Hummingbird Moth...






I saw this Hummingbird Moth 
in my garden today.
I had a hard time getting a picture of it,  
it flew around so fast.
This is the moth that grows 
from a tomato horn worm.




I feel lucky to see this little beauty in my garden.  I'm sure they must help with pollination of crops,  they move around so much! Just thought I'd share!

Keep those wasps away...







This absolutely works!



It's a paper bag hung in an area where you don't want the little buggers!  It is filled with plastic grocery bags,  the top  is stapled together and a piece of twine is added for a hanger.  Here's how it works:

The wasps see it and think it's another nest and avoid the area.  So simple!

And a great solution.  I've been using these for 4 years now and have not had one single little nest anywhere on the deck roof.  Amazing!  So simple--so good!  

If you are bothered with wasps,  try this!  It really works!

Meet Jamie...







I have reverted to my childhood!
I saw this doll on the internet 
and I just had to have her!
Her name is Jamie!
She is part of a collection called
"Maru and Friends".
I love her and I think she is so beautiful.
She is 20" tall and the perfect size
 to make and design clothes for.
I will probably have to make my own 
patterns for the clothes.  
I have not found many patterns 
for clothes that will fit her.
Actually,  that's part of the fun for me!
I love doing this.
So,  let me show you more of her.


Jamie is well balanced
and stands on her own.

I love her beautiful jacket
and the cute T shirt underneath.

These boots are to die for!

I love her beautiful hair!

She will be warm this winter!

I love her eyes,  she even has eyelashes!
And if you look closely,
she even has some faint little freckles.
So precious!
I am in love!
She brightens my day
just by looking at her.

Let the fun begin!
I will keep you updated
on the progress of her wardrobe.
Do any of you out there
have some dolls that you play with,
or is it just me?

'Til next time,  Love ya,  Jean
