Well it's been a bloody headless week and that's mostly because l'm the unorganised type:-)) but also partially cos my Mum had a mild stroke (the weekend my daughter came home) and can't drive for a month. lt seems that the whole putting her old dog down had more of an effect than any of us (or even she) realised....hence this small stroke. Of course it's prob'ly a bit unfair to "offload" here... blogland should be a place of serenity (and escape) but when you blog about your home, family and life like l do...everything is so intertwined that it feels unauthentic NOT to mention the bigger events that affect daily life....Anyway she's doing fantastically well and is totally enjoying all the extra attention from everyone and all the outings to appointments.....(stopping at the odd opshop along the way:-))
On the weekend there were numerous events on around town in celebration of Spring....since l had to work both days l figured l wouldn't get to see much of them, but l lucked out when l got a late start....only an hour, but at least l could manage a quick whip around the Sunday market, there were lots of interesting stalls and it was so early (7.30am) l found a couple of treasures.
This lovely pink patchwork quilt....l have one similar already but it's almost worn out and the pink is so much prettier.
l had to try it on the bed.....
Then l threw it over the table......Also found the large (euro) cushion..not exactly the same colour but still goes well enough with the quilt.
The tutu painting l've been working on may not yet be finished.... but it matched in so well with the pink theme l've got going on l took a couple of pics anyway.
Made this rosette ages ago with three layers of tulle (pink, white and beige). The cameo hasn't yet been sewn onto the centre...l'm sure l'll get around to it someday:-))
Found at the opshop yesterday morning and just HAD to include it in this post.....Infant Jesus of Prague dome...very kitsch but awesome with the rest of my religious collection.
Infant Jesus of Prague is a 16th century (Catholic) wax-coated wooden statue of child Jesus located in a church in the Czech Republic. It allegedly holds miraculous powers, especially among expectant mothers.(Thanks Wiki).
Thanks so much for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Have a really great weekend coming up.
Til next time,
