Welcome Will!

I have been busy the past few weeks with my daughter awaiting the birth of my grandson. He was late but worth the wait. Will finally made his appearance yesterday and weighed in at 7lbs 12oz, and 20" long. He has red hair. I got to hold him for a while yesterday and I am over the moon. Mother and son are doing well.

Mad Hatter

Wow, can't believe it is 3 weeks since my last post. Life has not been boring but I guess I did not have anything worth posting about.

I didn't get an invitation to the Royal Wedding or a ticket to the Kentucky Derby, but that did not stop me from having some fun. I love hats. Wish there were more places and more occasions to wear them. I  use to wear them several times a year but that was eons ago it seems. I rummaged through my old stash of hats and came up with a summery one that for some reason was pretty plain. I think it once had some netting around it but that is long gone. It is a lovely peach color and I thought it would be perfect for the season. Did you know that peach is not in style this year? No ribbon, no tulle, and only 1 flower even though I went to several different stores. No matter. I was never a slave to fashion. I am also not into the outrageous and my hat is pretty low key in comparison to some of the recent news worthy headpieces. I am happy with the results.

Counting down the days till my new grandson makes an entry into this world!

Wish me luck... I finished a piece I am entering into Houston.. Just need to put the paperwork in the mail. This will be a first time entry for me.
