My sis-n-laws came for a visit last week. They brought this incredible puzzle!
It's made in the USA and is actual cut wood!
I will admit, we were addicted to putting it together. It was a true challenge and so much fun.
This is what the back looks like. Can you see all the other shapes in it like the octopus, starfish, turtle and sailboat? Isn't that cool? I highly recommend this company if you like to do puzzles. We are going to pass them around through David's family and then to our friends. I already have my eye on one to get David for his birthday in May.
I only have one week left of my "Within an Inch of my Life" project. I can't believe it is coming to an end. I've had so much fun!
Here's a few more of my inchies. I did one for the puzzle.
Then I did one for our sick little cottage. Our foundation was falling and we had to spend $10k to have steel peers put under the house. Of course, insurance won't cover it unless it actually falls down and you can't live in it. Don't get me started on that.
The right end of our house was then leveled as that had fallen the most. It was crazy watching the 2" plus gap under the baseboards go away as they lifted the house. I would much rather have spent that money on enclosing our screened porch! Poo!
This next inch was for International Women's Day.
I'm proud to be a strong, independent woman. Me at age 9. Hated dresses then, hate them now.
This is a note my friend, Janet Melanson, left on my Facebook business page.
"On this, International Women's Day..you are a great example of an awesome internet/blog personality..who champions independent design, caring for bunnies and all wildlife, and being an example of one of the best women of our time.. well done you!"
I will admit, she brought me to tears with that note. Sometimes people just don't know how much kind words can mean to someone. That was a huge hug for me that day when I needed it.
Speaking of traveling and meeting friends, my passport finally arrived! I'll be going to England in October to see Sallieann and to finally meet Jules in person!! My best friend, Beth, is going on this adventure with me. We're sooooooooo excited!!!
Well, that's it for this week. I'll see you back here next Thursday instead of Wednesday. Have a relaxing weekend!
Light, love and hugs,
