My newest......

This is what I was doing at 3 am this morning.....

Many years ago my sis Lynowl gave this glass slipper to me. At the time it had a net insert filled with potpourri that long ago lost it's scent. The slipper has been empty .... until now.
When we were just little girls...very young... mom took us to see Cinderella.... one of my favorite movies. The theater was selling momentos and mom bought me the slipper and Lynowl the magic wand. Many years past and Mr H saw this adveristed from the Franklin Mint ...

I received the coach that year for Christmas and the slipper and velvet pillow in February for my bithday. Look at the pumpkin on the toe of the slipper!

We did not have a good day yesterday... Mr H did not have a good afternoon. As a result, neither did Zoe. She seems to know when he is ill and then she has issues too. Keeping in mind that she has a brain mass, it just may be that her issues just pop up with his. We finally got the report from the last CT scan. A consultation is in order with 2 of the specialists. This is really getting him down. To be honest, me too. It just seems to never end.

On a more pleasant note...I am almost finished with the "sneek peek" stitching. When you are up early and all is quiet, for me, it is a great time to stitch. Clears my mind.  A few errands to do then to hopefully relax with my stitching and Mr H who is starting the day better than he ended it. Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your Sunday......
