My ruffling of feathers greeted me at the front door this morning, bright and early as I was leaving to buy our weekly food. What is it about me and confrontation I wonder? I avoid it at all costs and really hate to hurt people. After many kind words of advice from friends I was reminded that the truth will set me free. So it did. I could share with my dear friend that lilly pilly berries staining her driveway by our boys throwing them really isn't a big problem in life. A few too many of these incidences did get my goat; and I wanted to shake her up and remind her how blessed she is. Praise the Lord for wisdom, all is done and dusted and our friendship continues to grow!
Miss G and her cousin did some amazing scrap booking today, we found some old pics of when the girls were 5. It was a great experience for them to see me in tears sorting through life's issues - I hope one day they remember when they have friendship shakeups.
Finally we could go treasure-hunting! What a successful hunt we had. My darling boys found the closest and cosiest armchairs in the Op Shop and aligned them together to make a bed come boat. Their imaginations were sailing as Miss G and I collected frames, plates and a french provincial planter.
My dear Grandma gave me one of her knitted little girls who I am naming Sailor Jean. Sailor Jean will be at The Vintage Shed this week if you want to take her home - she is just adorable. Finally my celluloid doll project lifted off as I cooked lasagna for dinner this evening. She has a beautiful headpiece and handmade frock to match! So cute - I can't wait to make some more. I remember my one and only show doll as a child - my mum bought it for me at the Melbourne Show. As I drifted off to sleep as a little girl, she was just so magical to look at. I hope to create an air of nostalgia with a few of these little darlings in another childs home.
