We both love dishes and have too many. Many women in my family love dishes, too. I have three beautiful cousins that I know collect Polish Pottery and I wish they lived closer so I could shop with them. I really don't know much about it or appreciate it quite enough yet. Truthfully, seeing all this loveliness in one spot was like a drink from a fire hose! I am so glad it's close so I can think about it and go back when I have some extra pocket money.
I bought the cross because of Rumer Godden. I have finished my second Rumer Godden novel (also about nuns) and I'm so taken with her style. The story and the characters are lasting, they make a big impression. I mean for the cross I bought to be a marker of this time in my life when I have been reading her work.
My art buddy Lisa sent me a parcel. Her blog is Pen, Ink, and Maybe Some Paint (see blog roll). I love her work. She made me a foldable art journal with lovely Lisa drawings and then sent me two empty ones. FUN!
Here's my next Rumer read! Yay!
Miss Bug made the one above. I think the "I love you, Mom" is so precious. She knows her mama (our Kelli) is very very good. Aw.
We have a big week with our grands. We'll see them all. James and his mama are coming for lunch tomorrow. CB and Finn are coming on Thursday for Granny Camp! We are anticipating the fun. They'll be here on the 4th of July. Double fun!
I've been washing all the dishes I have on shelves around the house. I've been writing more letters. I've been using essential oils to scent our rooms and massage our aches and pains. The sun is shining very bright today and my hollyhocks are about to bloom. Every good thing DOES come down from God indeed.
