The Yard Has A Fairy!!

I took a quiet stroll through the yard very early this morning to see what all the racket was about from the birds......


 I'm sending you a rose for each day of your week...

Happy Monday to you All



Wishing you  a Terrific Tuesday



Wonderful Wednesday My Blogging Buddies....



Thankfully Thursday - come on weekend....:)












It's Arrived.... Finally Friday For Us All To Enjoy (Friday @ 5:00 is my favorite time & day)........Hey????
What about the last two days of the week? -

Well, guess we'll all  just have to make through the week before you can have your bouquets...

Here's my first fairy.....

I found her on a shelf in an antique store yesterday where collectors pay for a small booth in a downtown store. She was alone - no fellow fairies keeping her company - she's happy in the fountain planter and maybe before the end of the week I can find her a friend.  I didn't expect to find a Fairy in that store, I didn't even go into the store for that reason, but there she was. A small tag hanging with the word "Fairy" like she was just waiting for me to see her there on the shelf - I didn't even want her wrapped in tissue and bagged - I carried her home in my hand directly to the fountain garden. (Man In Black is somewhat puzzled by my attraction) but I'm sure knowing him as I do - soon he'll be adding pebbles, small figurines and trickling water to the "Fairy World".
Until I find her a friend there are ample birds watching over my new little addition to the yard.  She's in need of a bit of dusting off from my garden soil.....but she's so sweet she doesn't even mind -

Have a wonderful day - I worked on the Chubby  Charmer bag this weekend - seemed to do more ripping out than making much progress......is there a special trick to getting the square points to match perfectly? I'm trying to sew 16 blocks together and some points are perfect, others are a bit off......I'll keep at it. I guess the side that has the best "matching points" is the side of the bag I'll carry on the outside for all the world to see:)
