A Surprise From Norway!


This lovely surprise arrived just in the big middle of my thank you posts! Just half an hour ago. From Norway!

You do know what this is right? The real stuff to make curled wood ornaments just like the ones in yesterday's post - the roosters from Poland and the German ornaments I have had on my tree since the 70's!

Once I pulled the images together for this post I didn't know what to start with! But settled on this gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous curled wood rooster Kathy sent me this past summer. It is one of three! Her cousin brought them for me all the way from Poland!

It Is Good To Have An Artistic Friend!


Almost exactly one year ago today these beautiful polymer clay tiles arrived in the mail - a gift from my friend *Chris. I keep them out on display in a lovely pottery tray so I can touch them and enjoy them daily. Their colors make my eyes happy and the texture makes my fingers happy!

I bet you are wondering about me by now! I keep mentioning that this gift or that is displayed year round! Well - it is true! Just ask Diane. My house is turning into an art gallery.

Another friend who makes perfect stitches! If I keep company with perfect stitchers, certainly my own stitches will improve?

*Rachel adapted these adorable little marshmallow men from a project I shared during the first month I was blogging and she stitched them onto the most beautiful apron I have ever owned. Unlike my other aprons who live in a drawer, this much loved treasure is proudly displayed in my kitchen!

Just look at this b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l felt star ornament! Look at how perfect it is! How does anyone do that? Perfect I mean.

Alice, our beloved Futuregirl does it! I mean the perfect thing!
