A friend of mine... (Steve) gave me a wonderful gift today.... somewhat of a project kinda gift, but a gift none the less. Of course, project gifts are some of my favorites, so I wanted to be sure and send him a big blogger Thank You!! Be checking back here in a few weeks and I'll have the finished "project" ready for show. Thanks so much, not only for the window, but also for all your help today. It's great to live in a small community where everyone is always so ready to lend a helping hand. TTFN

Winter Landscape/Shades of Blue was the challenge offered by Created Byhand this week. So here it is... I've got the winter blues.These are my original photographs and, as you can see, Hazel has made her appearance while singing the blues. Think she's looking forward to some warmer weather, too.

Take a Word Challenge. Didn't know where I was going with it, just seemed to fall together. Art is funny like that. LOL! Anyway, it is so true, what is life if you don't open that door and soar... Get out there and fly!
Friday Foto Collage supplied the lovely floral background for this project. Makes we want to go out and dig in dirt. I altered the background and added some of the flowers from last years garden as well as one of our fountains and a little nursery rhyme to boot. Now I'm ready for spring!!!
- We live on the family farm in Mid-Missouri with our kids and animals. I love to make anything... and using repurposed items is the BEST!!! I like 'junk' as other people refer to it, but that 'junk' has a history and claims new life in many of my projects. Building primitive furniture, painting, writing, photography, stained glass... guess I'm what you'd call a jack of all trades... trying to master some. LOL! Anyway, if you have old barns or buildings with loads of junk you'd like to clear, give me a holler. I might just find myself in your neck of the woods!
