But my friend Candie a.k.a. "Mrs. Major" in the play, is keeping me sane. She is my partner in crime. We have been fabric shopping, web surfing ideas, drawing, and sewing. She has been a great help when it comes down to embellishing the costumes. I could not do this without her.

Canada. So worth the time and hours spent on them.
Sigh! One huge sword order finished, but alas there is always one following right behind! I was heading to bed this early morning or (late night) and I saw this in my dining room. Forever boxes, oodles and oodles of swords, and a very tired, hard working husband.
Happy BirthDay America the Beautiful!

The coolest artist was a doll maker. She hand makes these dolls. I really wanted one. Each doll had their own individual look and story. We spent some time talking to her, she was just as cool as her creations. Her business is called The Doll Makers.com. Check them out!
Throughout the gardens are incredible sculptures. This one is one of my favorites. However, this photo does not give it justice. It is very three dimensional and enormous. Plus I think it is time to update our camera, it is not acting right. Or maybe just maybe it is the operator!
This cabin once belonged to the famous Toledo settler and War of 1812 scout Peter Navarre. He was the brother to my 5th Great-grandfather, Antoine Navarre. I wish these walls
Our garden is producing! Lavinia will not let a strawberry go unoticed. As soon as she sees one it is off the plant and in her mouth! However she is not the only one who is enjoying the garden. Our dog Lily has noticed the strawberries and manages to snag a few too. So much for a "bumper crop" of berries!
