Annabelle (Bella)

When Bella was born it was a new era for me, I became a Great Grandma…Our plan is to go to Washington State and have Christmas with Bella and her Mom and Dad in their new home.

This is our little Peach of a girl now:)

Kayla looks so lovely too!

Halloween with the Nell’s

Yesterday was really nice. My daughter Jenny and I spent the day together. First we went to Joann’s for fabric for her antique dinning chair seats that they bought recently. So we bought fabric, so many choices, Oh MY! Went to lunch at Smash Burger..yes, I went off my diet for a day, it was so good.:(smashisbetter My first fried pickles…Yummmmm!

Then we came back to Jenny’s and while she was carving Pumpkins, I covered the seats of the 4 chairs.DSCN2722 DSCN2719

Went to pick up Finley from the groomers.DSCN2723

Watched Summit and friends getting ready for the night of candy searching in the neighborhood.DSCN2725  DSCN2726

Then Doug took me to see all the pickets he has, and I pick out what I wanted for my soon to be headboard, and he will deliver them to me. I can hardly wait.

Then I came home! It was a very good day.

Then later watched a scary movie… 


Magic Wand information

Lynn from Getting my Feet Wet has some questions about my new toy.So I scanned the box with the wand to answer some questions.

I am still learning. My daughter and I went shopping yesterday, so a couple of the pictures are from her and I playing around. But first here is some information about the Wand…..

We went to the fabric store and I scanned a pattern that I am thinking about getting.


I did it fast so it’s not perfect, but you get the idea.


Showing my Grandson how it works.

I am on a learning curve, I will get better at it as time goes by.

I bought this on the”Home Shopping Network. It was under a hundred dollars. I never by off TV. I was channel surfing when I stopped to see what they were doing, and it was something I had never heard of and I found myself on the phone. I hope this answers your questions.

Happy Fall, Mary

Magic Wand

No it is not from Harry Potter…but it is fun.




I know, another gadget….here is what it can do. It will scan anything that is flat. I am using it right now for photo albums, but I see all kinds of ways to use it. Since I am working with our family photos, it is scanning them one by one and it takes loads of time. This way I scan in seconds, then put it on the computer. It has a case, you can take it with you shopping or anywhere.


Me, my cousin Lee and Pip the pup….1960’s

I scanned a lot of photos last night. It does a good job.

It is going to be a long night on the eastern coast states….



It seems far away since I am in Idaho…but no matter where we are this is a very sad time. I probably will be glued to the TV a lot of the night. Sending prayers!!!

What are you afraid of ???????


Yes, this is a question just for you…I know we are a little mature for Halloween, but most people have something they would rather not deal with out of fear!

As you can see I have a thing about spiders. Not just the big one, the tiny ones you can hardly see.

So with that said, what are you afraid of ???
