And THIS is why hair color was invented!

Like the caption said - this is why I have gray hairs!  I have 3 boys - all loving to live a bit dangerous.
This is my youngest testing out the new race car he just finished.  It was not running "fast enough" yet according to him.  He said he needs a new motor over winter but Im thinking it is plenty fast - in a mothers eyes.   Hes 19 and has been racing cars since 14 but this level is with the "big guys" and hes still my baby ( he will kill me for that comment!)   But actually if he wasnt having some motor issues I was going to hop in and take it around the track my self - once I learned how to make it go and stop - stopping is a important part Id think. lol  From the looks of the inside its not just gas and go - any time the steering wheel is removable to get inside the car there has to be more to it.
Hope you enjoyed!  AND ps any locals that see this and would like to help sponsor him let me know - hes a young kid and works to pay for this but as any racing fans know it is a very spendy sport.

As promised...

What a busy time!  I tell ya I am ALMOST ready to hunker down for winter - I said almost.  It has been run run with no time for all the "fun" things I thought I would get done.  But with winter comes the 40 below zero temps and the frozen everything!  So maybe I just need more time in the day.

I put together a little photo pile of some of the things that I did get done.

I have been stitching still - I just love these little samplers

And then I have been going to a few auctions - I found a cool little door Ill take a pic of - it is just odd - no idea what it was used for.  And I got a pile of blue mason jars - there are no no-neck ones but I like them just the same. And I got 66 for under $20 so I was happy.

And then there are the Santa's that need to be made this time of year - and oh my oh my do I like this one!!  I will have him on the web site for $58  He is amazing!!  I wish the photos showed how grubby they are but the flash make them look "clean cut" which they are by no means.
And finally its time for some fall in the house -  I love fall but I dont decorate much because the house has to be transformed into the "holiday" house and  I would rather not have to take down a ton of decorations only to put up a ton of Christmas.  So I stick to just a touch.
These gourds I grew and dried and added a bit of shellac to bring out a bit of color.  They are so pretty.
Well thats a little tour - time to read more real estate homework and head to bed.  See there is just not enough hours in the day cause I still have a to do list at the end of each.

OH OH OH  - I just learned that the issue of Country Sampler that I am featured in is out - for subscribers anyway.  I think on newsstands at the end of the month!  I have not seen it yet - exciting!!!

Im Back! Sorry its been awhile

Well I can say one thing about this summer it came and went faster than I could believe.  I have been crazy busy with work and starting classes to get my real estate license. 
I have been creating too!   I will post later today - tomorrow the new creations I have made this summer.
It has been busy getting the house ready to go on the market - yep time to sell.  I have no idea where Ill hang my hat next but I hope it is to really true prim home - one a whole lot smaller!  With the kids grown this is just a dust collector!  Although grand kids.... well that might be awhile since my boys are not married yet - however 2 have found "their girl".   I'm ready when they are! lol  Well speaking of dust - the bunnies are calling my name. 
CHECK BACK later when I have pics up.  OH and one is a Santa I made - he is extremely great!  Hows that for a teaser.
