over at 'A PETITE COTTAGE'
had a post about
a candle holder and a covered cheese platter.
This idea appealed to me
because I already had all of the components
to create this quick and easy craft.
I was having one of those days...
A day when some girl time was needed.
One of those days that I just wanted to go see Mom.
One of those days that I just wanted to spend time with Mom or my sister...
Someone who really knew me, who understands without words.
My sweet Mother went home to her ultimate healing
three years ago...
And I couldn't reach my sister.
And my sweet husband tried. He tried to listen and
take me out for coffee or go for a walk.
I explained to him that I just needed some 'girl time'
to which he responded, "I'll put on a wig"
trying to make me laugh...
So I reached for my vices.
Thank you, Ana for your lovely blog
and for giving me such a simple creative outlet for a day. :)
My little ones came home from school that day
to a lovely setting on the deck
complete with chocolate fudge brownies
stacked inside the little covered platter on a beautiful base.
It was another day to treasure those
that I do have around me.
Have a good weekend,
