so i am now the one that is sick. zoey is well. arek is well. i have a virus. yuck!! the intestinal kind….i read online that there is no such thing as a stomach flu. as a matter of fact…intestinal viruses are just that….a virus that takes place in the small intestines i think i read….not the stomach. SO WHY DOES MY STOMACH HURT SO DARN BAD???? i haven’t eaten in 3 days. three days are like cat years for me. each one represents at least 5 years!! ugh…i also have a very, very painful headache. where does that play into a virus of the digestive system? since when does one’s head connect to one’s colon??? i don’t get it, but i do know i hurt. my teeth hurt. my eyes hurt. my legs feel like jelly and i haven’t eaten in what did i project????? uh 15 years. and yes….that include COFFEE. geeze… i have spent 2 days in bed and my house looks like a dr. suess book, but whatever. i just want to feel better. i want my heartburn to go away and all my aches and pains. maybe it is a sign that i need to eat better or wash more hands more often or something. with all the junk i handle, you would think i’d get tetanus before i got a stupid non stomach virus.
well….it’s okay. the perfect antidote today was a fabulous and VERY, VERY gracious junk run from my junkin bud, crafting bud, and sewing extraordinare….CINDY. thanks cindy for all those goodies. if i didn’t seem too over joyed, blame it on the energy and junk appreciation zapping virus that is sucking the very creative love for all things vintage and fabulous out of my body. I LOVE WHAT YOU BROUGHT. can you put a price on junk???? i guess not. i asked cindy for the total price i owed and she said FREE. she said the price of friendship, listening, bickering, swapping of other great junk and just the overall excitement i may get from creating something great out of cast off what nots that she had hangin’ around was enough payment for her. THANKS. that is payment enough and that is a gift. seems like nothing is free anymore.
i not only got some great junk, but yet another sewing lesson. okay cindy…after you left, i tried tonite to sew a little purse for zoey and the NEEDLE BROKE. where have i failed? i’m like an elephant in a room of swans when it comes to sewing. i just break stuff.
did manage to pull off this pillow…..well, cindy did. i sewed on the buttons. how hard can this be???? i just want to make some quick pillows. i will get there…i will get there.
cindy also brought me this little lovely. she’s all pink and shabby…torn and worn and ready for some new love…
i got this fabulous pink candle. i love the gold mixed in with the pink. it is too pretty to burn. you know those kind of candles. they were especially popular in the 70’s. i had a unicorn candle, a pig candle, a pink dragon candle…..all too pretty to burn. i didn’t understand the candle thing? why not just make statues instead? okay…i’m off track.
this pretty little plate….
pretty hand painted cards….these are great!! i plan to make tags with these.
wooden hangers….always a hit with me.
tons of stuff to paint white above and below a suitcase filled with cast off what nots…..what is in there????? i don’t care. it was FREE. i will take it!!! is that liquor???? i know cindy….it’s not, but it would make a great story…
sweet doll that zoey claimed….
the best egg napkins from germany…..
there is more, but this is all i could squeeze in tonite……i need to go rest. ron….look at arek’s long ole hair. CRAZY cute long. like a 1970’s cute long. it’s tough having a boy with long hair. i have to schedule in hair washings during the week and it’s drama….just like a girl….i have to wash, listen to the crying, then condition and listen to the crying. oh well….it’s worth it. it’s the price to pay for serious hair.
you all have great night!!! kaye…if we ever get stationed together again, i’m bringing my birds for you. sue from down under….thanks for all the inspiration and support…michelle too….both michelles!!! and the rest of the readers out there….thanks so much for hanging in there with me blog after blog about a bunch of blah, blah, blah…….
time for more vitamin water….
