And I do too! 


  1. Loved all the creative projects especially the little knitted hens and birds. Those reading pillows would be a good way to encourage children to read. Fun to see your mom's potato 🥔 masher and spice containers. Mine is similar but had a red, chippy handle. How is your back? Hope it's better, Marie and sure hope you got that winfall you were expecting, you know, the one you worked so hard to earn. Hugs, Elaine

    1. I loved them ost as well Elaine. I have a soft spot for birds. Nothing works as well as those old potato mashers! My back is better but now it is my left shoulder. I felt it go out in bed last night. It is the one that was affected when I had my car accident 19 years ago. Its very sore today, but hopefully it will go off soon without me needing any cortizone shots. The windfall came through! Yay! Love and hugs, xoxo


Your comments mean the world to me, and while I may not be able to address each one individually, each one is important to me and each one counts. Thanks so much!
