Playing Arrietty once again and a some awards

I am once again playing the roll of Arrietty from The Borrowers. Do you remember that enchanting childhood book? I am moving a few pieces of furniture to various other places in the house and having fun making new vignettes. I am also working on a set chairs I have that just don't go well with my house. I will reveal all about that later...

Before Christmas, I bought this bust of a girl. I originally wanted to get it to put outside during the gardening season but I sat it up on my chest of drawers in my bedroom and love it there. I think it will stay indoors instead. I draped the pearls my parents gave me in high school around her neck which had been in my memory jar.

I have received two awards. First the Amazing blogger award was given to me by Marie. I would like to pass this award on to Nancy. I only just recently found her blog. She is so talented and her blog is wonderful.

I received the You Make My Day award from three people ~ Marie, Regina and Carolien. These are three ladies that always make my day with the wonderful comments they leave as well as the great blogs they themselves have. I would like to pass this award to Mia as I not only thoroughly enjoy my 'visits' to her in Norway but her comments on my blog always make my day.

Thank you for the awards. I feel very honored.

Ok Heidi, I first want to say, I want to see the post that I happen to know Dagi posted when you were not ready, by walking across the keyboard. I could have commented to Dagi.
Good for you getting the awards, you are an amazing blogger.
Now, as for the bust, hummmmmmmmmm.
Not sure about that. lol
Love you, Mom

Congrats again Heidi for your well deserved awards. I love The Borrowers too. What a wonderful bust, she is so pretty. I also loved the post below about your childhood memories. I had a kilt like that from Marks and Spencers when I was little! When I was at school, my first Saturday job was working at The Scotch House selling kilts in London! I really enjoyed reading your posts as usual.
Did you see Larkrise last night?

Yes, I did by wine while at Biltmore winery...sparkling wine actually. And yes, I love cooking with fresh rosemary! I have two plants outside and on on my kitchen counter. Love it!

Carolien said...

Hi Heidi,

I hope you have lots of fun playing with your furniture etc. I know the feeling of wanting to change things from time to time ... (André doesn't understand this at all; women!!!)
I love your memory jar and the stories attached to them.

Have a great day and hugs, Carolien

P.S. I forgot to ask earlier: how is your BP sampler going, are you enjoying it?
