menu plan monday ~ august 14, 2017

I spent most of last week cleaning up the craft room. I finally found the counters. Among many other things I located, I also found three Putz houses and a Putz church that had been painted and then forgotten. I put panes in the windows and then found matching bases for the houses. I need […]

Our garden has received much needed rain and the grass is looking greener and the flowers are looking fresher. This past weekend, I used surprise lilies, crepe myrtle, and hosta flowers for the Sunday bouquet. I captured a little video of Clark. He likes to hang out on the banister in the upstairs hall.

Life has been very busy the past several days. Today it has slowed down a bit. I am working on this blue and white Putz church. I like the contrast between the dark blue and the white. I am adding silver embellishments. Maybe some white or clear, too. We shall see how it goes. Winston […]

Last Saturday, DH and I went to my Dad’s house for a family reunion. I shared a picture of Dad and his siblings in my last post. Another highlight of the afternoon was a drawing for two quilts that had been made by my paternal grandmother and her mother. The first quilt was won by […]

Last week went by quickly. I’ve been working on Putz house bases. When the houses are done, the picture will be on the bottom of the base. A little surprise when the house is turned over. I think I will put a barn on the one with the cowboy and the horse. I especially like […]

Hello, again! I have taken a long leave of absence from my blog. But now I am ready to start up again. I’ll begin with Menu Plan Monday. I have been working on a couple of new Putz patterns and will share those in another post. Yesterday DH and I celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. […]

We are tolerating winter’s brief show and looking forward to later in the week when spring is expected to return. Twice the past week, we had a light dusting of snow that melted away in the afternoon. I hope that is the last of winter for us till the end of the year. The menu […]

We had plenty of fridge food (leftovers) to use for the first part of the week, so I put off menu planning till today. The grands are coming over Friday evening to spend the weekend. Just in case we really do get some snow on Saturday. If we do, they will enjoy playing in it. […]
