Hello peeps. I'm joining in with Annie at A Stitch In Time. I hope everyone has had a great and creative week. It's been hot here so I've taken a break from knitting. The wool is almost felting as I knit!
My Friday Smiles this week aren't really from this week. A few weeks ago I celebrated another birthday. This translates into a year closer to retirement! Nikki from Graphix and Design and I share the same birthday. She's been so very generous and I've been lacking. This year she sent me an extra WOYWW ATC that she made and this beautiful colored card.
She also sent me this hand beaded mandala. Isn't is gorgeous. I think I might string it on some fishing wire and hang in front of my bedroom window. Then I'll see it every morning when I wake.
Last year I was really spoiled. She sent me a painting she created and it goes so well with my decor. I have it in my living room so everyone that visits can enjoy it. Isn't it funny that the colors in her painting match my wall color so well!
I also received a very sweet card from Darnell! You can visit her HERE.
Inside she inquired about my retirement. I just might have a date - July, 2018. YAY.
Special thanks to these wonderful ladies! They definitely have brought many smiles to my face. I still have the cards on my mantle!!
