I'm a May Day baby !!!!!
That means it is my birthday today. I am 64 years old and still do a lot like when I was 46. If I knew how, I would have confetti flying all over this post. I love birthdays. As long as I'm not sick, let them come.
This is my PS.....
It is the still life I finished Wednesday. A few years ago we took some objects, sat them by a window, then took pictures. This is one we took . The lamp is so nice. The shade is a sea shell. It is my friend's. Trying to talk him out of it. Not going too good. The painting is done in pastels.
I hope you all have a fun SP.... I know I will!!!!!

I have been doing it a lot.
Worked in the yard, made some tassels, and even did a little cleaning... not much. I do not want to get this house too clean. Put some plates up in the patio. Changed some doll clothes. Put mattes on some of the finished paintings. Also framed my grandma's confirmation certificate. It is over 120 years old .
We bought a vintage moving cart at a auction awhile back .I started cleaning it. It has dirt coated on the wheels. It now sits in a tub of water (hope it does not snow) . After I get the dirt off , I will seal it, put some kind of wood on it and use it for a coffee table. Not sure if I want it painted with something on it or just stain it. Maybe apples or mixed flowers. Will do it in oils.
Tomorrow I go paint with Vern. Will finish my pastel still life. Then having some friends over for dinner .They are leaving for a new job in Italy on Friday. Maybe I can go see them . I will get there again some how.
I'm still doing my new recipes. Made chicken with sour cream and buttermilk. Also, sour cream and cheese potatoes... alot of cheese. They were okay. Will not make again. It was way too much money for the taste. Also made Joe a special dessert...custard with a caramel sauce. (Flan Cr'me Caramel). Turned out great. At least Joe said so! Made some cookies...chocolate and chocolate chips. They are okay.
I'm learning more about blogs. Will work on this .

My First White Wednesday #1
I did not realize I had so many things white. Last summer we had our patio enclosed and I did it shabby chic, also white bedroom and bathroom with a lot of white.
When I was younger, me and my sister had pretty hands, long thin fingers and nice shaped finger nails. My granddaughter have them now . So I started collecting hands. I have a few different ones, of different shapes and colors and materials. I'm sure I will post them at different times .
Himstedt dolls. I have about 18 different dolls and one set of twins. There is a Santa head and a fake cupcake. The white blanket is from the auction I was at Sunday. It was in a box with some more baby outfits, along with the rabbit and the thread.
The is a beach in or around Atlantic City. When my husband retired, we took a trip up and down the East Coast .We were gone six weeks. He is from Pa.
Our car was "full to the max"!! I had a friend that I went to see in Europe and she now lives in Virginia. When she came back to the states, she had my things I bought over there, in with her things. so I had all them. Plus, there was a place going out of business that sold Nantucket baskets. Boy, I went crazy.
