Hi! My name is Mary Thompson and this is my very first time to "blog"!! I'm not sure of all the ins and out of this, but it does look like fun. I am a 60 year old woman that has spent most of my life crafting. I love to sew, crazy quilt, bead, design - all of it. I love the cottage chic, victorian romantic look and "things". I sell some on EBAY and ETSY. I also have my own web site: rosecottagetreasures.com . I just started the site in June and I have been sewing this summer like a mad woman trying to get lots of "pretties" ready for the fall and the holiday season.
I love to look at all of the pretty blogs on the web. I have found one- Mind Wide Open that is right up my alley. I also love to read Belle Armoire magazine for inspiration. I have just recently discovered altered art and mix media etc. I had been dabbling in it for years and just didn't know where to connect.
I don't have any good pictures of myself. I wish I was as pretty as the redhead I chose to use. I do have red hair only now it is getting a lot of white and blond in it. Isn't that something that you have to wait 60 years to become a blond naturally!! Life is always full of suprises.
I have 5 cats. Two very young kittens and 3 adults. Silver is my only adult female. She is pretty wild. She is a shaggy gray cat, not very big but she rules the roost. Sweetheart is a 2 year old male. When I named him I didn't know he was a "him". My cats are outdoor fairly wild cats. They come up to the deck for meals, I have 2 dog houses on the deck that they sleep in when the weather is cold, ( I live in central Alabama) . I have worked really hard with these 2 kittens trying to 'socialize' them. Sometimes they will let me pick them up, but they are very skittish. When I am sitting on the deck they will play with my toes. That is something new. There is hope. Well, i am going to sign off now, the 'brats' are making a fuss (my cats) for their supper. I will try to post some pictures of some of the items I have sold on ebay and around town here next time. Love, Mary
