Black Challenge #3

 I used an old poloroid camera bag for this
challenge. I cut off the handle, sewed a new one,
and put lots of travel stamps all over the chipped spots.
The finished product is still a camera bag,
but for my digital camera and accessories!
The inside is a nice, soft felt so I didn't have to
do anything with that.

Black Challenge #2

My craft challenge this month was an
easy one as I had picked up this 12x12 frame
without the glass
at a garage sale for .25 and knew
what I could use it for.
This idea is from Creative Memories...
so thanks!

Start of the Holiday Season!

The Holiday Sales and Bazaars are in full swing
starting tomorrow!
But tonight "Main St. Station" in Battleground
was the beginning of the season for me.
They had their store open for some evening hours
and had everything done up so beautifully...
check out the "chandelier" above the table!
The gals who put this stores' displays
together have a real eye for 
the vintage look. 
Ge sure to check it out tomorrow if you have time.

Wee Wee Slide!

My grandaughter and I took advantage of another
beautiful Fall day and went to the park.
She calls the slide and swing 
"wee wee slide".
She goes down and then hollers to me
"Gamma, you do it!"
so I go down the slide too!
Over and over...and over!
I remember this age well from my kids,
they never tire of a playground.
(Gramma however will probably need
a chiropractor and a massage, playing
is exhausting:)

I Think it is November?

 I am sitting outside in the brilliant sunshine,
with the heat on my face,
doing my hand sewing...
it feels like July...
But when I look up, and see this,
it sure doesn't look like July!
It looks like November!
This is one day in a million and I hope
every one of you NW people enjoyed
it to its' fullest.
