Staying in For the Next Few Days

Jake has the right idea! Stay in bed and rest, that's what I will be doing, well maybe not spending the day in bed, but not leaving the house unless I have to. I had to leave this AM to get special cat food for Luigi, my Mom has him and he has digestive issues. (which is why I can't keep him with all of my other kitties) and to get prescriptions for Mom and Dad............ well of course it was icy and I fell, AGAIN. My second fall in a few weeks. I am really hurting, nothing broken or sprained, I'm just sore, feel like I've been beaten. So maybe I can do some crafts or rearrange some more. (small stuff only) This is the top of my bureau, I am trying to "lighten" things up. I love my old medicine cabinet.

woven glass jewels

I wove a necklace of czech, vintage, and other various glass beads, as well as a few pearls. This is similar to one of the ones I made for the pay it forward. I just thought that I might like to have one!

I have been busy cleaning, rearranging, and purging! I dug out my depression glass and vintage glassware and decided to display it in my kitchen. The green depression glass is something that I have been collecting for ages, I decided that I might as well use it, such a pretty shade of green! The crystal clear saucers and ruby red cups were my Grandmother's, as well as the little blue dessert cups. My Dad told me that she would save her pennies and buy a new cup and saucer when she could. They were inexpensive pieces from some sort of a 5&10 store in Brooklyn, but they were poor in those days. So I know she treasured these, as she worked hard to get them, I remember them displayed in china cabinet when I was young. So here they are now in my kitchen, i love how the colors just brighten everything up!

Pay it Forward

I am in all day, I decided that I need a day to myself. We are all cozy, Jake and the kitties sleeping the day away, and me with a good cup of tea, in my pj's, finishing up my Pay it Forward items. This is my last gift and I will pack it up and mail it. I am sorry that I didn't take photos of the other things that I made. This is a wand that I already made and I finished this mini rattle to go with it. I really love making the rattles, I love picking out colors and buttons and sewing them up!
