noteworthy notes...

noteworthy note #1: i am of jumbly mind of late, i have high hopes my jumbly mind condition will soon be over. it appears to have hung around for quite a few weeks so i am expecting an improvement some time soon.

noteworthy note #2: Our Shed is missing Our #1 and Our #2, i now understand when they say "the silence is quite deafening", whoever 'they' are.

noteworthy note #3: today feels like all my christmas eves rolled into one, for tomorrow Mr Postie will be arriving with my book. not sure i will sleep tonight with the anticipation of seeing my life and my makings, in printed matter for the first time

noteworthy note #4: next week i have plans to pop some sweeties into my shop window, despite jumbly mind condition (please see noteworthy note #1 above) there will be handcrafted goodness waiting for their forever homes

noteworthy note #5: a granny couch the colour of jeweled teal found on craigslist bought tears to my eyes and to my man's. my tears were of pure and unconditional love, his tears were the sobbing kind. the sort of sobs one saves for sobs of despair.


noteworthy note #6: so many many reasons to love a little pesky hound who has pure and unconditional love for all things granny chic, here is just one of the many

noteworthy note #7: my inbox is overflowing with your kindness and questions of late, please be a little patient with me and my jumbly mind condition (please see noteworthy notes #1 and #4)... i am always so happy to hear from you and will do my besty best to respond over the coming week or so

she is busy beavering away on a little 'how-to'... an easy peasy one for a quick crafty fix ~ Tif

Jumbly mind? If I were waiting for the postie to drop my book through the letterbox I'd want to run down the street shouting it to everyone I met. I can only imagine the excitement. (Love the sofa...). Claire

Kit said...

Oh dottie angel, i'm also waiting for your book to arrivé in THE mail. All THE sneak peaks make this girl curious. Sleep well.......

That couch is Granny's Style of the best kind!!
Beautiful colour, and with big armrests (?) to put on a cup of tea and a bowl of cookies while crocheting...

I expect your poor jumbly mind is over excited by the very exciting book. Anyone's mind would jumble if they has been so clever as to get a book deal!
My no.1 goes off to uni in October and I expect I will be deafened by the same silence. Luckily will have no. 2,3 & 4 child to make some noise.

That couch is wonderful! Good luck with the jumbly mind thing..

Natasha said...

Tiff, I have stalked your fab site for quite sometime. It has perked up more days then you would believe. I am so excited about your book and think it is great that you have put your beautiful and unique ideas and pics in print! The minute I am employed again I hope to get myself a copy. Cheers to you and your printed bound inspirations!!~ Natasha

1. I'm anxiously awaiting my copy of your book! I will certainly cherish it and will travel to Seattle to have you sign it--in person. :)

2. I'm super duper jealous of your new sofa! I did find a huge green vintage velvet one that I hauled home. My man wasn't very happy either and told me it could always go back to the thrift store. :( Our joke is that he takes stuff there and I buy it back. :)

3. Lookin' forward to your new 'how to'!!!

A Dottie Angel book i mean..and a pesky hound, and a teal sofa, and a bits n bobs wall, and well, I could say lots of things, but most of all I want.... to say CONGRATUALTIONS Tif!!! Your book is out tomorrow! WooHoo!! How exciting!!

I am so pleased for you! I've been over to Janines blog for a nosey following your link, and it quite honestly looks AWESOME!!

Hopefully your book will fill your shed a little until #1 and #2 are back for the christmas hols?

Enjoy your day tomorrow Tif, and even write down/embroider the feeling of getting that book in your hands at last :o)

Take care Tif,
and enjoy your dance round the lounge :o)

Oh the sofa! Is it extra long as it appears? Mr. Tif's Man may eventually appreciate the luxury of being able to stretch out comfortably on it. And Little Olive continues in Sweet Mode. LO is practicing what is called the "DD Position" in our house. DD=Doughnut Dog

Hang in there Tiff!!!! It will all come together I promise!!! I am off sick at the moment with depression thanks my mind being like mush!!!! So you are allowed to be like this!!!! I have just got a little doggie called suzie quatro!!! I dont know what on earth I did before that!!!

Take a deep breath ... (might help a little).

Shabby Vintage Junk said...

Oh Tif....The sight of little Olive curled up on the round cushion on your new to you couch made me SMILE OUT LOUD....!

....hahahahaha....At least you have a REASON for your 'jumbly mind'....Minds JUST jumbly for no apparent reason....**wink**....!

I'm counting the days until MY Dottie Angel book arrives....!

Cheers from Oz,
Tamarah :o)

sean the prawn said...

Dearest Dottie, I do believe I should take on your note taking methodology as my mind also becomes more jumbly by the day.Yikes! Please look at my latest blog post as I think you will love the house in which we did a photo shoot. Right up your alley so to speak. Am I right?

Anonymous said...

Ah, yes, the sobs of the partner who just doesn't understand... however, mine would understand the joys of a sofa long enough to stretch out on. Even with a hound at one end.

Come on Tif. Tis enough to have endured the general twitteryness that preceded today's GCSE results. I am now bursting to hear about the "printed matters" arrival. The sneek peaks on Uppercase have been titivating but we need more. How must you be feeling you author you?

hjhinz@comcast.net said...

I love the new sofa! Little Olive is so funny to curl up on the pillow. I do think you know that it is a match ot idia's eyes and the beautiful grey and blue wall paper. Wonderful...yeah! I am soooo excited about your book....hubby got me one as I hovered over him to be sure it got done for my barkday. Take a nice rest and some light hand work. Clear up and then all will be much easier. Give all the animals hugs and kisses. It is the granny way. Take care.
