The Love of Being a Grandmother!

Happy Hump Day everyone.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas Day....I know I did. Yes, still no crafting and or painting or making jewelry....still in Jacksonville Florida enjoying my new grandson, Alan...or Bean, as I call him.

I was watching my daughter today as she still continues to recuperate from her c section and adjust to being a Mother. I so remember the day I brought her home from the hospital almost 34 years, how time flies! She is going to be an awesome mom....and her husband is doing great!  And, me, well, I'm in love again!. I sat this morning feeding, burping, and holding Alan, and my heart just melts every time. I swat there looking at him thinking that my blood, my fathers blood, my ancestors blood flows in his veins....and we are such a proud family. The love  I have for this little boy whose mother is my oldest and first child...well, it is amazing.

So, there will be no crafts or other things like that until after the first...but, oh boy, how much fu…

My daughter had to have a c=section, and she did wonderful,,,and my son in law also. I'm elated about him and that my daughter..."my punkin" is doing just fine...

Heading to Florida...Grandson Coming Soon!

Good Saturday Morning everyone,
While my sleep was restless thinking of all the families affected by the tragedy in Connecticut....I'm excited as I finish packing to go to Jacksonville Florida, to be with my daughter and husband, as we get ready to welcome my grandson.

As, I've posted this week....Anna Brooke, has had some major complications, and the doctor feels the need to do a c-section for her health. I think it will be schedule for Tuesday, tomorrow, I will not be choosing my Spotlight of the Week......

I'm going to try and keep everyone posted with pictures and updates as I can. I ask all of you to continue to pray for Brooke during this time for her health and the babies health.....and for me also....this is my first born having her first born...and my Heart is happy but scared at the same time.

May each of you hold your family close and dear to you today....tell them you love them.....


Prayers for the Families of Tragedy



Happy Thursday Everyone,

Have ya'll met Ms. Lucy? Ms. Lucy is my alter ego.....she can get into trouble and I don't have to!!!

I brought her to Life several years ago, and LOVE painting her on old vintage windows. She has been sold and gone home with several "southern belles" down here in South Georgia. But, she let me know that she needed a Christmas outfit so she could "spread the Holiday Cheer".  So, she donned her finest "red velvet dress, trimmed with black mink" and her ever present her hair done with her highlights....and she is ready!

And, yes she is built like me...."she has some junk in her trunk"....but that's just more to love!!

I hope ya'll enjoy meeting Ms. Lucy!


I Was Featured at:

Wow, I was so surprised, but, oh so happy.

Brass Plant Chain Necklace!

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

So, I'm still awaiting a phone call from my daughter in Florida to tell me if my grandson is ready to be born......jumping every time the phone rings.....running around here like a crazy person.....
I needed something to do.

So, I pulled out my tool box where I keep all things jewelry, and thought...hummmmmm.....what can I make. As, i sat there, I noticed a plastic box of "brass chain" I had gotten for another project that I had never done, and thought, Wow....that is so pretty!

So, I pulled it out and started working on it....i think it turned out is bright and shiny, and looks "kinda like real gold", and think it will look wonderful with all my sweaters.

Hope you like it!

Blessings, Deborah

Prayers for my Daughter

This is something I would not normally do, but I'm asking all my friends and followers to please say a prayer for my daughter, Anna Brooke. She is 33 years old and expecting my second grandchild any day, any second....I have one grand daughter by my son, but this is Anna's first child. She has been very sick through her pregnancy suffering with her diabetes. She was just diagnosed with Severe Edema, and I think the doctor is going to go ahead and pull her from work.

This is the best thing to do, but it will cause an extreme financial problem for her and her husband. As, the way her maternity leave pay works the pay will not kick in until Alan, the baby, is born. The plans for now are for her to stop work tomorrow and be induced next Tuesday, but that will leave almost a week of pay she will not be getting and she needs that.

I told her today, that I knew things would work out for her....I had Faith in my Higher Power to watch over her and help her when she needed it. I will pr…

So, please take the time today to drop by and visit her and tell her Three Dawg Lady Designs sent ya. She can be found at :



Okay, I know, everyone is probably tired of my Snowmen.....but, I can't help....they are so cute and so much fun to make and bring to Life!

I've made several sets and sold them to various family and friends, and I get so excited when I put the finishing touches on them and FINALLY wrap their little scarves around their necks.....and then...THERE THEY ARE!!! Looking so cute and waiting to go to their new home.

I wanted to share with you a couple sets that I had finished....

Why Didn't I think of this Earlier????

Over 35 years ago...a man by the name of Paul Tang came to my hometown of Waycross, Georgia and opened   a small Chinese restaurant called Wong's Palace.  To say that it has thrived is an understatement!! It has grown into one of the BEST and NICEST places in Waycross.
Food has always been spectacular...and service superb! I ate there, my entire family always ate there....I took my children there....heck, my father who was a local attorney ate there almost DAILY!!1 Loved the shrimp with lobster sauce!

