settle down


Well blogger sure had some issues this week .
Time away from the blog led me to a garage sale
where I found these beautiful cups , sigh ...lovely !
I think I'll use them for a bit and then make them
into pincushions , what do you think ?


I'm making pumpkin soup today with the
 ugliest pumpkin ever!
Here's hoping you have a great weekend !

Lol, the angle you've taken this on it looks like the pumpkin is grimacing at everyone! I'd be tempted to stick a couple of eyes above the grimacing 'mouth' and a tuft of 'hair' on top and take another photo of the grumpy pumpkin.
Hope it tastes better than it looks :).

Love a Cinderella story - ugly pumpkin, beautiful soup perfect for this weather. I have a weakness for porcelain cups so I'm sure your pin cushions will be divine. I haven't received your parcel yet but will let you know once I do. xx

Your teacups are beautiful and being a big fan of teacups I would have to wait a long time before I could make a pin cushion out of them. Wow that is one huge pumpkin...my mouth is watering thinking of all the yummy soup it will make and it goes to show it's what's on the inside that counts.LOL!

Crikey! That is ugly. To be honest I thought it was a rock to start with. Hope it tastes better than it looks!!
