Treats

The evening comes tinged with pink edges, a seeming promise of a fine, and perhaps,  beautiful day tomorrow.



A treat from over the sea. This lovely little hanging, bringing sweet sentiments and the love of friendship. So very sweet. Thankyou Jane, of Marigold Jam.  Do  check out this blog, she writes the most delightful posts.


Another free treat for me, was an email message from another Blog friend. It is amazing how much better support can make one feel, even if it comes from cyber space, and caring friends unmet, in the flesh.
Thankyou Mary, you are a treasure.

This, for me, was a treat to make. I have been trying to summon the Mojo to help me create this promised item, for my Dear Daughter J.
Yesterday the Mojo came home, and I made the complete item! I was so happy, and so is my daughter. It looks a little cream in the pic, but is actually Ivory. The lace is an old treasure I had kept and we found the perfect ribbon, along with some lovely velvet ribbon, also among my treasures.

I really did enjoy feeling like sewing again!

We have a very nice neighbour, who recently lost his 'Bride' of many years. He is now 80 years old, and is a remarkable man. He still rises every morning at 4am to go to train his horses. He says he doesn't know what he would do with himself, if he didnt still train the horses. He told he he takes flowers to the Bride's grave to celebrate her birthdays.
I had asked if he could remove a Privet, which had grown wild among his Bride's lovely Azaleas. Apart from being ugly, the Privet gives me severe hayfever.
As good as his word, he got his Grandson to remove the Privet yesterday, after having borrowed a saw from Gom. The Bride once told me that her Groom would not know one end of a hammer from the other!

That may be true, but he sure can train some winninging horses!

Blogger is infuriating me beyond endurance this morning.
I began this post last evening, and found it impossible to upload photos, due to 'maintenance'.

This morning, I had a little better luck, but simply can not upload 2 more photos I had hoped to add.

Gom is out in the kitchen, doing unthinkable things to the bench and other assorted items. I am trying so hard to remain in here, away from it all. I figure what I don't see, won't hurt me!

I am off out this afternoon, hopefully for some retail therapy, with my Dear Daughter. She is shopping for a bra. Never an easy task, and the last shop she tried, (which boasted it can fit any figure,) ridiculously told her they don't stock her size, but she could buy an extension to make one fit! WTH?? She is a perfectly normal, average size?
I need some pretty, comfortable,  sandals, since I can no longer wear heels and so wish us both luck!

Hi Meg, I just wrote about the photo thing on the end of my post. If you go back to your dashboard and click edit then go to the post it will let you add another photo. I found I had to repeat doing that till I got 3 in.
Good luck with the shoes. You made me giggle as I have just been posting about that too!

Hope you find some shoes just like you want. I actually bought myself 2 new pair of Debbie sneakers (Danskin) from walmarts last week. They will keep my feet warm through fall and winter. Also got a new pair of dress flats. My husband is short and he asked me years ago to wear flats so I wouldn't be taller than he is. I told him yes and never regretted it. My feet fare so much better in flats. Summer its flip flops for me. I love them. Life is good !!

Enjoyed seeing your treats.

Wishing you a very successful shopping trip with your daughter- I find shoes challenging- I have found a shop that fits my feet - they are pretty pricey but well worth the price for well fitting shoes.
Hope you also found a treat or two that makes you smile and a little fun too.
Warmest regards,
Anna

Good luck with the shopping - buying comfy shoes these days is a nightmare as although comfort wins over style I always hope to find something that also looks good too! Hope your daughter finds her bra too - when you find one that is right buy several eh?!! Glad too that you liked the little hanging.

Yay for the return of your sewing mojo -- the lace and ribbons are beautiful. I hope you have a wonderful day shopping!

Angie said...

I'm so glad you got your sewing mojo back, Meggie! Are you feeling better? I think of you so often, and hope that things are smoothing out for you. I also hope you found some sandals too! :D Hugs, dear friend.

Bra shopping. *Shudder!*

Is there anything more horrific than the unforgiving glare of fluorescent lights striking pink flesh?

Molly said...

Hope you both found what you needed on your retail therapy jaunt! Lovrely for you that she lives close enough that you can do that. What you made for her is beautiful!
