I'm adding my post to Leslie's today....as I am working on some things. First of all, it was SO hot and sunny all last week.....now this week it has rained since Sunday and I need to get alot of laundry done that can't go in the dryer!! Ugh! Oh well, it will all get done eventually.
I've also decided to start a new cross-stitch project, so I pulled this chart from my stash. I like it, it's a quick stitch and hopefully will get it done soon. I just needed something new to perk me up.
I'm in a really crappy mood this week. I know it's partly because of my cousin and her husband's passing, which by the way, I will be headed to the funeral home later today...but it's also partly my relationship with hubby. I will not go into any detail....he is a very good person, but we are SO different. You would think that after 22 years of being together I could accept that, but there are times when I can't...how do you find the faith to be positive in a relationship? No, he hasn't done anything wrong...it's just that our personalities clash at times. I don't understand his reasoning in things...and he in mine I guess. How do you look the other way and not say something when you disagree with him??
Anyway, on a brighter note, I am also going to make a stop at the thrift store later today. About a week and a half ago, I went and there was this large plastic jar of beads...my youngest wanted it....it was $1.99, so I got it for her...well, let me tell you, that jar has provided SO much enjoyment for both her and my oldest DD...they have made many necklaces and bracelets and youngest is going away next week to a cottage with her friend and family, so I decided to go see if there are more beads to be had! Actually, my youngest is best friends with my oldest DD's boyfriend's sister...they are the same age and get along wonderfully, so his family is taking my youngest to a cottage for a fun week! Confusing enough??
I also thought I would show you a couple of my favourite things in my home. This is not a good photo of my tea set, I had a hard time getting it, because it sits on top of my cupboards, but it is a Holly Hobby set my mom got for me when I was in grade 12. I had seen this set (teapot...4 cups and saucers and creamer and sugar bowl) in the drug store in my home town...it was $28.00....I remember that..LOL and I wanted it so badly, so anyway, there it was under the tree that Christmas. I have never seen another one just like it, and after all this time, I still absolutely adore it.
This is a bench that DH got for me a few years ago....I really like it...and the dolls, well I happened upon the Holly Hobby one 3 years ago...it was at a flea market I went to with a friend....and it was in a box of old stuffed animals...I asked the man how much it was...he said 25 cents! I proudly display her on the bench...the other two I bought from a lady at a different flea market...both were hers and new with tags on them....one is an Anne of Green Gables doll...I got them for $1.00 each!!! I think they all look nice sitting here.
Anyway, I have rambled on enough....you all have a great day!!
