Penny's Heart, Friends and you can still scroll down to enter my Giveaway!

I was looking forward to today SO much! It was my first "Non Snow/Non Work Day!" (Well, if you create things for a living, or at least PART of your living, you kind of laugh when people say, "Are you Off today, or working?" ) I don't take many "days off "anymore,,,,I AM either working on stuff for Shows/Customers/Stores OR I'm working at Joyworks!All of which I LOVE, but in general keeps me hoppin'! So, Shell, are you "Working today?"

Today I'd say NO. Nadda. Zip. I had "this" a couple of weeks ago and it went away,,,,didn't get sick. But today, once again I woke up with an ear ache, a swollen gland that hurt and a headache when I tried to look up. Weird. Sinus? Allergies? Or fighting a bug,,,,,dunno. But I laid low today, read a bit,,,,,okay, quite a LOT and waited to feel better,,,,Chicken Soup? Check! Fluids? Check? And rest. Well, I hope I've knocked it out of the proverbial Ball Park once again, as I've known several friends and co-workers that didn't!  Anywhoo,,,,The Snow is gone and I managed to deliver a Basket and a little "somethin' somethin' to my dear friend and Co-Worker Penny's porch today!

I'd been working on some Valentine projects and had a bunch of Materials sitting around,,,,,,,and thought I'd make her something with a neutral themed "something."  I found this handmade paper I had,,, Some ribbons and vintage lace,,,,,,and well, I figured any "Francophile" would appreciate a "Frozen Charlotte" in the mix,,,,and this is what I came up with. (Penny Girl, You'll have to tell "Mr. Bill" That the broken arms/legs are part of the charm,,,,,,otherwise he'll think I gave you something BROKEN!)

One of the BEST things I love about my life right now, is that I have friends of ALL ages. Of course I have my Joyworks co-worker's and consider them all friends,,,,,,,some older and some younger than me. I feel blessed that my "Penny Girl" is one of those friends and co-workers that has entered my life. She and her "Hubbs" Bill,  have  helped me with Shows and Events, and I hope I was a good friend, back when Bill was having health issues. I love and care for them both more than I can say. Their friendships mean the world to me!

And as I type this? I'm waiting for a knock on the door from one of my newer and younger friends, Kelly. She moved in -two doors down from me recently. We walk dogs together.  A Golden  retreiver(My Kodi) my Black lab, Shadow and her "Jessi Girl",,,an aged and OH so SWEET Chocolate Lab!,,,,,,,,But more than that, we talk about work, life, decorating, dogs and "stuff." She's in her late 20's,,,,,somewhere in age between my two boys, and now? I can't imagine my life without her! Truly.

Now, I've got to sign out and call my dear little Friend Helen (92) who has been somewhat "snowbound" and set a time tomorrow, to get HER out and about once again! (She fell during the snow/ice even after I told her NOT to go out and "clean up" after her Pom....Mikey. ) She's okay, but sore,,,,,whaddya gonna do?

Blessing to friends, near and far! We can ALL learn a thing or two from our younger OR older Friends!

Hugs, Love and a "Friendly" Bus!

  4. Isabel Marant (sd2012.4.9)

    There’s something incredibly assured about Isabel Marant and her aesthetic that you can close your eyes and see the girl with her just-rolled-out-of-bed hair and minimal make-up with hands in the pockets of skinny trousers, strutting about nonchalantly. That’s the attitude that has given way to a fervent Marant fanbase.
    She also seems to have a knack for turning the naff into new, or at the very least refreshed as she honed in on a Western frontier theme that resulted in embroidered yoked shirts, skinny trousers with gaucho curl patterns and cowboy boots. She worked elements of Little House on the Prairie into Edwardian lace dresses and casual shirts. Laser-cut leather and studded mini dresses created the harder and more decorative pieces in the collection.
    Still, the silhouette hardly wavered from her tried and tested cropped skinny trouser, the tucked in shirt and pointy pumps as well as a sprinkling of those quilted jackets and satin bombers. Marant gets away with simply changing up the motif because she’s well aware of what her girl wants from an Isabel Marant piece of clothing. Everything has to look like there was minimal effort involved in an ensemble, which is why Marant didn’t try to fix something that clearly wasn’t broken.

    A number of people claimed them to recommended most of these trousers with Elle Macpherson. Many people imagine that this Isabel Marant trousers accommodate Drew’s model wonderfully along with the wrap take dye is going wonderfully having the woman bohemian model, isabel marant willow high-top sneaker although the woman different gadgets produce this costume far too chaotic, in addition to most of these trousers usually are great independent in addition to work better target on the costume! It's possible there're suitable, although just about every male possesses his or her hobbyhorse, When i however desire most of these Isabel Marant trousers with Came Barrumore in addition to the woman attire is perfect i believe.
