Many many moons ago, back when I was a skinny beanpole and could turn sideways and disappear, back when my nickname was "Allison Wonderland", "Four Eyes", and others too embarrassing to mention, I met a friend. A charming, happy, always smiling friend, who was there through every crisis, always had something good and important to say, and didn't care if I soaked the shoulder of her shirt with my tears. High school came, she was there for the death of my father, and then we lost touch....caught up in moving on and growing up, we somehow lost each other.
Fast forward 36 years. Somehow I found her on classmates, we emailed, she came up from Florida and I did a post about her mum's quilts [MASSIVE talent]. It turns out, her mum wasn't the only one with talent. Patty, my sweet Patty whom I love like a sister, has opened an etsy shop called Seams From Dreams and it's filled with absolutely gorgeous wedding things.
I think Patty needs a blog now! Her sister has one, here, she's an outstanding bear artist - the talent in this family is amazing. Booh Bears is here.
So if you need some gorgeous wedding accessories, or just want some lovely eye candy, go and visit!
I love plugging my sweet friends. Jenny plugged me today, bless her, isn't she the sweetest to do that? And I can't even leave a comment on her blog to thank her [but we email quite often, lol] because of stupid google. Hers is one of the blogs that won't recognize me, even though I have a google blog myself. Ah internet, I love you but you maken me crazy.
My sweet friend Sue, who is a blogger here in MI, mentioned on her latest post that her apple trees are quite heavily laden with apples this year - and ours are too! I don't know what happened, but we have branches dragging to the ground with apples. Hubby has been making apple strudel and applesauce. It's AMAZING to see. The tree, not him cooking...he does that often. It would be much more amazing to see ME cooking.
A tiny glimpse of the bountiful harvest.
Speaking of sweet friends, I would like to ask you all to pray for my best friend...she lost her mum this week, very unexpectedly. My heart is breaking for her and I feel so helpless. Thanks, my friends....