But, more importantly, Mr. Paul and his family became an integral part of our community...when ANYONE needs equipment for a school....Mr. Paul was there. When a family was in crisis....Mr. Paul was there. When South Georgia had the horribles fires back in 2007 that were on the nightly news...Mr. Paul and his staff  were at the fire check in point for the volunteers DAILY! With for the firefighters....buying batteries for the flashlights that they needed....ANYTHING!!! M…

NEW Vintage Red Christmas Purse! Oh My!

Happy Friday everyone...I hope everyone is doing great! Well, I've been working on making more of my precious snowman families.....and I'm loving it and them....bringing them to life....seeing what type of personality they will have....and I'm making a set for my parents....can't wait to finish them.

Sooooo, I took a much needed break this morning and drove out to our new Goodwill store and thought I would just scout around to see what I might me some Goodwill! So, I'm walking and looking, and I turn an isle and there "she" was...right there waiting on me.

A beautiful, RED, real leather purse with working clasp.....from at least the mid to late 50's! I was so excited...I looked around to make sure no one else was looking at her, and I grabbed her!!! Mine, mine, mine! I have been looking for a red vintage purse to use for the holidays. I love vintage purses...heck, I love PURSES! I think that is what caused my divorce years ago....he said &q…

All the Give A Ways!! I'm turning into MY GRANNY DUFFY!

I have a confession to make to all of dear followers.....I'm an ADDICT! is hard for me to admit...but I'm ADDICTED to all the FABULOUS Give a Ways that are out there right now. There are books, kitchen items, makeup, clothes, GIFT CARDS, and yes, even CASH!! So this morning after getting up, walking the dog, and grabbing that first cup of Java, I quickly ran to the computer to check my email quickly.....I just knew I had won SOMETHING!!! But when I realized that I wouldn't be seeing this:
I realized that I had turned into my Granny Duffy!  She was an absolutely marvelous and wonderful Grandmother. A little, tiny woman with beautiful red hair, and the kinda of laugh that made you laugh with her...and the BEST cook ever. She lived in a beautiful home that always had smells of her baking when you walked inside. She did everything....cooked, baked, gardened, and even went fishing by herself after my Granddaddy passed away....and she couldn't even swim.
In …


When I started my blog back at the first of the year...heck, I didn't even really know what a blog was. I just went to Google and set up a blog! And, the day was so hectic that day. Our beautiful pitt bull...Sapphire...was giving birth to her first litter of puppies....IN MY CLOSET!!! Yep...we tried very hard to get her to her spot, but she wanted to be in her "Granny's closet"!

So, I was running back and forth to the office and then back to my was a HOOT! But, anyway, here I go telling another my children would say..Get to the point Mom. So, that night after birthing puppies all day...not me, but spent almost the whole night on my blog. I found out how to Follow a blog.....Share my blog....take and share pics....and read some of the most amazing blogs out there. One of my Favs from the beginning was Lisa over at Creative Raisins! She is a mother of 3 and lives in Canada. She is such a talented lady.

Well, the other day whi…

More Senorita Sunrise Collection!!

I LOVE TURQUOISE!! I do...I can't help it. Ever since I went to Mexico for the first time in my teens on family vacation and saw that beautiful colored rock for the first has always spoken to me. I have so many pieces...rings....earrings....necklaces.....I even had a toe ring once with turquoise in it! Yep, I did.

So, I have been busy adding to my Senorita Sunrise Collection of jewelry pieces. I use allot of vintage beads and stones...I also collect vintage jewelry and have some nice pieces. But, when I find a piece that I don't really like but the stones are nice, well, then I take it apart and redo it! Hey, isn't that allot of us do? Re Do It!!

So, I finished 3 pieces today....they are a mixture of vintage turquoise and faux....some beautiful red cabochons and some vintage turquoise pearls....Hope you like them.

Simple, but Elegant Table Top

Good Sunday evening everyone....Wow, it was a beautiful day here in South Georgia! I painted on some new holiday signs....I raked in my front yard.....I visited with some friends....and I cut some flowers from my yard.
I have two large camellia white. This year the red, so far, has not come in that good. But, the white camellias are gorgeous. In the front yard, I have a whole trellis of beautiful tea roses....
so, I went and found one of my old decanters, cleaned it up real good, and Voila ....I had a beautiful and simple, bu, elegant table top decoration. It looks so nice sitting next to my Santa's.

I hope you enjoy this, this evening. Blessings,

Holiday Jewelry Creations!!! Senorita Sunrise!

Good Friday evening everyone....well, today has just been wonderful. I've stayed in my pj's all day, and I still am. I had nothing pressing to do, I have crafted and painted and made things all day.

When I started this crafting journey back in early 2009 after my accident and became "disabled". I started with making jewelry, and I loved it. I made my own earrings, and necklaces, but, then I discovered all the other wonderful crafting things out it has been a while since I made jewelry, but, I thought this would be a beautiful holiday set to wear with your "cutest little black dress".

