...as opposed to smart colds, of course. Hubby, just last week, came home from work with the beginning signs of the Sniffles. Uh-oh. These things never end there. Of course, the Sniffles progressed into a full-fledged nasty Cold and, just as he was beginning to show signs of being better, I came down with it. And I, being the giving person that I am, passed it right back to him. So now we are both into a full-fledged nasty old stupid old cold. Since we are both prone to bronchitis and I have what they call a "compromised immune system" because of medications I take, I can easily progress into pneumonia. We went to see our family doctor this afternoon and he gave us meds that should knock the socks off any infection. Hopefully, we'll both be able to once again breathe with our mouths closed.
Many, many thanks to Patricia Rose for thinking highly enough of me to pass this award my way: This award is accompanied by the following words:"This blog invests and believes in the PROXIMITY-nearness in space, time and relationships. These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement! Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. " Please give more attention to these 8 writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this clever-written text into the body of their award."
It's difficult to choose only eight bloggers, as there are so many of you and all of you are special, charming and meet the criteria!
Here are the ones I finally chose, in no particular order:
1. Mary - MeGardenGal
8. YOU! Please add the logo and the rules to your blog and pass it along!
I also have a quick, shameless self-promotion of my Etsy for you! I've listed this vintage sewing drawer, perfect for a small stash of needles and thread, as well as several yards of white stretch lace and several yards of trim. PLEASE, if you are making a wedding gown, costume, etc. that you can use stretch lace for, take a look! It's beautiful and I'm selling it for only fifty cents a yard! I really need to de-stash my huge stash.
And finally, yes - I've had an Egg-spurt. This is what I've been working on the last couple of days:
This Victorian-style egg with the cameo is the only one that isn't sugar-glittered on both sides.
I still have to decide whether I want to put these on Etsy or in our shop. If you're interested in any of them, email me at Miller.email@example.com - they're about the size of duck eggs (larger than chicken eggs) and are made of fabric (felt), ribbons, ric-rack, buttons, polyfil, faux pearls, and different baubles and bling-y things I have in my studio. The Victorian egg is $5.50 plus postage (no additional fees) and the others are $4.00 each plus postage. I'll wait a couple days before either listing them or packing them up for the shop.
