did not work and it had to come off.
It was beautiful to see but oh so cold out there. We were dressed for cold, but not for the Arctic blast
we got off the lake.
Cabin fever begets creativity. I have been sitting on these hankies. I don't even remember where I got them. Maybe at a rummage sale. The frame was my hubby's. It contained business cards of famous people like Henry Ford, Thomas Edison... silly art for a office. Well, it sat for years and after seeing something similar somewhere, (Pinterest perhaps) I got out the iron and pressed those hankies.
When I was finished I thought the frame would look better painted.
Here it is hung in my sewing, crafting and wedding prep room aka as a craftastrophy.
We were almost home by sunset, and what a sunset it was. The sweet end to a cozy weekend,
the beginning of a wonderful week.
We'll be celebrating three birthdays. Our dear son Jon, our son Daddy Doug
and a young at heart old lady, me.
When I turned 55 eight years ago, I wanted to do something brave. I went to a blogger event, even though I was just a lurker. That event was the catalyst for me to start my own blog. Here I am 8 years later. Surprised that I have stuck with it. Surprised and grateful that I have people who read what I write. Surprised that my life, though cyclical in many ways, has changed I am awed and have greater appreciation for everything. Stopping to look at the snowflakes, amazed at the sky at sunrise, the trees. In every aspect of my life, it is richer, more full, more satisfying. Contentment. Happiness. Love. Patience... I still have to work on that.
Thanks for stopping by and for your kindness.
Enjoy this beautiful day.
