Bits and pieces of a day...
when I woke up Miss Twiggley was sitting in the window waiting for me...she gave me this look which means, when do we eat?
Inspired by the very nice blogger, Hostess of the Humble Bungalow I repainted this little stand to hold some pretty china tea cups that have been sitting unused in a cupboard, now they will be handy to use on a daily basis...will they make my tea taste better? I don't know but I will definitely feel more elegant.
I finished reading this book by Anna Quindlen, a new author for me, I really enjoyed it and now I am listening to a sound recording of another of her books, Blessing. It's always a treat to find an author that you like.
I put the final details on a new dress I have been making, I love the fabric, a jersey knit that I purchased online from Fabrics.com. It will be cool and comfortable for our hot summer weather. I already had the necklace which is a perfect match.
Lastly, ever since I read that the BBC was remaking one of the first of the Masterpiece Theater series, Poldark, I have wanted to watch the original shows, so I ordered the DVDs from Netflix. They have held up remarkable well and if you like "swashbuckling period romances" you will love this. I can hardly wait to view the new series when it is aired.
All in all a pretty successful day, now if our weather would just cool off a bit, for the past week we have had unseasonably hot, hot, weather, I am afraid that it means a very warm summer ahead which will make me and the garden quite unhappy.
Have a lovely day!
