After Heather Bullard so generously featured my pillows on her blog, http://www.heatherbullard.typepad.com/ (just scroll down a bit on her blog) I received numerous inquiries from all over the US (and one from France!) about my pillows. Wish granted! Even more delightful were the compliments everyone sent me about my designs and work. Really an ego boost! The photograph that Heather took of the pillows was AMAZING.(It's not the photo above, you have to go to her blog to see it.) They really never looked so good. Thank you, thank you, thank you Heather. An additional bonus was getting introduced to so many new blogs. I will soon be posting all the blogs I follow, but right now, I need to get busy sewing!
There is no place like home....off to Texas.
I'll always consider myself a Texan. I grew up there up until I left for college in CA, my high school mascot was the Longhorn, worked as a waitress at the Longhorn Cafe, (served the best chicken fried steak around!), dance the two step many nights at Gilly's at the height of the Urban Cowboy craze and almost got arrested at a Willie Nelson concert because I used the men's restroom (that is a blog in itself!). Yep, a true Texan. I'm headed home next month for my nephew's graduation and my sister suggested I come home a few days early and we head out to the Canton Flea Market. Yea! She also knows of a few out of the way places she wants to take me. Can't wait. Will have lots of photos to post after my trip. While I'm there, I'm having lunch with my high school journalism teacher, Ann Brannen. Yes, after all these years, we're still in touch and I give her credit for planting the seeds for my love of writing and getting a degree in broadcast journalism.
Helpful Tips....Got a headache? Try cutting a lime in half and rub it on your forehead. (If that doesn't work, maybe try a shot of tequila with the lime - LOL)
Need to do that ever dreaded job of cleaning the toilet. Try dropping in two Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait about twenty minutes, scrub, and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action will clean the toilet.
If you have a helpful hint, send it to me. firstname.lastname@example.org
Look for me this coming Sunday at the Flea Market at Irvine Valley College! The following Sunday, I'm at Rosebowl. I know it's Mother's Day, but tradtionally, it's a great day at RB!
I once heard a saying that I will now use to close my blogs each time....I do not know who originally said it but am declaring for copyright purposes...it was not me!
"A day without laughter is a day wasted"....enjoy your week.!
