~girls night at New Moon~

Saw the New Moon movie last night
it was OK...I had lots of fun!
we had treat bags.. vampire blood
my Granddaughter Isabella aka "Bella" was ready to go
and enjoyed every second!
I'm tired this morning only 3 hours of sleep last night.
It was girls night out at the movies
we went to see the midnight showing of New Moon
got there around 9:30pm seated right away
and sat in on all the fun.. yes I am a Twilight fan
I truly have enjoyed the books.
For me it was more then just seeing the movie
it was the anticipation of the movie
it was sharing the fun with my granddaughter Isabella
Just sitting next to a 13 year old who LOVES
everything about Twilight was such a blast!
Oh what fun being
with hundreds of VERY excited Twilight fans..
both young and old like me LOL.
7 sold out midnight movies in our small town of 36,000!
I say yes see the movie but read the book first..
Eclipse comes out June 30, 2009..
can't wait :-}

~My Winter White~

I covered the small square frame above
using tiny old white mother of pearl buttons
some of my white Madonnas

Old white pillows
had these many years..

I made these chair covers and curtains
from dust ruffles I found new for $2.99

I used a vintage popcorn chenille bedspread
for my chair..
I'd like to make a white damask slipcover someday
My sister made this candle for me
using some of my old white buttons

made this Annie doll using
an antique cutter quilt for her dress
and old ticking for her arms & legs

I gave a copy of the photo below to my friend Lolly
her Mother who at the time was in her
70s hand drew
this gorgeous piece
my sister had it framed
and it now hangs in my living room.
I'm amazed at the talent this lovely lady had!
I took this photo of my Granddaughter
Isabella on March 22, 1998
at the time she was watching Barney on TV LOL..
the dress Bella has on belonged to
my Brother-in-laws Grandmother made in 1894
the rocking chair dated 1868
it belonged to my Grandmother
~My Winter White~
is very easy to live with
the fabrics are cotton
just toss in washer/dryer when they need cleaned
I have 9 & a 13 year old grandchildren
and we use this room all the time!

~Can't wait to see New Moon~

I couldn't sleep again..
so I got up about 3:00am
went to my computer
check emails, blogs, and Facebook
family's on Facebook
great way to see what they are up to
if I miss a day of talking with them..
well I see on Facebook that
Daughter #1 got tickets for 6 of us
to see the midnight showing of New Moon..
~what a delightful surprise~
can't wait to thank her!
Daughter #2 tried to get tickets for the first showing
but they were sold out days ago
she's been checking to see if they would open up another showing
looks like they did.
we 2 Daughters, Granddaughter Bella, Me, & 2 friends
are going to see this much anticipated movie at midnight
We can't wait!
I'm reading the book again.. LOL..
