When enlisting my husband and eldest daughter on my ‘hunt’ for doors, we had a perceptual experience together. We gazed upon this particular door in downtown Lawrence, Kansas and did a little window shopping as it kept us a little bit sheltered from the cold breeze.
And almost simultaneously, we seemed to all realize this door could be reversible if it wasn’t for the little light fixture. Look at the next pic and maybe you’ll see what we mean.
Maybe I should have done a little photo editing and removed it?
Would you have noticed it was the same door?? Yeah, probably. lol

Not everyone can say they have a sister named Barbie. I can and she definitely scored on Christmas Day with being the “Hostess Superlative” for our family get-together.
But the Sunday Sampler ‘Barbie Score’ has another twist.
This gem came in the mail from the hubster! Let me explain to you how rare it is lately to find Ken doll clothes patterns. Barbie rules the roost without a doubt. My dilemma is compounded in a daycare with 1 girl versus 7 boys. When it’s time for my Miss Emmi to play with the dolls, the boys are surprisingly eager to join along, provided there are male counterparts.And there are only so many clothes for those ‘Ken’ dolls. Mainly just shorts. And the boys are a bit indignant on this subject. So part of my time off for Christmas break is preparing to make some of these poor neglected AquaMen/Spidermen/Kenmen their own line of clothing. Wish me luck!
Happy New Year Everyone!!
I had a little motivation to start a baby blanket around the beginning of the month. It started as a color test, to see how I liked the wave pattern and the color choices.
January 5, 2016
Nearly 20 days later, we have one more round of colors to add and this one is ready for a special baby.
Weaving in those ends this evening.

Let the creativity Begin!!
When a cousin drops by for a visit to let you know he’s clear-coating his ’69 Ford Pick-up, you might be a bit ‘Optimistic’ about the future of our youth. Just take a look at this leather, custom-made, grill cover.
Even better still, here’s the whole truck.
Seth, you are one of the good ones!
Daddy had one just like it, 3-speed on the column, a heater that was equivalent to a blast furnace, and hauled a few livestock in the pick-up bed here and there. Only difference was it was painted Hunter green. My ‘Hunter’ cousins will appreciate that the most 🙂
Sorry no pictures of daddy’s truck….yet. Searching.
AlphabetAcross the street is a little garden shed built by “Larry”. I decided to use the double Z’s on the doors for my Photo Challenge. I couldn’t find a way (other than getting on my roof) to get this shot without the fence.
A bit about “Larry”…. Vietnam vet, had an injury while there and went many years before (a couple summers ago) he had a knee replacement. He built this shed for his wife’s gardening supplies after a heavy snow collapsed the old metal one. He keeps his yard immaculate and the same with the garden. Thanks to Larry, I had some compost from his farm delivered for free to start my new garden spot. We had a destroyed back yard from adding on to our house. Best year of cucumbers we’ve ever had.
Going down memory lane for this week’s photo challenge to a St.Louis Cardinals game in April of 2011. My youngest daughter’s class took a trip to see a game for some sort of incentive award. Can’t remember exactly, but apparently she was in the winner’s circle. Ron and I were able to tag along.
As a long-time fan of “Yadi”, we were snapping a few pics of him at bat.
Even a loyal Royals fan can appreciate the talent of Yadier Molina. He’s on my bucket list for autographs.
My highlight photo for this challenge is the levitating moment of the Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann.
Maybe McCann would autograph this one??
Cards won by the way……5 -3

I have had a little brainstorming goin on.
Currently I’m finishing up a blanket that I’ll let you see in a few days. Here’s the Yarn I’m using:
Pesto Homespun by Lion Brand
But I’m always thinking of “what’s next”?! And I like to do something different than everyone else.
I wanna be the trendsetter.
Anyhoo, I’ve thought up something that I “Need”…..
My current item I am replacing has seen Much better days.
In photos it will include using crochet for edgings:
And It will require some sewing:
As these are Pinterest photos and I know the websites they came from, I’m going to do the right thing and give credit where it’s due.
So thank you to:
Getting a running jump ahead to St. Patrick’s Day. The item here is a hand crocheted brooch with leaf pin ready to purchase.

everyone’s Irish on March 17th!!
I’m not talking crochet today.
And this won’t be a “Pretty” picture post.
We had some major fixing to do on our home. The foundation was broke.
Other words….separating, splitting up, falling apart, coming apart…..Plain ol’ Broke.
In fact once they started moving the foundation to its correct position, this piece just fell out.
More photos of the system used to straighten it up.
Did I mention this is Expensive?
The “bonus” was for us was they were able to remove the bushes that have been in front of our home since 1988. Yes we have been here that long. We are truly Katy Trail Natives.
