Welcome to John & Nancy's Website


This is a fun place for us to share our hobbies and projects.


The Sewing Table is where Nancy creates clothing for our grandchildren, and doll dresses for their American Girl Dolls.

Natalie's bed was a creation by Grandpa.

The Doll Dresses album is a small sample of the American Girl doll dresses Nancy has created.

Emily and Garrett's Playhouse was built in mid-May, 2008.  Built to fit into a corner of the yard, all of the corners of this playhouse meet at 45 degree angles.

Christmas 2008 - John built a cooking center for Emily and Garrett's playhouse, and a doll clothes closet for Natalie.

In January 2012, we had our backyard re-landscaped. Progress and completion photos are here.

In September, 2013, we bought a condo at our favorite mountain lake.  Here's the Condo site link -- the site is a work in progress. 


We traveled to Japan in May of 2005 to visit with our friends.  We've posted a few photos from that trip.

We visited the Scottish highlands in September of 2006.  Here are a few photos from that trip.

We spent 3 1/2 weeks in New Zealand in early 2008.  Photos from that trip will be posted shortly (well, it's 2010 and they are still not posted - sorry)

We chased the Fall Colors in New Hampshire and Vermont between October 6-20, 2009.  Photos are posted here.
