My Crops and Janis Joplin

Happy Sunday

I am glad to be home today.I have been clearing out my 2 flowers beds as the flowers and elephant ears start sagging to the ground. I cut down my 14 foot tall sunflowers.The biggest sunflower I grew this year is 14 inches across then 12 inches and 8 inches. They were so heavy the stems were almost bent completely over.The biggest one has my sunglasses on it for comparision size.


Here I am standing in front of my giant elephant ears which my grandsons loves because they are so big


I am hoping to get in the studio this afternoon and finish a project, one of many sitting around. I love being in the studio with my pretties and rhinestones etc.
                                                                   

Yesterday I went to Arrow Rock Missouri to the Lyceum Theatre to see the production of BeeHive , It was 6 girls singing songs from the 1960's . All that was there was a bunch of old people like me that was a teeager in the 1960's haha. It was lots fun and I sang all the songs and screamed and hollered haha right along with others. The men liked the Janis Joplin personation the best, they was yelling and clapping when the girl sang Cry. Then she sang Piece of My Heart
The singers were all excellent however she was most authentic.

Well better get busy, I miss joining in on the weekly parties. I'm still hanging in at my new job

White Plates

Hi

I am still plugging away at my 40 hour a week job at my ripe ole age. Making money for a new Mercedes or a 2nd house on an island LOL

I called a friend this morning and we got to talking dishes imagine that anyway we was talking about collecting odd white lunch and dinner plates.So I got to looking in cabinets and drawers for what white plates I still have.

My Favorite are these 8 inch lunch plates that remind me of the majolica green cabbage dishes

             


Then I found 12 of these small pie plates in a resale shop once for 50 cents apiece I just had to bring them home and have never had 12 people over for a piece of pie yet. They look as they never was used


      

This stack of  Ralph Lauren plates I found at Dillards on a clearance table in the pattern whipstitch

              


     


I had to show some lace today also since I was looking for a lace tablecloth in mt stack,I want to make a large oversize top out of. Pictured these are just lace collars I have on a mannequin in the studio . I'm in the mood to sew and since I am also off Monday for the holiday maybe I can get my sewing table at least cleaned off to get started on my project

                                   





Thanks for checking in one me
