About Me

My photo
I am a Mom, Wife and Daughter. Say road trip and I am all ready in the car. I do love to stay home too. I am either reading, sewing, crocheting, doing something with paper or taking care of my family at any given moment.

A Walk In A Winter Twilight

Picture a day for Thursday February 9,2012
There were birds sitting on these wires I am not sure why they don't show up....
The sun was glowing orange and just ready to drop below the horizon. The mail came very late this day and I needed to get to the bank with a check.... No car so Stephanie and I had a very long cold walk in twilight to complete dark.

To The Fabric Store

This is what I will drive through to get to the Fabric Store!

Things I Need Help Dating and Pricing

Today's photos are all about trying to date and price a couple of items. I have also taken a ton of photos of items that will soon be for sale in my shops..... I have to take advantage of the sunny days in Michigan in the Winter. This is my Photo of the day project for today.
This tray is very tarnished silver but there doesn't appear to be any pits or scratches. It measures ten inches across. The mark says FORBES; S.P.CO; 147.
This decanter or carafe has a clear glass hollow stopper. It is seven inches tall and three and a half inches across the base. There are no marks.
This vase has flowers etched only on the front. It is eight inches tall. The stem and base are clear glass and the base measures three and a half inches across. The top opening is only two and three quarters across. These pieces are from a friend's grandmother's estate but she has no idea where or when her grandmother acquired these pieces. Are they vintage? what kind of price are we looking at... Any help would be appreciated!

Tuesday February 7, 2012 The Implosion That Is My Basement

I am trying to keep up with my photo a day project.... It was too cold and snowy to go for a walk yesterday so here is my basement.... It is worse in the pictures I think... But maybe I am just used to it. I hope that putting it out there for the world to see will inspire me to get it cleaned up more quickly. If you ever need a piece of fabric, a bit of yarn or any other craft material you can think of it is here somewhere... We are a crafty bunch... I am just not very neat about it!
All of the above is my fault....
These last three photos show Gaela and Pat's areas.
