This is a photo of what I found in my letterbox when I returned from shopping today. A beautiful Heart made for me by Jo from New Zealand.
I just love it, & it is so beautifully made. I love the colours, the work, the little dragonfly, beads, ribbon roses-in fact everything about it!
Oh Thank You So much Jo, you made my day!!

I have been challenged by Joyce to do the 7 unusual or hitherto unknown things meme, & also have been tagged for a similar meme by Stomper Girl.
I have a feeling I have done this before somewhere along the blogger trail, so I decided to do a Pictorial.
I never get tired of seeing flowers, & regard each one a complete miracle. Yes even the 'weeds'. A flower is a flower.
My head is a "Ball Magnet"! If there is a ball being tossed about, batted, or kicked, it will be sure to head straight for my head. I have been smashed in the face, almost had my nose broken, almost lost teeth - all from balls that were seemingly nowhere near me. I have been heard to involutarily shout "Shit!" as a ball at the beach hit the back of my head. The boys were so stunned they said "Sorry Lady!"
You can be sure if I decide to grow some succulent thingies, they will be mercilessly attacked by every insect known. Holes will appear like magic, & the poor plant will be rendered almost skeletal. Why why??
I love lemons. If the Nuns had told me to suck a lemon to wipe the smile off my face, it wouldnt have worked. I have been known to suck on lemons quite often. Particularly the lovely Meyer lemons we have.
I love bears. A dog ate my Teddy when I was little, & he was never replaced. Ever since then I have suffered bear deprivation anxiety. This has caused me to rescue, & hoard, funny odd bears, & hold them dear. My daughter just gave another, dear little Bear in a pink jumper. Isnt she sweet?
I married a man I refer to as GOM. He does many strange, funny, odd things. One of them has been dancing with a ballerina Poodle called Cassie! And this, when he professed to 'hate' dogs. What a fake he is!
I have rather a lot of weirdnesses. Some I have aired before. Some I may never even notice!
I rather enjoyed that, & it has certainly lightened my mood.
I am glad I went for the pictorial.
