lucky - a reminder

lucky day

Wow! Thanks so much for all of your nice comments. We ARE all in this together, aren't we?

Yesterday I had a great day. It was 80 degrees, sunny, beautiful. I worked in the garden, dried some laundry on the clothes line, and enjoyed the first week of free time I've had in a long, long time. Dear readers who work full time, have families, AND manage to craft something- my hat is off to you. I've been depleted, but I'm recharging.

I met a friend in the late morning at my favorite thrift store and came away with quite a haul- I feel like my spring wardrobe is nice spruced up for less half than the cost of of a single top at a store like Gap- and when I got home, I spent some time in the clover patches, thinking about pottery-making.

I've always been "lucky" when it comes to finding four leaf clovers. If there are any in a patch, they jump out at me. I found about 9 in my front and back yards. I made a dozen little "lucky" pieces for the spring. I really like giving these to friends who need a little lift- who are going through a tough spell at work, have been ill, or just feeling blue. I did have to cheat a little with some of these, but by the time they're trimmed and fired, I won't be able to tell which ones!

As a little thank you for lifting my spirits and further reminding me how lucky I am, I'd like to offer one of these to my readers. I'll close comments on Tuesday, March 17 (simply because these make me think of st. pat's a little) and my random number generator (aka little boy) will choose a number to send the little happy off to. I won't have these actually finished until the end of the month, but I'll let you know if you win.

Have a wonderful day!
