Dark Circles/ Sunday Sampler

Just playing around with an idea. I took this idea from Pinterest and went a different direction with it. And, These are officially and specifically for my Mother-in-law. She’ll be using them for her coffee mugs or maybe as candle mats.

On Etsy, I’ve added a set with a Tuscan theme.

Letting you in on a little inside info:

*They can serve as a mug rug for your morning cup of coffee or hot tea.
*Also use them for applique on your craft creations.
*Add a to a gift decoration.
*Combine them on your wall for a set of medallions wall art display.
*Sew them together for a larger trivet.

Embellishment ideas:

Pillows, pillow cases, hats, hand bags, t-shirts, sweaters, quilts and blankets, scrapbook pages, hand-made greeting cards and so much more. Create ear rings, Christmas ornaments, jewelry, hair clips or gift tags.

Thanks for stopping by for my Sunday Sampler.

Whether it’s the Weather

Circle

I promised a friend from Canada some pictures from our home here in ┬áMissouri. It has been in the news this past week with all the flooding. Searching out the circle we call “Sun” in this photo. No flood waters here.

No flooding here either. Just my dream home off in the distance. If only I had a few million dollars.

This is the city of our destination that particular day.The state capitol of Missouri, Jefferson City. (Pardon my unleveled hand)

A view from the vehicle window because it was too cold to get out and walk around while waiting for Ron at the DMV (department of motor vehicles). I kind of like this photo.

I just knew we’d see flooding on the Missouri River crossing the bridge, but nothing was unusual other than a bank full river. Good thing or this bridge crossing probably wouldn’t have been do-able. It heads right into the river bottoms. Not the best place to be during a flood.

To see many pictures of the flooding, I suggest Googling, “2015 Missouri flood pictures” Plenty to see. I am personally glad I didn’t see much.

My prayers and thoughts with all the victims affected by this tragic event.
