Blog: Janet's Jolly Junk

I love to collect junk. I have an eye for junk & can figure out right away when I see junk what I'm going to use it for. If it's fabic I start thinking of doll clothes or stuffed toys or one year I made Christmas rag wreaths & kissing balls all from donated junk fabric. We sold them at our church Holiday fair. I love to collect pottery pieces & plates decoritive jars almost anyhting & I silicone glue them together to make Garden Art. I've been known to raid people's trash for funiture & other goodies...Oh, it's addicting so I guess I'm a junk-a-holic.

Hudson River walkway
Friday, October 22, 2010

The best things happen when you don't expext them.....we took a walk on the Hudson River walkway bridge. It crosses the Hudson River & is the longest pedestrian bridge in the world. It goes from Highland NY  to Poughkeepsie NY. it was a beautiful sight to see the boats & tugs chugging along the river with the lovely trees many with changing leaves in the background. You could see the Tappanzee bridge in the distance....just a beautiful sight. We made it half way across & were proud of ourselves.  We knew we weren't going to go the whole distance since we would have to come back again......the bridge used to be a railroad bridge & was active during WW2 transporting troops & cargo to the east coast. Now it's a volunteer project supported strictly by donated funds. It was one of the best decisions we made to take the ride to the river & walk the's free of charge but they accept donations. We also enjoyed the ride home too. Some of those little towns are lovely...with the old houses all decorated for fall with their pots of mums, corn stalks, & pumpkins. We rode through the college town of New about a quaint town.....& a bustling one too especially on the week end.....anyway, I would highly recommend a trip up to the Hudson River walkway especially this time of year..

About Me:

I've always liked to do things with my hands. I knit, sew, embroider, draw, craft, & a lot of other things. I'm slowing down a bit now but still keep active an attend a weekly craft-sewing-knitting club & am always looking for ideas. My biggest regret is that young people don't seem to be interested in learning to knit, sew, etc. I hope it all doesen't become a lost art. I did a sewing session making yo-yo circles with a group of teen girls & they loved it...picking out thier fabrics etc. There is great satisfaction in creativity.
