is home holding down the Fort & taking care of our kitties and keeping everything watered.
I'll tell you all about my adventures when I return.
Hugz & Happy Trails,

Grapes, Peanut Bags,Pillow and Hammock!

 Wahooo! the beginnings of my Wine Empire! lol!, ok, maybe not an Empire, or even a bottle of wine,,, but finally one of my 3 grape vines produced grapes this year! Now to get to them before the birds do! lol!
 At a recent yard sale I scooped up 4 peanut burlap sacks... for 10cents each! Score! Now to get creative  and come up with a super crafting idea for them. (besides deco pillows) lol!
 I finally got around to making aother pillow out of a cast off Pendleton wool lap what do you think?
 This is the back side,,, I had just enough faux tooled leather fabric to complete the pillow backing.
OK, I know I have been snacking a lot lately,,, but Seriously!?!  Imagine my surprise while sitting in my hammock, watching my little Peek-a-boo kitty chase after 'hoppers' (grasshoppers)... I heard a funny sound and next thing I knew, my bottom was on the ground! ...Guess it's time to pull out the old "Slim-fast"... lol!
