What Does it Mean?

Many years when we first started out with mobile phones and texting there was two camps. Both used the acronym 'LOL' in their messages but it meant very different things. You probably know at least one of those meanings, used it too. It's everywhere still. But there were whole communities using it completely differently. Over... Continue Reading →

Vintage Buttons

Last summer I was working on a knitting project and I needed buttons.  Lots of buttons.  Preferably cute ones.  So I asked around my friends to see if they had any they could donate.  One friend gave me a box full of buttons; unfortunately most of those were way too big for what I was...

Together Together.  It's a... Continue Reading →

Apologies and an ABC

I've been very quiet the last week or so I know.  Sometimes the real world clamours for attention too!  Sometimes you just have a bad week where there's nothing creative simmering in your beleaguered brain cells.  (I think I have a few of those, honestly).  Sometimes you just have a bad week where you feel...

Real Friends Don’t

Real friends don't just stick around for the good times. Real friends don't just call you when they want something. Real friends don't get embarrassed about being seen with you. Real friends don't help then complain about how much you put them out. Real friends don't wait for you to call them. Real friends don't... Continue Reading →
