So, Ms. Robin moved in and I am so amazed that they can build these things and they are so wonderfully round!

Then I had to climb up on a ladder because I just needed to know if anything was in it...

And, there is!!!

Today we went to the Cherokee Triangle Art show. It is always the weekend before Derby. Fortunately, everything has dried out enough to be comfortable. But, tomorrow is another story...more storms a-commin'

It started out with a little parade. It's for the kids, really...they love to dress up too.

This was did get crowded
If you know me well, you know that I have an eclectic set of dishes. We get a place setting from various artists when we find them. I love setting the table with different patterns and colors for each person. And, of course, you do develop favorites for one reason or another. Today, we picked this pattern. The artist didn't have dining dishes in stock but he's going to make them for us with this pattern. We normally get a dinner plate, salad plate, and a bowl. This one pictured is actually a pasta/salad bowl. Really looking forward to this one!

And, of course, I found a little something for myself. I had the chain at home but saw this neat pendant! It is made from china dishes...the lady said they were called "alphabet dishes".
As always, thanks for stopping by!

Look what I found on our front porch last evening! Some little birdie was quite busy during the day. So sorry...I took a broom and swept it all away. I could just hear the blasted bird yelling at me, "Man! I worked all day on that! No I'm gonna have to start all over again!"

So, when I came home from work today, I looked out front and this is what I saw... Well, if that little bird didn't start all over again! I think no matter how many times I sweep this away, it will be built all over again. So, I'm gonna leave it...for now.

Now, I love birds as much as the next avid bird watcher but, what a mess!!

I just love doing challenges. It's not winning or's the challenge itself; the departure from, perhaps, my usual. Great prompts or material challenges are so inviting!!

HERE WITH YOU is my response for April's #169 Scrapping the Music challenge - "Hanging by a Moment" by Lifehouse.

The journaling reads: "What is it about photos that you shy away from them so much? Did I have to coax you to sit for this one? One of the girls took this one at Red River Gorge 10/10."

Maybe it's because I take SO many pictures or he just doesn't feel confident in pics...don't know, maybe both. Hmmm....

These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things challenge for the first part of April is to scrap about your favorite scrapping tool. I chose my Slice Elite. How ironic is it that just as I sat down to add all of my envisioned "Sliced" embellishments, it goes down. So, I called Making Memories and explained the problem. "Sounds like an internal problem", she said, "you'll have to send it in so we can check it out". Gahhhhhhhhhh! So, no Slice created embellishments on my Slice layout!
As always, thanks for stopping by!
