On Wednesday we picked up some fun balloons and headed to our son's house to help celebrate the birthday of our youngest son Travis' oldest son, Hayden. Kristi made spaghetti and garlic bread for us all and she also made the cake, which was nummy! She said Hayden wanted balloons on his cake. :-)Happy Birthday to you!
Then yesterday Dayle brought in a package from the mail lady and I went.. hmmm.. did I order something? Then I opened the box and there was a very nice note from Susanne at Forget-Me-Not blog - and a sweet little gift of 2 hand crocheted dollhouse doilies and some miniatures that she said were duplicates so she sent them to me! WOW!! How sweet and generous!! She hoped that I didn't have these same items and I don't, so these will look awesome in my dollhouse! I especially am excited about the doilies as she made them and I don't have any in my dollhouse. :-)There are the 2 doilies, a copper pot, a stainless frying pan, a little milk bottle, a little wooden piggy bank and a coffee grinder! I have a grinder like this that I used for years to grind our coffee by hand. Love it!
Isn't this a pretty, tiny little doily?
*T*H*A*N*K* * *Y*O*U*!*!*!* Susanne!!I am on my last 2 rows of my shawl! I want to wear it at my DAR meeting on Monday, so I am determined to finish it this weekend. I'll show you the whole thing when it's done. And so.. don't tell hubby.. but I ordered some cotton yarn from KnitPicks for a blanket I want to do... I've loved the soft pastel cotton blankets that Shari has made from Kashmere Kisses blog... so I put in an order and I want to try out their new line of bulky cotton yarn called "Billow". I also ordered 1 skein of their "CotLin" which is a cotton and linen blend. And a few other things... can't wait for the order to come.. it seems to take a LONG time. :-)
I've been way too busy lately and we have a clear calendar for 3 days.. BLISS! What do you have planned for the weekend? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
