I'm going to try to start getting active on my long lost Blog, My sister Sheila & I started an Etsy Shop called GRADY LADIES a few months ago. Today we finally hit 100 listings. Come take a peek:

Second hand finds.

A pretty little Limoges cup & saucer for $7.00

 Three tiny oil paintings, just 2-inches square. $3.00 for the set.
And a hand painted wooden bowl for $3.50. It was a good day

My problem with symmetry

If only the human face was just one sided it would be so much easier. Here's the face I'm working on with the left side(as you face it) roughed in to my liking. Now the task is to get the other side to match. Easier said then done.

Here I have photo shopped the face perfectly symmetrical, the goal. Now back to work.

Easter Sunday

A grand feast was served!

A visit to the Pine Grove Cemetery, Manchester, NH

On one of our Friday outings with my Mother we took a drive through the beautiful Pine Grove Cemetery.

The beautiful window inside the Hill Mausoleum. This is one of my favorites.

Jim snagged some hydrangeas.

The stolen beauties.

Hellos & Goodbyes

My 96 year old Mother gets a visit from her 91 year old brother who she hasn't seen in over a year.

This picture say's it all, goodbyes are hard.

My Eight O' Clock entry

This is the entry photo and the poem I submitted.

"Shaky Acres"

Times are tough, the house is rough.
The market's crashed with all our cash.
Walked in the door, fell through the floor.
Sheets are worn, blankets torn.
I look around, all's falling down.
I'm getting weary, a trifle teary.
So I put up my feet for a mini retreat.
It's time to rest with a cup of the best!
