My Broken tooth was removed yesterday. It was a tough job for the dentist because he kept lowering my chair and tilting my head back. I almost expected him to put his knee on my chest and give it the old heave ho. He had to cut it up in little pieces in order to get it all out.
My upper jaw is sore today but all in all it wasn't so bad. I'm going to make an appointment after the first of the year to some more work done.
Have a great day

The color is called Navajo Sand and it is my new best most favorite color. I am lusting to repaint my livingroom but it is tiersome to remove all my things from the walls. Oh well.....I guess I'll do a little each day and probably repaint after Christmas.
Believe it or not.....when talking with Dara yesterday, Navajo Sand is the very same color she chose to repaint her kitchen and livingroom. Great minds think alike!!!
Have a great Day.....I'm off to wrap presents

I traded tables with Dara this Thanksgiving. After all....she has the bigger family and since hers is the house we celebrate Holidays at, I thought she could make better use of my larger table and chairs.
I am looking forward to refinishing the smaller set. But for now, one of my vintage tablecloths will do.
I'll pick up the fourth chair when I go up to San Antonio for Christmas.
Have a great day!

I thought I would try and make an old fashioned Victorian spun cotton Christmas ornament. You make a human stick figure out of pipe cleaners...then begin wrapping mummy like with cotton batting strips. The clothing is added later as well as the fancy trim. I think my first try turned out pretty good.
Have a great day

Hayley and I made this little blue bird ornament when I went to visit for Thanksgiving. It's very easy. All you need are a felted wool or cashmere sweater..a sharp pair of sissors..fancy trim...a small twig...fabric glue..some buttons or beads for the eyes ..cotton balls for the stuffing and clips to hold the bird closed untill it drys and a small strip of lace or ribbon to tie around the birds neck.
Using the templace cut out the back and front of the bird as well as two wings. Put glue around all the edges of the birds body..remember to glue trim hanger in middle of body and twig on bottom. Put the two pieces together holding them with clips untill dry ( we used clothespins). Add the wings and the beads for eyes. When all is dry add a small snip of lace or ribbon around the neck.......Sweet and very simple.
Have a wonderful day
