First of all.. who the heck wrote my last post!? LOL!

second of all... thank you all mybloggy buds for dealing with my moodiness the other night.. I think I was just tired, sick and irritated.. which yes, does happen to everyone on occasion. When it happens to me, everything in the world (well at least vivis world..) bothers me! And I do mean everything! from the hair on my chinny chin chin... (which one day soon I'm going to do a whole post on facial hair!~ LOL!) to whats on or not on the tv.. to nothing tastes good.. too everyone is annoying... and really.. the only thing that makes it better is to go to bed. and that.. makes everyone here, well everyone here thats married to me, happy!

Anyways...youre all awesome. And I can answer my own question... that is why I blog! because Ive met soooo many great women who have become my true friends! again, some people dont get it.. but ehh.. who cares what they think anyways! lol!

So, just a couple things.. does anyone love longerberger? Well I do and I have a pretty good collection of their baskets and pottery and dishes.. and yes, it is all way too expensive and I havent bought any in a very long time.. but omg.. one of my bestie besties, Brenda, brought the new book in for me today, and now I'm going to be obsessing over these extra awesome freaken cute christmas lunch plates! omg.. arent they the cutest things ever???? I have ot have them. but they arent cheap, and really, I need to have at least a dozen of them.. only 50.00 a set of four. eiy yieyie! but I want them.. (can you see me stomping my feet with my arms crossed saying I want them!! ) yeah.. I want them....
I have a friend who is having her 50th birthday party this weekend. I didnt have a clue what to make for her, but then decided that i would make her 50 needlefelted acorns! I'll find a little basket to put them in. what do you think? cute idea huh?

And for another special friend I made this skelly. she loves skellys, so I think she'll like this one.

Ive got some other birthday projects that I'm working on for some other birthday buds, will show when I can!

AWWWWW~~~ you see Frannies picture at the top, my poor princess kitten was quite sick. she had a pretty serious uterine infection called pyometra. The vet spayed her this morning. the poor baby is resting now. He said she had a pretty bad infection and that he was surprised that he couldnt feel how swollen her uterus was. poor princess frannie! hey.. that wasnt cheap either, 250.00!!! I could have bought 5 sets of those longerberger plates! oh well, I love love love and adore my kittens. you all know that.

Ok.. so chatty cathy is signing off here for the night. I have to go call my flickr buddy Kelly to make arrangements to go to ohio to visit her in a couple weeks! yippee!

have a sweet night everyone.


peek a boo!

Wow 50 felted acorns, what a beautiful and meaningful gift!! they are beautiful.
It's so okay to be grumpy, your fabric pumpkins are beautiful, I really love the plum covered one, the fabric looks so soft and cuddly!

Oh my....what a fabulous gift you are going to give your friend...that Skelly is AMAZING!

Sweetie...that is what we are all here share all the good and bad with each other.

I am so glad Frannie is going to be ok and is resting. She's had a lot of people sending good thoughts for her :)

Sending Love!

The acorns are darling!

Poor poor Frannie!! hope she feels better soon!

I've been grumpy lately, too. Menopause SUCKS!!!

Okay, I should have read this first. Poor Frannie. How old is she. Were you hoping for babies?
I am glad I read that post as I had the same day. Yuck.
Maybe if you have a party for the dishes. I live near the big basket, you might have seen a picture of it on one of my summer posts.
That's alot of cute acorns. You get so much accomplished.
I think you did good at the vet.....Izzy's first visit when she was sick was over $400. We aren't done yet. They want another $400 to pull a couple of teeth, if we can get her healthy enough. Vets are so expensive.....but what do you do.
Have a great week-end.

I love the acorns and so will your friend...You are so talented! I also love longaberger and was a member of the collector's club but it got so expensive I haven't bought any in a few years until this year I have bought a few on ebay for a good price. Your pumpkin doll is adorable too!

You KNOW how glad I am that sweet Frannie is going to be okay! I love your kitty-people soooo much! And your acorns - SIGH! I love all the Halloween pretties you have but I ADORE Autumm things, & acorns are my fave!!!!! Even MORE than colored leaves! (And that's a LOT!) I also WANT some of those Christmas plates! OMG! I mean, who WOULDN'T want those???? Finally, the punky dolls ... sigh! You are just AMAZING! LOVE YOU, Viv!

Oh my gosh, poor Frannie, glad she is feeling better! We just went through the same thing with our Jack Russell but she was so infected, her uterus had expanded about 10 times the normal size, and she showed no symptoms! Our vet charged us almost $900 because he said it was an emergency situation. Have a wonderful Sunday, hugs and blessings, Nan
PS, love the little felt acorns!
