Back in 2013

Just ran across a post I did  in 2013 where I was wondering why ladies quit blogging with no explanations. I'm having hot tea and doing this post before I start another yard cleaning day outside

I am getting lots done,yard work most of yesterday and had help with little grandsons ages 6 and 9.

I had a chandelier outside hanging in a tree over the patio and took it down since all the crystals was blown off ,guess the birds carried them off?

Quit Blogging ?

I have always wondered why ladies quit blogging after so many years and lots post? I have had several bloggers who I loved their blogs just quit, no explanations why. I wish they would say, I'm tired of writing post, or I just don't have anything else to say,or i'm into something else now. Just say something, you know write a goodbye post, let us down easy.

I started blogging for entertainment, I was a widow at 60, my kids all live away from me two in Oregon, My sisters are busy with their families.My married girlfriends have their husbands, some still have college kids at home. I'm home alone with my male cat Shirlee. I blog, feed birds, feed stray cat. Visit an old man in a assisted living complex at a senior village. I use to shop a lot until cost of living like health insurance and personal  property taxes have gone up considerably. I go mass sometimes 2-3 times a week.  Am I whining? LOL yes I am

I need to take up new interest, like walking and exercising and lifting weights to get some muscle tone back, if possible at my age ? I once read where a lady at age 70 started doing this and had excellent success and of course she looked great again.

In the spring I work in my flower beds a lot and that really takes a lot of my time which I thoroughly enjoy digging in the dirt and seeing the results during blooming season.

I am just taking a BREAK for a while. I will be back

Bird House

I am one to feed birds all winter and last year continued feeding them a lot in the summer.I have mentioned before I have a heated birdbath for the birds to drink out of when it's below freezing. However this last week it has been in 70's.

          This is a ceramic bird house I found online and loved it and thought I had to have it.   It's my indoor bird house                                                      
This would be so cute hanging out on a screened in porch, since I don't have one I just move it around the house . I have a lot of blue and white dishes and ceramic flower pots to sort of match this also. I am rearranging today as I dust.

It's still a nice day here in central Missouri. My flower beds are bone dry the dirt is like sawdust so I got my water hose out of the garden shed and watered my dirt LOL in my beds. It did sprinkle a little last night not enough to help this dry spell we are in .
I am home doing house work so must get back to it . Thanks for checking my stories out. Wouldn't a huge bird house like this be fabulous ?

Coffee Keys

Do any of you remember seeing these cans at your grandparents home? or maybe your home  back in the day ? I can remember me wanting to open cans of coffee with the little key with a hole in it to latch onto a tab on the coffee can. I bought this can at an auction back in the 1980's and have always kept it because it reminds me of my days when I was in grade school. The can was full of the little keys.

Now I know you younger girls out there won't know anything about these LOL It's for the generation gals who lived in the 1950-1960's

Then again I'm telling my age

Just another thing tucked away in the studio

Day of Love

Just showing a few hearts in the studio this pre Valentine's Day. This heart was found at an after Christmas sale. I tore off all the holly and berries and Christmas bow and here it is all a new for Valentine's Day

 I had to stand my angel in a chair to get her full size.I think they look good together.

Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day Weekend

            This is a old wall hanging quilt from years gone by also a few things I have had for sometime that I am sharing today. There is so many pretty things for Valentine's day on all blogs, mine are just simple little hearts in the studio                                  
 hanging on the wall in my sewing room
 A heart pin cushion I made years ago hanging from bottom of a shelf
 This is a little vintage card I got of courses years ago, seems like I have had lots of things for years
 I always kept these out of magazines, just to darn cute to throw away, I have a drawer just for these. I have cut some of these pages up previously and used them on Valentine Day cards

All we need is Love
