THANK YOU all for your WELL WISHES from my previous post....I'm SLOWLY making my way back to you in between trips to storage & out foraging in the Hard Rubbish....No REST for the SELF EMPLOYED hey what.... :o) ~~
I hope this post finds you well & NECK deep in Treasures.... :o) ! Speaking of which, I find Treasures on my travels in the HR, Op-Shops, Markets what have you but the ones I ADORE....The ones that make me SMILE OUT LOUD are the ones that come from my Friends & I'm ITCHING to show you three in particular....!!
** sigh **
A while a go I discovered the SWEETEST blog over in the UK called Bobo Bun....As I was reading through older posts I came across the MOST ADORABLE floral knitted brooch I had EVER seen & promptly emailed the GORGEOUS Lisa advising I needed one TOOT SWEET....!
Lisa being the accomodating Lovey that she is promptly set about making one & I am MIGHTILY PLEASED to advise that it arrived yesterday....I have worn it MOST every waking hour since....Excepting for a short while when I went to my storage unit to move stuff about....But it was CLOSE by so I could gaze upon it's LOVELINESS as I sweated away.... :o)
It came mounted on the most DIVINE vintage childrens playing card which I've OBSCURED here so you'll have to take my word for it....AND the tiniest 'MOO' card I've ever seen....** LOVE ** ....!!
Just check out the CRAFTWOMANSHIP....You WON'T get that out of China will ya....!!
The second Treasure I want to share with you came from my Friend Sue from Montreux....Remember when I introduced you to Sue here & here....Well a couple of weeks ago at the Market, Sue stopped by my little space & showed me this ADORABLE trophy she had just found....I couldn't help but SQUEAL out loud when I saw it all danged up with it's peely paint & dark patina....Sue promptly handed it to me & said "Take it it's yours....A 'leaving work' gift."....Well SERIOUSLY Friends I KNOW you will understand this when I write this was one of those occasions when I ALMOST peed my pants in my excitement....I LOVE moments like these you share with Friends....They're just PRICELESS....THANK YOU Sue....I'll TREASURE this little SWEETY ALWAYS....!!
And last but by NO means least is little Rufus....I don't think I've introduced you to this little fellow but if I have it doesn't matter because I'm SURE he's just as SWEET second time around....!! Rufus comes to me compliments of the GORGEOUS Catherine over in New Zealand....This WONDERFUL blogger has several blogs you MUST go & visit....An Angel In The Garden, An Angel In The Kitchen & An Angel On The Porch & is a SWEETHEART to boot....One day I received a note from Catherine simply saying that she had found a lost soul (Terrier) that needs to make his way to me & could she have my address....A short time later, Rufus arrived & while initially he lived with my vintage cookie cutter collection, he now resides on a shelf in my hutch where I see him numerous times a day when I walk by....Each time I do....I SMILE OUT LOUD....!!
So there you have it....THREE Treasures....THREE Friends....LOTS of smiles....!
Wherever you are, I hope you have a Friend or THREE who make you smile too....!!
Cheers for now,
