A is for Antique...this is the pincushion my Mom made as her first sewing project when she was 9 years old. I won't say how many years ago that was, but it does qualify as an antique. It has seen better days - it was once lavender and yellow. The author of this post is responsible for coloring on the button with a tailoring pencil and time and use are responsible for the "shabby but not chic" appearance. Since it is stuffed with sawdust, I cannot wash it. Mom says to photograph and toss. I haven't decided yet.
A is for Alaska...where several family members have lived since the 1920s. This summer Hubby and I hope to take a long overdue honeymoon in Juneau. This is where my cousin's Ted and Barbara live. Please pray for Barbara...she is the one with brain cancer.
A is for Princess A...who has a flair for melodrama. This is her Joanne Worley impression! LOL
A is for Awl...This is an antique awl that I found in my Grandma Hopkins' button can.
A is for Applique...these are the flowers appliqued on my bedspread, a wreath of flowers around the log cabin blocks in the center.
A is for Art and Artist...this is a sketch of the water towers in Mendocino, CA by my Hubby who is talented as a pen and ink artist. Art plays a huge part in our lives and in my family. My Aunt Grace is also an artist.
Naturally, A is for Apples...These beauties were photographed at Apple Hill in Placerville/Camino.
A is for Abbie...an Animal...who thinks she is Queen of the Home.
A is for Amy who I Adore :o)
A is for Atholl Palace...in Pitlochry, Scotland. A stay here was a gift for my 28th birthday from my "English Mum".

Phew! You made it to the end! :o)
