I thought I'd mix it up a bit and give my blog a brighter springier look. I don't know what is going on with some of the older posts and the background colors but enough html messing about! I am still struggling to master the blogger upgrades .... perhaps if I read directions it would come to me easier but alas, I just charge through. So, as promised, much updating to be done and here is a little sampling......
first up - my Drawn Threads Love and Wisdom piece I finished a few years back finally made it to the framers. I love the frame Karen helped me with. Just pardon the spacing with the pictures until I figure out the upgrades!
Maybe it's not the upgrades but my playing around with layouts and templates. But I digress. I love junking and found a new shop not to far from my office. They specialize in estate cleanups so the items are nice. You tell me....which is better. Four weeks ago I bought a new planter to transplant a cactus. $17 from Home Depot and it is OK. The gray kind of matches the stainless steel and blue of my laundry room backsplash tiles.
But three weeks ago, I picked up these babies. $15 and $12 and so much nicer than the new one. I quickly transplanted my jade plant and bought a cyclamen for the other. Look at the detail. The handle shown below is the cutest! Just goes to show you they don't make them like they used to.
You can see here the size is the same.
I kind of had a calendar snafu. I kept thinking Wednesday was the first of April...don't know what I was looking year I was looking at. I guess I am looking forward to April.....busy busy month. Travel and a class with the Ellen Chester! I am part of the planning committee so I get to have dinner with her and Tom the night before our weekend of classes. At any rate, I continue my exercising each morning, remembering to take my vitamins, been reading, definitely stitching and enjoying working in my yard.....life is good. I might just have to play hooky a couple of days next week to get some flower beds edged and mulch spread. Hope that warm weather comes back.
