Good Sunday morning Folks ~ I do hope you’ve been having a lovely weekend so far and hope that the coming week is a good one for you.
I’m now into taking sunrise photos as I remember to do so, don’t always remember until it’s too late. These three are taken inside our screened room off the back of our cottage. Our hot tub, claw foot tub and outdoor shower are here and Miss Tork hangs out in here too. Screened areas at your entry ways keeps mosquitoes out of your homes. Anyway, DH made this whole aluminum framework from pieces we had scavenged curbside. He drew up the plans in one of his computer programs and went to work. I’ll have to show that at a later date, now that I think about it. We had three of the domed glasses, one is used in the top of this screened room, the other two are in two workshop windows. Oh yea, we used curbside found screening too, so it does have some wrinkles in it. Part of living frugally, resourcefully and creatively.
You can see the top of the clawfoot tub, and the 5 paned window of the scullery.

When I got home from work yesterday there was a pkg. all the way from Australia from a wonderful needle worker, Suzy. Her works are so beautiful and thoughtful, each one created with love and the joy of creating. You can visit her beautiful blog Suzyqus Threadworks. Her lovely works will inspire you, I know they have me.
I loved how it was gift wrapped in a sheet of old sewing pattern, tied with ribbon and decorated with a sweet posy. A treasure.
This beautiful piece is 7” x 18” and I have it hanging in my bedroom.
I had a dinner invitation on the phone machine when I got home from work also, from my sweet friend Julie. She’s a single mom with three kids from 22-14 and she was fixing tacos for supper would I like to join them. Tacos is my all time favorite comfort food and being with her and her kids would be a treat and a change from eating alone. I had a nice time, the food was delicious and I was proud of myself for going out at night, in the dark, and making it back home. She doesn’t live that far away, so that was nice. Mark and I were a couple of homebodies so going out after dark is strange and a tad scary for me. Anyway, I’m glad I went and I know Mark would be happy I did and proud of me too.
It was nice to get back home to our little haven, and I loved and appreciated it all the more. I am so thankful for it and for all the projects Mark did around here to make it uniquely and creatively our ‘home sweet home’. Our haven from the hectic world that we live in.
Hope you all have a lovely Sunday or maybe Monday wherever you are.
