65" tall

***Info added Aug 29***

I used 3/8" ply wood for my Witches. I bought it at Home Depot for $9.98 for 4' by 8' sheet. I had them cut the sheet into 2 -65" pieces and still had wood left over for the cats I'll make. In the past I've only ever worked with a ban saw for cutting out my wood pieces.. My Witches are to large for that. My 15 year old neighbor (with the help of his Grandfather) cut out one Witch his Grandfather cut out the other. They used a jig saw. The Grandfather said my Witches were not hard to cut out.. I'd love to buy a jig saw (someday) and try cutting out this large stuff..

I asked Bella how her first day of Middle school went yesterday.
she said "Grammy it was just awesome!"
... how wonderful ...
Oh my gosh.. how I LOVE this photo!
They are the best kids..
we are so blessed to have these precious kids in our lives..
I know I've said that before LOL...

~Vintage 40s tablecloth banner~

While treasure hunting at a flea market
I found a wonderful vintage 40s tablecloth
for only $1.00!
It had a few small holes and some light stains..
so I cut it up and made this fun cloth banner.
What do you think?
Any ideas as to where I should put it?
Maybe outside?
*** Thanks for stopping by my blog***
Have a happy day :-}

~Bella starts Middle school~

Bella with best friend
Such sweet girls!
My Granddaughter starts public Middle school today.
I'm disappointed that Bella will no longer be
attending a private Catholic school.
She's made the Volleyball team at her new school..
what a thrill! see Bella suffers from
Polyarticular Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis
and sports can be a struggle.
I called Bella at 6:30am to wish her the best today..
she was so excited.
My thoughts and prayers are with Bella today & everyday.
Good luck to all who are starting back to school.. have a fun year!

~just call me a copy cat!~

above photo taken last year on a sunny day..
On my down time
I love to sit & read at this table in my side yard.

dark cloudy morning in Ohio
like my clock?

studio clock
Well just call me a copy cat!
I was visiting Jackie at
and loved her idea about her outside clock..
so I plucked the clock off my studio room wall
ran outside clock, hammer, nail, (and camera) in hand
and added my studio clock to my fence..
now the only problem is
when I look up to check the time here in my studio theres no clock.
I could just check time on my computer but that's to easy.
now I'm off to find a clock to put up where the old one was..
Gee am I doing this a bit back word?
Oh well that's just me.. LOL..
have a beautiful day!
