When I manage to make it through another January and the Calendar tells me it's February 1st - out come the red hearts!! I made this felt pin covered with sequins and beads many years ago and it really works! I get hugs! :-)I also made the other one, and one for my sister, too. When I was working in the circulation department of The Oregonian, one of the other workers saw me making beaded things (we could read, do crosswords or crafty things between calls) - and asked me if I'd like some sequins that they'd inherited. I said yes, of course, thank you! And the next day they brought in this bag with a huge and extensive collection of vintage sequins in a rainbow of colors! Score!
I was simply over-the-moon happy yesterday - as it was sunny and 60 degrees and warm and we even were able to open the kitchen window and invite in some fresh air! I walked out on the deck and saw this Primrose coming up in a pot on the railing! :-)
I laid out my 2 pins along with 3 of my crocheted Scandinavian Hearts.. you can get the pattern I wrote out for free as a PDF, there is a link up at the top right on my blog.
Also a happy thing was this rose which has survived in bud form all through the winter and is starting to open in the warm sunshine.. how cool is that?
Here is another bud on that same rose bush. SWEET!
Last evening I lit two candles we picked up while grocery shopping yesterday - they are heavily scented and smell divine! I bought a string of heart shaped lights.. when I opened the package I was shocked to see the string was only 3 feet long! So, I put them in my lantern along with a pot of Primrose. This photo does not show these things well, sorry.
I was afraid if I lit the candle it would be too warm for the Primrose. :-)
One of the candles has sandalwood and the other vanilla.
The Primrose in the light of day.
Hubby had read in the newspaper about how a food cart called "Best Burger" had done so well that they'd opened a brick and mortar restaurant also - so we decided to give it a try. What do you think? :-)
And this is the fortune I got in my cookie when we went out for Chinese food the other day. Is this true? :-)We have a lovely sunny day stretching ahead of us. I think I'm going to crochet a few different hearts.. a puffy one and a Lucy one. What are your weekend plans? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
