Tree Talk

In case anyone is curious what the twig planted outside the house might look like if it survives the winter...It can grow to more than 60 feet tall!And lots of tiny leaves to make my neighbors crazy.
Small blooms and one of the last trees to start up in the spring.

Now the neighbors can't watch us sleep.

Back on Thanksgiving my mom gave me a load of my great-grandmother's handmade linen shades. They were originally made to be on a roller but 2 of them fit the back doors perfectly--so I attached ribbon to the top to hang them...Back in the day when they knew how to really do things....all by hand. Sheesh.
Puts my sewing to shame....

One the 10th day of Christmas

The City Gave to Me... (C'mon everyone sing along!)
A Coooooffeeeeee Espressooooo Tree.

Yeah, that's what it's called.
I didn't make that up.
