Earlier when I went out a pair of redbirds were chirping away. They always make me feel happy. The weather is mild, there is a gentle breeze, and there’s been a little rain and we may get more. We had a LOT night before last, some areas got 7 inches in three hours. The ground is still saturated in areas.
As I was sitting at my computer awhile ago, I remembered a sale going on in my neighborhood, so quickly got dressed and headed over there. I’m on the looks out for laces, ribbons, threads, beads, buttons, etc.
Here’s what I got today.
Fresh baked whole grain bread and cinnamon rolls along with the other goodies.
Close up of 4 lace curtain panels, a little over 6 ft. in length, and wide, $3
the other little round needlework bits were 5 – $3.
The crocheted little butterfly 25 cents. I want to figure out the pattern so I can make my own.
The necklace I bought for the beads $2.
Isn’t this frame sweet with the little roses?
More embroidery and beading done on this heart. I sit here listening to soothing music as I work, and think about life and love.
Here I am at work taking photos.
Caught myself in the mirror.
Didn’t see myself in this one until editing. The frame on this mirror is glass, it’s maybe 3 ft. in diameter. There are a pair of these and there were only 8 pair made.
I have a confession to make. Yesterday as I was looking at blogs from ‘Where Bloggers Create’, where I like to go visit for inspiration and ideas, I started feeling down instead. That’s awful. A lot of these studios are whole rooms, filled to capacity with gobs and oodles of deliciousness and I let that get me on a downward spiral for some reason. Shame on me.
This morning I woke up feeling better. I am truly blessed with what I have and am grateful. I am who I am, have what I have. I am working on making my whole little cottage a better organized place to create, ideas are whirling. I am thankful to friends who have sent me ribbons, beads, etc. for creating with, and I’m thankful for goodies my dear husband found me in the past (and for all of his love and encouragement), and I’m thankful for goodies I am finding now. Every day is a gift from God. What we do with it is up to us.
My new little gifted rose from Deb & her husband is putting out green growth and it’s exciting. Orchids are sending out flower spikes, other things are blooming too, but my batteries needed charging so you all will have to wait until later for more flower candy.
Have a good weekend whatever you do, wherever you are.
