A Tussie- Mussie to say Thank You!


a small bunch of flowers or herbs.
a cone-shaped holder for a bouquet.

I made this tussie-mussie while I was out in the park with my husband, in one of the rare moments we are together now. It was so special and so inspiring, that I wanted to dedicate an entire photo shoot to it.

I thought I'd share this beauty with you too- violets are gone for this year, but these photographs will last, like deep and sincere love and friendship that never fade, even in harsh conditions.

And here is a self portrait of moi with violets. Do you remember my photo with violets? Now I have an updated one ;)

Thank you for all your nice, kind and caring words on my last post. I appreciated and cherish each one, and as always, I do my best to return visits, even if I seem to be always very behind.
I am much better with hives, and my surgery has been scheduled for the end of May. Honestly I was shocked because I thought it was something to do in an unpredictable length of time... this means we must wait again in order to have a new nest and our life back! :((( But my hubby and I agree that it's better to have this fixed before venturing in another move. In the meantime we are day- dreaming ... and I am somewhat envious of all of you that can decorate and craft like crazy this Easter... but the time will come also for me, with a new exciting beginning. And it will be glorious!

  11. Oh Monica do take care. Have you tried a hand brace for the carpal tunnel. I have heard that it helps. I hope you have a nice Easter and yes by next year things will have settled down I am sure. Hugs and love Sharon and high paws from Teddy. Give Kim a kiss.
