Since I featured my cats for Halloween last year, they just assumed it's going to be an annual thing, so they are posing for their photo shoot. Isabella says; Wait Mama, I'm not in the shot.There, that's better. Is this my best side?

Brad's band (Midnight Son) performs Johnny B. Goode. This is a short clip -- less than a minute -- of them playing at a Homeless Mission. Twice recently, they have given up their Friday nights to play there for free, and entertain those less fortunate. They are all teenagers, and I'm proud of them. Hope you enjoy the clip!! :)

Here we are at about 15. You can't see it in the photo, but we had matching tan boots on. Are you laughing at the pose yet? Guess we thought we were fashion models with those snazzy hats and those boots!! LOL!!
The little flowerpot now resides on my studio creating table....... a lovely reminder to "follow your dreams".

My latest collection -- vintage heart pin cushions. I found the first one at my favorite antique shoppe, then picked up two more on our recent trip to Indiana.
I also found this crochet/ribbon piece, that I thought would be perfect to put as a "garter" around a basket. It happened to fit this one perfectly.
I like the different variations on all of them. And the fact that they all have some pink in them. The ruffles on this one are so sweetly done!

I have been working on our bedroom, as I move things from there into my new studio. I just love all the room it is opening up (I've already designated a spot or two for Christmas trees to be placed soon!)
I also would like to mention a new blog for you to visit,

I like how this apron pocket almost looks like a heart. :)This one provides full coverage!! I love the colors of it (when I was photographing it, I discovered the price tag still on it -- twenty-five cents from a garage sale :) Apron strings.....
Vintage child's apron Pretty blue and pink....
Do you use an apron? I must admit, mine are just for display. My mom wore aprons when I was growing up, but I don't think she kept any of them. I like to picture my mom in the kitchen; such happy memories of her showing her love by cooking for her family.
