My Auntie Mary tells me it is time for a Grannie Update. So here she is. She's a real grown-up rug now. 110 squares of warm huggly cuggly warmness. Oh I do love you, Grannie!
You can see my cushion there too. Alas no update on the buttons as yet. Soon, I hope. I'm halfway through knitting its twin. Maybe I'll put them on the spare bed when they're done. Good plan?
This is my Japanese haribako. Which just means sewing box, but sounds so much more exotic and impressive somehow. It is just so kawaii, don't you think? Prettiness in practical items really appeals to me. You can see the scissors in the top pic, complete with tinkling bells, along with a pretty little needle holder my sister-in-law gave me for Christmas a few years ago. I like it too.
I notice that in the Grannie pics you can see part of my Asiatic Pheasant china collection. Would you like to see some close-ups? We don't use the pieces much any more, although we used to once, but I just love seeing them there in their cabinets. Like?
So here are a few of my current favourite things. Well, this week anyhow. Actually, my favourite thing right now is my Dad. And my Mum. And my husband. And my daughter. Of course.
But mostly my Dad. This week.
Have a nice weekend, my friends. You're my favourite things too.
