amongst the big Cactus along the way. We went to Old Town Tucson and found all these shops filled with local art. Lunch at a local Mexican restaurant and more rain on the way home completed this rainy but good day.
Christa has been here two days already, and we are having so much fun!!!! Yesterday we went shopping at all the places that I have found my treaures at, and today we went to the Aji Spa, the hotel and the Casino at Wild Horse Pass. Not much $ was lost, and with the winnings, I bought a belt....so you can see that we didn't win big. They allow smoking in there, so we only stayed about 20 minutes. Tomorrow it will be the Flea Market.
Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.
This desk area was featured in this month County Home magazine, and we decided that it would be a great project for the desk in the guest room. Jim is going to build it and hopefully I will have a similar photo to post when it is all done....I will keep you posted on the progress.
Sunny here this week, but it has turned cool for down here at this time of the year, although I am not complaining. I watch the Canadian weather daily, brr, it is surely cold in some provinces.
Christa will be here on Tues, yeah!
I remind my self daily, this is my life, pay attention, make it sparkle!!!!
As you can see I had a fantastic day, and look at the treasures that I found to enhance my crafting.
Cindy, you will recognize my McCoy, this is a smaller version of the one that you gave me that started my McCoy collection...what a find!!!!! The other is a McCoy pitcher, and it is the first of its kind in my collection. I also got a bag of sample fabrics, Polo, Cowan & Tout, and look at these yummy looking ribbons, each roll was only 10 cents....and the vintage sewing patterns...who knows what they will be come. It was the best Treasure Hunting Day that I have had so far, and I got about 10 great balls of wool...more later.....
Thanks to Laurie and Shane for sending along their Christmas photo, so great to see them looking so happy. Christmas in Australia without snow must be like Christmas in Arizona, different but really good. They have just come back from having a holiday on the coast road in Australia, their own country, and it sounds like they had a wonderful time.
The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.
I took this photo out our car window and wished that I was in that balloon. It is definitely on my "Bucket List" of things to do in my lifetime.....planning underway.
Grande Prairie ,Alberta. They came down for a visit and bought a new home about 500 yards from us. We are so glad that they choose to live in our lovely "Solera" community. Evelyne and Richard came over to be with us as well. They had built a log home for Harvey and Annmarie in Nelson on the lake a couple of years ago. We had a great time helping them shop for furniture in the past 3 days. We look forward to seeing them back here in February.
A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
I took this course yesterday at Scrapbooks Etc., in Mesa last night and nearly finished up this 12 month calendar/journal. It was really interesting and thanks to Melissa who sat beside me and shared her tools that I needed to complete this. I still have a couple hours of work to finish off all the embellishments, and now I want to get my own Zutter, to bind small journals/books together.
Keep some souvenirs of your past, or how will you ever prove it wasn't all a dream?
