Today I found a blog link up called Thankful Thursday.
Today my thankful would be that for the first time in a long while my whole family was home for dinner at the same time. With my kids being in their early 20s this is far from a common occurrence with a balance of work, study and friends keeping them busy in their lives. That, and I too like to escape for dinner with my husband or girlfriends.
On a lighter note, I was looking through the millions of photos I have stored on my computer and came across this one.
Now I will be the first to admit I’m far from crafty. I love doing it but somewhere between the pattern and my never ending need to tamper with the design (bit like my tampering with recipes lol) something gets lost in the translation.
The history for this teacup hat is I used to meet for morning tea (that ended at around 4 pm after lunch) monthly with a group of friends and we used to wear hats as a bit of fun.. the whackier the better. I designed and made this with some interesting material, little gems, pipe cleaner and a dangerous hot glue gun!!
I thought the quote by Sam Lefkowitz
“When asked if my cup is half-full or half-empty my only response is that I am thankful I have a cup”
seemed fitting , both for the cup and the link up.
I’m also thankful to have found the Thankful Thursday link up and to Rhianna for creating it- definitely worth a visit if you haven’t been yet!
