Rainy Days and Mondays...

good afternoon...
you are probably thinking..what is it
with this girl and the weather?

if you it's not re: weather at all!
well, not the real stuff...just pretend!!

i think all that rain we've been having may have had an effect though,
i made this apron out of 'rainy days and mondays' fabric...

pale pink ric rac, selvedge and one red button...

a little pink 'if' tag,
'cos the possibilities of our lives are endless...

did you check out the tiny shoes on the barbie ornament..
miss b gave it to me last night!

many thanks to miss woody the chair model...again!
...for her statuesque deportment.

this will be the last creative post before Christmas.
i have to pack the sewing machine away...
clear my little 'sewing' table off
to perform other being laden with Christmas goodness,
food and sparkle and stuff!!

i wonder if someone will make me one of these?

these are at lisbeth's house!

lisbeth's blog lives here ...clever lady!!

i wish i did live in one of these at the moment...
my house is crammed with miss b's belongings
that she and mr m and mr p drove up from brisbane yesterday.

they are piled in my front room...
spreading from there to the lounge..
and the dining room table...etc...and ..etc!!

this week will involve
lots of trips to 'vinnies' { a local 'op' shop}
and some 'private' giveaways
and lots and lots of sorting...i'm tired just thinking about it!
{on the other hand...i might think of it as a treasure hunt...there could be endless goodies
...just like Christmas!!}

be glad this monday...for all that you've got...even if it's not a lot
let love, joy and peace be your portion!
