I want to thank all of y'all who have left such wonderful comments.  I love following you and seeing such wonderful posts.   You make my heart smile!!!!
Time for another challenge at The Craft Barn.  This time it is the letter Fe through Fr.
I have chosen the word FEMALE - how appropriate since I am a female!!!!!

I am having so much fun with this challenge and will have a wonderful gift for my daughter  - she loves this and I know she will treasure it always and pass it on to one of my granddaughters!

One of my favorite things to do is visit art museums and since we live so far back in the mountains, I do not get the chance as often as I would like. But I have to tell you, visiting all of your blogs has given me more pleasure than you will ever know.  You guys are so talented -- I do love you!!!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments!!

From Russia with Love

The letter from the latest Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn found here
is the letter 'K'.  I have chosen the world Kremlin.  Such an exciting adventure for one Mom and her  talented daughter.

My smart and talented daughter Stacy.  Behind her is St. Basil's Cathedral  and to the right  is the Kremlin.


What wonderful memories - Stacy and Mom in Red Square.

A little explanation is in order.  Some twenty years ago, my daughter taught English to high school students in Poland while serving in the Peace Corps.  At the end of her two years, I went and stayed with her in Ulanow, the village she taught in.  We then spent several weeks touring Poland and other Eastern European countries.  For two women alone, we had one exciting adventure!!!  I will never forget it.  Thanks Stacy.

I appreciate your visit and love your comments!!!!!

I Believe .. Do You?

Beneath my kitchen window at the woods edge, there is a village of magic mushrooms.

The Alpha Challenge at the Craft Barn is the letter 'A'.  I have chosen the word AGARIC which is the name of various fungi.  Many of the species are edible like the common mushroom, wile others are deleterious and even poisonous.  You can find the details of this super fun dictionary challenge here.


 Fairies always pick the most beautiful mushrooms for their homes.  Not only that, but they are always poisonous mushrooms.  You don't eat your house, do you think fairies eat theirs!?!  Besides, living in apoisonous fungi is a means of protection.  How clever these fairies  are!!

Thanks for your visit and your sweet comments.  Doing this dictionary is sooooo much fun!
