Enter Winter/WordPress Photo Challenge


Just after our last craft show today when leaving Windsor, Missouri (population 2858 respectively), we saw the entrance of winter in the form of thousands of Canadian geese. The transition to winter this year is definitely abrupt in Central Missouri.

Craft Shows in my Future

Took a break this week from the Victory photo challenge theme. Instead, focusing on work, family and more work.

Work related post can be seen on this link. But those of you who know me, know my work is also childs’ play. Lucky me! 🙂

With a craft show season in full swing, I’ll be seeing (hopefully) a restocking of my inventory so that I can have more to post about. Until then, hope to see my local folks in Cole Camp, Missouri this coming Saturday. Windsor, Missouri the following.

Going to be a cold one so wrap up!

Loch Lomond for Our Veterans

L is for Loved:
Honor Flight is making our Veterans feel “Loved” by escorting them via air on dedicated flights to visit memorials built to give tribute for the sacrifices they made.

One local photographer has documented in pictures his trip with one of these Honor Flights.
For a commentary of Kevin Walker’s experience as well as more pictures, see Here:

I wanted to present it to you in a slideshow with music. Hope you’ll thank a Vet today.

If you are a Veteran,

God Bless You!

Kickin’ Back/ WordPress Photo Challenge


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ornate.”Ornate WPC

My crochet spot.

I got to pick out this ‘ornate’ fabric when I purchased this recliner. The throw is for some chilly nights we’re about to have thrown our way.


My evenings aren’t’ complete without a pair of glitzy, over-the-top house slippers.

Ornate WPC2

Tonight’s choice was the ruby red.

Treat/WordPress Photo Challenge


In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Treat.”


Indulging in a little crochet this weekend,


A little prep for more crocheting,


Hemming some jeans (I’m short),


And being the recipient of this ‘treat’ from the hubby.


The Royal treat would be to see my Boys in Blue win the World Series.                   (That’s Herrera after striking out Murphy in the 8th inning)

Time will tell…….
