Welcome to my blog!

I used to blog here mostly using local photos about my neighborhood or Washington DC or other places I visited. But I took a break from the blog for a few months and then found myself posting about crafts and sewing projects I have done or are doing. These involve fabric recycling or re-use and refashioning of clothes, or other frugalities. I've left up the previous blogs and may occasionally revert to those topics again. May your days be blessed with miracles, surprises and creativity too!

Lovely Details in Warner Theater, Washington DC

We saw some entertainment recently at the old Warner Theater in Washington, D.C. recently. While this entertainment was terrific -- it was the Fab Four who play a tribute to The Beatles -- it was some of the decorative details in the theater that captivated my attention even more. From brass lamps, ornate ceilings, medallions on seat backs, gilded walls and staircases and gleaming chandeliers it was like being back in time.
