hi, hope your weekend has been a good one!
I've been busy making cookies, going to flea markets, and
finishing some 4th of juLy pieces!
Here's eLijAh, one of the keebler elves who helped me
make peanut butter cookies. He is his mother's boy for
sure - he likes the dough better than the cookies!

Here is my flea market treasure:

A fisher-price record player - SQUEAL!!!
for a dollar - and it even WORKS - SQUEAL again!!!
I had one of these, I think I must have been 4 or 5,
and LOVED it!
My favorites that I can remember,
and mOm, please feel
free to comment,
the ledo shuffle by boz scaggs and
christmas with the chipmunks.
Remember this was mid to late seventies.
For those of you doing the math I'll save you the time,
I'll be 36 in november :)
I finished up some fun and festive 4th of juLy baubles
for the shop (click on pictures for more detail):

I'll spend the next few days finishing some
sPoOkytiMe jiNgLes pieces. I have several in the works
but nothing is finished yet. In fact, there are pieces
scattered EVERYWHERE on my table
in various stages of completion. I work on something,
put it down and come back to it again, and
sometimes again and again. And while I'm
working something else will pop in my head
and I'll start that. Welcome to my whirlwind :)
I'm off to do a few more things while eLijAh naps :)
iN jOy,

my, what a treasure. I think I have one of those in my basement. Hmmm! I'll have to take a look/see. Those patriotic pieces are wonderful.

Wonderful pictures but your son's little elfin face is simply precious! I have to post a photo of my grandkids one of these days (ages 3, 2 and 9 months - think my daughter's busy?). :)
