In A Pickle

I heard this phrase this morning on the radio and just thought about how many times I have said this. Have you ever RSVP'd to two events on the same day and couldn't decide which one to attend? How about been out driving-run out of gas and forgot your phone--I did that one!!! Scary for sure.

Pickle is derived from the Dutch word 'pekel' which means something piquant.  It is something spiced, salted with vinegar and used as a preservatives.

The term "in a pickle" refers to how the vegetables feel all mixed up and disorientated in the jar!!

Do you like pickled flavored food? I tried pickle flavored sunflowers last summer and could not eat but one!

I did however seen this on google today, might go try a bag.

Kosher Dill, Genuine Dill, Sweet or Bread & Butter--what's your preference???????

Back to sewing

It's been quite a few months that I have used my sewing machine, so much else going on.

Here's a few pieces I have done in the last two weeks:

A dress made of a tweed like fabric.

Up close

Dusters seem to be making a comeback and I wanted one to go with nice jeans and dress boots.  The ones I saw were pricy so I'm making one. I love vintage looking fabric so I chose this one.

Everything is done but the armholes.

My grandmother Jewell's pincushion sit's by me for inspiration!!!

Hope you find inspiration this week to create what you like!!

October in Kansas City

While in the car yesterday (hubby driving) I took several shots of the city.  October is suppose to be quite a bit cooler but I still feel the cool breezes.

The golf courses are still plenty green.

Sunflowers blowin in the wind.

But we do have some trees turning.

Autumn is my favorite season but all the weather experts are saying we are suppose to have lots of snow this year.

My grands love to go to McDonalds, sometimes eat there. Here is the decor in one that just redecorated.

They know Papa had a 1957 blue Chevy so they liked this one. OH he wishes he still had it.

Vinyl seats and everything. Love the records and yes we still have boxes of them!!!

Are you ready for some spooky?

My Sonic always decorates their restaurant with fun spooky Halloween, nothing evil.

Notice the blue sky this October morning!!!!! I'ts cool out here but bright.

When our children were little I put plenty decorations out for Halloween, not so much now but I like seeing cute decorations up everywhere else.

Keep the candy coming!!

It's midweek  and it's ABC Wednesday.  My daughter and her family just got back from a football game in  Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  They had a merry time  in the  French Quarter and eating all the great food.

Granddaughter #1 saw a telephone booth (a minute in history) and had to try it out. I got a phone call that said phone booth. That was a new one for me.  Mom had to capture it.

LSU tigers beat the Missouri tigers so it was a great outcome in their eyes.
