Miscellany Saturday... 'Cause I Want To

Well, I'm lacking an individual subject to post about right now, so I figured I would just do a miscellany Saturday today. :)  

{1}
More pictures of the goats!
In the first picture Lilly is in front, and Rosey in the back. In the second picture (to the right) you see Baley on the far left, then Rosey in front, and Lilly behind her, eating the bark off a tree. I think you can tell who is who in the next ones. :) They're so cute. Lilly got out yesterday because Caldirwen left the gate open when she went to feed the chickens. It was really easy to get her back in. All I had to do was put a cup of feed in their bucket, shake it so she could hear the feed rattling, then she came running back into her pen for the food. She's such a good little girl. :P

I took Narthea's camera today and snapped some pictures of my map pencils. Then I edited them on Picnik.com. What do you think?

I think the second one looks pretty cool, but I like the first one better, because I love color! :)

We didn't have my party because Momma is sick. We think she has strep throat. She went to the doctor yesterday, but it was a quick in-and-out because they were just working her in. All he said was that her throat looked pretty bad and he prescribed her some medicine. Momma has a really bad cough and it sounds painful. I was sick with the same thing about a week and a half ago, so I know how bad it feels. I just pray that she gets better soon 'cause I hate it when Momma gets sick. :( 
For those who are wondering, my party is re-scheduled for next weekend instead. Hopefully everyone will be well and we can have it! :)

This morning I was able to finally make myself a purse. After all that sewing for everyone else I was getting kinda impatient about making one for myself. :)  So after breakfast I locked myself away in my sewing world and made this:
Isn't the fabric just darling? Oh, I love it!! The little bird and the branch with tiny leaves on it.... *sighs* I'm very pleased with my new purse. :) You can't really tell, but there are brown birds on the straps. You can see two of them on either side in the second picture, but you can't really tell what they are. lol :D

After my former pair of sunglasses finally gave out, at last I have bought another cute pair.
I love sunglasses. I would stock up on them if I could. I mean, I can, but I'd rather use my money on things other than a dozen pair of sunglasses. lol Plus, these babies are cute enough to satisfy my inner love.... for now. :P

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! :)

Lindsay said...

Awwww, I'm so sorry your mom is sick, Eldarwen! I'll be praying that she gets better *very* soon! Give her a hug for me, okay? <3

Oh my goodness, your purse is just darling! That fabric is precious. Mind if I ask where you got it? ;)

And your sunglasses are too cute! I love sunglasses too, but like you, I usually just have one really cute pair. :D

I hope you're having a great Saturday!!

~ Lots of Love & Hugs,
Lindsay <3

Eldarwen said...

Elizabeth, thanks so much! Yes, I saw that Bree was having a giveaway. I checked it out, but I've already won a free makeover by Awel, so I didn't want to enter and possibly take the prize away from someone else. :) I hope she has fun with the giveaway, though! Hosting giveaways is awesome!

Tay, haha, thanks!! :D

Lindsay, I will. I'll do it right after I publish this comment. :) Thanks! I got the fabric from Fabric.com. *wink* ;D Yes. I especially love sunglasses because my eyes are blue, and the sunlight hurts them and gives me a headache sometimes. So, I always make sure to get dark-tinted sunglasses that are absolutely adorable at the same time. ;D

Love,
Eldarwen

Gwenea Zestia Binn said...

Cornet Crazie said...

Wow Eldarwen! I simply love all of the photos, especially the ones of the colored pencils.

Hope your mom gets better! I've had strep before and it NO fun. :P Having a lot of honey will help it though :)

Eldarwen said...

Anne, yes, you should post a picture! I wanna see those! ;D

Cornet, thanks! Yeah, strep throat isn't fun. Oh yeah! When I was little my mom would make hot tea and pour a bunch of honey in it for me to drink. I probably faked being sick a couple of times, just so I could have it. lol :D

Love,
Eldarwen

Haley said...

I hope your mom gets better soon!

I love the way you edited the pictures! I like the first edit a little better than the second, but they're both really neat! :)

The purse you made is so cute! I love the fabric!

Lots of love,
Haley

Amanda said...

Great photos! I'm also addicted to sunglasses. :) And I absolutely adore your purse!

Hope your mom feels better soon!

(Also, you won a prize in my giveaway!)
