Tinker Verve

creating with spirit & enthusiasm…often with great results

Lovely gifts to give and receive…

I have this struggle each time I get ready to leave home – there just isn’t anywhere I would really rather be than to be a home.  I’ve got to admit that it’s not a bad problem to have.  It’s especially unnerving to go to the city (enough said!).   So that’s where I’m finding myself.  Traffic, traffic and more traffic – so many wonderful stores (so little $) – and I’m having a great time.  It’s heartwarming and delightful to do a bit of reconnection.

Miss Amber & I were able to exchange our Christmas Valentine gifts.   This non-seamstress friend of mine MADE me this little cutie patootie doll…on a sewing machine…and she did a beautiful job.

I also received this absolutely adorable apron from Miss Trish!

These necklaces are a lot of fun (at least I think so) and I like how they hang.  These gals are dear gf’s to me and I love ’em lots.

  3. Elaine, I totally get not wanting to leave home. All my friends say to me “how can you not get out everyday”. I never run out of things to do. Sounds like you had a great time with your friends. Love the gifts you received, and the necklaces you gave!

  4. Your Charm pendants are lovely! What a pretty gift to give someone in reciprocity for their sweet gifts to you! Your “outward adornments” in the previous post are adorable, too! Have fun with your “Sassy friends” if you haven’t seen them already! I’m a little late in getting caught up with my favorite blogs, LOL!
