She DID fall off the turnip truck

I love that expression and yes, I appear to have fallen off.  My biggest hold-up is the inability to get my photo program to work properly.  Blogs without any photos are soooooo boring.

So let's do a bit of catching up.  Thanksgiving was fun and busy with 9 of us enjoying turkey and all the requisite trimmings.  E's brother Henry came from Michigan and cousins from Everett came as well.  Fun, tasty and a grand afternoon and evening.

So the big run-up to Christmas begins (actually, it is well on its way).  Nana has had several items to get completed:

We also got a new tree planted in the front grass strip.

Several concerts and a couple of plays.  Shopping and wrapping for our adopted Christmas family.  I had a very fun day beginning the "catch up" with friend Julia.  She had moved away almost 20 years ago, but has now moved back into the area.  She took me to a marvelous new place:  The Chalet in the Woods.   Oh such fun!

A charming locale for all variety of Scandinavian items.  We were greeted at the door with a cup of coffee and a cookie and invited inside to wander to our heart's content.  What a treat.  Limited hours, but if you are interested I can tell you how to find it in Gig Harbor.  And yes, Nana did manage to find a couple of Christmas gifts there.
The sweet little girls are getting very excited for Santa Claus to come and visit their house.  Some sleep sacks and baby quilts for CTA - and I have been keeping busy, all in all.  

Hoping that your holidays are blessed.


  1. Such sweet little faces of the girls! They are getting so big! Did you make that beautiful dress with jacket? It is lovely! Glad you are enjoying the season! Happy Holidays!

    1. Yes, the little blue dress and jacket are for the 9 jaar grandgirl - she wanted something really pretty for her doll. That is a scrap of fabric, but the fanciest one I had in my collection. The little girls are not in love with dolls, so they don't have any interest. Interesting how they are so different.

    2. Oh, that sweet little dress, how lovely! Is it for the 9 year old, or for the doll? Lovely pictures. You are right a blog without pictures is boring, glad you add quite some.
