It was a beautiful Spring day, Wednesday was.
And unfortunately my muse had decided she wanted to be a gypsy and had taken off about a week prior. So when Wednesday rolled in, she was still off somewhere gallivanting around... more than likely in a meadow dotted with wildflowers and a bubbling brook near by.

Luckily for me, however, I had plans for a couple of the most wonderful friends to come over for lunch that day.
And eventhough I was struggling, and I mean really struggling, to function properly without my gypsy muse, the day turned out beautifully.
There was gift giving...

and soothing stitching...

and some pretty darn good food (if I say so myself).

That gypsy muse of mine must have sensed she was missing out, because later that evening she came tiptoeing up to me, head hanging down, with a whispered apology on her lips.
I told her it was all okay, but to remember next time, that I love meadows dotted with wildflowers too.

Have a beautiful weekend!

Every Silver Bella should have a blog, right?...and moo cards. Well, I have a blog now!!! If you would like to take a peek, it is called Katsui (and not Katsui Jewelry) and really isn't about selling jewelry! Just if you wish. It has been so much fun! My daughter surprised me with it.
See you next November...I am getting so excited!

Wow. Your post is one of the most beautiful EVER! Your photoshopping is awesome. You need to teach me some of what you know!

I'm glad the muse is coming back. I know it's just not the same without her!
