Coming Up Red Roses!

hi!

this afternoon i'm linking up with 'maxabella'...

i'm grateful

for a week that started up as

sad
dreary
depressed
&
grey

and ended up as

joyful
amazing
loving
&
coming up red roses!

i am grateful for change...

transitions
steps
oprah
&
coincidences.

this fabric was on my mind this morning
&
i think it just fits the bill!



roses are red
violets are blue
golden ribbons of friendship
remind me of you!



the green apron was posted today...

was it coincidence
that i thought of my friend debbie last saturday
&
then before i could even get the apron made
she sent me a parcel
to spoil me?



was it a cooincidence
that my friend margaret
was at the local shopping centre
at the same time i was
&
we spent a lovely morning
relaxing over coffee and raisin toast
on wednesday?

i think i love red buttons!


as soon as i saw these red buttons in a shop
i wanted to own them and use them...

haha! i'm grateful for red buttons too!

i hope you're having a red letter saturday...
and have time to smell red roses
and collect red buttons.
