I'm Still Here ...............................


Yes .... I am still here after
all these years. 


I just find it so hard to 
do all of the things I 
like to do with only half
of the energy that I used to have. 

I have been running my own shop
" Trinkets & Treasures "
for 6 years now. 
I take care of my home, my husband, and
two little dogs.


I'm addicted to Facebook which is
where everyone seems to be these days....
And I'm trying to run an 
Art Group which takes more time than I have.


I'm constantly crafting , knitting , 
treasure hunting,
and reading ........

I've got a neglected garden that 
I'm trying to bring back to
it's glory........


But I am still HERE....
just little bits of me. 

And I'm still popping in on all of
your Blogs to see what all of you are doing .


I'll be back !

More Ribbon Doll Witches !



I've been having fun making 
these ladies and they've
already begun to sell in my shop .



The one on the left has sold already.
The one on the right still 
available. 
I will ship if you are interested .
( The price is 20.00 with 3.00 shipping )





They've all taken on personalities
of their own . 

They measure just under 3 feet long
from the point of her hat to the bottom
of her skirt. 
They look adorable with their 
skirt blowing ever so 
slightly in the breeze of a fan .

My Baby Girl Zoe Modeling My Hand Knit Doggie Sweaters


I couldn't ask for a better model  &
I truly think she enjoys modeling and
having her picture taken .


My sweaters are thick & warm &
cuddly . They will keep your dog 
toasty in the cooler months to come.


This fluffy sweater in shades of pink &
rose is actually way to big for my
Zoe and will fit a dog 12-18 lbs.


This lavender sweater fits Zoe but has room 
to spare and would fit a dog weighing up to 
12 lbs.

They are both available in my
Etsy shop .

cozy stocking hat and it's

strands of yarn to make 
this hat extra thick , cozy,
and toasty warm for this winter, 
It's 40" long !

My Witch Ribbon Doll


I know it's a little early 
for Halloween Witches &
things but I was totally
inspired by one of my friends
in a FB art group I 
belong to.


This was fun and so easy & I
know I'll be making a few more 
to sell at my little shop 
" Trinkets & Treasures ".

Yellow Plums 
Golden Plums 
Til a week ago I had never even
heard of them . 
I was lucky enough to be given
two heaping bowls full
of fresh picked plums & 
right away I knew I was going 
to make some jam !


I quickly started looking up recipes
for yellow plum jam and finally 
decided to use the one that sounded
best to me and also was flavored
with vanilla and cinnamon . 


My Jam came out perfect &
delicious! 
With all of the plums I was given 
I was able to make quite a few
pint size jars that I will now
store away for future gift giving 
and keep a couple for myself 
of course .


Have you been admiring my plants in the background ?


These clover plants are one of my new loves .

I bought a couple of these plants for a dollar 
a piece at a thrift store and I love them . 
I especially love the deep dark reddish purple 
ones with delicate white flowers ,  
they seem like they are constantly 
in bloom .
