Here's the drawer full of powders and potions to make me presentable to the world.


And here's the newest addition to my family, Joni Margaret "Maggie" Parker Axen.  She wakes up looking this gorgeous every day without any makeup!

My inner child is more of an "outer" child.  Here's what I am working on now.  Note that the pattern says it "will jazz up a child's nursery."  However, I am making it for ME.





Happy corner-viewing!  And happy Summer!

I'll see you all in the Fall.

p.s. I got an A in my first class.  I guess there's still some hope for me, yet :-)

When you have 4 kittens, every night when you get home, you have to "re-place" your belongings.  (Yes. FOUR.  Mama Cat had three kittens that I adopted. She then proceeded to adopt a "stray" kitten of her own.  Yes, my can adopted a cat.... only in my house.)


Happy corner-viewing!

Last year, someone gave me an orchid.  Once the flower was gone, I neglected the poor thing.   I placed it on a windowsill and forgot about it - rarely even thinking to water it.  Several times I came close to dumping it in the composter... then last week I realized it had a flower!


Happy corner-viewing!

I am very close to my parents, but sadly we don't live close.  (It's a 14 hour drive.)  As we don't get to see each other often, we are forever sending boxes of things back and forth.  This week's parcel:




What is in the kitten mugs, you ask?  New panties.  Only my mother would send me mugs of panties :-)  (Of course, one of my packages to them included a baggy of dog hair to break in their new sofa as they don't have any pets.  My mom glued it to a card and made a dog hair panda bear  and returned it to me in my next package.  I guess the apple didn't fall far from the tree.)

I love getting the boxes.  I never know what "surprise" lurks inside, but I know that whatever it is will make me smile.

                                        Happy Summer and happy corner-viewing!

I am a compulsive collector.   One of my favorite collections is my china.  This is just a small sample of the collection.  Sadly, most is behind cabinet doors at the moment.
