Here are some pics of the house where you can get an idea of how many lights we put up and how much work we put into it. I still enjoy it and wish i could just leave it up all year but the weather would destroy it all. I do have plenty of storage space though and I enjoy putting it all away and organizing it almost as much as putting it all up Here are the ornaments I have been making, or rather a sample of them. I started real late but sold almost all I made. I have plans to make them all year and have some great ideas for making them with pics like the Coke ones, dogs, horses, letters, etc. Maybe can get enough made to sell at a craft show or two as well.

This is one of the little bedspreads I made to sell on eBay. It is supposed to look like a vintage chenille spread with the teeny adorable pompom fringe around the bottom.
This one is a silk fabric with silk ribbon embroidery design in the middle. I love this one and plan to make another with red silk ribbon embroidery on it.
This is a little tree I made to sell but if it doesn't sell I will be more than happy to keep it to use in my own dollhouse.
I have been getting caught up on lots of things. Forgot to take a picture of the little pink tree skirt I finally finished. Well I say finished. I bought trim to go around the edge but didn't get quite enough so will have to finish that later. Also got 12 quilts ready to be sent off to the quilter and several table runners ready to finish myself. Already finished one of those. Will have to take some more pics tommorow. Off to bed for me, it's after 5 AM!

Yes, the dollhouse is upside down. I decided it was easier to wallpaper the ceilings with it upside down, and did some of the walls too! Our grandson, who we call Peanut, is growing like a weed. He is 5 months old now and laughing and starting to grab his toys and bottle. Just too cute for words! Here is a pic from 4months.
Here are a few more pics of some cute happenings around our place. My baby Maggie is growing and is the subject of all kinds of cute pics. She loves Lucky, my daughter's cat and we caught a pic of them sleeping together. She also loves to sleep in Dad's lap. The next pic is of our nightly visitor to the outside cat's food bowl. The last pic is of my sunflowers, that tall one is 9' 6" tall.
A Little About Me
- Hi and Welcome! I am 50 years old, married with 2 girls Andrea and Crystal, and 3 grandchildren. A girl, Jesi who is 13 that we are raising and a boy, Christian, who is 6 and, lives with Mom. Andrew James or Peanut is 6months old and brother to Jesi. We live in a house built in 1897 that is not in the best of shape but we are working on it and we love it. It is a 2 story colonial style with big columns and a big wrap around front porch. We also have 6 cats, of which only part of are allowed in the house, and 5 dogs. A Momma dog and 4 puppies. She had 9, we gave one away, then they all came down with parvo. I lost 4 but was able to save 4. A heartrending experience but was just glad to be able to save any. No help from the vet as they want so much money but found some homeopathic remedies that actually worked. I also have a 7 month old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel that is my baby. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps under the covers with me, and is just the cutest thing ever.
