I am still here.

I have not been bloging for a while. I will get back to it after this week though. A lot has been going on here. With me taking care of my mother that is a full time job and now her aunt has passed away. We are going to the funeral in the morning. I take mother to therapy 2 times a week. And I have to stay with her all day and do everything for her. I don't mind. Just wanted to let everyone know what the deal is. I am very behind with everything. Just say a prayer for my family to God to help us be strong and have patience with each other.
I know with His help we will. Have a Blessed Day!

This INCREDIBLE picture was taken in 1918.It is 18,000 men preparing for war in a training camp at Camp Dodge , in Iowa . EIGHTEEN THOUSAND MEN!What a priceless gift from our grandfathers!

Just an explanation

I am sorry I haven't had anything on my blog lately. You see my mother had a stroke in September and came to live with my husband and I in October. She lost her balance and has to have help to walk and to put on clothes. So I have been really busy with her. I don't mind at all and I have to remind her that if I didn't love her I would not do all that I do for her. We were not blessed with any children so this is very different for us. I do get 2 days a week off from 1:00 - 5:00 in the afternoon and every other Saturday. That is a lot of help. There is always one person in the family who does it all. I guess that is me. I love my mother very much. Her birthday is April 11th, she will be 78 years young. We are planning a party for her. I know God will bless me for doing this. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and God Bless you all! Pam

Schnauzer Needlepoint Picture

I found this lovely Schnauzer needlepoint picture at an antique shop for 13.00. Looks just like my Gunthur. It is 17" X 16" .

I like collecting dog items mostly terriers and scotty dogs. The older and more unique the better.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

God Bless!

White Chest

This is just one piece of furniture I have for sale that I painted. I really like to paint furniture. When I start painting I tell my husband to move the cars, I will paint everything in sight. HA HA I get started and can't quit. I painted 2 chests one day. I use a brush most people use a sprayer. I have tried that but it is much easier for me to use a brush. I will try to get more pictures of other things I have for sale in my booth.

What happened?

Sorry everyone: I deleted a post and have a big space where it was. I don't know what to do about it. You just have to scroll down to see the rest of my pictures and comments. Sorry about that. Pam (:

Would like to have

I'm always looking for unusual chairs to recover. I think these are very neat. The lines are sleek. The material on the flowered chair reminds me of the 60's. Turquoise sofa is different in a fashionable way. {pictures:Veranda Magazine}

Now this is a Bedroom!

This is a great looking bedroom. Love how the dark color stands out against the white.
