I love this!

My blog hopping is all about looking for new paper crafts now a days.

I love that people have more of a imagination than I do.

I found this on Pinterest.

I joined, but since I am such a computer dummy I can't figure out how to pin and pic.

So I save them and you get to see them.

Stay tuned for more ....

It is Spring and I got a itch. I am ready and dying to go junkin. I need a road trip. Hit the back roads and hunt for antique/junk shops. I love it! Now all I need is time. But with spring comes alot of events. Hubby gets really busy in spring. And every spring I get the itch. We visited Gardendale Flea Mall last weekend, but it didn't do it. I need a weekend.

We both enjoy junkin and the time alone.

We rarely find great deals but we are together and love the hunt. We enjoy just riding. I guess I can say we enjoy each other company. For a few days anyway.

So dear hubby, just a few words of advise....

When Mama aint happy, no one is happy.

Take me some where or you will have to deal with my wrath. LOL

I always try and find paper works from auction and estate sales. You could say I am nosey or I love to read what was written before. Hand written. I have letters from my relatives that has passed. I always ask for something that is written by their own hand. When my aunt Inez passed a few years ago my aunt Ann gave me a letter that their sister Emily had written to Inez in the 50's. It was a treasure since I never met Emily, she died before I was born. I treasure these letters, written by their own hands. They sat and put thought into each word. It was the only way to communicate. Phone calls were rare, letters and the written word was a way to keep family and friend close. Why did Inez keep that letter? She had it for over 50 years. Because it meant something to her, a sister that had went on before her.

A memory. So today I am sharing this autograph book I found at an estate sale a few weeks ago. I will continue to buy these items, when I can find them, because eventually they will be osculate.

Please check out my friends blog and her new piece of art.

She designs her art with recycled paper and gameboards. She always has a story to go along with her art. This is a new piece and I saw it first hand this afternoon. It is called Mama said... The biggest piece says mama said eat your peas. I love this one cause I was the only one sitting at the table hours later, because I never ate my peas. I spit them in my milk, and they made me drink my milk...YUCK! I hid them in my pocket, in my napkin, and in my closed fist. It never worked. And I still to this day don't like peas. So she is asking for your mama stories, your mama ism. Just check out her blog and leave your comment. And check her out on facebook too. I believe I can talk her into having a comment drawing for a free piece of art. So leave her some good ones and knock her off her

Just a few shots of my family from the womenless fashion show. Enjoy the view.

* Medical Update*

All is well, everyone went back to work and school.

Boy, that was a bad virus.

5 to 7 days of bathroom time.



Over the weekend I ask Dear Daughter where was

the jar with the hotel soap. I need to add to it.

She commented that I was a hoarder.

I don't think I am a hoarder. I put things in jars cause I like the look.

I like jars!

I started collecting buttons and they are usually found at estate sales in jars.

I love red and so alot of my jars have red lids.

The blue Bottles, remind me of the ocean.

I have even started adding jars into the pantry.

Okay, maybe keeping hotel soap is alittle strange. But what do you put in jars? Is it strange or odd. Post a comment and let us know.
