A few weeks ago I had another birthday. The older I get the faster they seem to come around. I received some lovely gifts from my friends. One of those gifts came from Margaret in Spain.
Inside the package I found several wrapped goodies and a card that looked good enough to eat. I don't know if blogger is having a bad day or is just having a little tantrum!! Or heaven forbid is it me?? This is my first post since all the changes have made to improve blogger. So far I am not impressed. My pictures downloaded much faster but I am not sure what happened to all of them. They are among the missing. Anyway, I will try to continue. Is anyone else having these problems. Pictures and words just go where ever they want to!! I have lost control here too!!!
Inside there are several little pockets to keep my treasures.
Below are some little pillows and pincushions that Margaret also made. The first one is for my birth month. I love Lily of the Valley. Now I have lost the the picture of the backside of the May pillow. OMGoodness I am not happy. I will get a picture of the back because I love the fabric that Margaret choose to finish it with .
The back side. It is as cute as the front. Now who could stick a pin in that little cutie?
Thank you so much Margaret. I just love everything that you made and will treasure them always.
I have been spending way to much time on Pintrest of late. I find it so inspiring. Too inspiring maybe. If that is possible. Below are two projects that I found there and had to make. The first is a tall canning jar with a doily glued on the front of it. I added a couple of decorative things that I had on hand and some ribbon to dress it up a bit. I have a battery operated candle inside that lights up every nigh for five hours and then shuts off. I love it at night. I will have to take a picture of it this evening.
