The Flu and Misc. News..

I'm back after being away from the computer for a few days with a bad flu forgive me if this posting is rather screwy as still not feeling myself..Monday I will post and share all the swaps I have received..

A couple close up pictures of turkeys for your projects..

More postcard art for you to use..

Last week I received this fabulous 'Black Bunny' from Lori Ann Corelis she makes the most wonderful mohair bunnies , bears and other critters... and after years of adorning them in magazines and seeing her at shows ,well I got my 'first' one and hope more to come..I promise to give them a good home!

Just had to share we both have green eyes..isn't he the cutest little bunnie!? He's soft and floppy with weight to him..

Bought more Thanksgiving postcards on ebay!

Last week we went out of town to shop .[hmm.. think thats where I caught my flu].. got local cranberries and goodies in Wisconsin, our new bathroom vanity from Home Depot, and some clothes shopping at grandson said he wanted a 'awesome shirt' yikes! but found 2 ..and of coarse some cute outfits for our grandaughter too.. plus a couple others treats for them..and could not resist this cute jammie set for me from 'Vera Wang', just love the edging on the neckline hems and pockets so cute and a really neat little hook that the tag is attached with..will use on a swap project... well thats it for now..time for some med and back to bed.. Thank you all for the sweet and kind comments..

Hello Debra,
Fabulous goodies again, especially that black bunny, he's adorable!
I have a nasty flu every autumn but this year I haven't. Perhaps it's because my husband (!) bought a juice machine and makes fresh juice from apples (they are basic) other fruits like grapes or pears and some vegetables like carrots or broccoli every single morning. Of course I don't know for sure, if it is this vitamine bomb is responsible for not having got the flu (yet) but it's a tasty breakfast too! Hope you are on the mend now, in my opinion such a flu takes more or less three weeks :-(
Take care, don't push things, or you'll punish yourself, have a great Sunday!

Thank you for sharing the have the most amazing collection. Hope the bunny helps you recover and get back on your feet.

Oh, another thank you as well. I started using the dish detergent in my clay as you suggested(I am being rather generous with it) and it is working beautifully, plus I don't feel like I have been working in concrete at the end of the day!!

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

I hope you continue to feel better. There are some wicked flu bugs going around. I always love to see what photos you put up next. The postcards are fantastic, and the Bunny is precious. It matches my eyes also, but your eyes are just a mite younger than mine. Have a wonderful evening.

I hope you're feeling better now and didn't hurt yourself too badly in that fall - you did well to stagger to your keyboard. I tend to just bump into things and collect bruises...

I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know how much I have enjoyed looking at your website over the last couple of years, and how delighted I was to discover you had a blog too! It's a total pleasure to read. I have given you an award (one can never have too many) if you'd like to come to my blog to pick it up. Hope you like it - I think it'll look well on your page! All the best, Susie
