Peeky Peeky Roof

I looked up at the front of my house and was upset to see the antique (100 year old) wood decoration was chipping, cracking, leaking, and weathering.


Someone had simply just kept putting more and more paint on until finally it cracked and chipped half off. I knew if I left it that way it would fall apart and the design just fall off.

We took it into the house and put it up on a couple of work horses. I examined it, got my scrapers, chisels, sandpaper, and went to work. I knew removing all those many years of paint was going to take a very long time. Sorry, I haven’t found the picture of the close up of the bad paint job.




There was paint down in cracks that needed an exacto knife to get out. Finally we took it outside and used paint remover on it and then gently washed it off and let it dry. That paint was so tough to get off.

After the exacto knife and sandpaper on all the cracks and crevasses I patched and caulked all the cracked places, gouged places, and sealed where the wood design met the flat wood base.


Then we sprayed it with four coats of a very tough exterior base primer in white to waterproof it totally front and back, and give brightness under the colors that were to come . . .

I just used acrylic craft paints on this.  But when the painting was finished, it was sprayed with two coats of a durable clear acrylic exterior coating.


This is on the house but not adjusted or nailed down yet. I had to carry that heavy thing up a ladder and nail it so it wouldn’t fall back down again. I only weigh 120 pounds soaking wet, so it was a really careful balanced climb so I wouldn’t break my neck.

Yoga Yowie Needs His Sleep


The Yoga Cat is trying to get some shut-eye tonite, and people keep waking him up.  He’s all camped out on his down comforter.  Well, at least he thinks it’s his . . .  Possibly he’s paranoid I’ll kick him off it.

What I put on Webstore last night #2

I put even more stuff on the last nite.  It’s slow posting things, but little by little I’m getting some on there.  Here’s some pictures:

Softballs, Antique Button Hook, Antique kindling holder, Coca Cola Hand Fan, Contact Lens containers, Dewalt Jig Saw, Bag of Golf Balls, Hay Nets, Leather padded hobbles, AND a Leather Walking Horse Saddle



Now you see why I can’t seem to categorize what all I’m doing most of the time (grin)  In other words, if I could sell all my junk then I’d have room for the couch and table.  Oh, and the hand made saddle rack is for sale too.  I just haven’t posted it yet.


What I put on Webstore today #1

I got my guff up enough to spend time posting things on my web store on, which is one of the places I’ll be posting things for sale.  The Jewelry you see here is vintage antique costume jewelry from the Early to Late 1900’s.  My mother in law collected quite a bit of it, and I inherited.  I can’t wear it all though, so maybe you’d like to.  (grin)  And BTW, my prices are about 1/2 what most people are charging.

New things to enjoy

Grey cat Inquiring Minds


I recently decided to start posting some of my photography on DeviantArt website. The reason being they were just sitting on a hard drive not making themselves useful at all. Here’s what I’ve posted there so far at DeviantArt at      Also on DeviantArt you can have them printed as all kinds of things such as:


Fine Art Prints – Fine Art Canvas Prints – Framed Fine Art Paper Prints – Framed Canvas Prints – Wrapped Canvas Prints – Photographic Prints – Greeting Cards – Mouse Pads – Ceramic Coffee Mugs – Coasters – Fridge Magnets – Postcards – Calendars

Photo dog statue with sunglasses          Photo poolside candles

Yowie Yoga Cat HiYa!Gee golly that sounded great. I knew my little printer wouldn’t keep up with all that, not to mention the time involved doing it myself. And I’m sure not set up to print on cups, magnets, coasters, and such.  I’ll have to explore a different place for T-Shirts.  They don’t do that there.  NOTE: I have only just started posting my photography, but next month will start posting my ART there too.  (possibly, see my post here on maybe why not)

So if you just want to see what all else I post on there, go on over to DeviantArt to MY page, and you can look through all of them

North American B25 Bomber

I had this postcard and decided to find more information about it.

North American B25 Bomber antique postcard

North American B25 Bomber antique postcard at

From Wikipedia article North American B-25 Mitchell

The B-25 was named in honor of General Billy Mitchell, a pioneer of U.S. military aviation.

The B-25 was a descendant of the earlier XB-21 (North American-39) project of the mid-1930s. Experience gained in developing that aircraft was eventually used by North American in designing the B-25 (called the NA-40 by the company).

