I like-#19 2019

This was my post for last week, but if
you go back and see, I had a much
more exciting post... it is...

I Like Nature and Art

A friend sent me these images of 
real leaves that an artist crocheted
together. Amazing!

I like different types of Art

Beautiful sand designs!

I like a nice Dinner in Nature

My Husband and I celebrated our
wedding anniversary at Taggart's.

It is a restaurant up a 
Canyon from us. Everything
is homemade and grilled.

You can eat inside or out on the
patio. There are peacocks
wandering...this is Princeton.

They have two dessert displays.
This one is the cakes and cheesecakes.
The other has cookies, brownies
and dessert bars.
So yummy!

I love...

our newest granddaughter, Miss O.
So sweet!

"I Like" community share posts at
hosted by LeeAnna!

I like my yard blooms

The iris are blooming like crazy!

With all the rain, our strawberry
patch is bursting with strawberries!

I like the Amish store

My husband loves deli meat and cheese

He especially loves hot cheese, which they sell.

I like the canned foods

I like trying new things

The Amish store has a mining area

You buy a bag of dirt, put the dirt in the 

then swish it in the running water.

We found all sorts of pretty stones.

I like my 100 days of Summer project

Each year, I do a 
100 day of Summer project
from Memorial to Labor day.

This year, the theme is "Try new things"

I have been collecting men's ties
and want to do a quilt project with them

       I found this image on Facebook.

I like Rainbows             

With all the rain, 
we were rewarded with 
a beautiful double reward

I Like #15-2019

I like the Spring Blooms             

Purple flowers blooming on the Ivy

Bush coming back from severe snow burn.
My Husband wanted to pull it out last
year, but I wanted to give it a little longer
to re-grow...and it did. of my favorite flowers,
These blooms are pass down bulbs 
from my Great-Great Grandmother.

I like a new knit project

I have been attempting to use up most of my
fiber storage..not buying more...but...
I could not resist this yarn
It is from Deborah at

Lastly, I like hand sewing

I have been battling some health problems
(that's why I did not post last week)
which makes it so I can't always
do everyday things, but
I can always hand sew.

These sheep are going to my
knit and crochet group friends.

I like 2019-#14

I like unusual buildings

I love architecture, but I really
enjoy unusual designed buildings

I like Spring flower bulbs

The daffodils are done, so next up,
are the tulips

I have folks ask all the time if the tulips
(pictured below) are black.

Nope...just very deep purple.

I like photos of the Earth

Last week I posted about a internet
site called Earth Porn...and how I disliked
the name of site....

This week, I found a different
site called Earth Photos.

Stunning photos of nature
with a nicer name.

I like car shows

My Husband is restoring a 
1956 Chevy Bel-Air
and is getting close to picking
the two tone outside color

I especially like this
pearl and grey combo.

I Like 2019-#13

I enjoy reading everyone's "I Like" posts at
Thanks for hosting us, LeeAnna.

I Like Spring blooms

The Daffodils are fading, but the tulips
are beginning to show their colors.

We have strawberries planted within our
flowerbeds. They are beginning to set
flowers too.

Nothing better than fresh berries 
for breakfast!

I like Nature photos

I like to travel, but do not always have 
the funds. I discovered a website called
Earth Porn (yeah, hate the name)
that posts photos of Nature.

I change my cover photo on Facebook
regularly using their photos.

I like  FutureLearn

FutureLearn is an online college
class site. You can take classes in
all different subjects...some of them free.

I am finishing a class about
England's King Richard III.
It has been interesting learning about
the way writing-printing came to be
and how class levels changed.

What do you like today?

I Like 2019-#12

I like....

I like the bursting of Spring!

We have been getting inches and inches of rain
and snow the last few weeks

I had put out our cement seagull decorations.

The ivy is swallowing one of them up!
The cat is still kind of spooked when she passes by...

I like solving a mystery.

I didn't do much to solve it, but rcently,
my DNA test at connected me
to the person who fathered my bio Mother.
She never knew him and I was given up
for adoption, so it is interesting to
have a three generation connection.

I like Instagram

I recently joined Instagram to
participate in the #the100dayproject.
Each person chooses a project to do for
100 days....some are art related...some are
personal based. I am doing 100 days of 
sewing for others

I have not been perfect on posting
each and every day, but I am enjoying
this project. I am cleaning out some
boxes of fabric and using up patterns.

I like my kids

I know this has been on my "I Like" list
before, but it is a good reason to repeat.

(family reunion about 10 years ago)

I have been going through some personal
challenges the last while, and my daughters
have been a great support to me.
I have been blessed with great kids!

I Like 2019-#11

I like that other "I Like" posters share

I have learned about great reads and podcasts.

One of my favorites is   

The characters are lovely, along with
their stories, all wrapped up in quilting.
It makes me want to research the
block patterns and recipes they reference.

I like a finished project

My Husband spent his Spring Break 
refinishing some furniture.

This is our new China Cabinet

When I was a teenager, it was my
bedroom dresser.

The second one is a dresser we found
at a thrift store for $10

It is now our family room storage
(movies, exercise equipment, toys)
I need to take a photo with the new
hardware on it...

I like when a plan comes together

I taught a class on variations of the
9-patch quilt block. 

I am not comfortable with teaching
at all....not my thing....but,
it seemed to go well.
