View from the hotel
I caught a glimpse of my daughter and her husband
at the end of the show.
Visiting Ellis Island
I went back to work 10 days ago. I needed the routine. Right away I got a sinus infection and went to the doctor today. I have been well for several months, so this head cold threw me for a loop. Hopefully, I will feel better this weekend to go school shopping with my daughters and go to a birthday luncheon for a close friend.
I am getting busy, once again, with my cottage business,"Hand-me-down Threads". Here are some repurposed T-shirts that I made into scarves. I know, you're probably thinking, "Wow, she sure likes fringe!" And you would be right. How retro is that! The two bags are completely no-sew and were made from a Carnival Cruise T-shirt an the black one has the image of Tony Stewart, for you Nascar fans. And T-shirt will do, but I look for certain images and I like tie dyed T-shirts. You can wear he scarves with a plain T-shirt, black or white, to dress it up. My granddaughters may like them. Oh, and I didn't pay more than $1.00-$1.50 per T-shirt at the thrift store. I am a waiting list for a local consignment store to display my dresses and other clothing. Here are some of my dresses displayed on a recycled shutter.
While I was home with a sinus infection this weekend I browsed on the TV and discovered three new movies that I had never seen. The first one was called "The Seventh Cross" with Spencer Tracy and a young Hume Cronyn and his wife, Jessica Tandy. Made in 1944 and taking place in Germany, it was a very entertainig movie. I also watched "Magnificent Obsession" another good movie with Jane Wyman and Rock Hudson. Agnes Moorehead ( remember her in Bewitched) played in both movies. She was a really good actress. The third movie was "Love Actually" which had me laughing and crying at the same time. I can't believe that I had never seen this movie all the way through! I love Hugh Grant and Alan Rickman and Colin Firth and Emma Thompson, etc. Except for a few cheesy and adult scenes, the movie was a winner in my book. Loved the marriage proposal with Colin Firth.
No-sew T-Shirt bag, good for a sleepover
With remaining T-shirt, I cut them into strips and made
a braided necklace (hard to see here). I am going add something to it.
Tourist T-shirt from New Orleans
And if you made it to the end, here's a treat. "Edelweiss" was my mother's favorite song and I love this version by Andre Rieu, beautiful!
