Star Papers 1886

From the Book of Days called "The Beecher" ca. 1886 the title: December
Silent the month advances. There is nothing to destroy, but much to bury. Bury, then, thou snow, that fallest through the still air. Bury all that the year hath known, and let thy brilliant stars, that never shine as they do in they frostiest nights, behold the work! Thou art the month of resurrection, In thee, the Christ came. Every star, that looks down upon thy labor and toil of burial, knows that all things shall come forth gain. Death shall live. Life shall rejoice. It is Life! It is life through the whole year.

Notions of Christmas

It's been so long since I've posted to my Rosa home....I actually feel neglectful! Well, it's a winter wonderland once again, in Wisconsin. We had 18" in one's beautiful, but I lost 3 of my very old thick lilac branches, sob, sob. Oh well, that will encourage new growth this spring and maybe I will be able to reach some of the blooms now. I'm posting several xmas pics to update my blog.

Mr. Jack

Mr. Jack is a needlepunch project made by me. The design is from a kit, I chose the colors. These are little miniature rugs made by punching embroidery floss into weavers cloth. Much like rug hooking and fun! I applied the rug to woven fabric, embroidered around the edge then framed it. hee, hee, he

Cash for Klunkers...Cale's New Car

Cale has been driving his 95 Dodge Ram Truck for years. He bought it with 119,000 miles on it and now it has 220,000. He put a lot of work in it over the years he changed the exhaust so it had a really nice rumbling sound. I always recognized the sound of his truck when he came home to visit (which isn't often enough). Now, with his new vehicle he may want to take a Sunday drive to visit his MOM and DaD. It's sad to think it's going to be crushed in the cash for klunkers offer. $4500 toward the new vehicle, which ended yesterday. He got in that just under the wire. He ended up getting $1200 more than he paid for the truck in the first place. He's going to email a photo so we will always remember the DODGE RAM!

The trio in NYC, Emily is Cale's girlfriend. We just love her, she is so funny and pretty!

My lovely adult children, Cale and Heather, together in NYC. I wish we could all be together more often than what we have. Life is fleeting, speeding by, time seems to play tricks on us. Before you know it, we look back and find that there isn't much left. So, we cherish every second.
