Anna that is so cute!!! I could kick myself cuz I threw an old jewelry box like that away! That would make a nice gift for a little girl. Thanks for the link

Charlotte - I tell my kids they can only take the camaro to the prom if they have straight A's and no missed days of school - so I don't have to worry about them taking it. LOL. We have classic plates on ours, so it can't be driven much. Have fun with the mustang!

Anna, love that jewelry project, thanks for sharing

I had pears way up in the tree that I couldn't reach and didn't want to just shake the tree and bruise them. So..... we took a piece of conduit (1") size about 10 foot long and screwed a one gallon empty and clean food can to it. Put some foam rubber in the bottom of the can and I now have a "fruit picker" without having to go buy anything! Yeah!

myan, I am soooo jealous!!! I would kill for a craft room!
We all get heavier as we get older,
because there's a lot more information in our heads.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Don't get your knickers in a knot It makes you walk funny!
