Grandma and Grandson are still sick.
Yes Riley and I are still under the weather. Poor little Riley now has eczema, asthma and bronchitis. Until he was sick this time he had never had any of these conditions. So every couple of days he is at the Doctors. On and off antibiotics and getting lots of different creams to help the eczema.
I am on my second lot of antibiotics but still having trouble with my throat and ears.
Oh well life goes on and we just deal with whatever happens on the day.

I won a great giveaway from Michelle of Living and Creating.
Just look at all these wonderful gifts

See the pretty pendant hanging on the glass candle holder.
Michelle has posted a photo here on her blog of the pendant.
Thanks Michelle


I bought some lovely Cathy Penton charms.
I love them as they describe me perfectly – Vintage Girl!!

Such beautiful charms

Check out her blog Cathy Penton Designs Shoppe– she does beautiful work that she sells through various people. Cathy also has a personal blog called Simple Things Small Joys


I also bought a charm pendant from Dale of Sea Dream Studio

Here is her website if you want to see what pretties she sells in her shop.

Cute on both sides
