Happy Thanksgiving 2010

I'm in the midst of cooking the turkey, greens, and the garbanzo beans for a pumpkin hummus( the rest of dinner will be made later), and thinking of all the people I'm grateful for.
I'm grateful for family, friends, all of you and all the people who make me realize how blessed I am.

I hope your day leaves you with a full stomach, a full heart and a place to lay your head.

Happy Thanksgiving All!

Daughter surprise

My daughter got me into making bulldogs by ordering one for a coworker. Now she wants to order more and I mentioned I might make some as part of my jewelry line. It wasn't even designed yet and she wanted them. So here they are. Surprise!

Hunt Valley Show Review 2010

The show opened to an enthusiastic crowd and the atmosphere in the room was one of fun. Collectors were happily buying their favorites

My angel bear.

A large rabbit from artist Cindy McQuire of China Cupboard Bears that sold quickly! And you missed her wonderful circus elephant. It found a new home too.

Meg Jackson and hubby dressed in costume looking great.

The artists really did decorate their space and gave the the room a holiday air. More in a minute.

Veterans Day 2010

God bless all who have served,those that still serve and those that were injured or died in service to their country.

To be free is a precious thing, to have rights that we can exercise at will a costly thing. I thank all who fought and continue to fight so hard for them.

I thank my husband who served for 23 years in the Navy who every day of his service showed pride and honor in being a sailor.

I humbly thank all of you, my family, my friends, and my neighbors for your service.
