Really Under The Weather

Hello my dear friends,

what a week this has been! I have been feeling really under the weather these past days now with a sort of flu and/or bad cold and so has my younger daughter. I have spent most of the week at home with no energy, not even any interest to do anything creative. I couldn't even get a thought together to post on my blog!

I did start to feel a bit better yesterday so I ventured out to a huge church sale that only happens twice a year. In the end I only spent $1 on one item and then left for home again.

This is what I bought for my $1.

 It is a real rose that has been given a life forever. It is made by a company here in Canada and they have somehow managed to preserve this rose's beauty by dipping it into a type of resin I think. Isn't it just beautiful?!

I did get some nice news a few days ago. I won the "Mother's Day giveaway" from Tiffany's "The Cranky Queen" blog - yay!!

 It is a beautiful decorated bottle and I am tickled pink - so to say - about it.

I hope you all are well these days and you are looking after yourselves.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  2. pretty rose..hope it makes you feel better! I'll bet winning that lovely giveaway did! :)

  3. Hi Karen,
    I'm sorry to hear that you and your daughter aren't feeling well. It sures seems like it is going around and around this year. And when it gets you-you don't want to do anything but lay around. Praying for healing for the both of you. And congratulations on winning Tiff's giveaway.
    The rose is beautiful. I have something like that that I gave my step-mother years ago. They are amazing. She passed away so it came back to me and it is stored safely in my curio cabinet. When I look at it-it reminds me of her.

  4. I hope you feel better real soon, its horrid having a bad cold. The rose is quite amazing, I have never seen anything like it.
