If You Ask Me... is far too early to embrace Autumn.

However, these little guys may just change my mind.

Lost, Found or Hand-Me-Down

Looky what I found TODAY at Michael's (ugh) on clearance (yeah)..........
Undersea Buttons!

I am a big fan of the Walrus and Octopus, but I was pleasantly surprised when I found the Jellyfish swimming around in there too.  Didn't catch him when I was at the store....probably due to having a little person with me.  I am thinking of adding one to a bag, another to a cardigan and making a pin of another.  Although, I am not sure which for what.  Or what of the rest?  And when?  So many questions.......

What did you find today?

Lost, Found or Hand-Me-Down

Happy Tuesday!  Look what I found in Gram's sewing box....a tracing wheel.

Not sure how old this thing is, but very cool.  I remember using one of these in Home EC in sixth grade.  Maybe now this little guy and Gram's machine will give me the encouragement I need to start actually sewing...maybe not.  Either way, her sewing box is a trunk full of wonderful treasures and if nothing else I could always pretend that I am a great sorceress seamstress.  What did you find today?

Lost, Found or Hand-Me-Down

Sorry I'm late.  No excuses....just couldn't get here on time this time.

Hand-Me-Down Beethoven and other mesmerizing classic artists are joining me this week from Gram's records to bid farewell to the loss of St. Louis' Classical Radio Station, 99.1.  Sadly and quite disturbingly they were bought out by a Christian radio station.  I am not disturbed, although still sad,  that they are now owned by a Christian organization, but rather their new owners were not even the highest bidders.  99.1 was so well loved that local groups and fans tried to buy the station and keep it tuned to the classics.......the real classics.  For whatever reason the initial money did not win out and is, in my opinion, a detriment to our city.

So now that the 9th Symphony has played its last note on our airwaves I will turn to my Gram's albums to keep me in good company.  They always listen and so do I.

Still adjusting to the real world from a 10-day hiatus.
