Bring on the duster

I've been riding my vacuum like a banshee and swinging my duster with the wind!  I do my 'spring' cleaning right now.  There's no waiting around for me because when spring does arrive, I have better things to do outside.  This year I am decluttering my surfaces and pulling out my tarnished silver and white or creamy stuff.  I just can't resist unique serving pieces when I see them and I gathered a few in a cut glass cream pitcher.

I've been prepping canvases for a project idea that has been tumbling around in my head for a while.  Quit laughing now....I know you are thinking.."How did I find it then!"  Well I did and I'll be using a few of these pics perhaps....

This is a shot of my great grandparents.  This is kinda deceiving because Granny barely came to Grandad's shoulder, if even that tall!  He was over 6 feet tall.  It's clear where the height factor entered our family gene's.  Apparently both pics by the same slightly askew photographer.
Grandad in a parade or rounding up a posse?

My Granny loved her hats and doesn't she look sassy with this one!

I will try really hard to take pics of this little project and share soon.

I also noticed that I am nearing my 100th post!  OMG!!  Hmmm, I've never had a giveaway and I am baffled at what gifts to bestow on my blog friends.  I wanna make it a good one for ya.  I'll work on that one and get a giveaway post done very soon.
Thanks for being patient when I don't blog for weeks on end.  I actually resolve to be more consistent at blog posts among many other things.

Well, I've been looking at my vacuum cleaner for two days. LOL, I was side tracked by football games and blogs. Congrats on your 100th post!
