Friends near and far far away

Hi there again just a short post today ☺ Whipped up this delish onion/mushroom/peppercorn sauce to have on our steaks the other night with a little salad and was great....really trying to kick some weight off  AGAIN.....wish me luck on that

And looky here, something for me all the way from the great USA!


Such a lovely home printed card

And a gorgeous message inside with a beautiful crochet heart ♥  This has come to me from my dear bloggy friend Teresa all the way from Oregon just a mere 13,000+ klm's away now neat...
She is a wonderful lady, good friend, mother, grandmother, sister and just like me loves to do a bit of crochet and some knitting too ☺☺ THANK YOU again Teresa... She did say some lovely things about me as I sent her a little gift can visit her blog here her blog
She takes fantastic photo's of where she lives and on her trips away and has cute little dog called Buddy...I love seeing the gorgeous mountain Mt go have a look ☺☺

See Teresa I have it hanging in my lounge room off one of my neat mirrored candle holders ♥

Oh and I know this is NOT an exciting photo but I went to visit my mum and her washing machine had decided to not work so at the grand old age of 90 (march 17) she now has a new washing machine and is having fun testing it out on different settings lol 

And  here she is with me and my dearest longest close friend Lanie, we have known each other since birth....same hospital and kindergarten, wonderful to have a friend for almost 58 yrs xoxoxo

And a better picture just cause I can.....I look huge next to these too lol
Well now I might just try and get on with a bit of crochet today and maybe read a book I am enjoying "Call the Midwife" and yes there is a television show based on this book....have you read it or watched the show?
See ya all again real soon xoxoxoxo


  1. So neat to see Teresa's heart in your home, Wendy :-) As she told you, she was so touched that you sent her your mom's knitting needles and the mitts you made, too, and she mentioned it to me when we went swimming on Monday. Seeing your mom's new washer reminds me I need to go empty the dryer! I am so happy for you that you are enjoying such a long friendship with Lanie. Happy 90th Birthday to your mom, March 17th!!! xx

  2. Thanks so much Gracie, some reason an email did not come through....Hope you are keeping warm all those many miles away from here xoxo

  3. Hi Wendy, I'm so glad that my Valentine reached and that you enjoyed it and have your little heart hanging in your home.. that is just so cool that we've become friends when we're so far apart. Thanks again for the gorgeous, jingly mitts and the fabulous knitting needles! My sister is visiting in New Zealand right now! You look very slim in your photos.. and very pretty! *H*A*P*P*Y* * *B*I*R*T*H*D*A*Y*!*!*!* to your Mum! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  4. Nice to see Melanie.

  5. Isn´t the bloggy world inspirational! I love the heart and the gift you received from your far away friend. I made a similar heart this past December for an advent candle holder I was making. Very simple and fun to make.

    Enjoy your weekend!
