Super Bowl Sunday!

 Snow started last night....
 .....and it's still snowing! We could receive up to 10 inches!
This is a great day to stay warm and cozy inside...maybe I should start planning a valentine project using old valentines cards. I will print them individually on cream fabric and frame them with my red and white fabrics.    
 I could knit awhile---however, 
Miss "Abbie" has my project and is keeping me in stitches! 
Snow, working on some projects, Super Bowl watching.... and making Chili... is perfect for today and tonight!
Hoping you are having a great day!
Hugs, Carolyn

A Special Time of the Year!

 The eve before..... 
and all is bright..... 
and the table is set---- 
with  the center piece too!

                                                            A letter to "Santa" written ....
                                           my mother Virginia Lee in 1919

We made Mildred's (mother-in-law) "Christmas Gum Drop" Bread.    
We awakened this morning--- light dusting of snow arrived just in time!
Wishing you and your families our "Special Blessings".

"Time for Thanksgiving"

Linda and Carol were "Elves" helping me with the Edgewater Christmas Boutique held a week ago. 
My two new friends ( Deb and Joyce) came to visit. They both live in our townhome area. 
I'm getting ready to be a vendor at the Market on 39th Street, December 6th and 7th, featuring over fifty vendors selling antiques, pottery, scarves, jewelry, art, baked goods and lot's more! 
We wish you a wonderful "Thanksgiving"!
We did a little decorating in our lower level with bittersweet and flowers we made from hedge apples. (Click on the pictures for a closer look).   

We also had fun creating a (fall) arrangement with a tree.  
 Thanksgiving blessings to you and your family!

Fall Vignette's Inside and Out!

'"Punkie" is greeting you with a smile as you enter! 

So is "Stella" our witch.
We had fun gathering  pumpkins and gourds for display.
Made this "Happy and Bad Jack's" quilt from a pattern featured  in a Fons & Porter magazine a few years ago.

"Scary" our scarecrow sits on our lower patio and greets everyone on the bike path---
------ so does "Chester!"
This is where I create and work on projects...I have been organizing---- 
----and tidiing up a bit
----where I sew!
Meet "Dee", my friend of 45+ years, who moved to North Carolina in 2011. She designs quilt and needlepoint patterns. Previous to her move she was magazine editor of 
 *makeability, Fons & Porter and  Love of  Knitting. In 2006 she wrote the quilt book
Applique at Play...Learn more about DeElda  by visiting her blog and website!
 Trees and bushes are starting to show their fall colors and---
----our front porch has been a delight! 

That's all for now----- 
"My eyes will be looking out for all the beggar's!"
