We just returned from 5 days in Vegas.  This is the Lobby of the Palazzo Hotel.  It is so pretty.  Just love the waterfall!!  The flowers hanging from the ceiling are all hand painted.  So soothing!

I made this for little Aaron's birthday.  His mother used to summer at our park and has remained friends with Erin.  I thought the trucks were so boyish!

Tragedy in Boston!

My heart is broken with the tragedy that happened at the Boston Marathon!  Especially, the death of the 8 yr old boy!  He looked like such a sweet boy!  So sad and so senseless.
So to lightened the mood a little, I've posted my beautiful granddaughter with her dress that her mother made, of course!!  It's that gorgeous blue that I love because it brings out her blue eyes.  Also Alison did the embroidery on the front.  It's s called hardanger!!  It's quite complicated!  It makes me happy to look at her!

Piece of Metal from Fallen Towers in NY!

Yarmouth Police Dept. was the recipient of a chunk of metal from the Fallen Towers on 911 in NYC!! YPD had an open house two weeks ago to show the community.   People talked about it and then we could all take pictures and touch it.  By Sept 11, 2013 it will be in it's permanent place of honor at YPD under thick glass, so it was nice to be able to touch it before that happens.  It gave me such an odd feeling to touch it.  I hope when they have their dedication for it that they honor the Firemen too!!
