A new hairdo, a new scrapbook page completed. Lots of vintage things used here, page from a dictionary, old postcard, buttons, and of course, some bling. The flower on the lower right hand side is a flower punch used on a Martha Stewart paint chip, with an eyelet and a bobby pin. I made alot of these last year for the Brownie group as little gifts. The girls loved making them for themselves and giving them away.
Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. ~Charles R. Swindol
It will be 24 degrees here today, sunny and warm, hopefully it will be that way all weekend. But as usual on this long weekend, rain is in the forcast for Monday.
Jeremy and Julie are having a great time in Orlando although he was up at 4:00am with one of his kidlets not feeling well. They are off to the Animal Kingdom today.

In the spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of four and twenty hours. ~Mark Twain
This has been so much fun, keeping up this page even though we are not travelling at the moment. I have been using some of the things I have been collecting over the years on my scrapbook pages like buttons, pages from old books and dictionaries and vintage ric rack.
Jeremy and Julie made it safely to Orlando with their group of 70+ kids and adults, and he has posted his photos, and it looks like fun. http://sites.sd43.bc.ca/secondary/riverside/jbrown/default.aspx
Off to work I go for the next 3 days, and I know it will be "smoking" busy as everyone will want to be in the Okanagan for the May long weekend...
It is a 2 quote kinda day:
We all have had big changes in our lives that are more or less second chances. ~Harrison Ford
The hardest thing to learn in life is which bridge to cross and which to burn. ~David Russell
Jim got this golf cart when he retired 2 1/2 years ago, and it has gotten many upgrades. Mag wheels, checker plate trim, exhaust, and he is the envy on our golf course. It provides allot of fun and transportation for us around our development. Pebbles and Cookie love it, as they think of it as their convertible.
Golf is not just an exercise; it's an adventure, a romance... a Shakespeare play in which disaster and comedy are intertwined. ~Harold Segall
To all of you, Happy Mother's Day. For the ones of us that are Mom's, Grandmom's, aunts, sisters and to the ones that have lost their Mom's, loving wishes, and I hope you have a happy day.
Excess on occasion is exhilirating. It prevents moderation from acquiring the deadening effect of a habit. ~W. Somerset Maugham, The Summing Up, 1938
