Show and Tell Monday 3/1/09 on Sunday Night

It has been a very busy and productive week. I just love marking things off my to do list and I got quite a few knocked off there. Life is good! Of course, come tomorrow morning, the list will have expanded again. A lot of what I accomplished is intangible but I will share the items that I can!
First on the hit parade this week, I felt like painting. Here is a set of spring time flowered mugs for your coffee, tea or hot cocoa. Can you tell I cannot wait to see something bloom around here? As I sit waiting for the blizzard of '09 to hit tonight, ugh!

Then I had some fun with an idea that my friend, Marie of Savon Marie had given me. It was supposed to be up on Friday but life got in the way again. Here is a cute little sachet doll all decked out in a linen skirt carrying her own tussy mussy. I think she's awfully cute and filled with lavender she smells delish too. She would be pretty on a night stand or bureau. I think being close to the bed would be terrific so you can get the aromatherapy benefits of all that lavender when trying to relax and go to sleep.

Bringing up the end of this parade is this poor deflated rabbit. He won't be deflated long, but I just didn't get him stuffed yet (and can't decide which scent to add to him, I don't make carrot potpourri). His linen brother will be up this week as well, check out the Holiday du jour category on my website.

For all you folks who are able to start planting in the very near future, don't forget to get a packet of pennyroyal seeds. Planted close to your house, it repels termites - and a packet of seeds is so much more reasonable than an exterminator! Mine comes back every year but, to be honest, I really don't know if it's supposed to. I'll just accept it as a gift.
So have a wonderful week everyone,

Pat., I can't paint and I am always in awe of those who can. Your mugs are gorgeous. I love the deflated bunny too. Does a pennyroyal need sun, because I don't have any - due to trees. It is snowing so pretty here right now. This probably won't get to you till after breakfast. Pink Hugs, Tedi

Wow Pat the mugs are beautiful, the sachet just perfect and the bunny, although a bit thin at present will be great.

I love list too, satisfaction to cross off and exciting to add more items at the start of a new week.

Thank you for sharing

Pat, your mugs are beautiful! I wish I could paint. I've never heard of pennyroyal, I'll have to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

Pat you are an incredible painter! I tried a "one stroke" class once. I made a butterfly. It looked like it got smashed on the windshield of a car. A painter I am not. Your work is lovely. You have so many wonderful talents my friend.
bunny hugs,

Hi Pat,

The sachet doll is absolutely too cute! I need to constantly renew and make my list of things to do as well, so that I don't forget!
Have a great week ahead!
