This is my desk of late - tea, fabric swatches, transfer pencils, glass pane, spring hoop and the like. What you can't hear is the awesome music from the Importance of Being Earnest soundtrack. I think I've mentioned it here before, but have I conveyed the sheer inspiring awesomeness of it yet? :D Quite in love.
While I'm here, can I ask what the date is? Oh, January 4. Then my next logical question would be - where is the snow? How can the chickadees be singing? The sun shining, and the ground thawed? In short, the entire world looking as if it were at the Spring Masquerade?
I rather look on it as my own personal miracle. Here I am, romantically determined to live in this tent all winter if I perish in the attempt, and the weather itself is laughing at me, telling me that my mule-headed theatrics are entirely unnecessary. I could be buried under feet of ice and snow, my wood wet and caked with frost, my feet perpetually numb and my furniture frozen from condensation. To tell the truth, that's rather what I, in moments of weakness, was expecting.
How well our God is able to take care of us! Even in the worst conditions our human minds can imagine, He has to power to give us strength, hope, and trust in Him. He has control over every element in our lives - yes, even the weather can work out according to his plan. And when He see fit to give us something even better than we even dared to ask, why are we surprised?
I wanted to share this recent acquisition with you - I've been looking for the perfect one for years. At last, I found it!
The perfect size, the perfect colors. And with the perfect design. ♥
Also, I thrifted this little rotating rack - the perfect way to display my button badges and mirrors! Don't they look cunning with their little shining round fronts and rustic packaging?
I always thought that I didn't care for button badges much - they looked cheesy, and the political campaign and corny phrase stigma often associated with pinback buttons didn't add to their charms.
But I had a change of heart coming, and if that's what you currently think of them as, so do you! They're round. cute factor. They're shiny. major cute factor. And you can put anything you want on them! endless cute factor! =D
Just for fun, go take a look-see at my current collection and tell me your favorite. For extra credit, tell me what you would like to see on a badge or mirror, and your wish might come true! I'm thinking of some fun new designs to add, and your idea might become reality.
And lastly, here's a sneak peek at a bit of my embroidery - as soon as I get some decent pictures, you can see it in full;)
Wonderful Wednesday, friends!
