Tree House Number 7

This Tree House was so much fun! Probably because winter is my favorite season. I love snow, lots of it! Everyone thinks I must ski or iceskate, but no, I just love hibernating in my house and watching it snow! My idea of a perfect day is to have a blizzard, dinner in the crockpot, a spotless house and a project to work on! Just gives me a peaceful, cozy feeling!

Celebrate 365 Magazine feature!!!!!

I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of Celebrate 365 and today the Summer and Fall issues arrived! What a beautiful magazine! It's published quarterly and is packed with oodles of Holiday goodies! I can't believe the talent in there! I am feeling very lucky to have been featured in the Summer and the Fall issues. I "met" Connie Porcher, the publisher of the magazine last year on Etsy. This past summer she contacted me to submit a couple of pictures and then again this fall. I am thrilled and I can't thank Connie enough for her consideration!

The Fall issue of Celebrate 365, included my Treehouse#5, a Witch, and a Lil Reaper.

The Summer issue of Celebrate 365 featured two of my 4th of July ornaments.

ohruthie=Old Ruthie! Happy 80th birthday Mom!

My Mom is one amazing woman! Yesterday my family celebrated her 80th birthday with a picnic in the park. She was sporting a little pink crown and looked cuter than a button. She still has her hair done twice a week and has her nails and toes done regularly. She and my Dad have been married for 60 years and they are a match made in heaven. They love to go to the casino's, party with the neighbors in their garage of all places, and spend time with their kids, grandkids and great grandkids. She has a shop on Etsy (ohruthie) packed with little knitted hats, crocheted blankets, and felted purses, but doesn't know how to get to it most of the time. When she sells something, we call her and she writes it all down in a little book. My daughter, Natalie and I run her shop for her. She makes us laugh and we are all devoted to her!

One of my Mom's latest creations, a little security blanket!

Summer Memories

This has been a crazy summer and I couldn't seem to find the time to blog. My grandkids were over everyday and night. This year we buried a Time Capsule in my yard, that the kids plan on digging up in 10 years.
Caden got stung by a bunch of bees and is now allergic and has to carry a pen around. He has to shoot it in his leg within five minutes of a bee sting. I will be so glad when we get some freezing weather and the bees will go away. I worry constantly about another bee sting. Just the week before he had to get stitches in his forhead for getting hit in the head with a surfboard.
Peyton and I went to a Wiggles concert and had a great time, she sang along and even danced in the aisle!.
My high school friend Vivian came to town from Arizona! I haven't seen her in at least five years, so it was great getting together with her and some of our other friends from school! This gives me the creeps, but we will be having our 40th class reunion in the year 2010! Yikes, where the heck did the time go?
All in all it was a great summer with some nice memories, but I am glad to see it over! I'm looking forward to fall, and a little peace and quiet!

The geese, although pretty to look at are a pain in the butt! They poop on everything. When we first moved here we fed them and boy, did we live to regret that!

The Fourth of July

I just realized in a week it will be the 4th of July already! We have a big old bash with all my kids and grandkids. We start at 10 a.m. with coffee and donuts, line our chairs up and watch the boat parade. The grandkids used to decorate the boat and join in the parade but they said it's boring! Then the kids swim and we eat! All day long we eat, until the fireworks start. My dogs will go crazy, so I'm not looking forward to that part! What do you have planned?

Pig Pincushions

I have been having very little time to blog now that summer is here! It's been sweltering hot in Michigan and the grand kids are here swimming day and night! I have found time for creating and worked on my Pig Pincushions this week! Today it may rain, so I may have a day without any interruptions!
