The photo is my son and myself. Now days you can get a photo made to look old like this one. This photo was taken when this was the new look.

Harry S Truman was president when I was born and world war II had ended. I grew up in a time when lunch was put in a brown paper bag and a sandwich was wrapped with wax paper. There was no such thing as pantyhose, we wore stockings that attached to the rubbery clippy things that attached to the girdle.

Behind the scenes part two

December 18, 2015

These are just random pictures from around the house...

I made a crochet hook bag...

This is it rolled closed..

I watched a gecko battle take place, they actually had a fight and chomped on each other...

Another chair I designed and painted. It would have not been made without the help of my husband and his skilled wood work.

The Horton Mill Bridge...

A winter ice storm....

It was very pretty and also very dangerous....

Our Johnson Bros dinnerware...

The babies and grandbabies in the storm closet due to a severe weather alert.

Our Shabby Cabby Camper...

The girls love hanging out in the Shabby Cabby...

My husbands treadle saw...

Pinching off the lower tomato leaves so I can plant the tomato deep in the dirt..

I made a lunch bag...

The girls bunk beds...

The spring lettuce, carrot garden...

The invasion of the pecan worms...

The worms were everywhere...

A truck crashed in front of our house and took out the power pole and lines and pulled lines from our houses...

It took a good part of the day to restore power.. The driver kept going until about 5 miles down the road his truck finally quit running. He had taken drugs...

A pie crust...

Cauliflower in the small backyard garden..

A homemade yellow cake with boiled chocolate frosting...

A bag to hold car keys and small items...

A baby wren...

World War two ration stamps...

Another visitor at the bird bath..

A solar light...

Katherine found the pillow topper when I had dropped it off in the living room on the way to the outside clothesline to let it sun....

Homemade Lemonade.  

I made a purse...

And I made a rug....

Just hanging out in their jamies....

I made a bonnet...

A sun hat...

And a few other hats for a friend with breast cancer...

Sugar eating a carrot top...

This is a faded picture that no one wanted after a family member died...

So I took it home and repainted it...

I hope you have enjoyed the behind the scene photos....

Sometimes pictures say a thousand words...

Grandma Donna.....
