Not only did Sophia's Barbie Charm School Princess costume get finished...
but...inspired by an old calendar page, and Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass...oh, and Carol King...I also got a great start on a wall hanging for Elcira's baby, Antonella.
Elcira is the granddaughter of my son-in-law's step-father...so I consider her family. :) Her new little perfect bundle looks just like her daddy and is as beautiful as any little girl can possibly be.
I haven't actually met her yet...only pictures so far...but now that the long list of ailments is OVER - thank God!!! - I feel safe in going to visit her. (My ailments...not hers).
Plus, I didn't have her gift ready...but it will be by tonight...or tomorrow at the latest.
Actually...I love today. Right now.
" What day is it? "
which I used to make contact cards to pass out when we visit Virginia and Florida NEXT MONTH!!!
My play room looked so sunny and inviting this morning that it was hard for me to go downstairs for coffee...but...
while we were reading (I read aloud to Jerry every morning)
we also had time to enjoy the birds watch us and eat from the feeder that Jerry made from an old rusted wok (top) and the face from a broken fan (bottom).
(They ate from the feeder...not us). I know I'm a confusing writer. (You ought to hear me talk).
And one last thing...this very generous lady puts beautiful vintage pictures on her blog for anyone's use.
So...in the spirit of giving...I scanned these...in case you want to print them for your art backgrounds...
More and better pictures for YOU coming in future posts. :)
Gotta go finish that baby's quilt!
I'm linking to WOYWW so please go check out what all those talented ladies are doing...
