I had to miss Miss Spenser's Teacup Thursday last week and I didn't even have time to post anything before I left for my quilt retreat. It was a week ago and I'm still trying to get back to normal. My clients had a great time and we have bookings for next November, but it was a difficult event. Lots to work out with my business partner.
Moving on now....it's still fall and the weather is turning colder. Jim brought more wood up and chopped up lots of kindling for me. Snow tires are on the cars, storm windows are on and I guess we are almost ready for winter. A few more things to do in the yard to shut it all down.
I ADORE acorns and acorn decor! I saved this acorn cup and saucer for today as it is one of my favorites.
It's Austrian and very delicate.
Jim bought this acorn needle keep for me this summer in Port Townsend. It's called vegetable ivory and is actually carved from nuts the same way that ivory was carved. Very Victorian.
I found a thimble made of the same material that I didn't know I had. It's just such an interesting medium.
Sweet little thing with it's crocheted holder.
I've gathered a few other acorn treasures over the years. We don't have any oak trees, just maples, so friends have given me acorns.
When I returned home Sunday night from the retreat, I had a package waiting for me from my Tasha friend Suzanne in MA. It sure came at the right time and cheered me up. Her card and personal note were so kind...thanks again Suzanne! I love my treats and our friendship.
What a great little box of magnets...all with a cute little laundry theme and brown!
This is the card Suzanne sent to me...it's one of my favorite photos of Tasha Tudor.
