- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Painting moving my brush!
I've always had an interest in painting. Years ago it was ceramics, and then I painted a few things with oil paints, I stopped only because financially it got expensive. Over the years, my interest never really wained, I just did other things and didn't have the time or ambition to continue. Donna Dewberry came on the scene and I was mesmerized by the ease with with she paints beautiful cabbage roses..
.Not so much when I paint, but I am practicing. I've began to dedicate an hour or two daily to practice because this is something I want to learn to do. Bob Ross, bless his sweet heart painted beautiful landscapes, I have his starter kit too..easy peasy when your watching...so I need to stop watching and move the brush!
I found this magazine at the grocery store....
Look at those Zinnias!
I'm going to try my hand at these.
.I need to find the perfect something to paint them on.
