our only grandson loves to spend time at our house and we enjoy having him ~~ he request to "cut out" cookies was granted and we had fun making up shapes for the season..seems his mom had borrowed most of the gingerbread cutters, so we were being creative with different kitchen tools...anyway we shared frosting then eating them ~ ! this season has been different for me, not having my son home this year was disappointing, but he does plan to return home for the birth of his new niece(we hope) or nephew this spring. Also had to cut back on some of the Christmas activities and creative gift making, due to both knees acting up again, so thankful for cortizone..wish it had lasted longer this time..plan to take some pics of the holiday decorations and vingettes i did manage to create..
nothing not quite like growing your hair from short to almost shoulder-length in a year, then having to cut it back to about an inch all over! long sad story of a chemical reaction from perm.. yikes, crispy fritters all over! will try to post pics later so you can see..in the end, a master stylist and her excellent advice made this story end on a good note~~ played easter bunny with mom saturday, visited one of her old friends in nursing home..i had made up a huge basket with goodies that i thought she would enjoy..mom later said she was blessed as well as the recipient..that was an answer to prayer!
i forgot to add to picture of ethan that this from about 4 yrs ago..daughter lisa and now hubby mac carlson decided to get ethan a couple of easter chicks..guess who ended up keeping and feeding them...ethan loved them even when they were tickling him..but after a few months they grew to be big enough to intimidate him..so we had to find a farm for them..they wanted their own room from what i heard .....
i almost forgot the inner workings of blogging..plus i can't seem to spell this am, only had one cuppa coffee...that must be why...i have decided to share this blog with my family and friends on facebook..i have especially picked music to nurture my soul and some of the stuff is kinda artsy so not everyone will appreciate that part..let me know if you like the music i've chosen...
welcome to my blog! i love to decorate, especially country french style mixing with primitive pieces, antiques and redesigned junke...i also have a grandson and another on the way! who has been our pride and joy for over 9 years, i have recently discovered mixed media and things in my junk/studio haven't been the same since! i have made many typewriter key bracelets over the past 3 years, but find myself shifting gears..i took an online class with joAnnA Pieretti ....i've discovered some wonderful other blogs that i am follow, all beautiful artistic work i've discovered from being a member of joAnnAs mosshillstudiosworkshops...http://mosshillstudioworkshops.ning.com/profile/Zannehart

poor little angel
sweet little girl, had so much to lose..but freely shares what she does have left, she remembers her origins ..she is still a child of God, with her lovely pink roses tattoo still intact, her one wing exposed is made of mica from the black hills, her shawl is made from a piece of found goatskin and remnants of her old mink-lined suede cape, her buckle is an old token, her locket from an old sweetheart, her tiny diary given to her long ago from her best friend, kerchief and backpack are made from found old quilt from attic, pocket is old kid leather glove finger, pocket on top of green salvage of cape is embellished with her last bead, her base is a stand used to hold bills ~~her purpose is to remind us to give freely..just as God did...His only son~~~
