I'm Still Here...

Hello my dear friends,

it has been a full week since my last post already. I haven't been up and about too much since my foot is still very swollen but I did go out on Saturday to one church sale but then straight back home to rest and I was really lucky to find a new treasure on my outing. Otherwise I spent most of the last week either resting or trying to make some new creations.

You won't believe it but I am already in Christmas mode! I know so early but there is a reason for it which I will share with you soon I hope but I will give you a tiny sneak peak on what I have been working on today. As well as that I am working on another new creation that I am hoping to have completed soon and then I will share it with you lovely bloggers.

And these are my newest findings from the weekend before my accident ...

Lots of lovely ...

... vintage lace ...

... hand crochet trim ...

... a beautiful tattered old hanky ...

... two pairs of vintage sewing scissors and this ...

... the most precious rosary!
 I found this treasure at the church sale last Saturday ~ isn't it beautiful?!


And last but not least ...

... my little red feathered friend that visits our garden every day now ~ I love to watch him whilst I am writing on my blog. He brings me so much joy!

Can you see the ground all covered up and ready for the next step? ~ sigh ~ I can't wait to get back into working on my outdoor project which will hopefully be sooner than later!!

And finally my sneak peak for you ...

This is all I am going to let you see at this moment in time.

I am so happy that you have visited Todolwen today ~ it means so much to me! I hope to see you here soon again!

I hope you are well and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
