 And I do too!


  1. Hi Marie, lovely finds today. Some people are just so clever and talented. I don't know how they think half these things up!

    We've got visitors coming today, relatives from Singapore. It's been one of those busy weeks but I'm hoping after today things will slow down for a bit, especially as we've been forecasted lots of sunshine!

    Have a lovely Friday, lot's of love xxx

    1. Thanks Kate! I hope you had a lovely visit with your relatives! Hope you are enjoying some of this lovely weather! Xoxo

  2. Hi, Marie--Happy Friday! LOVE those owl slippers--too CUTE! The knitted ornamentsare very cute too. It's way too early for me to think about Christmas, though... LOL! That Starburst crochet blanket is lovely--that deep edging is wonderful. Miffy--LOVE Miffy!! :) Those reversible placemats are a nice idea. Those "dancing" felt birds are adorable! You find the best stuff, Marie! hhhmmm--hair conditioner + vinegar = fabric softener. I can see how it would work, but I just use vinegar with some lavender in for me! ;) Those enchiladas look sooo GOOD! I make something very similar, and this reminds me I've not made them in a while--must remedy! Hope you, dear Todd and lovely Mitzie had a very good weekend ahead! LOVE YOU SOOO MUCH, my friend ((LOVE & BIG HUGS))

    1. Thanks Tracy! I am Lways thinking about Christmas! It’s my favourite holiday? Xoxo

    1. Thanks Monique Bon weekend tonyou also! It’s a smasher here! Xoxo

  4. About the only hat I wear those days is my straw hat I wear in the summer. It helps to shade my eyes when the sunshine is so bright out. It's a must when I'm working in the yard. We are having a rainy day here, but I've a lunch date with two good friends so they'll brighten things up! Hope you have a fantastic Friday !

    1. I hope you enjoy your lunch out Pam! Xoxo
