How I spent my Sunday...
And now it's finished and ready to be framed! I'm absolutely framing this one. No putzing around. My birthday is at the end of the month and I've told Dave...no jewelry. No gifts. Cash for framing will be the perfect gift.
Here are a few parts that I especially like.
Johnny's initial, birthday, and one of his Varsity Cross Country pins.
Colleen's initial, birthday, and horse charm.
Our current house
Our first house:
That's a pin I bought at one of the CATS festivals back in the 90's. Originally, I was going to put a piece of my wedding gown there, but when I went downstairs with the scissors to decide what to cut....I just couldn't bring myself to do it. It's not like my gown is an heirloom or preserved or even particularly nice. In fact, it's been balled up in the basement for the past 8 years,and before that, Colleen used it for dress-up. But I couldn't make myself cut it. So you know what I did? I tossed it into the washer, hung it to dry, and then put it in a big pillowcase and put it away again.
I'll show you my new stash once it arrives, but I'll show you this purchase earlier because it's coming from overseas and may take a long time. It's Moira Blackburn's Scottish Love.
I think it'll keep me busy for another four years...
