Oh and I met a lady in Town through Etsy that goes to Scotland a couple of times a year. I might have a coffee mate if we can clear our schedules enough to get together!Oh I do hope I found someone with the Gaelic to talk to me with out PAYING for it!

Her photography is amazing and her taste is well, like things I see and notice!

My weird sense of humor and revenge

On a lighter note…

Bed made with white bed linen. Four fluffy pil...

A bed is a sanctuary for a married couple. A place to rest and laugh sometimes.

Be careful what you say to me, I get wild hairs sometimes..

 Hubby had one of his tantrums where he says: “You need to think about someone besides yourself. You don’t ever think about me!”, the other day…

 I looked at him and said “Uhmm yeah, I’m the reason your pillow is cold every night.” It sort of shocked me but he shut up…everyone has bad days…being married this sort of thing happens and I laugh hysterically when he isn’t around…I sort of got maniacal about it yesterday.

Now, I take great care with the routine around here as you know. I make sure that his pillow is placed under the fan around 4 pm so it is cold. He likes a cold pillow and a special pillow case that’s really soft (and covered in roses).

So… Yesterday I got a wild hair while changing his special pillow case and,  put the entire pillow and case in the freezer at about 4pm. Put it on the bed at about 8pm while he was getting ready for bed.

 He NOTICED it was cold this time.

Bahahahahah!

He got the message.

ooobop!

For those of you who painstakingly trace Burda Style patterns from the magazines or for those of you who lovingly trace their vintage or modern patterns to avoid damaging the originals I think I have found a great solution…

Rymans tissue paper roll

It goes under the name of Bleached White Acid Free Tissue Paper and comes in a roll of 25 sheets each measuring 500mm x 750mm and Rymans sell this stuff for £4.99! Though it doesn’t appear to be available online yet, unfortunately.

Up until recently I have been using Burda tracing paper which I have been getting from Jaycotts online, where I get quite a lot of my supplies. It is great stuff and good quality but each pack contains only 5 sheets, size 110 x 150cm for £2.54.

Much like the Burda trace, the Rymans tissue is coated/shiny on one side and matt on the reverse and if you iron it…
