Hi ya and Hoppy Friday! For those of you who are new to following my blog, (hello and welcome) every Friday is Hoppy Friday. I list several things from the week that made me happy and I was grateful for. I invite you to share here too.
So, this week happiness was...
a really, really cool piece of original folk art!
My mom found this piece in an antique shop in NC. I loooooooooove him! He's made from some sort of paper clay or paper mache'. He's pretty big, around 17" long. I'm going to hang him in Bunnyville. I think he's pretty funny with his worried look on his face. Maybe he got stuck in that carrot because he ate so much of it his belly got fat. hee,hee,hee.
Next, happiness is getting Christmas cards from dear friends. I know many of us now send e-cards, but there are certain people who still send me real cards and it just wouldn't be Christmas without them.
Enclosed in one of the cards was this adorable handmade ornament from my friend, Sharon of Vroomans Quilts. Sweet! Thank you Sharon!
Mommy Syl, (Captain's mom) sent me these adorable dinner napkins! I love fun napkins and will use these for Christmas Eve dinner. I use to use cloth napkins all the time, but lipstick, olive oil, chocolate, spaghetti sauce, you name it was always making a huge mess that I could never get out of the cloth. I do put these in the recycle can when we are done with them.
Mommy Syl also gave me this adorable ornament and
this handmade ornament she found. I think this little lady looks a bit pouty. Perhaps she is worried she won't have any friends on the tree.
I shall put her next to Jingles. Jingles was made for me by my darling friend, Anita of Castles, Crowns and Cottages. Jingles is always smiling so I know he will make fast friends with our new lady.
Finally this week, I am happy because my two snuggly little bunnies love me so much. They always come up to me, put their heads together like this and wait for me to pet them. I usually lay down on the floor and we have a group snuggle. No matter what happens in the day, this will always make me happy and grateful. Pets have a way of doing that don't they?
So, what made you happy this week?
