It's the big forty-five today.  Don't know if I'm getting crazier or smarter or just older.  Gonna have a margarita at lunch & think about it.  I am happy, at least I know that.  Enjoy the video above!

Folks from the Detroit area might remember this Faygo commercial from the '70's, I sure do!  Have a great weekend - hope you are enjoying your summer - do you have a favorite childhood memory of summer?  One of my many is sitting under the ancient willow tree in the front yard eating Popsicles.  Simple Joy!


PS: Now go get yourself a bottle of Faygo Redpop or Root Beer and some cheap vanilla ice cream and make some floats with someone you ♥!

Lilacs & Rock

Growing up and even now during this time of year you could have and might still find me with my face planted in a lilac bush, inhaling deeply.  

There was a lilac planted outside of my bedroom window growing up and so I planted the one above outside of my daughter's window.  The butterflies and hummingbirds and fuzzy bumble's love it....they don't seem to mind me standing right there with them reaping the bounty.  I love lilac bouquet's dripping out of an old mason jar or white pitcher.  The blooms fade too fast, sure wish they lasted all year long!

This is "Rock".  He is an adult pebble.  Still have to stitch his eyelids on.  (He prefers to to wear a mustache and enjoys easy-listening music.)

Have a few more monsters & odd-folk waiting to be stitched up in my laboratory sewing room: 

◘  "LAVArne", who jumps from couch to chair to avoid the lava on the living room floor;

◘  "Victoria" the attic bunny, who just enjoys jumping on the furniture when no one is home (which is always because she lives in an old abandoned house);

◘  The Fuzzy Glove Monster (when one of the socks disappears, do we ever suspect that the Glove did it?);

◘  and "Steve", the groovy lava-blob (he likes to collect old lava lamps and listens to music that sounds like rainbows).

Still loving my primitives too - please don't leave me!  Just needed a little creative break to exercise some monsters...get them out of my head!

Have a blessed week♥♥♥
