It wasn't on my to-do list...

to get sick and spend all of my days off in bed. That's exactly what happened though. I seem to be on the mend, but I'm definitely not 100% quite yet. We're gearing up for Valentine's Day where I work because as you can imagine this is always a biggie in sales for the flower industry. So, me getting sick right now? Not good at all. I'm hoping that taking an extra day to stay at home to rest will have me ready for the long hours ahead this weekend.

Look at the sweet gift I recently received in my mailbox from my friend, Dianne. It's a tea wallet made in the cutest teapot fabric! ( I apologize for not having figured out the new system I'm using so that the photo would be right side up....)

Inside the tea wallet, there's room for at least 4 tea bags. Dianne knows how I love tea and wisely knew I would use this gift for toting tea to work. Thanks Dianne!
Okay, I'm off to get some more rest. I must be well by Friday.
Wishing you all a Happy Valentines' Day! Make it special.

Velvet Beret

Purple velvet is rather eye-catching on its own, but when paired with some Kaffe Fasset print, you can't help causing people to take a second look. At least that's what happened to me when I wore this new creation to work.

I'll be making more berets, but I'll likely fiddle with the pattern a bit more. I'm thinking I like a beret with a bit more crown to it. This one garnered compliments mainly due to the fabric pairing, plus you can't help but feel adventurous when you're wearing purple velvet. LOL

I'm sure you can imagine that I'm gaining a reputation as a frequent hat wearer. It seems to have become my 'signature look'. I didn't start with that intention. A hat seemed like a easy way to camouflage bad hair days (and um...hide the grey hairs that seem to be multiplying to no end...;o)

Today's fashion tip: wear a purple velvet beret and no one will be looking at your grey hair. hee hee
