The Good, The Bad, The UGly


Yeah. You can all be jealous.  Real jealous.  I asked Zach to bring me such a purse and he did.   He found it in San Cristobal and send me an image to be sure I liked it.  I LOVE this purse.  Mexican leather goods are amazing.  I can guarantee you this will wear forever and be even more lovely with time.  My cowboy (cowgirl as I was corrected yesterday at the barn) boots are amazing.  They don’t show any wear.  They are from a trip to Mexico a few years back . unnamed-4

AFTER the barn it is nap time.  I always need a nap when I get up at 6 a.m to get to the barn to volunteer.  This is my nap pal.  He sleeps by my feet.  He doesn’t mess around.  He doesn’t wake me.  He knows, he is the ONLY one of our pride that gets to nap with me.  He always goes under the covers quietly and nestles at my feet.



And it is here.  I give the USPS credit for getting me the insurance check I was entitled to after the you know what was missing.  So I have a new plan.  I’m ripping out my current log cabin, (Not the squares that Regina so sweetly will put together) and I found a new pattern.

It is the Saturday Stripes Shawl.  It is stockinette.


I’m going to laugh as I unravel this you know what .  And  I’m going to sing DONT GO BREAKING MY HEART!!!!   unnamed-5.jpg

  1. I love that purse…what a glorious gift! 😍
    I’m glad to hear that you got the insurance check…even though it’s missing a few digits!
    I have to ask also…why are you frogging? I think it’s coming along rather nicely 😊


  2. Awesome purse! Your Fezzik is a real cutie. Glad you got that check even though as Karen said the missing item indeed was priceless. The shawl will be nice, but I also didn’t get why you are frogging; is it because they required sewing together? Hope your week is going well!


  3. That is one heckuva great bag Zach brought to you! It will serve you well for many years. Love the kitty under the covers pic.. what a doll he is. I’m glad you got the insurance check but that is a drop in the bucket of what it was worth. ((hugs)), Teresa 🙂


  4. That is one gorgeous purse! So I’ve missed tons of posts. Is Zach home to stay or is he going back to Mexico? Well, I guess I’m glad they got your check to you, but it’s still hard to swallow that the blanket is gone forever. So very sad. It’s good to be back in the land of blogging my friend. I’ve missed you all.
    Blessings, Betsy


  5. Three wins – despite the USPS fiasco! Really would like to know how that pkg was broken into —even why! The kitty is sweet. Wear the bag in great health – it’s lovely!


  6. “Cowboy” works. (!) Madeleine is the only of the cats here who sleeps with me. She props up in the bend of my knees. It’s a whole production if/when I roll to my other side.


  7. Thanks for the share. The purse is really beautiful. We are going to look one up for ourselves now. Fezzik is such an adorable kitty. We love when they go under the covers and keep your feet warm on those cold nights. Have a wonderful day.


  8. Awwwwwwwwww…sweet Fezzik. He’s such a good boy.

    That purse is beautiful. I just bought a GOOD leather purse (Frye) and it’s similar in shape. It will probably outlive me!
