Do you have any handkerchiefs you'd like Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle to iron? I have two pink Beatrix books, new to my pile of books. Amazon knows my preferences a little too well, I think. I read the two stories below to myself, before bed this week. This morning I had fun copying Mrs. Tiggy-Winkle into my sketch book. I especially adore the stripey skirt. If I ever get around to wearing skirts, I must sew a Tiggy-Winkle version for my own granny self.
Do you love the gentleman's coat? I do, even though he is a villain in the story.
My friend Debbie from No Spring Chicken pointed me toward a little video about Kaffe Fassett found on Little Jenny Wren's blog. Talk about inspirational color material! Wow! I ordered a book! I love Kaffe's polka dot shirt and springy shorts, don't you?
One of my Christmas money orders could not be fulfilled (a new set of Laura Ingals Wilder books) but I still have my old tattered set, so I ordered this wall sticker for the living room instead. Isn't it fun to "stick" something pretty on your walls? I think so! Gigi at My Firefly Cottage said that pretty soon I'm going to have to rename my blog in a toadstool fashion. Ha ha! No, I will give myself a toadstool year and then move on to something else (maybe something a little less silly, right?)
Meanwhile, I feel quite inspired by this mama toadstool and her pretty babies!
The grandbaby is being born right now! I will update as soon as he/she arrives! Thank you for your prayers for April.
I am going to a Scentsy party at Kelli's today. Do you know what it is? I think it's products that send lovely smells through the hallways and corridors of your home. Yummy! I hope they sell strawberry smells.
Bill and I are going to try a new church tomorrow. We're looking forward to that.
Thank you for popping by today. It's always nice when you peek in to check on me. May you have a VERY colorful and inspirational weekend. (Big hug and kiss!)
Added update: Atticus Jeffrey has arrived! He weighs in at 8 lbs. 1 oz! 20.5 inches long! Hooray! Mommy is doing well! She's a champion, Brad says! Thank you, God!
Oh, and we really liked the new church, too! Pictures to come!
