Lilac & Lavender #FolksyFriday

The first Folksy Friday of February, can you believe it? Hope the rest of the year isn`t going to gallop away this fast.
Can you believe how cold it`s got? Seems like it`s staying for a bit too, with possible snow at the weekend. Brrr.
I wasn`t sure what to put on here until I saw a thread titled Lilac & Lavender. Being nosy and loving purples of all shades I had to look and there were such gorgeous colours and creations that I decided instantly that that would be my Folksy Friday theme. If you get some spare time have a little wander through the shops as they all have so many gorgeous things to tempt you.
Didn`t really do much yesterday apart from shiver. A trip to the shops, a bit of housework, preparing a casserole, stuff like that. Did take a couple of pics. Thought about sorting all my stock... and thought some more. Did a little.
It was one of those days where I seemed to be busy but didn`t really achieve much, not sure why.
I saw my youngest grandson for a little while, he`s so cute, but growing up so fast.
This weekend is my younger daughter`s Hen weekend and they are all off to Centre Parcs from today. It all seems a far cry from when I got married. You went out for a quiet drink and that was it, now it`s weekends away sometimes in exotic locations. Must be nice though to be able to take that time out amid all the flurry of preparations. A time to unwind and have some fun with close friends and siblings.
Makes the wedding seem even closer now though. Eeeekkk!!
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

There I was in the icy morning
already way past the dawning.
Walking on my way to work
looking out for the anything to lurk
in my way, a hazard you know,
making me walk, oh so slow.
Icy pavements to catch me unawares
even as the bright sun glares,
to try and take away the sight,
but I know what I have to fight.
Without care, I know what`s to come,
an ignomious landing on my bum.
Legs flying and hair all askew
with me turning the air blue.
Not for me I`d rather be late
than have such a painful fate.
No striding out today for me
because I`m allergic to pain you see.
So I`ll trundle along and enjoy the sight
and on my feet I`ll stay light.
When the snow comes in a blizzard
I`ve got an idea that`s wizard.
I`ll stay safe and warm indoors
so there`ll be no landing on floors.
Then I`ll watch it come down
with a smile not a frown,
happy that it looks so pretty
as I make up a snow ditty!!

  1. I love the theme of your blog today Linda. Thanks for including my Lilac Weave Book Bag.
    I can vouch for Bojanglies spectacle chains - I bought two from her several months ago and I use them most days - they are great.
    I am very taken with Sew Stylish's Cloche hat - it's beautiful and she has so many other lovely things in her shop. I am very tempted.
    Thanks again Linda for your hard work in doing this blog.
