Friends and FFA (Faux Family Album)

This is my friend Jane's very wonderful page for our Alphabetica project. She made this page to go into Lynette's journal. I just love it!!!

and speaking of friendship....I am just totally blessed to have friends near and far.....ones I see in person and ones I only talk with on the internet!! Having this blog has so increased the number of people I communicate with on a really wonderful level! My new thrill in life is a new project I started called the Faux Family Album (FFA) for short....a bunch of us are going to create a faux family album with vintage photos that I have collected from antique shops. You know those photos that just "speak to you" and make you wonder what was the story of that person's life. We are each going to do a small layout with the vintage photo, stamps, rub-ons, etc. and then write a little story about each person in our album! Won't that be a blast! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

And to round things out I have a book recommendation...If you have not read this book yet, run to the bookstore and get this sweet and endearing story of a really loveable woman! It is billed as a mystery, but is really not.

The #1 Ladies Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

Thank you for posting this and thank you for the huge compliment. I imagine we would've looked something like this back in the day - showing off our gams LOL!!!

Out in my neck of the woods, FFA stands for Future Farmers of America and is a well attended club at the high school. I like your rendition much better! Thanks for asking me to play!

Thanks for you comments on my jewelry....your are so sweet! I agree....I have met people online that I have told things that I haven't told my best friends I see every day! Strange situation, but I love it! I am in touch with people that think like I do.....and that is hard to find in the other world:-D)

I forgot to tell you about the CD you bought.. wish you could understand the words of the songs.. of Sezen Aksu..
she is quite a philosopher.. and a strong woman.. againt life and relations..
I love her.. not just her music..the way she is as well..
I was 25 when she started her music life.. and she always opened a window at all my ages.. being 30.. 40.. now nearly 50.. it'sfunny how you can find yourself in another woman's life..
and I like Tarkan as well he is handsome.. and so attractive on the scene..
this is a nice patchwork of music you bought..
enjoy..
