"Makes Me Happy Monday" number 42.


Happy Monday everyone, I hope your day is special. Today at Kainga we will be celebrating Bonnie's Birthday. Bon has requested a roast for tea. Her usual Birthday treat. Best wishes for the coming year Bonnie.
I am happy that yesterday I did surgery on Daisy. She is just fine now that she has her stuffing. I ran out of stuffing but used pieces of wool wadding left over from the sides of quilts. I cut these into small pieces and this did the job perfectly.

Now some of you commented on the wirework we have at the front of our home. We had been hunting for a piece that had roses in it for a couple of years. Each shop, emporium or garden centre we went to we got the owners to check there suppliers to see if they had any. No was always the answer. There were lots of lizards frogs etc. We even had one booked to be made up by a lady. She was at some markets we went to. We gave her our email phone number etc and told her what we wanted. Heard not a thing from her so decided to ring, the phone rang out and then the next time it was disconnected. Gave up on her. Though her products did turn up at the markets a year or so later!! Though someone else was running the stall. A bit of a con-woman I think.

Anyway one day we were at Better Pets and Gardens in Midland looking to see what chook food they had. Wandering around the store, it is a lovely store to wander there in front of us was the wirework we now have on the front of our home. When we took the wirework to the counter the young lady admired it and we said we had been looking for a rose one. She quickly commented that now we have bought this one we would fine the right one soon. "Out of the mouths of babes I say" A month or so later I was doing the usual thing, calling into Bunnings on the way home and right in front of me was this wirework of Roses. I was so happy to see it. It is now leaning up against the wall out the back. I must organise a more permanent home for it.

I was happy to receive The Versatile Blogger Award from Nat. Thank you Nat.

Now my job is to pass it onto some Versatile bloggers. I would like to pass it onto everyone,so please take it and pass onto other bloggers. Surprise a blogging friend.Though I would like to pass it onto these bloggers especially,
Tarnyia , Jane, Roseanne, Pauline,Terri and Paula. I understand if you don't want to accept the award as some bloggers seem to decline these awards.
Happy Monday everyone.

Happy Birthday Bonnie. Hope you had a wonderful day. What an adorable bear. I have a pattern that I bought many years ago and I keep pulling it out in hope of one day to make one. Yours is very pretty and love the embroidery on it. What a beautiful wirework. They are a nice touch to any garden. Have a great day Bev.
