What Your Handwriting  Says About You

You are a fairly energetic person. You know how to pace yourself, and you deal well with stress.You are very extroverted and outgoing. You are loving, friendly, and supportive. However, you are also manipulative and controlling at times.You are balanced and grounded. You know how to get along well with others.You need a bit of space in your life, but you’re not a recluse. You expect people to give you a small amount of privacy, and you respect their privacy as well.

You are somewhat traditional, but you are also open to change. You listen to your head and your heart.

You are a decent communicator. You eventually get your point across, but sometimes you leave things a bit ambiguous.

Show & Tell Friday – Dr. G’s Pram   22 comments

For Show & Tell Friday, I would like to share my father-in-law’s pram from the 1930’s.  My mother-in-law took it apart, cleaned it up and put it all back together again.  She has some great antiques with lots of family history.  She has a knack for restoring items and I will have to get more pictures of some of her pieces.

Yes, that is a picture of Dr. G as a little guy!  (Too Cute!) The pram was first used for his older sister and then for Dr. G.  I love that they still have it and boy is it in great condition!

WFMW – Clean Erasers   7 comments

New use for an Emery Board: Revive a Gunky Eraser


I like using pencils, but sometimes my erasers can get pretty yucky and dried out.  Has this every happened to you?  You go to erase something with a dried out eraser and all you get is big dirty smudge!  So much for erasing a mistake, you just created a bigger one!  Well, I was reading my Real Simple Solutions book and they have a solution that I would like to share with you:

Lightly rub your eraser over an emery board.  The board’s fine grain will shave off the eraser’s top layer, leaving you with a smudge-free eraser that you don’t have to throw away. 

Works for Me!  Head on over to Rocks in My Dryer for more WFMW ideas!

Show & Tell Friday – Special Linens   20 comments

For Show & Tell Friday this week, I would like to share some of the items in my linen closet.  There are some embroidered tea towels, tablecloths and hand towels.  I also have an appliqued tablecloth that has such beautiful detail, I almost don’t want to use it!  I love detail work and I am always looking for unique pieces to add to the collection.  Displaying them in different ways around the house is always a treat as well.  Some of the items are very special because my grandmother embroidered them for me.
