I've had a nice run so far of challenging myself to taking a photo a day for a year. I love downloading the photos and just seeing what caught my eye on any particular day. Here's what last week brought me...
Saturday-big birthday surprises from my boys. My sweetheart planned an unexpected get away, just the two of us. We really needed it...a reconnect without the boys. It's obvious we don't go out enough. Sushi, music, dancing, TALKING! It was wonderful. On top of our little escape, he gave me this beautiful coat. (Check it out on their website here)
Monday-one of my girlfriends forgot this canvas at my house. She painted small dots in a circular pattern without the use of any guide lines. I'm impressed at how perfect the circles are. She left it draped over a chair in my living room and the odd combination of patterns (rattan chair, reed window shade and brick fireplace) caught my eye.
Wednesday-learned a new stitch that I LOVE! It must have a name, but I have no idea what it is. It took me a while to work it out and have Anna to thank for setting me straight...I got all bunched up in the beginning. It looks like weaving on one side and seed stitch on the other. Hey you knitters! any ideas of what this is called? It is very pretty.
Thursday-a belated birthday gift. Hand made that morning...amazing and melt in your mouth delicious. For you locals, it's here.
To see what beautiful treasures Gabrielle sent to me, go to this post here. While you are there, I insist you take a good look at her site...she does gorgeous and detailed handwork that makes my heart beat a lot faster. I especially can't get her felt succulents out of my mind. She even teaches you how she makes her leaves here. I could go on and on about all her lovely work, but you should just go take a look for yourself.
