Elvis and his biggest Fan

My Cousin Angela
is a Gigantic 
Elvis Presley fan....

She lost count on how many times
she saw Elvis in her life...

Each year she went to Las Vegas with her
Dad & went  Every Day,  Every Show


She is even in a Movie of Elvis
which the name of the film I can't remember,
but he kisses her and a friend that was with her 
on stage (in the movie)

The Stories she has,  the wonderful photos
&
Priceless Memories


Last weekend was her 
60th Birthday,   

She & 2 of our friends took
a long weekend trip 
to Memphis Tenn.
to 
Graceland

Can you believe she had never yet been to
Graceland.....

I was suppose to go with them,  but last minute
changes prevented me from going

Anyway,

I thought the best thing to give her for her
Special Birthday
was 
her 
Hero

Elvis Bearsley....


I wish I had the pictures of her
when she was opening her gift 
on Friday night at Red Robins for Dinner

I think she cried





I was quite pleased with the way he
came out,  I was really amazed at 
creating his Elvis Hair 
from a  little square of an
old furry hat....

Downton Abbey Dog Replica)

I had a very busy week of Stitching

Downton Abbey Inspired

Am I the last one to jump on
the 
Downton Abbey
train....

 I did a marathon Downton Abbey
of Seasons 2-4 
with my movie friends
(still need to see the 1st season)

I Fell in love with the little dog that 
Mary gives to Matthew for
Good Luck
when he goes off to War
I had to make one & now have to 
make them for all the Movie Girls


Hope spring is Springing 
in your town....

Gloomy & Gray
with a mist 
but at least it is in the 
high 40's

A little thrift shopping treasure


 besides doing a wee bit of treasure hunting at the
local thrift stores,  I was able to stitch together these
2 little critters....

See the miniature doll cupboard,  
perfect for photo props

I found it at the local Salvation Army Store
for $4
it was a light colored wood,  but I took
it home, sanded, white washed & had a 
bit of creative fun with my new watercolor pencils....
then I added a coat of johnson's paste wax

I Love It

Now I am off to my cousins for a
wonderful
Corned Beef & Cabbage
Feast

Happy Green to All
