My Tuesday {Ten}

Surprise lilies make a great bouquet.  I love using the old Ball jar for a vase.  When you get up close you can see a touch of blue/purple on the end of the petals.  Never noticed that before.
The Rose of Sharon bush has bloomed like crazy this summer…my cub scout den planted it probably 8 or 9 years ago.  That was such a fun project, they all got really dirty and loved it!
Queen Anne’s Lace is one of my favorites…
I am starting to work on some projects for a craft show this fall.
Pins and pumpkins…
I took this on a dare from my sister and my mom.  It was a Christmas wreath covered with some really gruesome white carnations and some red berries and a hideous green ribbon that was polyester.   So I am going to try to make some thing out of the 1970s craft disaster!
Trying to get my dog Rachel to look at the camera, she instead chose to look at my feet…but the cat kept looking at me.  Friday we took Rachel out to the farm (my brother and sister in law’s house).  She always rides in the back seat and sticks her head out the window and barks all the way there.  We usually have the windows half down and she has never acted like she was going to jump…well, Friday she jumped/fell out of the car while it was moving (only 35 mph thankfully).  She was fine (except for some abrasions on her underbelly) but looked so confused…and the dog she was barking at ran back to his porch and stayed there.  No more barking from Rachel the rest of the way.  From now on those windows are more than half up!
This is Frosty, the wonder cat…he used to be an indoor cat and now is an indoor/outdoor cat.  He always has the deer in the headlights look when he is outside.  Occasionally he climbs a tree and can’t figure out how to get down.
The little swing my son made when he was little…he wanted a swing but we really didn’t have much of a place to hang a swing.  He spent many hours in that swing.

What a small world, I found you through your post today on Sew Many ways.
I live in Jefferson city.
I see you talk about a craft show this fall. We will be doing the Heritage Festival at Nifong Park in Sept. Is that the one you are doing? My husband is a blacksmith, www.osagebluffblacksmith.blogspot.com

HI Ellen, I'm getting the site Suzi and I was delighted with the gear you do, in fact, everything was wonderful from the photos, floral garlands and felting. Beautiful, beautiful, that resulted in shades of blue was lovely, congratulations. It will start to follow you to learn something!
Hugs, Dolly
