Conservatory of Sorts/ ThursdayDoors

My math equation for the week…..

Another busy week + Trying to Do it All at My Age = easy share for Thursday Doors.

We were headed this way, towards the Grand Stand at the 2017 Missouri State Fair.

I look forward to taking some ‘after’ pics for comparison soon.

But this item caught my eye. We’ve got some lumber and stuff and want to build ourselves a hothouse. This one gives us some ideas….

The door is pretty much not what I’d pick personally. I’ve been exposed to so many options since joining the Door patriots here. Thanks everyone, by the way.

The lighting prevented me from getting a good focus but you can see the sizes that are possible as well as the name of the company should you really be interested in what they offer. I’m a do-it-yourselfer when possible.

Mother’s Nature Scene/Sunday Sampler


Windsor Toy And Craft Show December 2013

Yesterday my eldest, Rachel and I stopped by my mother’s on our way home. We wanted to share the doctor’s latest plan for Rachel after her trip to the ER a couple weeks ago. (More on that later.) Plus it’s always nicer to speak to your mom in person. 🙂 Not to mention, she’s stranded at home in Green Ridge (micro mini small town USA) due to her truck being repaired. Has to be a boring January weekend.

Towards the end of our visit she directed us to her kitchen where she’d put her latest project. She told us she’d recently been attending a Women’s Club in town. My mother is a socialite at heart! She presented her ‘attempt’ as she put it at painting.

She explained they used masking tape and she decided to place hers evenly. This is her result. We told her she needed to frame it. It’s pretty good for her first attempt wouldn’t you say? Choosing her as my Sunday Sampler this week to proclaim….imagesKO29ASWM
