Do I Have a Sickness or What?

Most folks would see a little piece of a dingy old towel that was used to clean up the paint brushes after we finished painting Mom's lawn chairs last week.They would pitch it in the trash so quick,it would make your head swim,but,Oh,no,not me. I'm not throwing that away. I can just see it now. A big fat juicy slice of an ice cold watermelon.

What's wrong with me? Do other folks have this problem or am I the only one? Of all the supplies I have filling up every nook and cranny of my home and the surrounding out buildings, why do I feel I MUST use that paint covered little fragment of a dingy old towel to make a banner or a wall hanging?

I'm making a little progress on my Watermelon sign. I only hope to get it done in time to hang it over the picnic table on the porch of Pop's pouting room.That's where we gather to eat ice cold watermelon,straight from his garden, that's been cooled in his fridge.He is the care taker of the melons. He loves growing watermelon and cantaloupe each year.


  1. I like it Sue.
    Sounds like Pops has things well in hand.

  2. Very cute Sue, we also have watermelon and cantaloupe in the garden, hope the deers don't get into them.

  3. Love how your watermelon hanging is looking Sue - just too cute!! And boy do I know what you mean about keeping those bits of things that others see as worthless, but that you see as brimming with potential...yes, I know JUST what you mean!

    And many thanks my dear friend, from the bottom of my heart, for your sweet, touching words of encouragement you left me recently on my studio post - you overwhelm me with kindness - thank you!

    Keep on creating and dreaming and sharing sunshine - you are a blessing!!

    Hugs & Blessings,
