Our Xi Iota Sigma chapter of Beta Sigma Phi enjoyed showing our umbrellas after a very informative and entertaining program about the origin and uses of umbrellas thru the years by Carol Russell (2nd roll end on right)

We also toured the church/community pantry to see where the food items we brought as a charitable project were stored.

In honor of the opening day for our Champion  Royals K.C., Mo Baseball team  I hung out the blue flags

As much wind as we have been having I'm surprised they are still up!

My 99 cent April Fools Special from Missouri Star Quilt Co.  Kaffe Fassett no less!

Such a pretty collection!

Played in one of my Altered Books

 Pressed Violas  and glued them in on painted paper towels
Close up showing my misspelled "Pansy's"

Glued on painted Typewriting paper

Dried Violet's and picture from magazine

"It's raining violet's" I used a lot of old ribbon as book markers too!

79 years ago! Unreal!

Mother & Daddy had lost a set of twins stillborn before me, so I can only imagine their happiness finally with a new baby!

5 years apart!

Cute illustrations in the book!

Duplicate jumped in!

I have saved calling cards for years! Make notes on them of what I bought there or when we stayed there and etc!  Great fun to look back and  reminisce!

My collection has come in handy more than once over the years too!

Showin off my new bling necklace!

Maurice and I happened to be coordinately  dressed Sunday so got a picture!

I'm on a hunt for another section of weathered fencing like this: 4 ft tall 6 or 7ft long  pointed  4"stakes May need to take a road trip! That sounds fun!  You might enjooy my other blog also: www.preciouscottage.blogspot.com
