Hurrah for Blogsy!

I'm back!

I added an app for my iPad called Blogsy.

Here we go!

Bunny is all ready for the 4th of July. She was begging to wear her costume and throwing a little tantrum, so I finally said yes!

The mantle dressed up for the season.

When I was a girl, I was a majorette. I had my own corp of girls that I taught for 13 years. I started the corp when I was 12 years old, with the help of my mother. I have taught 100's of girls to twirl the baton. When I saw the tiny baton at the thrift store, I had to get it!

The little red chair.

Just some fun. I painted the Uncle Sam picture in 1990 when the kids were little. It's been in a box forever. The little red box with pinwheels was super fun to make. At first I was going to throw it away, it was so ugly, but the little bluebird dressed it up just right! I just love this big house where I can pull out all my things.

I'm joining with Red Wednesday.
Hugs, Patti!
