Inspiration

There was a time when I held the belief, “If you start a book, you finish a book”. I’m sure this came from 18 years of schooling when teachers and professors picked books for me to read, and, if I wanted to do well in school, I had to readRead More →

I have a singing voice with about a 6 note range…7 if someone steps on my foot really hard. Yet, I love to sing, so I do, and over time I’ve found songs that fit within my limited range. The Beatles’ Paul McCartney and John Lennon use to write 1 song perRead More →

I am soooo excited! A few weeks ago I shared an article I wrote oh so long ago for a past blog. It was titled Unrequited Dreams and spoke of my desire the learn how to watercolor. If you haven’t read the blog and would like to, you can readRead More →

  I will be hard-pressed to convince Tim, who doesn’t particularly like (hmmm, maybe he really dislikes???) cabbage soup, that I really was craving some and that it had absolutely NOTHING to do with the Tin Can Lanterns I shared this morning …that required vegetable cans! Seriously … I boughtRead More →

  Maybe it’s because we’ve had a cool spring or maybe it’s because I’ve been so busy this year, that my annual ritual of bringing out ALL my water color paints has been delayed. But today, yes today, I gathered everything together and, well, instead of retelling an old story,Read More →

If you’ve been following me for any period of time, you’ll know that over a year ago, we needed to move my dad into a home for dementia patients. It was a very hard decision, but, fortunately, the right one. He is happy there. He thrives in the routine andRead More →

I grew up on Joni Mitchell. She is a gifted song writer and a talented performer. Still, to this day, I will frequently have a night with Joni. I’ll dim the lights, light a few candles, get a lovely glass of red wine, put on Joni Mitchell’s Blue album, andRead More →

January 2. The house is unbelievably quite. The children are all gone, the hubby is back to work, and after a VERY quick glimpse at CNN, I find myself back at the computer, after a 2 week hiatus. I scan Pinterest, looking for my daily dose of inspiration, and findRead More →

We have received MANY emails asking us if everything is okay, and if we are continuing Wee Folk Art. I know our postings have been rather sparse these days. I’ve written everyone the same answer, and thought it might be easier to just do a quick blog entry. Here is myRead More →

I've worn bangs for longer than most of our readers have been alive… true story πŸ™‚ Anyway… Tim saw some sassy pics of me in the 70s, with long straight hair and no bangs. Tim: Oh, how cute. (He had enough sense not to say… you WERE so cute. GottaRead More →

I am back after almost 2 weeks spent with my son, Drew, his lovely wife, Meghan, their soon to be 2 year old, Little Lady, and week old, Little Guy. What an indescribably awesome gift, to share in the birth of your child's child. I feel so blessed that Tim andRead More →

For all of our Wee Folk Art friends that don't follow us on Facebook, I'd like to introduce you to the Little Guy! Meghan left for the hospital at 4:30 this morning and LG was born at 5:57! He was 8lbs 6ozs and 21.5". Big baby… fast delivery πŸ™‚ MomRead More →

“I don’t see much sense in that,” said Rabbit. “No,” said Pooh humbly, “there isn’t. But there was going to be when I began it. It’s just that something happened to it along the way.” …from Winnie the Pooh  Michelle and I have decided that we will not be reopening Wee Folk Art MarketRead More →

First off… Michelle and I can’t begin to thank everyone enough for all of your kind words, uplifting thoughts and all the prayers we’ve received on our blog, Facebook and emails. The day after we shared with readers, my mom called me, all weepy and said, “Did you see everything all those kind people wrote on your blog?” “Yes, Mom. IRead More →

I’m sitting here right now trying to decide how much of our personal life I want to share online, but I feel like I need to give some explanation for our actions. Our family is going through a difficult time right now, and it is impossible trying to keep a quality online presence while we are entrenched in a family crisis. Had we known whatRead More →

Monday morning we unveiled our new website. So, of course, we’ve got about 3 weeks of “tweakage” ahead of us. You know about “tweakage”. It’s the little changes that take something from great to awesome. And since Michelle and Tim work for free… to quote Po from Kung Fu Panda,Read More →

What could be more wonderful than a cider mill in the fall? How’s about going to the cider mill with all 4 of my grandbabies! We had a wonderful day, although if I were splitting hairs, it could have been a tad bit cooler. Bug, Fairy and Pixie are enjoying theirRead More →

As summer is drawing to a close, my thoughts turn inward… not philosophically, but rather to the inside of my house. I don’t do spring cleaning, I do fall cleaning, and much of the change inside my house occurs in September and October, before the holidays. As I was wandering throughRead More →

This was first posted on April 27, 2009, on my now retired blog One Generation to Another. I hope you enjoy πŸ™‚ I love gardening. But who can blame me? Time began in a garden, at least biblically speaking. God did not plop Adam and Eve down in the desert.  NorRead More →

To all the men and women, that have given their lives for God and Country, our hearts and gratitude go out to you and your families. We will always hold dear your memory. In our own family, I would like to remember my Uncle Harry, lost in the Korean war,Read More →
