3rd Birthday

It was a monster truck bash,
and it had to be green!
That's what my 3 year old
grandson wanted!





He drove the truck up and down the frosting hill
and that made him very happy:)

August (A Little Late)

"August is hot. Opulent, tired, thirsty, hot...
She asks no questions about the purpose of life,
is heavy with answers as a cow with milk
 coming up the pasture lane at days end.
 A child is to play and get into mischief
 and do his chores and eat and sleep and grow...
August is the meeting place of the currents of the year.
She feels the meeting within her,
the waters from many directions 
surging into a mighty eddy;
but she is not shaken by it, 
encompasses it calmly
 as she carried her children to full term 
despite their struggles to find a way out
 of the pocket in which she held them
 until it was time for them to go.
She is even faintly amused by the surging
 and eddying as she was by the struggles of her unborn."

Outfit for a Little Lass

This coat and bloomers was made
for a very special little lady
Juniper Kate
 who was born on her 
Great-Great Grandma's
( My Mom)
Birthday.
The coat is called a Brunch Coat
and the fabric was one I was saving for
some special project.

One Year Birthday

The month has flown by and I still haven't posted 
Beckham's
one year birthday!
I did a Camping Theme
 With a tent and campfire cake...
 The cutest bear ever for the don't feed the bears sign...
 Lanterns, sticks and pinecones.
 The birthday boy did not think it appropriate to 
eat with his fingers,
he requested a fork and carefully
ate one forkful at a time!
His older brother however put his whole
face on top of a s'more bar
and had marsh mallows stuck to his face:)

July

"July is the beginning of the year's prime of life...
The long days roll by on greased axles,
laden with tall grass, new-cut and drying in the sun,
the corn knee-high and ready for hoeing,
potatoes, squashes and pumpkins in bloom,
sweet peas climbing up chicken wire to cover the shed wall
with pink, white, red and lavender,
pond lilies starring every spring-fed pool of water
and filling a washtub under the dooryard tree.
The nights are short and the dark is thin and soft,
a-twinkle with  fireflies,
heavy with the heat of the sun 
which has scarcely gone down
when the east begins to brighten,
and rich with the smell of fruit and flowers and swamp
and the sea on the other side of the mountain."

Porch #1

This is my front porch...
or is it the back porch...
maybe it is actually the side porch!
Anyway it is where I walk in when I
park my car:)




I just love a porch.

New Look in the Booth

I've been working hard to get 
a lot of new items into my booth
at Rusty.
It was a super fun way to create
and I love the little bit country,
little bit rock and roll:)
