Azaleas in Bloom

The azaleas and dogwoods are in gorgeous bloom here. I'm so envious of this gorgeous yard that I pass every day on my way to and from work and I just had to pull over today and take some pictures.

I've had some problems with dizzy spells the last few days and went to the doctor yesterday about them. I was so nervous about going to the doctor (imagining all sorts of bad things). Robin came into town and went with me. Turns out I have benign positional vertigo which stems from an inner ear disturbance. Got a steroid shot and I am on medication for 10 days. Bless Robin's heart ... she wanted to pull out her camera and take a picture of me getting the shot in my hip. Said she thought it would be great to post on her blog LOL. Needless to say, I nixed that idea very quickly.

I have managed to get another purse and a larger tote made. Joy asked me to make a tote for her to give as a gift to a friend's daughter who is graduating from high school this spring. Holly is into camo (she loves to hunt). I had some pink and brown camo material and this is what I came up with.

Then I made myself another purse -- this one a little dressier than the red one.

I have been giving some thought to taking orders for custom made purses. I have had several people ask what I would charge to make one. After much deliberation and figuring, I have come up with prices. A denim purse with either a name or monogram embroidered on it would be $30.00 and the larger tote in denim with a name or monogram would be $35.00. If you are interested, e-mail me at designsbynanny@aol.com.

Happy Anniversary to my daughter, Robin and son-in-law, Bill. They are celebrating their 8th anniversay today. http://mylifeexpose.blogspot.com/

I'm going to start work again on my ATC's for Amy's challenge http://caffinatedcropper.blogspot.com. I only have about 7 more to do and I want to get them finished. I feel much better about the ones that I have made since Robin looked at them yesterday and told me she thought they were "awesome".

Guess I have rambled on long enough. Hubby has made dinner and has it in the oven. Supposed to be ready in about 1 hour. I just love it when he cooks.

Luck, love and laughter,

Okay, I'm crazy or I'm just missing posts left and right. I've been here, but I didn't see these posts:(

Anyway, I LOVE that camo purse! Too cute! I'm glad you're doing better, but sorry that you have vertigo.

Does Robin have a blog? I think I may have read about you maybe knocking her out if she tried to take another picture. LOL!! Hope you are feeling better, Thanks for visiting my blog!

I am envious that you even get to see those gorgeous blooms everyday, nothing is blooming here!! I can't wait.

Wow your purses, shirts and pages are awesome! I've just been sitting her watching them run across the screen!

I wish I could sew!!
