VD and Spring (Well one can dream)

Even tho I'm getting better, still moving pretty slow.  Since I have realized pain medication may make your body better, it is messing with my already questionable mind resources.  Some how I just don't get everything the way I use to.  (Notice I blame the meds not the age)  Because we are being threatened with 2 feet of snow, I have to make chicken noodle soup, start a great fire in the fireplace and figure out a great dessert.  Do you have an electronic pressure cooker?  It is one of the best things since sliced bread.  Throw it all in, even frozen chicken, and minutes later you have dinner.  Your soup will be done before you can get your Jiffy corn muffins made.  (not an endorsement of Jiffy, but it sure is good).   I would like to show you some of my VD's.

This is my pie safe.
VD is coming along.

Next time even more.  In the mean time

Hope and Hugs to all.  

I'm so excited!

Here in the Midwest the snow it is a blowing.  They say we are going to get up to 2 feet.  Now don't get me wrong I love the winter time.  I do have to say tho, I'm ready for some sun.  Well I digress.  I'm excited because two of my very favorite bloggers are following me!  I have to say this is even better than a ray of sunshine.  These ladies are generous with their knowledge, and their resources.  Please take the time to visit with them.  I promise you won't be disappointed!  Of course now I get to learn something else new.  I want to be a follower of theirs.  Wish me luck.  But it is great to know they will be there to help me find my way should I get lost in the maze of bloggdom.Thank you again Dear Connie & Miss Rhea.

Working on my creative space

I'm still on the mend so moving along is slow.  At least I am moving.  I decided to do a little in each area rather than complete one thing at a time.  I don't know why but I seem to feel better to see some progress in each area. Still trying to decide how to best use my creative space.  But it is a little better than last you saw it.  Well as I said it looks better to me anyway.  I'd love to know what you think.

I just enjoy looking at my pretties.  They really do inspire me.

Of course reality has to set in at some point!

On to decorating for VD & spring.  I'm also trying to learn how to do my favorite lists.  So many of you inspire me and help me to keep going.  I hope I'll get it right soon.  Until then

Hope and Hugs to all

I've fallen but I will get up

After the year I've had, I can't believe I began with a broken back, and ended with a fractured sternum!  I have never had a broken anything.  True I do have several maladies, but I work hard to keep ahead of them.  I know this year has been rough in many ways for a number of people, so let's let it go.


I am finally wrapping up Christmas decorations, and I am ready for new pretties to look at. It is amazing to me how much a pretty decor can lift my spirits

Even a small change makes a difference.  I know I didn't show you what it looked like at Christmas, but it was different.  I don't think my mantle will stay the same, but I had to put something up to look at!
Now I need to decide how to handle my studio, (and I use the word losely). I just started it this year after I was able to move around from my back surgery.  It went from being my daughters room, to being a bonus room, to being my creative room.  

Now I can't decide if I want it to be pretty and inspirational, or more functional.  I began pretty, now I had to clean it up so you could see it!

I would really appreciate some of your thoughts,  as I am new to having my own room for creating.  Well at least I have gotten up.  I'm ready for Valentine's and Spring RIGHT NOW!!

Hope and Hugs to all
