My heart swells and my eyes fill just thinking of the arrival of our sweet, first grandchild, Clara. We are all so very excited! Emily's doctor's appointment went wonderful and she is beginning to dialate...1 cm.....and has another appointment next Tuesday. If she has not delivered by that following Thursday she will go ahead and check into the hospital to be induced!!
I'm just not so sure if she'll make it though, as she is also 50% effaced.....so we'll see!! Please keep her and Clara in your prayers for a safe and healthy delivery ~
I didn't get anything accomplished in the studio today. Can you believe that?? I felt so run down and exhausted from painting non-stop last week and then the birthday party Sunday then moving half of the room Monday, too....hopefully I will get more done tomorrow.
I had an idea I wanted to share with you though. I have so many beautiful pieces of ephemera, old postcards, pretty images and such that I've been trying to think of a way to display them so I can enjoy them each and every day. I truly believe that we should surround ourselves with beauty and the things we love.
Well, I know you've all seen this clever idea of displaying Christmas cards. Using either a fabric strip or piece of ribbon. I want to tear strips of drop cloth canvas and sew every so many inches down (I haven't decided how many yet) one of those wonderful round paperclips! Then slide old postcards, photos and images on each one. Then I can hang them to display these precious pieces to enjoy all of the time!!!
Now to find the round paper clips....
Just something random, now that spring is approaching....I found the most beautiful little plant online. It's call Diamond Frost and I think it's wonderful!!! I would love to have some in containers on my porch ~
