I am glad that I am not moving. I have to admit that I enjoy my home and am very content. I do love to travel and would dearly love to own a camper with a bathroom so we could get out and do some weekend excursions.
So, here I sit, already to head out and yet must wait for a while to hear back from daughter...oh wait, here's the phone...she does not need me this morning, so I am heading out. Taking the camera, so hope to have some photos to share. Enjoy this extra day!

Are you beginning to feel like I do, that the month of February has lasted wayyyyyy too long? I mean, it has been 3 weeks since Valentine's day and that was the middle of the month, right? And if it isn't bad enough, we have LEAP DAY. Well tomorrow is up for grabs, once every 4 years, am I correct?
My road trip was interesting and I am glad I went, but not epiphany, no light bulb, no green light. oh well.......................
March has many good things ahead which includes at least 2 real-deal road trips. One with my dh to Myrtle Beach and another with good tea buddies, somewhere, haven't decided that one yet. Also birthdays for my mother and Camryn Lee and Olivia Breen...two of my granddaughters. And of course, St. Patrick's Day Parade and Easter too. So March has many highlights ahead....not to mention spring.
Hope you have some highlights to anticipate in March!

I can only post briefly as I am off on a mini road trip. Meeting a lady on a tea-related business introductory-type get-together.....whew...lots of hyphens there, or dashes, or whatever you call 'em. Can't say much now, but will fill you in as soon as I have something worthwhile to say!
The weather is glorious, I am semi-excited and that is enough. Wish I had a neat picture to post, but alas, I am lacking.....not much else is newsworth....later

I have become a "regular" at JoAnns.....don't hate me! But most of the time I just browse.....there are not alot of places to shop for fabric but that certainly is going to change...I am good at anticipating trends! Just last week I had to buy this lovely little book by Cath Kidston...wow is she amazing or what?
Take a peek inside to whet your whistle....some pretty awesome ideas on vintage fabric re-usage!
More stellar ideas! I need to stop the blogging and get to creating!
After a bit more peeking, you may decide you have to have these books too...well try http://www.alibris.com/ first, they are a great source of "used" and new books at tremendous discounts. Postage is steep, but when you pay pennies for the book, you can splurge on the postage, right? I am starting with lounging pj bottoms, which I LOVE wearing....flannel is so cozy and there are so many choices in prints and so I am making a couple of pairs just to warm up my sewing skills. I will let you know how it goes! I want to make tons of other stuff....easy stuff....not suits or lined jackets or cowboy shirts...I have a dear friend who does all that and it just wears me out. I want fast, easy, cheap and adorable and I want it fast (did I mention that already?)

So, as you can see....I was very bad....and of course Floretta noticed....how could you miss an aligator with a heart in his mouth and a king kong cupcake????? with sprinkles, no less.
What else can I say except, they sure are cute!!!
I have gotten out some of my springie things just because our weather is now in the mid 70s....wow, my back porch door is wide open and the fresh breezes are blowing, it is great, but you will see, the leaves are still not budding, altho if this weather continues we are probably going to get some early blooms....daffs are up and beginning to bloom as well as the kwanza cherry trees (really pretty).
Part of our parlor
A cupboard in our great room
A closeup of the top, looks nice....
So, that's a bit of what is going on here at my place on Arrowhead Way.....
Our power went off and so will "save" this post and log off as I am using up battery power right now...don't know why the power is off.....

These were not easy to figure out how to transport home, but, all is well, they are ready to go!
