New Ghost

I just bought the cutest little ghost on etsy.  It looks so cute with all of my other Halloween ornaments. It came from a shop called Just so vintage.  The owner, Ana Maria, has a spattering of vintage items as well as a selection of handmade vintage style ornaments.  Check her out here

It might have been a mistake for James to move in with Kevin. At first it seemed ideal: Kevin had a huge, empty house and James needed a place to stay.

It began with simple requests:
"James, will you hand me the newspaper?"
"James can you load the dishwasher?"

But now it never stops
"James, can you get me my ball point pen?"
"James, answer the door will you?"
"James, will you rub my bunions. my feet really took a beating on the golf course today?"

It never, ever stops. What does Kevin want, James' head on a platter?

Easter Basket Swap

Here are a few photos of an Easter basket swap I recently joined.  My partner was Cindy.  The basket is so pretty in my favorite shade.

 Cindy is very handy with a needle.  She made me a sweet chick, a cupcake shaped pincushion ( just look at that tiny needle work) and a sachet made from lavender she grew herself.
She is also great with paper.  Here she made an egg shaped hanging decoration, some tiny tags, and a decorated box filled with bits and bobs.

 The basket was filled with the prettiest little eggs decorated with leaves and flowers.  And yes, there were a lot of chocolate treats in there too.  I can't imagine what happened to them!

Thank you so much for being my partner Cindy.  I love everything!

Finger Ding

Do you remember finger dings?  Those cute little doll puppets you make walk with your fingers?  I found one today , like one I had as a child.  All she needs is her flower hat and she'll be off to the flower fairy dance.
