Lofthouse

Saturday afternoon I meandered out to the mailbox to see if I received any mail other than monthly bills and to my surprise, there was a teal blue package. I thought to myself, I don't remember ordering anything because that is when I usually get a package. I take a closer look and see this giant stamp with the Queen on it and I knew, it was from England. 




A big thank you to my friend Anne who has such a fascinating blog called Marmalade and Catmint.  She is a dear sweet person who knew I was doing some genealogical research in the village of  Lofthouse for my cousin Al who lives in Calgary, Canada. She sent me a unique tea towel with pictures of historic buildings in Lofthouse. 






It is such a large tea towel that I could not get a complete photo of the whole cloth. Thanks again Anne. What wonderful photos of the historic buildings, I love it!


I had a special order last week for a necklace to match the bracelet that I had sold to Carol, a friend of mine from our swimming class.
Pink agate on silver became my latest project and she loved it. What do you think for my first wired necklace?
