Tomato Pie

I'm a day late on the Bakers Review
W/ Aimee but I went ahead
with this because it was a new recipe.

It is called
Summer Tomato Pie
and has a biscuit type crust with herbs,
layers of tomato, cheese
herbs and mayonaisse.
I won't put the recipe
as it is available on

I would rate it as ok, not

Here are some repurposed items that are
going into my space at
Rusty Glamour.
The rack has jars with chalkboard tops.
I'm brimming with ideas and having a blast!

Creating New from Old

This was my first attempt at
refinishing a furniture item
from a thrift store.
I love how it turned out and
have become a painting fiend with
all kinds of new projects going on
for my home and space at
Rusty Glamour!
This was the ugliest thing you ever saw...
but really fresh and fun now.

Where does the Time go?

June 10, 2012
This day was a day that has been a long 
time in coming...38 long years in fact!
When you come from a family of
11, and there's a lot of years and miles
(New Hampshire, Florida, California
and Washington)
spread out between oldest and youngest
it's hard to get everyone together.
It was a time of sweet sorrow.
"Being together 
but knowing it's to say goodbye to a dear
Mom and Dad.
Laughing over the past,
but crying for the 3 siblings
who are already in heaven.
Saying so much 
but unable to say in words what
we really want to say."

God arranged it, 
He blessed it,
He is Love.

We love you, so much
Dad and Mom!
 Almost 67 years of married bliss-real bliss!
And faithful love and service to their Lord and Friend.
Kathy, Anne, Lois, Mary, Faith, Martha
David, Mom, Dad and me

A Very Hungry Kids Room

I've been helping with some decorating
of my grand babies room.
Because it has to be shared by a girl
and a boy we used a Pottery Barn
shared room as inspiration.
Here are my knock-offs
painted on 20x30 canvases.

I changed the butterfly a little to coordinate
with the bedding.
I also made pillows etc which I will show
in a post later.

My Oldest is 30!

My daughter Shana turned 30 yesterday!
We spent the day in Silver Falls Park
hiking and watching the little ones
be so excited about waterfalls and
rivers, bugs and sticks!
Then we finished our day with a yummy
BBQ in the park.

Let's play Store!

I am so excited to have gotten a space
at Rusty Glamour on Main St
of my home town!
I managed to fill the whole space chock 
full with the things I still
had left from our sale, so it was 
a super easy event. 
My spot is in the back right 
just before the corner.
