Bet you didn't know I was a Family Leader of Tomorrow! Ha! Back in the dark ages Betty Crocker gave out an award to one senior girl each year....yeah, that was me! Ha! The senior girls in Home Ec I suppose took a written test..the highest score got the award. At that time all the girls took that class, so imagine my surprise (and probably the teacher's surprise) when I won! My Aunt won from her class too so we always joke with each other about being a FLOT! Ha! anyway, I found this when I went through that jewelry box this week.....Here is the front of it...
and the back...Betty Crocker Family Leader of Tomorrow.It is corroded....Probably from being stored in the dungeon for years...oh...and since I have had it since 1974! Ha!

I went through a jewelry box from when I was a kid yesterday....It has been in the dungeon.....the smiley face pendant is painted metal..the two white horses are metal pins..Not sure on the Methodist 50? Two little wooden animals..etc....
Inside the jewelry box was another box...ahh...misc items!
Two and a half pairs of earrings
These have Japan stamped on them
Various necklaces...and one bracelet
well....blurry picture, but it is my Future Homemakers of America pin (FHA)
Oh yes, I was big into 4-H!
Three charm bracelets....the bottom one was mine...not sure where the other two came from.
Various necklaces, pendants, etc. apparently hearts with pearls were big then....
Various coins, bracelets, a couple watches....
awesome rings! ha! the one made out of a nail may have came from Silver Dollar City..
Various buttons....like the Kellogg rooster....and the advanced swimmer!
This is how Jack spent the snowy morning...smart cat!

I did this puzzle this morning while it was snowing.....had not done it in years and some of the pieces were not all apart yet, so cheating, but made it go faster!

I finished the patriotic cookies just now....only made six of them, instead of the eight I had done for the other "categories"

I finished what I am calling the birthday cookies this morning...Not really for her birthday, but I wanted to make some out of some fun colors...
One of my favorites...

I finished some more felt cookies for Emily this afternoon...eight Easter cookies and two for St. Pat's Day. Not perfect for sure, but she won't mind that! Funny story on the butterflies for the Easter cookies....I only had six butterfly beads so I rationed them out.....Later I found a whole container of them in the dungeon! Maybe I will make more later, or use them on something else.

Last week I washed and line-dried some sheets that I have had stored since our girls were little....Time now to pass them on to Emily!
Hope she can get some use out of some of them.....I had already passed on to them the Winnie the Pooh ones and the 101 Dalmation ones when Tyler was two..
I was doing some sewing the other day and noticed the price tag on this package of needles...barely over a dollar sounded like a good price for 50 needles.....Not sure how they are priced currently.I need to look that up!

We went to Maramec Springs Monday...such a pretty day! Here is the dam that was damaged by the flooding in late December...
Sock Monkey gazing out at the Spring...
Some big trout in the Spring area..
We stopped to buy some fish food and saw this arrowhead in the concrete by the feeder thing...Never have noticed that before....pretty neat!
The level of the Spring is down....something about them pumping water out of it to put somewhere else due to the flood damage.
Find the monkey!
Monkey had fun feeding the fish too! He didn't even knock over his cup of food!
cool old building....something to do with electricity
So many fish in these areas!
Sock Monkey was amazed!
Taking a break...
Large tree split by lightning
it is a very interesting place!
looks like an albino fish?
