Happy Fall Y'all !



After seeing the way Miss Boots so beautifully decorated the veranda, I thought I should make good use of it and do some blogging. LOL.  This is a picture of Gage taken last weekend at Tweetsie amusement park in Blowing Rock, NC. I bet our good friend, Mat remembers hearing about Tweetsie...it was a train that used to run from NC all the way to Johnson City, TN. way back when! It was long before mine and Mat's time, but now that the train no longer runs, they made an amusement park for it. Kind of like Dollywood only on a much smaller scale. Can you see how this child has grown since my last posting? So hard to believe that he will be 5 next spring. He no longer spends every day with Pap and me, he is a 'big boy' now and goes to day care so that there will be other children he can play with and get used to the kindergarten routine. 

I do hope all is well with my blog sisters. I think since Facebook came along we update each other more frequently on there than on our blogs. Just have to get Miss G into the Facebook age and we will be all set. Maybe if we tell her toddies will be served on FB she will decide to give it a try. LOL.

Things here are somewhat the same...Rhett, thankfully has not been ill this summer and we went to get flu shots last week so hopefully we can keep him well this winter. I, on the other hand, have been having thyroid problems which has caused me to gain a considerable amount of weight, which I hate but nothing can be done about it. I'm on Synthroid but it does not help with the weight problem. Oh the benefits of being old! 

Ok...with thanks again to Miss Boots for both the decorations and the qp, I will sign off now and get ready to watch the new season premier of one of my favorite shows...Nashville! 
Since it's chilly out tonight, I have left toddies for y'all. 
Love and hugs,
Miss Scarlett

Oh My....

I haven't blogged since Feb.!! You're kidding, right?!?!?!? I suppose I can blame it all on that FB thing. That and the fact that I have started so many scrap pages lately only to get frustrated and delete them because I can't seem to get creative any more... It's not that I don't have the inspiration or enough pics to scrap...I just can't seem to make myself happy with anything I try to create. I never thought of myself as really artistic but I look at other peoples scrap pages and think "why can't I do that?".  So I do a page every once in a while and post it on FB and that's as far as it gets.

I do so enjoy the QP's made by Miss Boots and Mat and I try to take inspiration from them, but I'm just a big flop! Kyra has some awesome kits as well as some other favorites of mine but I can't seem to do anything that meets my own standards. I'm still using PSE5 and wondering if I should upgrade.

Well, I'm sure y'all have heard enough of my complaining so here is the latest little thing I did. Going through Gage's pics and comparing them...can't believe how grown up he looks compared to pics from just a couple of years ago...he's only 4 you know, lol.

Kit is from our talented friend, Kyra.

Love and hugs to all,
Miss Scarlett
  ps: I do have juleps on the veranda if y'all want to come by. :)

Finally...Enough Snow for a Snowman

So...we have been waiting all winter for enough snow to make a decent snowman. All we have had so far has been less than an inch...we had to go almost all the way through the alphabet to get to "winter storm Paz" before we ended up with 7 or 9 inches, depending on where you live. We live in the city so we only have 7 inches. Gage lives about 3 miles away and they have 9 inches.

 I honestly don't remember snow having names when I was growing up...it was simply 'winter'. lol.
Although we are happy to be playing in the snow, I feel really bad for the folks who got ice and have been without power for days. We have 'been there, done that' and it is certainly not fun.

I have more Gage pics but wanted to get this one done so I could use Linda's really cute snowman qp. Thank you, my friend for sharing your talent with us.
Hugs to all,
Miss Scarlett
