Good Evening, dear hearts..
Hope all is well with thee..
Another very cold day here in the Eastern Canada...
Terry went to the farm and I stayed home..
I am starting to get that overwhelmed feeling..
So many projects started and nothing finished..
We have been going up there so much that I am now lagging behind..
Well, that is my story and I am sticking to it.. grin..
I wanted to introduce you, though, to someone pretty special..
Please let it be known that I am not a dog person..
We have Sammi and of course I love him because ...
Well.. just because..
But someday I would like a cat and chickens and 3 sheep..
You have to admit that he is pretty cute..eh?
He is a Wrinkle Dog or some such thing..
Dustin received his Christmas present early from his girlfriend..
He is showing Sammi his wrinkles..
Poor Sam... He is wondering what I think of this guy..
Well, just so I don't bore you completely I will show you bits of my week..
Some homemade maple granola..
My friend who lives in St. Martins calls me a granola..
Or is it a granola want-to-be? grin..
You all know what that means .. Right?
If not just ask me and I will tell you.... smile...
Here is a bag of things I bought this Summer at a yard sale or someplace like that..
What would you do with them?
Here is what I did to them today..
Remember that they are only just started..
I will show you the finished project in a day or so, I hope..
Do I have your imagination going, I wonder..
Then here are some pieces of vintage quilt tops..
All tea dyed and ready to be turned into something for a gift..
Using my preserved lemons.. Yummy....
I talked about them HERE..
Remember, I mentioned that I had bought an old Santa at Thrift for three dollars...
He is humongous..grin..
Well, I tore off all of that fake stuff..
Eyes, brows, beard, etc..
And painted and sewed on a new face..
Glued on some sheep's wool...
Sprayed him with some homemade coffee dye..
Several coats actually..
Had to lay him on a chair and dry away..
He needs another coat before I go to bed..
To make a nice spray all I did was make some strong
instant coffee and put several drops of my kindred spirit oil in it..
Put it in a spray bottle and spray away..
He smells good enough to hug.. grin..
We are not real Santa people..
Christmas is about Christ but there is a bit of a child in me that remembers the fun of my Dad teasing me and saying that Santa's elves lived in our attic.. smile..
And here is another dear little thrift store find...
I know Suzanne or Paula will want these.. smile..
They went to the farm for my new shelf...
And last but not least..
Did someone say the word diet around here..
Not with that real bacon and homemade croutons..
Well, my friends..
I am so glad you dropped by ..
You are awesome and I thank you for your lovely comments and notes...
I just love them...
Going to town tomorrow and then to Bible Study so I will catch up with you again soon..
Take care and may you have joy and peace..
