A new approach....I thought I would browse through my photo album and upload photos I've not yet used on my blog. Then, hopefully, I would be inspired to add comments on each picture.

What must I have been thinking taking a picture of the house on the hill. I guess this was a reminder that I should be thankful for having a good job all those years to afford me shelter, food, education.....I've never been rich with money - just rich with the important things in life. Click on the photo to get a better view. I am thankful for what I have.

Terrible picture...sorry.

And, the thread painted fabric art card....lady with red hair and lips to match. When I was a child I had an Aunt who always had really, really red hair. AND it was NOT her natural hair color. I would always say that I hoped I NEVER got as old as Aunt Mildred. Guess what??? I've been that old for years now. I can't even remember what my natural hair color is. This card was made as a reminder that I should NEVER say NEVER. I'm having a great time not having to act my age.

Then, my passport. As I said, I've never been rich with cash and have never been a world traveler. Times, they are a changin'....I've made my deposit and plan to go to the Tuscan region in Italy next year. I know, a long time away, but I'm already packing my bag (mentally, that is). I've been getting lots of good advise on what to take and not. Dearest suggested that I buy cheap underwear and trash each piece when dirtied. To Dearest, I say....I already have cheap underwear, really don't need to purchase more! I actually think this is a great idea - will give me more luggage room to bring back STUFF.

Raw edge applique fabric art card. White church on black linen. Another terrible picture...sorry. I guess this is why I've not posted this picture until today!


  1. I heard a slightly different version of the underwear advice from my husband when we went on our motorcycle trip. Bring your WORST underwear along and throw it out every day. As if underwear is taking up that much room! (You could skip it all together)

  2. You know, I think I would rather skip underwear altogether than imagine someone finding my dirty underwear in the trash can!! Men, honestly.


Thanks for stopping by...
