We are all good here and enjoying our short springtime. Of course, the pollen count is very high so I only go outside a little. I spent 2 days dealing with wifi issues and now that is fixed. I learned some technical things and was glad I was able to fix it without paying a tech. I passed my medical physical with all the various tests, labs, xrays so I'm very grateful. What a change from last year at this time. Of course, I take meds to keep these old age ailments at bay but that's a given. I still have one more test later this month and the brother is having an MRI next week as well. Just a glimpse into real life. I hope to sew this week and even attend a day long WIP day at a new location on Friday. I need some down time.
Here is my list of "likes" for this week:
1. Confetti pink polka dot plant.
Isn't this sweet? It's about 4 inches, cost $3 at Sprouts and I couldn't resist. Since it lives indoor or out, I put it in the living room window. It can be in shade if necessary. I've had the pot for years-it's a Talavera made locally- purchased when I was still working and had a higher income. LOL I think the white dots on the pot coordinate well with the plant.
The plate is from Cost Plus many years ago that I would use for a cheese plate when entertaining. Do you ever go to an expensive store and feel good when you can afford to purchase just one thing? That was me that day but I think I paid $10 for it and have loved it for years.
2. Correctly cut jelly roll strips
This is not one. That is not a fold that you see, it's a jump in the fabric! I cut it in half- either side of the error and went on my way pressing the strips. Glad I caught it before sewing.
3. Easter Vignettes. Warning: very cute photos ahead
Rather than set up one table or shelf , I leave them around the dining and living room areas. They are just too cute. Thomas' favorite is the last photo. I purchased them all- many years ago -all at one time at Tuesday Morning. Score.
4. Good thoughts to start the day. I'm not keen on interior design "words" that cover the walls, or cute sayings on the wall, in general. But, one day I found this inexpensive, old wall hanging and loved it. It hangs in my bathroom to remind me as I start the day:
I think the patchwork background caught my eye first.
And now- I'm gonna clean the garage before it gets too hot. UGH. The dirt is tracking into the house, so time to sweep.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my little glimpse of my life and likes. Please join us at Lee Anna's post for more "likes" at:NOT AFRAID OF COLOR
Have a great day!
