First off comes lovely presents from Dina and her little family...The vintage dress at right came to me with the sweetest pair of black lace heels...the dress fits me like it was made for me...the heels would require me to chew off my toes to get into...sigh.
...And from my artist in her home (because apparently he wouldn't sign his name to her card and wouldn't let her sign his) this amazing picture he colored in himself. And if you look really close to the right side of the house, you will see there written...his name. Not only is this a signed piece of art...but his first signed piece of anything! That's right, the first time he's written his name on anything, and I've got it on my fridge...can I tell you that it makes me a little misty everytime I see it? It reminds me of the first time I got something from Rozzie with her name on it...I am so proud of Niko...and in awe, as always of his talent.
...And this totally amazing book of vintage knitting pictures, also from Dina. Can I tell you I was howling and crying reading this? If you knit, you must find this...it is a scream! Not only does it have all these lovely patterns in it, but the commentary is priceless...
Like...who sees these lovely knit chicken outfits and doesn't wish they have kids? I tell you, that's got to be the best motivator for having children I've ever seen...thank goodness I've waited so long to have them, can you imagine if they were too old to wear something like that? What a tragedy that would be!
And...while looking through the book with the Superhero...we came across some pretty wonderful matching knitted separates...I mean, we look great now...but how great would we look if I whipped up some matching fringed vests or ponchos?
There are a million more pictures in there that are equally as wonderful!
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, in case I don't get back to post...
