Testing a new background and layout! All those little techie thingys make my brain hurt!!!
Happy VTT to you all!!!!
Last week I overwhelmed you with a whole room. I do get carried away sometimes!
This week I'll just show y'all the corner of our workroom/den that is mine. More specifically - the stuff on my wall over my ginormous cutting table. (Yeah, go ahead and be jealous of my cutting table - heehee)
From left to right...........
Peaking from those 3 wide shelves of de-stash fabric - box that now contains only one of the original 45's of the "Show Boat" soundtrack.
Lucky me, the remaining record is Ava Gardner singing "Bill." The producers didn't want to use her voice even though they all agreed she sang beautifully.
A really, really old Ouija board from my great Grandparents House. The pointer is missing so we can't conjure spirits or answers to our innermost questions ;-)
A closer view of my thimble collection and some old wooden spools, some with thread.
The lower half with more threads, a trinket from Washington, DC, tatting shuttles and a cute old bottle that held Violet perfume.
I love my "Ladies who Shop and Lunch" Coca-Cola ad. The old magazine ad also mentions that the ladies outfits were made with Vogue sewing patterns! Cool Clemson poster above.
Just the other side of my cool scrap organizer I have another old magazine ad with Gene Tierney selling us Lux with Color Freshener! James Cagney pic from a now closed Applebee's restaurant, pennants from fav teams. (My 1960's Wake Forest pennant is on another wall.)
My first Barbie clothing pattern.
I have other patterns framed but those pics are far worse than this one!
Here we have my teachers, my Grand Mothers.
To the left there I am with Grandma Porter. She was evidently the giver of the tools, hat and apron.
To the right is [Grand]Mama Holbrook and my Mom at the oft mentioned Great Grand Parents house.
Both Grands taught me about cooking and sewing and gardening and so much more.
I miss them, but the pictures (which I just slapped up on the wall behind a glass with thumbtacks)
remind me of their unconditional love and guidance.

Before you go, I added one thing to my De-stash along 2010 list! I've been sewing others folks' stuff and haven't taken much time to do stuff for us.
Here are our two new additions - I've adopted 2 feral neighborhood cats.
Kitteh Kitteh Lovey
She's a teeny (7 lbs) talker! Skittish but comes when called and loves her catnip toys.
He roams but we did manage to get him fixed last week. Stanley likes to come in for short visits and loves to be rubbed and to purrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
No Grand daughter Aubree yet!!! But soon!
