My Marilyn in a Potato Sack Post got me thinking about I adore feed cloth. It's beautiful and usable. Our industrious ancestors used this cloth not only to fold the life giving flour, but for a multitude of cloth articles in the home including towels, rags, clothing, toys, blankets, aprons, and a multitude of other amazing things.

11 years ago today I married the love of my life. While life has definitely thrown us some difficult challenges, I never thought I would find someone so wonderful, the perfect one for me. We don't exchange what are traditional presents, we usually get each other something fun. So for my hubby, some racing DVDs and a couple of fun books.

Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller by taken by Sam Shaw in 1957. Monroe and Miller were married from 1956 to 1961. Here are some gorgeous pictures of "The Egghead and the Hourglass". Contrary to cultural belief, she was quite well read. You may check out what books were in her library at LibraryThing.

I love Independence Day! For as long as I can remember, I have loved history, so celebrating historical events is right up my alley. I love America, I just wish I could do something to help her restore herself. Everyone has traditions and celebrations associated with this day.
