3I love to make these windchimes. Here are two of my wind chimes that hang on my back patio. This windchime is the larger one and has silver serving pieces: spatula, spoon, fork, a candle lopper and salad tongs.
4This is the smaller one. The base is made from an old silver candy dish and has a great collection of silver forks and spoons. So, gather up your old silverware and make a lovely keepsake for a friend. Enjoy!

13This lovely lady is my little Grandma from KY, and is my Dad's mother. She had a very positive influence over my life. She was very religious and very kind. She liked to cook.

17Here is me ! I loved sailors. I was a war baby, and there were lots of them around. If I saw one, I would start singing "Bell bottom trousers, coats of navy blue." It attracted a lot of sailors who would then gather around my mother and I. This did not please Dad.
18Phoebe is 3 years old and a black cockapoo. She has unique white eyebrows, and is a very comical dog. She loves to dance in the kitchen. She will go outside and bring Chantilly in if I ask her to.
19Chantilly is 15 years old and acts like a puppy. She is the queen, and doesn't let you forget it. She is a white cockapoo. We call them the Oreo kids. Dogs leave paw prints on our hearts. May I always be the kind of person my dogs think I am!
