I really don't have time to blog, but I just have to blog today! When I got home from jury duty, I found a mailbox full of goodies! First, I received a lovely thank you card from Mike, along with one of his gorgeous snowflakes... lucky me!
Last week I had a bad case of "I need to spend some money now!"... I think it was because our well pump when out, and when something expensive needs to be done, I compensate by buying myself presents. I know that's extremely selfish, but that's the kind of girl I am! Anyway, I went shopping on Etsy... very dangerous! I bought a beautiful shawl pin from Nicholas and Felice. I also went on a pin cushion binge. Yes, pin cushions! I find them very hard to resist, and the first one arrived today from 2Monkeez!
But my most important purchase was two new shuttles from LadyShuttleMaker! I have been drooling over Sherry's copper shuttles, and I just could not resist. Then, I noticed that she had some new ceramic shuttles listed... oh, joy! I love Sherry's ceramic shuttles. Some of them even sing to me! If you haven't tried one, you don't know what you're missing. They're very light weight and hold a ton of thread. Yes, you do have to be careful with them. I dropped one and broke off the tip, but I successfully repaired it and finished tatting the piece I was working on. They are wonderful, usable, little works of art, and I am the proud owner of several.
I'm a retired elementary computer teacher/librarian, mother to four, grandmother to seven. I love lace. I love books. I love to collect. Now that I'm retired, I know I'll never be bored because I have so many interests, as well as the goodies I need to indulge my whims!
