Another Etsy Goodie..and a little bit more!

My love for etsy continues. I found Silhouette Blue from a link my SIL sent me on her birthday wish list. I ordered the hula hoop cards for her and also ordered the baby card for a new mom that I know. The stationary came wrapped in pretty blue tissue with a brown bow. Megan was extremely nice to work with too. She has some really cute things and the history of how she started is pretty interesting also. Check her out. I think you will be glad you did.




New socks for Ryan! When he was a toddler he had two pairs of socks that I made him. He wore them all the time and would proudly tell his teachers and classmates that I handknit them! He has been bugging me to make him a new pair which I promptly set to work on. I'm not too sure his love of the sock is still there though. I have finished this one and asked him to try it on...but he won't. I think, he thinks, he will hurt my feelings if he doesn't like them. It's not going to bother me at all. I just want to know so I can rip them out and make them bigger. I love them!


I post this flower for the lady in the grocery store today. I went to tell the people at the service desk that the bottle machines were full. When I came back, she had taken my place in line and told me that there was no deposits on the machine. I looked at her with shock..because I could clearly see that there was $1.50 registering on the machine. Money that is split between the boys for gathering all the cans and bottles and placing them in the car. I just smiled and told her to have a nice day...maybe she needed it to buy gas.

I love stationary - almost as much as yarn! She does have beautiful stuff... and now I'm jonesing for that sock yarn, too! (I'd never seen it before! Where have I been?!) Good for you, being a bigger person at the store. I'd a thrown a fit, I'm sure.

Wow, what a great perspective to have and way to extend grace to that lady. she was surely shown goodness when she didn't deserve it. i'm not sure i could have let go of that situation so easily. nice job!

Thanks everyone! I think the only reason I let the whole thing go was because my two boys were standing there watching the whole episode. Not sure I would have been as nice if they weren't there.