The majority of B-25s in American service were used in the Pacific. They fought on Papua New Guinea, in Burma and in the island hopping campaign in the central Pacific.

In Burma, the B-25 was often used to attack Japanese communication links, especially bridges in central Burma. It also helped supply the besieged troops at Imphal in 1944.

In the Pacific, the B-25 proved itself to be a very capable anti-shipping weapon, sinking many ships.

The first B-25s arrived in Egypt just in time to take part in the Battle of El Alamein. From there the aircraft took part in the rest of the campaign in North Africa, the invasion of Sicily and the advance up Italy.

The U.S. Eighth Air Force, based in Britain, concentrated on long-range raids over Germany and occupied Europe. During World War Two the British RAF received nearly 900 Mitchells, using them to replace Douglas Bostons, Lockheed Venturas and Vickers Wellington bombers.

Although the B-25 was originally designed to bomb from medium altitudes in level flight, it was used frequently in the Southwest Pacific theatre on treetop-level strafing and missions with parachute-retarded fragmentation bombs against Japanese airfields in New Guinea and the Philippines

The B-25 first gained fame as the bomber used in the 18 April 1942 Doolittle Raid, in which 16 B-25Bs led by Lieutenant Colonel Jimmy Doolittle attacked mainland Japan, four months after the bombing of Pearl Harbor.

The Royal Air Force (RAF) was an early customer for the B-25 via Lend-Lease. The RAF was the only force to use the B-25 on raids against Europe from bases in the United Kingdom, as the USAAF used the Martin B-26 Marauder and Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress for this purpose instead.

The Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) was an important user of the B-25 Mitchell,

The Australians got Mitchells by the spring of 1944.

During World War II, the Mitchell served in fairly large numbers with the Air Force of the Dutch government-in-exile

The U.S. supplied 862 B-25 (of B, D, G, and J types) aircraft to the Soviet Union under lend-lease during the Second World War via the Alaska–Siberia ALSIB ferry route.

Well over 100 B-25Cs and Ds were supplied to the Nationalist Chinese during the Second World War. In addition, a total of 131 B-25Js were supplied to China under Lend-Lease.

During the war, the Força Aérea Brasileira (FAB) received a few B-25s under Lend-Lease.

At least 21 Mitchell IIIs were issued by the Royal Air Force to No 342 Squadron, which was made up primarily of Free French aircrews.

At 9:40 on Saturday, 28 July 1945, a USAAF B-25D crashed in thick fog into the north side of the Empire State Building between the 79th and 80th floors.

There are more than one hundred surviving North American B-25 Mitchells scattered over the world, mainly in the United States. Most of them are on static display in museums, but about 45 are still airworthy.

Antique Jewelry repurposed page 1

Antique pin gold leaf

One of my Antique pins

I have a lot of ANTIQUE jewelry that is between 50 to 170 years old. Rhinestone, metallic, Mother of Pearl, Earrings, pins, pins that double as necklaces, bracelets, and it is all very very old.  It was owned by a relative and she put it in a trunk where it remained for about 30 years until her passing.  There was so much of it that no normal person could wear all of it unless they wore a piece each day for years.  Additionally, I also inherited antique buttons, military emblems and awards, and medallions of all kinds.

So I aked myself “Hey, you, if you wanted a nice piece of jewelry for yourself, what would you do with it?”  And me said that I’d just make something out of it.  So here I post for you some of the jewelry I made out of my antique parts.  I would wear them myself, but I don’t have ten or twenty bodies to wear it on.  It’s all very dressy and for sale.

I’ve also got many broken necklaces that are antique beads that someone strung on simple sewing thread, which rots in 75-100 years.  So if you bead a lot contact me for pictures of my beads. I might have some you’d like.  If you have a question as to the history of some of them just ask and I’ll post an article on it.

I also have superb unbroken antique jewelry all over the place, but I will be posting that elsewhere, probably on my website at

NOTE ON SHIPPING:  Currently I do not sell outside the United States, so shipping is for the U.S. only right now.  Later on I may change this, but for now that’s the deal.  If you wish to buy more than one item I can ship several small items for the same shipping price.  Over a certain weight or size the package size goes up and so does the shipping.
