We never know what our days will be comprised of.   We all hope for the good ....but still you never know  when there will be a curve thrown in.   This morning was one of those curvy days.   The store and our "nest" is located at a well traveled intersection.  Two cars met in an unfortunate moment and both of  the vehicles ended up  hitting two parts of our building.  Nothing  to major for us....but instances like this always bring to mind a lot of  "what ifs".  What if Tim and Lily came in from outside 2 mins later ....they would have been hit.   What if????   Anyway, most importantly I hope the one man is OK. He did not respond to Tim's calls to him.  The other driver is young and I am sure will be hurting in the next few days.  I guess what I want to say is remember to slow down, be aware of your surroundings
What's on the work table!
Elephants  (waiting for the material to come)
Day of the Dead Biker--as cute as a biker can get!
Goth Baby---My design!
Mini Lady Dragonfly---Just like the one I made at the Holidays!
Stay tuned!

Matchbook Comes Back Home

Matchbook from 1939 or 1940
EBay is such a cool thing!  Last week I found this listing and I knew I had to buy needed to come back home.   I must admit I was stumped for 10 seconds on who J M Farley was who had a store in Chardon.  Then I knew JULIA M. FARLEY..... my grandmother.  Welcome back little matchbook!

J. M. Farley  @1900

Sheep, Rabbits, and Mice

Extreme Primitive Sheep Pull Toy


Whigleigh Doodle Dandy, Whighleigh's Carrots, Lord Whighleigh
 I just realized that I have not posted any of my "doings" since before Christmas.   I am battling the flu today. I will not be going into details about the patterns I used.   I must say though,  the "Whighleighs" have stolen my heart.
