This…this is nothin’. Marianella probably turned this out in 20 minutes, for a Halloween gift exchange. Her purses are so amazing that when she finishes them, she sells out immediately. Here’s an example:
But here’s the thing, I love, love, love this purse! It’s getting a little ragged because I use it every single day. And the gift exchange led me to the rest of her work.
I don’t know when I started calling packages “snausages,” but it was before I was married, and he immediately picked it up. I love it when people bring me things, even if it’s practical stuff, like these parts for a lizard enclosure.
Now my friends know I’m not exactly a “churchy” person. There’s the whole bursting into flames issue. But at noon and 6pm, every day but Sunday (Sunday has different times), this church plays a couple of carillon hymns for the neighborhood. The bells never fail to make me smile.
This 1999 RAV4, with nearly 350k miles on it, is my freedom. We are only the second owners, and it still runs like a top. I think it may be one of the last non-disposable cars. I’ve never named it, as that’s not my thing, but I do love it dearly.
I have a healthy collection of stereoview cards. I had completely forgotten about this, tucked away in a keepsake box, found while looking for something else. It is now with the rest of the collection.
