Old is New Again

A few years ago I started crocheting scarves using the Sashay yarn. These are mainly worn for fashion rather than function. I sold them locally for the most part, in Craft Shows, on Facebook Buy Sell Trade sites, shipping some across the country. As Sales eventually started to diminish, I made the decision to bag the remaining scarves and set them aside for another time. I moved on to designing and creating costume jewelry using beads and pendants. I added them with my scarves in local Craft Shows. That venture proved a successful one, again until Sales eventually diminished. I bagged all of the remaining pieces and placed aside for another time. My next crafty adventure became wreath

Scrap to Treasure

Are you one of those who takes pictures at Holidays and special occasions? My dear sweet Mom, God bless her soul, was a true shutterbug, through and through. She always had her camera with her.

Turkey or Ham?

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is in a few days? Where has this year gone? This time of the year is very special to me. I have such fond memories of my extended family getting together for Holidays and Birthdays. Cousins got to grow up being very close, always gathering at my Parents home. My dear Mother treasured nothing more than having her family around her. Family meant the world to her. Nothing would bring an ear to ear smile to her face quicker than family wrapped in her arms.

My parents have been go
