~Goodbye Sweet Molly~

I had to say goodbye to another of my furbabies a couple of weeks ago.....dear sweet little Molly was in so much pain and nothing was helping I had to make the hardest choice to euthenaize.  This has been a horrible year in that I have now had to say good bye to two of my precious pets.  It never gets easier but I wouldnt change a minute of the time I had with them.

~Goodbye Molly...Always Loved....Never Forgotten~

~Kris Kringle Gifts~

Before you know it Christmas will be here.  I participate in a  Kris Kringle each each year with a lovely group of ladies called DAGS (Doily Addicts Group)  One of the ladies mentioned earlier in the year wanting a lace hanger....funnily enough she was my KK so I though what better than to make her what she wanted.  As with all first made items they take planning and thinking and more planning and thinking and then some drawing....and loads of procrastinating too....but I am really pleased with the finished product...not to mention the fun I had making it.  I have even done a tutorial for you to make your own.  (look for the tab at the top of the page)


Thanks to Beverley from How sweet The Sound for being our gracious host each week.

~A Beautiful Gift~

I have been very fortunate to have the nicest neighbours around me.  While we don't live in each others pockets nor do we socialise with them, we do often have friendly chats over the fence or water their gardens if they are away and generally just keep an eye out on each others property.
One set of my neighbours is forever changing her decor and always offers me her cast offs before she throws them out or gives them to charity.  To say I have been very fortunate is an understaement....her taste is amazing and her home is full of very beautiful pieces, both vintage and new.  This week she has given me a beautiful Aubusson rug........her kindness and generosity is beyond I thought this rug is perfect for sharing on  Pink Saturday .

Thankyou to Beverley from How Sweet The Sound for hosting each and every week.
