LITTLE FUN TODAY
I was in a TJMAXX store earlier this week killing time between a dentist appt. and an eye Dr. appt. who are right across the road from each other. I did not want to go home and then come back again so I went shopping. Last spring Karla from Karlas cottage had a swap with the Alice in Wonderland theme. I was in it and received some really neat tags. We sent in 6 and receved 6 plus Karla set it up as a book with the cover page designed by her. She is a beautiful artist and it was really great. Well what did I spy but this tin and thought isn't that cute but when I picked it up it was heavy. Inside was a mug and a coaster. The whole thing was only 6.99 so the child in me said "buy it". I will take it to Florida and sit in the sunroom drinking tea from my new mug. Apparently they made a lot of different things including a little tea service according to the book inside. That would be sweet for a child's gift.
I am off to Colorado on thurs. morning to the CQI retreat in Estes Park with Cathy K, Leslie E. and 17 others. There are 20 of us all together. It should be a fun time - no set classes or teachers - just us gals and will help with whatever we know if someone wants to learn something. Most of these gals have blogs so it is going to be fun meeting all these gals who I feel I already know. I am flying home Mon. afternoon. It has been 90 in denver so hope it cools down a bit by the weekend.
I have been cooking up a storm for Harv. plus both Sue & Mike are within 10 minutes of us if he needs help. They will be checking on him every day as I will long distance. Just hope our cell phones work out there.
I am not taking my laptop so this will be my last post until I get back. Hugs Freda
