a 'joyful' update today...

i am not here today, i am over here,
hanging things in clusters in my shop window.
how nice, clusters throughout the day.
i am thinking if one saw every day in clusters
it would make things quite nice.
i'll do a cluster of laundry and then craft,
another cluster of feeding the clan, then craft
and so forth...
yes i do like myself a cluster or two

That sounds like a good plan. I can do the cluster of crafting, not too sure that my enthusiasm would cover the rest mind!
Love the cluster of pictures...fabric heaven!

What lovely lappity-lap blankets and bags! What lovely colours! How you can bear to part with these vintage treasures, I can't imagine! I know I'd find it horribly hard to say goodbye, unless its new home was with friends or family when I know I'd see it again!

Lovely, lovely, lovely. Such pretty things and tomorrow is my birthday. Hmmm. I'm thinking, hmmm.
What better way to celebrate than with something dottie, something angelic.

I think life would be better if organised in clusters too. Right now I'm going to do a cluster of worky things, followed by a cup of tea and a cluster of biscuits.
Yep, life better already!

Oh Tif, I so love the begining of this post...'I am not here today...' Love it :o)

I hope your shop update went hoppity skippity my dear. I was looking at lappity lap blanket No.2last night..admiring it's beauty and fine lines, the way it draped down and looked all cosy, when i was pleased to see the SOLD sign appear on the screen. Good, good, good :o)

Have a wonderful day my dear, even if it is a tad busy getting all those treasures out about around the globe:o)

Take care lovely lady,
Love Donna xx

Hi there! I just wanted to tell you that your WONDERFUL book landed in my mailbox today and I had a really magical time opening it. Everything was perfect! Absolutely perfect! It´s like my most prescious treasure now. I smile when I see it on my way to somewhere in the house. I have put it on a bureau that I just has to pass all the time. And everytime my heart jumps a bit and makes me feel happy. :) I love books but this treasure is more than a book. It´s a magic book that brings me in a sort of trance. An inspiration trance. THANK you for this expendive gift. (And I hope my english is enough for explain how much joy this has brought me). Tonight and many nights from now I will read all your words, slowly so I´ll understand them all. Maybe I also will have a english-swedish lexicon by the bed. *** Persilja (Parsley in english)

Tif,
I like your cluster way of doing things--it makes time management more appealling, and just thinking about it seems to fit well with my 50+ brain.

Are those aprons in the pictures? Or bags? Either way I love them and I love your "granny chic" style ;) Seriously! Chickens in your "about me" pictures! Your wonderful! BTW my 4 children talk back to me as well. Let me know if you find a cure for that! I'm your newest follower, feel free to visit me if you like as well!

many thank yous my dears, for the cluster love... yes, life in clusters is the way to go me thinks :)

persilja, you are so wonderfully kind to leave your comment, thank you for saying all that you did, i feel so blessed to think so many feel the same about the book. i do not think one could ask for anything more than someone to see your book as a treasure :)

i'm in such awe of all the pretty things you have made and am feeling more than a bit sad that i missed all the fun. even though i was really looking forward to the event and had it written boldly and flower decorated in my dairy, there was sadly on the day an influx of goings on that prevented me from making it :(
however it is a nice compensation to come here and look at all the pictures of lovely things and keep a hope in my heart that there will be another sale of dottie angel goodness in the future :) xxx

dottie angel said...

many thanks my dear! good news is, i have high hopes for some time around end of January to have more goodies for the shop :)
hopefully no pesky influxes will get in the way next time...
