Welcome to my blog this week for GROW YOUR BLOG. I participated last year and loved it so I am back again.... If you have a blog and haven't done this be sure to consider it for next year. You can usually sign up in November or December at Vicki's Blog.
If you read back on some of my blog posts you will discover I participate "almost" weekly in a blog party called Tea Cup Tuesday. Those of us who love tea and tea cups share something every week. There are folks from all over the world participating. You will occasionally find recipes there too.
Here is an example of a picture from a post I did awhile back.
I used to make doll houses and love miniatures.... here is a little set I used as part of Tea Cup Tuesday one week.
I am supposed to be retired now.... (I worked at a tv station in Maine for many years) But opened my antique shop and have been busy every since. No time to retire just yet.
I like to work with wool and felt and here is a little pillow I made using wool felt and buttons from my "button" box.
This next quilt is actually a table topper to use at Christmas time.
And this is a Winter Wall hanging I started in 2013 and finally finished in 2014 just in time for the holidays.
This is a journal I made in a class called Journal Journey. I also belong to a couple of groups on Facebook doing journals. If you are feeling the urge to learn to journal there are lots of on line opportunities... some free... some with a modest cost. Some a good bit more because they offer supplies and extensive help.
So you see my interests are varied and quite eclectic............... I stay busy.................
Because we live in a semi rural area we are often visited by wildlife of one type or another, deer, raccoons, and even an occasional bear. I like to show pictures of some of the visitors.
Most recently I took this picture of some deer that had come by at dusk. I took a picture with my flash and because I was on the porch it didn't light up as well as if I had been closer. However I liked the way it turned out. As I stood on the edge of my porch the mama deer went very still and looked right at me. The young ones kept right on eating.... You can tell all this by how the flash illuminated their eyes!
That is a general overview of my blog. I hope you find something you can enjoy. And that you will become a follower. I love it when you sign my guest book too.
If you have any specific comments you can email me directly
Just put Grow Your Blog in the subject so I won't miss it.
I hope you will come back and visit me in the near future!!!
