Ta Daa... Finished My Pink Scarf Project

I'm so happy to finally have finished my "Pink Scarf" for the Pink Scarf Project hosted by   Vicki of 2 Bags Full   to support woman with breast cancer and breast cancer survivors. This has been a year long project that Vicki has hosted and I signed up in the beginning and have had until this September to finish it. I'm not the fastest knitter or crocheter but I aim to get the job done. Now all I need to do is find a pretty box to place it in and write a note or card for the recipient and it will be in the mail to Vicki who will handle distributing them. I made this scarf dedicated to the Memory of my life long Best friend of 25 years,  "Kathryn Fay Murray" who lost her fight to cancer at the young age of 55  in 1999.  So for you my Angel friend, may you be smiling down from the Heavens as you remain in my heart forever...... miss you still
Fay has a Granddaughter that she never was able to see that is now about 10 years old. That is her baby pic and her namesake "Phoebe Fay" born years later on  what would have been Fay's birthday, how ironic to have a first Grandchild,  a  baby girl born on her Grandmother's birthday.......

Prayers for Oklahoma

I had planned a few blog post for early this week but after the devastation that has occurred in Oklahoma I have decided instead on just sending much needed prayers for all those affected. Our thoughts are with you at this time. May your hearts be healed as you put your lives back together.

Fun Find Vintage Steamer Trunk

Wow I'm finally well and able to blog a bit as the last 2 weeks have been rough with having the flu go through our household. I see I'm missing a few bloggers but that happens when life gets in the way and you can't keep up, just can't win them all and the tried and trues are always here, what I call real cyber friends!
Today I'm linking up with my latest find to Etsy Vintage Style Blog Party even though I'm a day late.
I found this wonderful steamer trunk in beautiful condition at a yard sale about a month or more ago and finally had a chance to take a pic. Now I know many would shabby paint it all up but I 'm keeping it in its original condition especially since I had use for it right away. Yep the drawers are full already and it stands behind my couch in the family room I did have to do a bit of re-arranging of misc furniture but it all worked out. The best part is the is beautiful steamer trunk came complete with all the wooden hangers which are put away for safe keeping and was a mere $40 which is a real deal if you like this sort of thing. I would love to put a few shelves  or at least one of the left side but haven't figured that part out yet.
