Well, I have better photos of Thanksgiving... but, of course, I can't find them now that I need them. Having said that, our family holiday tradition is to spend Thanksgiving together at my parents' house. This year will be different, however.  Mom had a quadruple bypass at the end of August.  (She is doing amazingly well.)  So, my oldest niece, Lauren, will be hosting this year.  Here are some previous Thanksgivings:

1994, Tuscaloosa, AL


1996, Tuscaloosa, AL



2010, Monterey, TN - Mom with her great grandson, Zalyn; my oldest sister, Sandy, and oldest niece, Lauren, doing the dishes after the feast; my great-niece, McKayla, wearing more food than she's eating.





Happy Corner-viewing!

I like to have fun with my hair color, but as I work in a conservative environment, I can't go too crazy.  However, some days my color is "stranger" than others.  In my quest to find cruelty-free products, I've discovered henna... and a very loud orange!



Happy corner-viewing!

I love the "spooky" look of the Spanish moss on the oak trees at night.




And, of course, I have to add pet photo!  So, here is Pippa whose dark coat covers a lightness of spirit.

The roommate has moved out and I have my craft room back... including one empty closet.  Oh, the possibilities!


And on an unrelated, but wonderful topic, look what else I have...




My very own Susanna 'Susi-Art' Redeker!  Thank you, Susi, I love it!

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 :-)
