I love eBay and our mail lady. Between the two of them, I get to buy things that I'd never had even imagined. :-) I recently saw a miniature porch swing and thought.. hmm.. that would be just the thing to decorate the front porch of my dollhouse! And so I found one, and of course I looked at what the seller had in addition.. and found two hanging baskets of flowers for the porch! Below is the geranium basket I found! Sorry for the fuzzy photo. But look at the leaves! And the flowers! And the little wooden basket it's in! Love it!
And then this basket of mixed flowers.. :-)The swing even came with 2 screw in hooks, hubby has a job to do today, hang it up. And the flower baskets. I guess we need to take down the xmas wreath.. OR.. I could put flowers in it.. hmm...
My Christmas cactus' are blooming again! Here is the white one I got from my Aunt Helyn in Annapolis. She gave me some cuttings and they're doing great.
This is the only one I bought.. the colors are simply lush.. pink-y orange-y yummy. The flowers are really BIG!
We picked up some Easter colored Jelly Belly candies to put in my glass rabbit. And I used the ribbon on my rabbit that tied the tissue around my red scarf I got from Meredith at "Mereknits". I think I need a few more crocheted eggs to make my basket full, don't you think?
Today I'm working on a package to send to England. I've come to feel a special kinship to a blogger named Lucy at Lucy "In the Sky" blog. We have so much in common! She spins, knits, crochets and recently made a basket! We play Scrabble together via Facebook. I met her via "We Love Lucy" group in Ravelry. We both started blogging at about the same time. Soooo.. when we both participated in a swap in Rav before Christmas, we admitted to each other that we wished that we'd been paired for the swap. Then, when we both had giveaways on our blogs, we both wished we'd been picked.. but weren't. So, Lucy proposed that we have a swap just between ourselves and I enthusiastically agreed! She told me some things she liked and so I've been shopping and so has she. She told me she shipped her box today and I will ship tomorrow. I will show you what she sends to me and I think she'll show you what I sent. How fun is this!! I'm off to go shopping at an antique mall.. lol! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
