Sweet Saturday





It was so nice to stay home today and play with my blue and white dishes and get some cleaning done also. I also have enjoyed going shopping and visiting family but a gal needs her alone time sometimes?

                         

I really like the pattern on these cups and saucers, I picked them up in a resale shop . I can't resist blue and white china or transferware.




I just love all these books and enjoy looking through them over and over. I took several breaks today and looked through all these books



I'm going to join PINK Saturday

Me and Paula Deen Today

Hey ya 'all Paula Deen came to town, Columbia Missouri and I had to go out after work to Barnes and Noble bookstore  and stand in line almost 2 hours to get up to her





She was signing a picture of me in front of her 1st Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah Georgia back in 1998 when I first met her, not even knowing who she was. Really she wasn't popular yet.




Paula is promoting her newest cookbook. It was a fun event

Velvet Pumpkin Time

Well guess it is officially fall now so I will set out my sweet velvet pumpkins named Hot Skwash. Have you seen these at different decorating shops ? and here in Columbia they are at Kent's florist I know for sure.
I got mine at an estate sale for much less than originally priced. I love them and set them out year around in the studio .



Yesterday I had lunch at Wanna Be Victoria house , Gina that is. Her house was decorated so cute with all her fall items like leaves and pumpkins.Her house is the decorated like  an authentic old Victoria home, furniture dishes accessories which are beautiful. Bernideen was there and Karen from a small town close to Columbia, I don't think Karen has a blog? I need to ask.


Look at he the tiny pumpkin sitting beside the quarter. Some in the florist are covered in crystals for $300-400 each !!! ouch. Should I cut the name tags off the pumpkins? I like seeing the name myself?



LOVE THEM LOL

Well I'm going looking around some blogs which I really miss now that i'm a working gal again. course I always was a working gal just had a great job previously and could blog all day. Not now.

Enjoy today.

Oh and please say a prayer for a friend Nancy who lives on the island Vieques off  Puerto Rico . The hurricane hit hard and I haven't heard anything from her since last Tuesday at 2:29 when she sent pictures of the shelter she was going to, a high school gym on her island.

My Crops and Janis Joplin

Happy Sunday

I am glad to be home today.I have been clearing out my 2 flowers beds as the flowers and elephant ears start sagging to the ground. I cut down my 14 foot tall sunflowers.The biggest sunflower I grew this year is 14 inches across then 12 inches and 8 inches. They were so heavy the stems were almost bent completely over.The biggest one has my sunglasses on it for comparision size.


Here I am standing in front of my giant elephant ears which my grandsons loves because they are so big


I am hoping to get in the studio this afternoon and finish a project, one of many sitting around. I love being in the studio with my pretties and rhinestones etc.
                                                                   

Yesterday I went to Arrow Rock Missouri to the Lyceum Theatre to see the production of BeeHive , It was 6 girls singing songs from the 1960's . All that was there was a bunch of old people like me that was a teeager in the 1960's haha. It was lots fun and I sang all the songs and screamed and hollered haha right along with others. The men liked the Janis Joplin personation the best, they was yelling and clapping when the girl sang Cry. Then she sang Piece of My Heart
The singers were all excellent however she was most authentic.

Well better get busy, I miss joining in on the weekly parties. I'm still hanging in at my new job

White Plates

Hi

I am still plugging away at my 40 hour a week job at my ripe ole age. Making money for a new Mercedes or a 2nd house on an island LOL

I called a friend this morning and we got to talking dishes imagine that anyway we was talking about collecting odd white lunch and dinner plates.So I got to looking in cabinets and drawers for what white plates I still have.

My Favorite are these 8 inch lunch plates that remind me of the majolica green cabbage dishes

             


Then I found 12 of these small pie plates in a resale shop once for 50 cents apiece I just had to bring them home and have never had 12 people over for a piece of pie yet. They look as they never was used


      

This stack of  Ralph Lauren plates I found at Dillards on a clearance table in the pattern whipstitch

              


     


I had to show some lace today also since I was looking for a lace tablecloth in mt stack,I want to make a large oversize top out of. Pictured these are just lace collars I have on a mannequin in the studio . I'm in the mood to sew and since I am also off Monday for the holiday maybe I can get my sewing table at least cleaned off to get started on my project

                                   





Thanks for checking in one me

It's Time To Tell You

It's time I tell you all I am going back to work 40 hours a week !!!!so won't be blogging much. Not as much as I would like to anyway.

I got laid off from my part time job I have had the last 10 years. Job reduction at the University of Missouri, maybe you have seen this on the news, I think 412 people have lost their jobs here in Columbia Missouri so far.
I was lucky enough to get another position at University Hospital here in Columbia . I do my orientation tomorrow . Going from 24 hours a week to 40 hours a week will definitely cutting into my play time




At my previous job I could be on the the computer all day as long as I answered the phone when a call came in.I was very good at overlapping for you that are familiar with the work phrase


This will be hard working 5 days a week after not doing that since 2002 !!!!

I'll be checking in time to time, keep blogging
