Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

U is for

Unpredictability.
In the mail yesterday, we got a package from Janette in Australia.  It had Cadrury chocolae egs which did not survive untill Easter.  And there was this intriguing box . . .  When I first opened it, I was confronted by what appeared to be a dozen bunny tails. Then I realized they were cottonballs!
Packing material for fragile goodies.

 And oh what goodies they are.  Utterly charming pprcelain buttons of Australian critters.  White and black cockatoos, a kookooburra, kangaroo, wallaby, duck=billed platypus and a koala.















 And this wonderful sign : "Sit long, talk much, laugh often".  Now those are words to live by!
 For Easter, we drove out to the country and picked up a friend for a leisurely brunch.  Here's his front yard.







And here's his back deck.  The letter for tomorrow is V - for Verdure!

    Now how do you make buttonholes to fit such utterly eccentric but charming buttons? What a lovely Easter it was for you despite our unpredictable weather. (Unpredictable, another U word). Alice Lynn
