First up we have a very lovely parcel that arrived in the mail this morning. I'm not one to wait until the moment is just right, and the camera is handy to photograph the parcel first. I'm more the sort that just makes it to the car before ripping the tape off wishing there were a pair of scissors handy. Gosh I love parcels! And I love the contents of them more!!
This parcel was from Pomona who wanted to swap tea towels for one of my jeans bags. Very nice tea towels they are too. Just look at the pretty new ones below. Could you get cuter than those? I don't think so. Please note my really awful bench in the top photo. I really hate it but it does the job and is probably way bigger than most people have. It's also clean and tidy from a wee session yesterday. Big gold star for me!
And with Pomona also on "The Challenge" she went out and found some thrifted tea towels for me too. Also very lovely and I'm sure they will make a lovely bag or two.
And if that was not enough, she also popped in a few fabrics. Very generous indeed. Now did you notice the non ironed and non cropped photos of imperfection? Lovely and homely aren't they? Well that is reality. I'm sorry but I'm not going to get the iron out, even for you.
And all this loveliness was all tied up with these very beautiful gingham ribbons. One can never have too much gingham ribbon in one's good enough life.
Remember this? I finally got the dear husband to help make hangers for the advent calendars last night. One is ready for us to hang on the 1st of December and the other I have just dropped off at my Mother's. She organises a grief programme for children and adults who are going through grief. I thought it would be nice as a raffle prize this Christmas. Oooh that reminds me, I must start organising some goodies to fill our calendar.
Look I even made a tag for it! Just trying to look a bit professional. Funny looking really but it does the trick as the other side has some care instructions on it.
And here is the photo of the day from our house...
A very common scene in the corner of our lounge of washing, bag hook, a cubby house and a secretarial nook. These will remain this way until I decide the room really is getting out of control. But leaving this untidiness means I have been able to visit my Gran, the dentist for two fillings (ouch), picking up my babies from Nana's, eating lunch and writing a blog. See I can't do everything but I did do the dishes before I left home at 8.30 this morning. Now that's not happened in about a week. And I'm completely OK about all of it.
Right, now I need to get the little ones in the car ready for the big girls to have their swimming lesson as soon as they get home. Have a good enough day today!
