My Mother In Law's Buttons

I've had these buttons for years- my m-i-l produced hometown plays, and did everything- even the costumes! These were some of her buttons, I want to do something with them, but don't want to mess with them--what a dilema! Aren't they beautiful, though? And REALLY vintage- still in the same box!

happy belated turkey day-

I'm excited-- I just got a google email telling me I was featured on Etsy Vintage Blog-----> see the avatar over on the right side?

and---I sold this today- and isn't it a kick? Someone was looking for a tacky Christmas decoration, and this was it! It was entitled 'I'm Joy, Your Holiday Pixie'! I added the picture here, earlier- so wave goodbye to Joy- she's traveling back east on Monday ;>)

gift envies?

I've been making these, but they're so tiny, they're probably only good for earring gifts... any ideas?

Another picture...

Jillie is rolling her 'red' eyes at something! ;>)

The twinnies had their Investiture Ceremony...

for Daisy Girl Scouts tonight- It was at 7- by 7:45 the sugar high had set in!

Check out the picture-----


Jojo with the funny face on the end, Jillian, the sane one ( for tonight) and their friends- another set of twins, who live across the street from them. We call them 'The Quads'!

the winds are dying down for now........

we live in Orange County, CA, and yesterday was a worrisome day- the firestorms were so dreadful and so much property was lost-

for the first time, our area was slightly threatened- but enough that my logical thinking husband said that we should get our needed items ready, if we had to evacuate. That frightened me almost more than the fires.....and he's the one recovering from strokes!

everything is covered with ash, and embers were flying for miles, but since the wind has died down, for now- hopefully the firefighters will get more control. So many fires...

my button box----

I can't believe it's been 3 months!

*****one of the bracelets I've been working on and just listed on etsy********
well- I guess I can- my computer has been on the fritz for about 3 months, so........
I have been crafting and such, and taking pictures, but not able to upload anything, or even see anything most days.

So---in the meantime, I've missed lots of challenges, but when I finally got to see everything- in etsy beadweaver's challenges and cccoe challenges--everything was great~

I've listed some new things, and even sold something last night while I was cracking out listing stuff, so there is something good to come of all this bad stuff.

Oh--and I'm extremely happy with the results of the election, gobama!;>)
