My Dad 1927-2014...

My dad passed away on July 7th, 2014.
One day as we were discussing death and funerals he said, "When I die I want to be at home, on my couch, watching T.V, and just go to sleep." That appears to be exactly how he went. He was almost 87, still living by himself, and as sharp as a tack. My nephew who found him said his hands were folded in his lap just like he always kept them.
 
It's been a hard month. It doesn't seem possible that he's gone. It feels like I can pick up the phone and call him, or drive up and get him for breakfast, but I can't. I realize that death is part of life and it is all part of God's plan. God is good.

The last song played at the funeral was his favorite fiddle tune.
His two sons, four grandsons, and two granddaughters were among the 20 plus musicians that played  
"Florida Blues"
 Just for him.
He will forever be missed.

Amigurumi Finally Complete...

Here is a previous post from February 9, 2014.
 
I discovered these cute little crocheted animals while browsing Pinterest. I ordered the pattern from http://www.etsy.com/shop/TinyAmigurumi.
After starting over numerous times I think I am finally happy with all the parts, and now it's time to sew them together.
Here is a picture from the website of what it should look like.
 
I said I would post the finished product, so here it is.
Have a great week!!!!

First Monday In April...

Here it is April already. Where is the year going? I just celebrated another birthday. They are officially running together. I don't really mind telling my age, but when my elderly cousin puts it on Facebook for the world to see, ouch, it sinks in. Doesn't he know the rule about not telling a women's age? At least it wasn't my weight, right? There's always a positive. 

I saw this on Facebook. I love it, but I wonder if this poor man has thought about the clean up. He must need something to do. I wonder if his wife said, "Honey, go hang these eggs in that tree while I go shopping." Hmmmm, I may need to remember this when Hubby retires. 
Have a great week!!!

Antiquing Again...

My friends and I went antiquing again this past Wednesday. It was nine and a half hours of rummaging paradise.
I snagged a Case pocketknife, literally from the box of an old man that had come in to sell a few things to the dealer.

Then for nearly two hours we sifted through the contents of an old tub full of thousands upon thousands of buttons and broken costume jewelry (to be used for a future craft project).
A sampling of my treasure trove.
 This print called my name the first time I laid eyes on it on January 9th. I couldn't get it out of my mind, so when I went back I was on a mission. I talked the lady into keeping the ugly frame it was in and selling it to me for half the original price. My friend named him Samuel. I think that's a proper name, don't you. The real secret is, I would have paid full price. I mean who could pass up that adorable little face?

Last but not least, I added to my sock monkey collection.
Meet Mr. & Mrs. Sock Monkey.
Our time was well spent.
Have a great week!!!
