This is a photo I took of a replica dogtag with the inscription for 1st Lt. Ronny Louis Woodmansee of Austin, Texas.

Killed in Action during Vietnam War on December 12, 1963.

Photo taken on 29 March 2014–dogtag displayed at the State Capitol rotunda during the dedication of the Texas Vietnam Veterans Memorial Monument in Austin, Texas.Woodmansee

Lt. Woodmansee’s son (Ron) is a friend of mine and he and his family were unable to attend the dedication ceremony.


This is an adorable idea to redo some boots you may have.

Great idea to re-do some boots you may have.  Find two cute belts at a thrift store and cut them long enough to fit top of boot.  Find some fabric you like, leather/suede fringe and lace at a fabric store.  Hot glue fabric first, glue lace and then fringe and then add the belts.  These are just adorable and would look great not only now but in the Fall season with leggings!!


Chimes made from odds and ends…

Idea using antique bed springs…

This blog will be a little of this and that of sayings I have collected; craft ideas; unique ideas from recycled things I have found.
