I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!

I have been away for awhile as I was feeling a bit under the weather.....not fun. I'm feeling much better now:)

I missed my monthly TUSAL post...drat:(

and......I cannot post my Monthly Make yet as it is a teeny doll that I made for a giveaway on my blog A Cloth Doll Maker's Diary.

The winner hasn't received it as yet so I will post a pic once she does.

Here's a wee peek though.....looks like a caterpillar........hee hee......

My friend Rhissanna is having a giveaway over on her blog by the same name............Rhissanna

"I'm giving away a sweet little flowering teabag
(which really does make real tea!)
and a box full of other surprise goodies.
Vintage lace. Wee bunnies
A tiny doll. Little interesting things.
Consider it my Blogoversary treat."

Why not go over and visit and maybe join in the fun:)

Take care.

What day were you born on?

Here is a little fun for you......a very old bit of fortune telling of a sort.....

Monday's child is fair of face
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go,
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child who is born on the Sabbath Day
Is bonny and blithe and good and gay

Go here.......Day Born....and find out what day you were born on:) I was born on a Friday.

I remember memorizing this poem in school in order to remember the days of the week.  I did a bit of research and apparently it was first recorded in 1838 in A. E. Bray's Traditions of Devonshire (Volume II, pp.287-288).

I remember being rather disappointed that I wasn't a Monday child and I was certainly very happy I wasn't a Wednesday child! Talk about childhood trauma for some little tyke....the person who wrote this had a lot to answer for....sheesh.

Take care:)
