Anticipation

Someone alerted me to the impending arrival of this design of Carriage House Samplings:

Chincoteague

Chincoteague is the island that Assateague protects from the ocean. It's a lovely place, out of a picture postcard. I was first introduced to it reading the Misty books, by Marguerite Henry. If you have never read these books, with their gorgeous Wesley Dennis illustrations, PLEASE read them. If you have children, please have them read them. It's life-affirming.

I am going to whisper in the ears of the dogs and request this for my Christmas gift. I've been a good Mummy--plenty of tasty jummies, tummy rubs, and toys have been finding their way to the dogs this year. We've gone on walks, and bye-byes. What better way can they show their affection for me?

I hope she includes some ponies. Designs with wild ponies are hard to find. I think I own all but the HAED one that just came out.

I need more sneak peeks. I need to drool. I need to make room on the wall!

Oooh, I love Chincoteague! Not as much as I love Assateague, but I do love it almost as much. I can't wait to see more of the design!

Congrats on finishing up the ornament. 3 already--you go girl! I need to get my big girl finishing panties on--I just hate it so much and keep thinking of ways to avoid the ornamentalizing part of it. Ugh.

SERIOUSLY???? And that's the teaser they leave us with! UGH! It's KILLING me!

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
