Treasures from Main Street

Main Street Memories is a blog where I spend a fair amount of time. Colleen writes with such wit and lightness that one can't help a grin or, more often, a guffaw. Recently, Colleen and her sisters lost a bright light in their lives...their only brother. This has left them feeling sad and a bit lost, though it has not diminished Colleen's spirit or zest for life. One just knows that things are hopping and happening wherever she is. You'll meet Mr. B and all the family and you'll be enriched for it.

Thanks, Colleen, for the sweet treasures. I love them! They usually live in my craft room where they serve as inspiration. You know that I went right out and bought washers the minute that I learned you were up to something with washers (can't you just imagine folks wondering if we need some dryers, too?) Now I see that I need more Scrabble tiles and some dominoes. And, I'm going to take just the right photo and use my "V" necklace for my profile picture one day soon...as soon as the sun comes out again.

Happy Tuesday, everyone, stay happy and toasty.

I love this profile picture and will come back to it again someday, especially now that I have it tucked in this safe place.


  1. Ohhhhhhhh, a "V" necklace coming!!! I can't wait to see it!

    Washers... How about some nuts and bolts too? >,-)

    -Hehhhh- You can't fool me into thinking that means real big washing machines. Living with a "Jack of All Trades" for 51 years, I know what a washer is, when I hear of one. -gigggles-

    Mmmmm... please don't wait till the sun comes out again, to work on your necklace though... Eeeek!

    I said we missed snow, yesterday. But we're getting it today. But that's ok. My real desire is for bad weather in MA, NOT TO CURTAIL the getting out the VOTE! On one side, that is!!!!

    Oh I'll be on pins/and/needles all day, about this election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Fun and pretty things you received from Colleen. I look forward to seeing you in your "V" necklace.
    I am off to pay a visit to Colleen.
    Enjoy your day.

  3. You find such interesting blogs Vee! Colleen's baby spoon post had me laughing so much!

    I'm "in" on the washer trick ...I've seen it transformed on many blogs into a beautiful piece of jewelry. I can't wait to see what you make!
