I'm a Lady in Waiting For a Lady - post to my diary

So after seeing so many glass flower frogs like this one, I took the bite and bid on this little gem.  I choose this salmon pink color over the clear...more rare and it goes with my new velvet box.  Can't wait till she arrives to give my special stitching scissors a new home!

A Country Chicken, Home At Last - a post to my diary

Soooo there is a story here.  I bought this for a friend in WI.  She hated it. Never saw it in her home, ever.  But my bestie - Mary went to her rummage sale years letter and yep...bought it and saved it for me.  Mary took it under her wing for a bit as she loved it as much as I did..do.  But on my return trip she sent me flying home with my chicken.  Home at last!:)

Refurbished this little lady using most of the old fabric......and then I needed a bigger sewing/stitching bag, so I sewed up this...  Loved the prim of the bag.  Burlap.  Who would have thought?
