A World of Friends
Last summer I expressed here on the blog how I wished I had some shells to do a little summer decorating.
But alas, I could not afford to buy any.
Back in August, Amy of Maison Decor sent me a box full of shells she collected from her vacation to Martha's Vineyard.
Shortly after that, Traci wrote to tell me she would send me sand dollars.
Well, they arrived yesterday....a whole box of the pretty white things.
I hope you read this. I so appreciated them coming as a surprise.
I can't wait to use them in my decorating next summer.
I would email you but I've lost track of your email and I have several Traci's that I communicate with.
So please let me know if you read this...so I can thank you properly.
I've received so many nice gifts over the last year and especially the last couple of months.
Bloggers are so thoughtful and kind.
Elegant burlap pumpkins made by Donna of D Reyne's
Donna sent me a precious burlap pumpkin in September.
Seems everyone in Blogland was trying to cheer me up.
I haven't shown my burlap pumpkin yet. The photo above is from Donna's blog.
I wanted to show once I'd used in a display. So I'll show it very soon.
I have to say they do look very wonderful with old silver.
I love her blog so much with it's Tinker House and all the beautiful things she makes and all
her fabulous projects in her home. If you don't know her blog...you need to go there immediately.
Amy's blog is in my top blogs I never miss too.
Today, I'm out to find some sort of part time job. I've not been able to find a full time design job.
So I'll be going in to retail...I suppose. I haven't done that in a very long time.
Shelly had her first catscan today since being on this last round of chemo.
Things are kind of just staying about the same.
Lungs are better on one side and a little worse on the other.
The chemo has slowed the cancer but it's still there.
But she is feeling better when she is not deathly sick from chemo. So it has helped.
She will continue with more treatments of chemo and will have some other therapy added.
She had hoped to go back to work but it does not look like that will happen now.
Of course we were hoping for remission. But we'll take any added time we can get.
Have you seen these salad plates at Pottery Barn?
Oh...I'd love to have these to mix with my Richmond White Johnson Brother's china.
Even though I never have Thankgiving at my house.
But these would be perfection with white china and lots of old silver.
Someone get them and tell me how fabulous they are because I can't afford to.
If I could, I'd buy them just to make a tablescape to share with all of you.
Thanks for being there...
