What's Happenin'?

So.... there's lots going on here- but mostly boring administrative stuff. I don't think you want to see a photo of filing cabinet, do you? Nah, I didn't think so....

I wanted to show you these gorgeous photos I received from Deborah at Woolen Sails Blog. A couple of weeks ago we got to talking when I showed you my oh-so-simple ring bearer's pillow, made by wrapping a vintage embroidered table runner around a pillow form. Deborah sent me photos of the one she had just made for her son and daughter-in-law- gorgeous! Look at all the hand embroidery that she did- I love the white on white, so elegant, and surely a keepsake. She discusses the details here.

This is the pillow that I made for my daughter's wedding back in June, using a linen that my grandmother had hand embroidered over 60 years ago....

Also today I wanted to say Congratulations to Husei all the way in Malaysia who won my Christmas in July giveaway a few weeks ago. Your prize is on its way, Husei.  By the way, I have another giveaway coming up soon so check back.

Finally, I was feeling a bit down last week... but there is nothing like RED to cheer me up when I am blue.
Look what I bought for myself (a bargain at Marshall's- and they had my size- I took that as a sign that they were meant to be mine....) They make me want to click my heels three times.... I will be wearing them when I go out for my birthday dinner tomorrow night:

What's happenin' with you this week?


  1. Thank you for the wonderful comments you made about my pillow. I still like yours, has a lot of meaning and history in it. I wish I had saved things from my grandmother, she was the crafter in our family. I haven't worn dress shoes in ages, the last pair I bought was for an outdoor wedding, so i got sandals, lol.

    Have a wonderful time for your Birthday!
