Bringing in a little Fall


I brought in a little bit of Fall today. I woke up this morning to fog and then rain, rather dreary

then as the day went on in cleared up to a beautiful day, I feel so much better when the sun comes out! Well, on to #3: I do all my crafts standing up. My favorite place is an old wooden ironing board. I'm only 5'1" and the ironing board is just the right height. Now, when I say crafts, here is a few things I have done on this ironing board...scrapbooking, card making, stamping,woodcarving, stained glass, tole painting, flower arranging, beading, photo taking, bow making...and my latest passion...putting my little birdies together!! When I am able to get a few birds ahead, I line up tea cups and spoons and match the size and color so I get the perfect match. Another note on the "name" story...my brothers name was Mickey Fred or Mick Fred- as he got older...I never heard anyone ever call him by his first name...he married a Vickie or Vick...so...Mick and Vick Fred, I guess they were made for each other. LOL. Oh! one more thing, I finally mixed up an order...I feel soooo bad. I need better organization in my life! Well, I've got a couple of people to contact...get things straightend out!!
