Glass Teacups

I admired Martha's jewelry
with tea cups so I decided to try
matching up some of my creations
Martha does a much better job

these teacups
came in the thrift store
when I manged it
for the theater

I thought this blue was so pretty

I've thought abt making candle holders out of them
but I'm still up in the air abt it

House Tippin'

I love to walk around neighborhoods 

and look at the old architecture
there is such craftmanship

Main St

Dow St

The following house is for sale $148k

If you're looking for a home
 with character and options, look no further.
 Being built in the 1800s, this home is a fortress. 
So many wonderful features which are true to this
 era of a home to include the original ornate woodwork, 
grand oak staircase, many transoms
, wrap around porch, beveled glass doors, 
and some stained glass windows, and the list goes on.
 This property has an efficiency apartment
 with its own galley kitchen and own entrance,
 so you can have a tenant to help 
with your mortgage payment OR open the apartment
 up to have more square footage for your own family.
 An approx. 2000 square foot carriage house 
with a 3 bay garage for off street parking is included.
 This property is amazing and is a must see.
 It needs work, however, recent improvements
 include gutters, downspouts, roof, sheeting,
 water heater, newer boiler, and Gilkey windows
 (all but 4) 2 Blocks from downtown Tipp City,

so everything else all together
was 3.50

I found the sizing 
on the back of the pattern

Size 12
Bust 30 in
waist 25
hips 33
