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 today...so, 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 there.....so 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
Faux white turquoise and coral

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

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 gather and decorate as a family....BUT, my Mom was the only one who could precisely place each and every piece of tinsel as we children tended to just throw a hand full on the tree. As the "big night" crept closer, we would be full of anticipation and excitement as to what Santa would bring.

Usually the weekend before or a couple days before Christmas, depending on when Christmas fell, we would drive to Jesup, Georgia where my Moms parents lived and celebrate Christmas with them and "all the cousins". My Grandmother Duffy was just a "hoot"....her Christmas tree was one of those "silver tinsel" trees....do ya'll remember those? And it had a "colored wheel that revolved and shone on it changing the colors as it twirled! OMG.....how I loved that tree! Then usually Christmas day we would drive to "the country" and celebrate with my Daddy's parents with "their walked in the woods and chopped down a pine tree" tree.....Oh, I was so blessed with both set of grandparents. Then, on the BIG NIGHT we would go eat at a local restaurant here in Waycross called The Steak House owned my a friend of my Daddy's. Mr. Jimmy's place was awesome...he made homemade potato chips for us as we waited on food...all the time us 4 children "just knowing" that Santa would come while we were gone. I cherish those memories every day of my life.

So, I finally decorated over the weekend, and since I moved and am living by myself, I downsized, but still wanted to share pictures with you. So, from Three Dawg Lady's house to yours...

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 them....so, while plundering I found what I think is a very old Mason Jar...one 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 site....so, 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
Daddy, Gdaddy, Big Daddy, and Big D....My Hero!

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 Attempt....lol

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 Cat....lol.....but had alot of fun making it.

Hope you enjoy my attempt! Blessings, Deborah
Looking okay so far

Cat Ears....lol

Cheshire Cat Grin

Can't  stop laughing!

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 couch...you 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 him.....you know the type.....hunky, ripped, tousled hair, and a tool belt slung low on his hips!
Well, you get the picture....so I've got my pint of Chunky Monkey from Ben and Jerry's....omg...I love that stuff. And, Odawg is curled at one end of couch...I'm reading a really "heated scene" in book....spoon shoveling Chunky Monkey in....and all of a sudden....I just stop and just start laughing. The dog, the ice cream, the book.....OMG.....I've turned into a old lady that sits around reading romance novels, eating herself into oblivion....

But, then I stop and think....it could be worse.....it could just be me and the book and the ice cream with out my dog.

I hope everyone has a great day and more stories and crafts to come.

Blessings, Deborah

19th AMENDMENT!!! GO VOTE!!!

Do you know what country became the FIRST to allow Women the Right to Vote was? The USA ..right? NO...the first country to allow women the right to vote was New Zealand in 1893!

Our great great grandmothers, and aunts , and cousins, and strangers that have "no kin" to us..Fought a very long battle to get EACH of us the Right to Vote! Now, I'm not going to sit here and tell you how to vote...I'm not going to preach about faith......or tell you whom I voted for....or expound on the names I've been called because of a political button I may have had on when I went to the grocery store...

BUT, I will tell you as a WOMAN, and most of the blogs I follow and the people that follow me are WOMEN....I will tell you that as an AMERICAN WOMAN it is important that all WOMEN VOTE!

Go exercise that 19th Amendment and as an AMERICAN WOMAN....Go Vote!

Blessings to you as you go exercise that RIGHT today, Deborah

SPOTLIGHT OF THE WEEK: i should be mopping the floor

Have ya'll had the pleasure of meeting Kristi over at "i should be mopping the floor"? Well, let me tell ya, that is one amazing talented woman. First off, I have to say when I started blogging at the first of the year, and started the long journey or reaching out and searching for craft blogs to follow, I was amazed that there were SO MANY out there! There is alot of talented folks out there...but not to get off topic, because anyone who knows me, knows I tend to do that.
But, one day I saw her blog name...and I just started laughing, because at the time...the dogs needed walking, the clothes needed washing, and I had a whole stack of projects that needed finishing...so I loved her blog name first! Then, I checked the blog out and WOW, what can't hat woman do.
She always post something so heartfelt when ever she writes, and her projects are beautiful! She had one project that I'm going to try very soon, and she painted a cloth chair! Just gorgeous.

So, check Kristi and her wonderful blog out at: http://www.ishouldbemoppingthefloor.com/
