A month or so ago, I had posted how much I would love to find a wooden bowl. I was so touched that so many contacted me letting me know they would keep on the look-out. Thank you so very much. Imagine how excited I was when my friend Marie from Spun By Me emailed me that she already had one that she would be willing to do a trade for. Arrangements were made and look what I got in the mail on Friday!
This beautiful old wooden bowl, a quilt remnant, vintage hankie, notepad and wonderful plaque! Thank you so VERY, VERY much Marie! *big hugs*
I immediately cleaned off my table and decided to use the quilt remnant on it as a tablecloth, then filled the bowl with some moss and my salt dough flowers. I think it looks so pretty despite my DH telling me that my flowers looked like eggs 'sunny side up'. Men! *laughing*
Friday is my niece's ninth birthday and while I do not get to see her very often I wanted to get her something I thought she would appreciate for her birthday. So Friday I went out and bought a paper mache box and painted it with flowers and her name.
She loves to craft, just like her Auntie :), so I decided to fill it with paints, brushes, ribbon and some salt dough hearts and flowers to be used as necklaces. I hope she likes it.
Here are the next two Italian phrases for the day:
#1 - Che tipo di vino e'!
kay tee-poh dee vee-noh ay
What kind of wine is that?
#2 - Alleluia!
I also wanted to let you know there is a new recipe posted over at Cooking at Goat Creek . Its for my version of the Crabbed Stuffed Mushrooms that they serve at Red Lobster.
Take care and I hope you all can enjoy your Sunday afternoon. Its a rainy one here again so I plan on trying to work on a few crafts and help DH with his psychology homework. Can you guess which one I am more excited about? *laughing*
