Ironicly enough, I don't know if Radegund knows this, but kentucky really does have a Transylvania University!
And I shoud have mentioned this before, but forgot like a big doofus-I what to give props for the idea for the raygun to Atlascoughed. Hers are works of art that you would carry proudly upon your dirigible, or space ship-but she gave me the idea of using a water pistol as a base.Thanks!
I just recieved from Radegund-I'M NOT WORTHY!! Bows, a la wayne's world.She's going to post pictures. She went above and beyond, and I love it all.The most beautiful bag and journal, amazing jewelry box-with jewelry-hand painted votives,test tubes,candy, a great letter-I'm blown away. Thank you so much, for your talent and generosity!
Local sweets-called Modjeskas,(after an singer who liked them,I think) by the local store that started them-Majestics by others-kind of a marshmallow cream centered caramel. Derby pie-like chess pie or pecan pie,but with chocolate. But hands down-Rebecca Ruth cream pull candy. Hard to describe,melts in your mouth. I think you have to make it on a marble slab, but it's not taffy. Wish I could afford to swap overseas, darn it! I like the idea of adding local treats to our swap packages. Back to being crafty-I've got a couple of ideas, and I've bought some supplies. I just need to find the time to start playing around with it. Soon!
Am I the only one who will score a great find at the thrift store for a dollar or two, thinking what a great thing I can make from my bargin-then-by the time I add stuff from my stash, go to the craft store, decide I need another color of paint-well, let's just say it ends up more than a dollar.
Murbeck, I was married 10 years and 35-almost 36-when mine came along.And we didn't think it would happen either. Which is why I have a middle schooler when the rest of my compatriots are grannies. And since menopause hit way early, she's an only. I truly hope things work out for you, and I'm sending lots of good vibes your way!