I call this collection...Senorita Sunrise

I hope you like this set....and hope to make more over the weekend....Blessings, Deborah

A Fairy Merry Christmas...New Folk Art

Greetings everyone....

Well,I finally got back to my painting after such a wonderful and "tummy filled" Thanksgiving....and I had seen a holiday card in a shop with little fairies on it.....and I got this idea to paint a cute little fairy flying around getting ready for Christmas. So here she is....

My Happy Humble Holiday Home

HO, HO,HO.....I think I here Santa getting ready for the big night kids! Can you hear him? He survived Black Friday with all it's "hussle and bussle and pushing and shoving", and now he is in the home stretch!!

I LOVE LOVE  Christmas...can you tell? It was....other than Halloween....the BEST time in our family. We had so many things that we did leading up to the big night when I was a little girl and my siblings and I would make "mile long" list for Mom and Dad to give to Santa. After Thanksgiving we would always go pick out our tree....sometimes that was from the "woods". As my Daddy was raised in the "woods of rural South Georgia", and their Christmas trees were always just cut down from "behind the house"...sometimes Daddy would get nostalgic and he would take us all "out to the farm" and we would cut down a tree......sometimes we would just "go buy a tree" which Daddy never likes. And, then we would all gath…

Old Mason Jar Collectors...HELP!!

Hello again....
Late yesterday afternoon I ran to the store for a Coke...yes, I was craving one in that little glass bottle I love.
Anyway, there were some folks in a parking lot having a yard sale. They were packing up and were basically just giving stuff away.

Had a couple boxes that they had marked Free on, while plundering I found what I think is a very old Mason of the old blue ones. I've researched all morning...but I still need some help. It is so old that it DOESN'T have the word perfect on it.

Also, has the original zinc lid with porcelain insert....has bubbles in it as if it was hand blown. But, I haven't been able to find anything else about it...or a really good, I'm reaching out to all my finds here....can anyone help.

Blessings, Deborah

Me and my Daddy...My Hero

Wow, I ate way to much, laughed til my sides ached, and cried when I had to leave. Thanksgiving was wonderful. Every time I'm able to walk into my parents home and smell the wonderful smells of my Mother's cooking and realize that I have been so Blessed to have them both another year, well, my heart swells more than the Grinch! As I've shared with ya'll, my friends in the "blog world that I so love", my Daddy has a brain disease called Pic's....and it will one day take him away from our family, he leaves us slowly each day. But, yesterday, he still had that twinkle in his eyes as we all invaded home again...he still knew whom I was as I chatted and laughed with him. So, I wanted to share a picture of my wonderful Daddy, who is and has always been my True Hero....I look horrible in the pic, but my Daddy was wonderful. I hope each of you had the privilege of spending this special day with someone you love and that loves you. Blessings, Deborah

Happy Thanksgiving To You and Yours

I wanted to take the time to thank all the "bloggin" friends out there that have become my friends and helped me along this journey.

Tomorrow will be a very special day in our family, as my father has a brain disease that takes a piece of him away every day. Each day that he still knows who we are and can still enjoy being with us is a blessings. My siblings and spouses and most of the grandchildren will be there tomorrow and I will cherish every minute of it.

I wish for each of you a wonderful and glorious day filled with lots of Love and Happiness. Happy Thanksgiving from Three Dawg Lady and me.

My First Sock Monkey

Okay, I really, really LOVE sock monkeys! I always have. So, I started looking on the Internet and you tube, and craft blogs finding video's on how to make them.
Of, course since I don't have a sewing machine that works right now, that was added stress on IF I could make one or not.

So, after reading through many sites, I realized I could hand sew one....even if my carpal tunnel killed me, I wanted to try.

It took some time, as the carpal tunnel did act up, and I had to stop and start more times that I wanted to, but....I made one. I have laughed over how it turned out so much that my sides are aching....I think it looks like a Cheshire had alot of fun making it.

Hope you enjoy my attempt! Blessings, Deborah

Nora Roberts, Chunky Monkey, and the Dawg!

Okay folks, everything has changed.....I gave blog a new streamlined  look.....brighter , simpler. Posts on one side.....badges, about me, blogs I party at....everything else on the right. Why, you may ask did I do that? Well, the thing is I don't craft everyday.....but, I do tell stories every day.....either with my sisters, Mom, daughters, friends!!! I'm a story teller, and well, my life reads like fiction.

So, last night I have to tell you, I had a blast...just me and Odawg...yes, that is one of Three Dawg Lady's dogs. We were both snuggled up on the see, he really is my best friend. He loves me just the way I am....short, plump, and love able! LOL. So, I have my new Nora Roberts novel, the third installment of her Inn at Boonsboro trilogy. This one is about the "bad boy brother, Ryder"....and OMG...I can just picture know the type.....hunky, ripped, tousled hair, and a tool belt slung low on his hips!
