It's a holiday Monday here in Canada, and this morning Dave and I woke up and looked at each other and said "What do you want to do?" - the reply, "I don't know - what do you want to do?"
The conversation didn't get any further than that....I went downstairs and made French toast and sausage for breakfast, fed the circling sharks (aka - kitty squad), then I sat down on the couch with my knitting, Dave pulled up to the computer and started sinking battleships... and that's pretty much how the day went.
I did take some time to throw a roast in the slow cooker (I was all worked up about using my new gravy boat - only to discover I had no Bisto...pooh!), but mostly we just chilled.
I finished the stealth project I was working - it's now blocking. Then I started a baby cardi for my cousin's impending arrival. It's amazing how fast eight months has gone by (though I know she feels the exact opposite - it's been one seriously long hot summer for her.)
And an update on my vase....I've filled her with wild roses.....
It turns out some of these ladies are quite valuable. They were made by several different companies (most in Japan) between 1940 and 1970. As mine has no markings on the bottom, it's hard to tell which. Apparently that's not uncommon either - several of the manufacturers used paper labels, and mine is obviously long gone.
It's amazing how many of these heads are out there.... literally dozens of styles.There were different types of finishes, some have hands, some have pearl or rhinestone jewelry... I search page after page, but couldn't find a lady that looked like mine.
I doubt mine is worth very much, especially with her blue nose... but I think she looks just perfect on my TV stand with a nice bouquet of flowers in her hat!
