It's funny how in blog land you can feel connected to people you've never met. I have found some extraordinary artists and craftspeople during my 7yrs of blogging. I've read really good books and articles written by authors I've met in blog land. One of the craftspeople I've known for a few years is truly gifted with her crocheting. I received a lovely gift in the mail yesterday and I just have to share with everyone how fun and cute and...as my Granddaughter used to say when she was little..."Those are "tozy" YaYa"! Of course she meant "cozy". She would be totally correct in this case. My blog buddy Deb from Poetesswug sent me these cuties.
First off, I love the colors she picked! The cute little buttons are really pretty and make them more than just "slippers".
Even the soles are pretty! (like Deb's soul!)
Plus they fit perfectly! They will be worn and enjoyed with much gratitude. Thanks so much Deb for your gift. I feel so unworthy! If you get a chance, go to her website and check out her many items she makes. There's some really cute boutonnieres that she makes for groomsmen in any color you'd want (it is wedding season you know!) And her hats are adorable! The weather turned from very soggy to beautiful. Sun that made the cooler temps feel perfect was the order today. Even though I did make it outdoors this afternoon for some garden cleanup, I was indoors doing a little spring cleanup. I do love to clean carpets so the living room had it's Spring fling today. Also, I made a lovely key lime pie. (yes, I used real key limes!)
Notice that I didn't put limes all the way around? Well, I knew the pie needed to be taste tested to make sure it was as good as it looked. Trust me here....Yum is the word! I also made a Texas sheet cake. Tomorrow we're going to cook some ribs and have a little celebration for my son Phil who was promoted to manager at his work. Good job Phil! The weather is going to be sunny and warmer and a good finish for a lovely weekend. Hope your weekend was fun and "tozy"!
