Alabama Plays in Savannah Georgia 2021 – Melody Mix

Melody video mix of Alabama songs – Tennessee River, The Closer You Get, Dixieland Delight, and If You’re Gonna Play in Texas.  Alabama is the band that I worn out a few cassette tapes in my teenage years, and yes I do still have their first 5 LP’s and more, and one duplicate still with the plastic wrap on it. And yes, all the LP’s have the original southern, confederate, rebel flags on them (insert eye roll). This concert had special meaning to us because while I have seen them numerous times in the 80’s, however Brandi has never seen them. We actually had tickets for the last 5 years and for some reason or another it got cancelled or postponed. The tickets we used to finally see them this time in 2021 in our favorite city of Savannah had a purchase date of 2018! Well worth the wait, enjoy our experience.

Christmas in Dixie – Alabama – Savannah, Georgia – 2021

We waited 5 years to see Alabama between their various cancellations and postponements. We hoped that seeing them now in December we could be treated to this special song, live. What a memorable treat to catch!

See Something, Say Something

This is what I saw today.

4 of them standing a good distance apart, all looking ready to go into surgery. Not one of them talking to one another. Heads buried deep into $600 phones getting last minute updates of their vigorous day ahead.

They weren’t doctors, it was our nations kids being indoctrinated waiting for a school bus.

Is there any wonder why our country is the way it is? 

This is sad.

Christmas in July

Happy Christmas in July – Today, I have this adorable kitschy retro santa that I finished up just in the knick of time. 🎅🏻 🎄 🥰  Now, off to watch Tom & Jerry with hubby 📺 😺🐭

Vintage Pin Cushions

Vintage planters turned into cute pin cushions.  These cuties came from my father-in-laws estate. Not sure why he had them and if he ever used them for anything, but when my husband saw them, he knew I’d surely make them into something for my sewing room/studio.  Inspired by Lori Holt, check out her tutorial on how to make pin cushions from vintage finds. 🥰

Another July 2021 Finish

Snuck in another 4th of July finish – just in the knick of time as we enter the last week of July.  Fourth of July Sampler by The Humble Sitcher 🥰.  Such a cute piece – I’ll be giving it a quick dip into a cozy tea-bath and fashioning it into a pillow tuck 💕 ✂️ ☺️.

Hope you carve out some hobby time in your world – creativity is a health attribute, let’s harness it!
