These tulips are SO worth the nine dollars I paid for them. I have been sniffing their spring-ness from quite a distance.
Look at the shine on the outside. Aren't they a miracle?
I ordered this Living Bible from Amazon (used) and it seems like every page has been turned but there are no markings. Perfect. I first read the Living Bible when I was a sophomore in high school. I loved the soft flowing story of it. I'm so happy to have a copy of it again and I've been making up for the lack of markings. I'm a bible doodler.
I've been sewing! Yes, Bill agreed that a new sewing machine was important, so I went to the Bernina store and bought the light portable (basic stitches) model. Bernina doesn't make this model but it is made to their specifications. It has a five year massive warranty and it purrs like a kitten! My Dottie Angel dress is done! I'm wearing it!
The instructions are VERY clear and very easy. I switched it up a bit because it is supposed to have a tie just under the bust and I deem that unnecessary because of my stout granny bod.
I'll take a whole self photo (Bill will) but he's not home at the moment. It's kind of like a salwar kameez because I'm wearing it with linen pants. When the pants came I tried them on immediately and they felt a bit tight in the behind but linen stretches and they fit now! Woot! Woot!
So now that I've shared my sewing (thank you for being supportive!) I shall share three cozy images. First, Uncle Wiggly's broken down house. It's STILL cozy, isn't it?
Isn't this a darling gypsy wagon? Don't get too cozy because there is a certain someone in the bed taking a wee nap!
And finally a Richard Scarry masterpiece. Tonight Kelli's girls are coming to spend the weekend. The marriage retreat that the parents were going to attend is too far away (lots of mountain driving and that isn't wise in January in the Rockies) so they'll have a staycation and the girls will hang out with us. Yay! I hope they decide sleeping is a good idea. We are such early to bed, early to rise types that if they choose to giggle and wiggle late into the night, Granny might get grumpy.
I hope you have a glorious weekend! Stay warm (or cool in Australia) and drink more than your fair share of tea. Thank you very much for stopping by!
