I finally have it...right here on my desk and it was well worth the wait! The March Romantic Homes issue... featuring Alicia's colorful home... so beautiful!
My daughter Miranda has a collection!! She is finally showing signs of being like me. Not! She is so her Daddy's daughter.
Have I told you Miranda (she's 22) is truly a Disney Diva Princess... loves Disneyland like no other! Soooo... she is collecting the Disneyland Pictorial Souvenir Guides. If you have any laying around, she would gladly take them! She found the 1981 Disneyland guide at a thrift store a couple years ago... and decided yesterday that she wants to collect them all from years past. I'm just thrilled to have yet another excuse to go to more thrift sales!
Have you seen the Bridal Shower pics on Heather Bullard's blog? Oh my gosh, the most elegant Bridal Shower ever! She had a contest for those that left comments on her blog. She would have a drawing for the Bridal Shower gifts she gave to all her guests. And I won!!! So yesterday a package was delivered to my home and inside were these lovely gifts. I don't know if I will ever open them! They are just too pretty, too sweet... simply delightful. Thank you Heather!
One more thing... my sewing machine died. I am so sad. She was 30 years old and seemed to be going strong. I oiled her yearly and spent time with her weekly. But Saturday, I think I pushed her too far. I was sewing costumes for Tyler's high school musical "Copacabana" and she started to sputter. It was not how I wanted her to go... in a room full of strangers. I would have prefered her to take her last stitch alone... in the comforts of our home. So when she had finally stitched her last, I told the ladies that I had to leave. I needed to take her home. We needed to be alone... give her the dignity she so deserved.
You see, I brought four things with me when I came out here to Phoenix 30 years ago. My 13 inch TV... my bike... my neon green & purple Arctic Cat snowmobile jacket and my sewing machine. All bought with my own money. The sewing machine and jacket are still with me. Don't ask me why I still have the jacket... I just do.
So now, I need to decide whether to take her in or let her go. I will keep you posted.
