To me, February is heart month and I am not taking about Valentine's day at all! On the 25th February 2011, very early on that Friday morning, I was pushed into theater for heart surgery. A week later I went home to recover completely and to start life again. It makes me very thankful for wonderful surgeons and nursing staff and that I could recover so completely to be able to walk good distances again (not what I used to do when I was running, but still, I am to scared to exert myself).
It is so hot and humid here at the moment, I am drinking water by the liter to keep cool. We are in for a good thunderstorm later this afternoon if the clouds are anything to go by.
Anyway, I had to make a few hearts for Valentine's day and they are really looking lovely!
|Spare lilac ribbon makes the cotton and wool heart so light and airy!|
|Some of the cotton and wool hearts with lovely wooden button hearts!|
|Another upcycled ornament stuck to the heart brooch.|
|One of the few olives on my olive tree. Hope you can see it!|
I have this olive tree growing in a pot. It started off, like most trees (ha ha), as a little bitty thing and has now grown so big, it needs to be transplanted into a proper place where it can grow and grow and produce lots of olives. It has given me about 5 olives this year and I must say, oil pressing or export is now totally out of the question!! But, what to do with only 5 olives?? No matter, proud mama I am!
Until the next time, may your days be long and jolly!
