Shopping trip to an Arizona garden.

  A few days ago we had to get some food supplies, We were running low on fruits and veggies. I don’t know about you but going out in this city now gives me the creepy crawlies. This months shopping trip I am sharing with you all involves a pandemic. I guess this would be…

 Thrift store treasures…a mysterious cat.

A few weeks ago my husband came into the living room where I was watching some lifetime movie from long ago and had a cat in his hands and asked me a question… “Hey, where did you get this cat?” I looked over at the cat and answered back “ Up in one of those…

  Thrift store treasures- three tiny little mice

  Not a whole lot to this one. Wish I could remember the names of this treasure I found but this one comes from the past. It is a fun story though and I thought it would be one you  all would enjoy. But first let me explain that these mice I bought were not…

 Living in a magazine.

It has been almost a century since that magazine I looked through was first published. The pages are crumbling and tearing easily now. I did not think ahead to the future when I first touched that old magazine in the rock house. I would have never imagined that some day I would be sharing it with…

DIY’s from the 1920’s…rock house magazine part 5

This was the cool part when I looked through this magazine, the fact that even back in the 1920’s they did crafts. More so in fact, since there were no other distractions like we have today. Also things were harder to come by so you had to either figure out how to make something yourself or…
