    I first posted here in Nov. of 2001 after lurking for several months. I was a regular and prolific poster for many years before I dropped off for the most part as my husband had Alzheimer’s. So…with so many new folks who are now the regular posters..I just thought it would be polite to say hello and re-introduce myself as I will be here more often now. :)

    My name is Cindy,I’m 61yo, and I was born/raised on the Texas gulf coast,but now living in San Antonio. I was widowed in 2012 after 20 years of marriage to my bestest friend. Between us we have 8 children aged 69 to 34, 8 grands aged 31 to 13, and now 1 great granddaughter aged 1.  I collect willow ware, in all it’s myriad forms and colors, dragons,bird ‘stuff’, and friends,not necessarily in that order. I love reading,photography,feeding my backyard piggies,aka birds and squirrels, and cooking. To my long time friends here, thanks for not giving up on me, and to those with whom I hope to become friends…Greetings!

    I remember you!   Missed you when you quit posting!   I’m glad you are back!

     

    That is quite a collection of willow ware!   How in the world do you keep the pieces dusted that aren’t in cupboards?   Very pretty!

     

    Now—are you the lady who participated in Renaissance Festivals and made her own costumes?   I remember seeing pics of someone who did that.  Maybe it was a different lady from Texas.   If it was you, do you still do it?

    oldgirl, the Texas lady you’re remembering is Starshine. She lives over close to Galveston and did the costumes. This year she was injured and didn’t get to participate in RenFaire for the first time in years. She’s a very talented seamstress.

    I do remember you, Cindy.  I started in 2003 here as Mamapet.  Then had to change board name when new computer and it wouldn’t accept old name any longer.  Hope you are doing okay now.  I remember when you DH was ill, too.
