In Case You Were Wondering . . .


why I’ve posted so little here lately….here’s the scoop!

I was busy making pincushions for my new Etsy shop The Queen’s Pincushion. (it’s listed as thequeenspincushion — all one word — at Etsy.com)

I have written about it on The Purple Sweater and my newest blog….The Queen’s Pincushion (of course!), so I won’t go into details here….but I will share a few of my favorite pincushions with you!

I’ll be making new pincushions and posting them weekly….and my daughter’s wedding is coming up, so I’ll share a few of the decorations I’m working on for her…and whatever other manner of wonderfulness that I come across on my adventures surfing the internet.  See you soon!

All Dressed Up…


Beautiful People….in their beautiful finery.  Oh, to be able to wear some of these gowns… wondering why some of the beautiful ladies chose to wear what they did! ;o)

Mother of the Bride…


Since this is about My Favorite Things…I simply had to share this.  Wedding dress shopping is a Rite of Passage for the mother of the bride (MOTB)….Something we mothers of daughters look forward to from the instant of their birth (oh, yes, we do!)

 

"Isn't she lovely..." (thank you Stevie Wonder"

“Isn’t she lovely…” (thank you Stevie Wonder”)

I think I’ve tagged just about every (positive) emotion there is…and I ran the gamut! At the end of the day I was exhausted, but not as tired as she was after trying on gown after gown…and all of them are so heavy. She went home and took a nap…I went home and downloaded all the pictures I’d taken…and happily re-lived every moment as I looked at each of them (something like 75 total….yes, I did go overboard…and I’m glad!)  ;o)
