One down....

Well I decided that despite the PITCH dark on my porch I could base coat the butterfly.

I sprayed 'her' with white, washed her with pale pink and rubbed off all the raised areas. She is almost TOO cute. My spare room bed has pink in the quilt and pink sheets and I like her.

Here she is with a bunny I gave my grandma when I was a little girl.
It is nearly impossible to see the tiny pink roses on the bedspread, but alas they are there.

I fear I would be up all night if I had a well-lighted, well-ventilated work area. It would be necessary for me to have a caffeine IV.
Good night...and I will try not to have three posts a day, but I can't promise anything. I have a non-stop brain. It doesn't always do GOOD things, but it is always going.

Your butterfly came out great! So pretty now.

Thanks for asking about my brother. He is doing a little bit better. He was getting depressed and doesn't think he is getting better fast enough. I try to remind him of the Baby steps are what will get him there one day but he doesn't like to hear that.

His speech has gotten a lot better. He has learned he has to slow down and say each word very clearly. Of course then people don't want to wait for him to complete what he is saying as they already figured it out. I try hard to not interup him as I know it upsets him.

I can understand both sides now. I have learned so much on how to treat others because of what I learned with my brother. I don't think people mean to be mean or hurtful but they sure can be.

I'm sorry to hear about your son. How is he doing?

Feel free to email me whenever you like at

In fact, can you email me your address. I have a wind chime I bought but never hung up that I would like to send him to add to his tree. If that is ok with you.

Hi Sweetie!
I saw your comment on Joanne's post and thought I'd stop by to visit with you! What a great blog you have! I LOVE all your finds and that fact that you will "dumpster dive" for something good. I've done the same thing (hubby thinks I'm nuts to do that) but hey, free is FREE!
I love the story of the elderly gentleman, you were so kind to him.

I have a "New Blogs to Check Out" on my sidebar and I'm going to put you on it if that's ok. This is a FABULOUS blogunity of people and I'd like to welcome you and your decorating ideas and sweetness.

Hugs, Sherry
