another week rolls on by...

hey, look what I got this week... this was in the mail box today - all the way from Stephanie in the USA... YAHOO I won her giveaway recently - how wonderful huh...

I just cannot wait to put this to good use, and get this cute little bag made... we have a houseful of guests for the weekend so it will have to wait 'til next week - arrgh... the anticipation of it all!!

Our house is on the market - up for sale. Have a look here if you want.. So to make sure it was all presented neat n tidy n nice... I just had to go out and buy a new duvet cover..... brighten up the bedroom!

doesn't it look great, I love the poppy pattern...

and the reason that we have a house full this weekend .... could it be that we have a celebration...

yes! Rowing man is turning 50 - or forty ten according to Rosie... (yes he is younger then I am - no jokes about toy boys etc - but oh the mind can wander...)

so break out the candles ..... do I have enough???

and look at the finger - getting better every day! hmmmm need a manicure!!!

have a fun week!



p.s. have just heard from the real estate agent -a few potential buyers for the house when it goes to auction on Oct 6th, wish me luck!!!

Hey Shiree.
Love the bedspread. So crisp & clean. Best of luck on the house. Aren't you glad people are already lining up to see it. Tell rowing man happy birthday from us bloggers. I have 7 more months and then I hit my 5-0.....Tracy

P.S. I don't know if I told you but I'm hosting my first giveaway so stop in and take a peek. And congrats on winning the bag kit!

OOUCH! That last picture is a doozy! Happy birthday to Rowing Man!
I'm going to have to buy the Prickly Pear pattern, I loved it since the first time Stephanie showed it on her blog, it's just gorgeous

Stephanie said...

Thrilled the pattern arrived safe and sound! Keeping everything crossed for a quick sale for your beautiful home. Happy 50th to hubby!!!

Melanie said...

Great pattern from the lovely Stephanie.

Love the bedspread- so crisp -just the right note for the sale. I hope the auction goes well. In the UK auctions usually get poor prices so they are usually reposessions. We're going to stay on the market until we sell but I'm in no rush-the children are happy at school.

Good luck the potential buyers sound promising.

I hope the birthday celebrations go well.

Wishing you the best on the house sale. Our house has been for sale for a year now. We are getting weary and are ready to move on but so far we are still waiting.

Good luck with the sale. Hmm, will you be in Dunedin or Twizel when I get there? When ever that is! It looks like we'll head up to Northland first, then back to Timaru to get married, then head south. So some time after 7th of November.

That finger looks really sore. I was explaining to someone yesterday how lethal a cutter can be. I should have shown them that photo. Love the poppy cover as a poppy lover myself.
