7 Days of Loot, Glorious Loot - Day 6

The biggest, heartiest chuckle that I've had in a long time delivered by a scene in Marley and Me.

A wonderful day of crafting, chatting and snacking with the girls. For those of you who were wondering what the Thornbury Craft Bonanza is all about, it started here. These days it's like getting together with a bunch of girlfriends I've known for years. I love the comfortable space that we inhabit. You know what I'm talking about don't you? That wonderful connection that women share.

Loot comes in all shapes and sizes.

  1. I know that connection. I've been in the same quilting group for about 7 years, and even though people have changed, that feeling of companionship and trust never changes.

    So glad you had a nice day!

  5. It was great to read about your inspired gardening efforts - can't wait to see! I bought most of my plants as tube stock from a local community native plant nursery. There is a terrific one down your way but I have to email my friend for details. In the meantime I found this one online. It is on Yarra Bend Road, in Fairfield, which I think might be in your neck of the woods?:

    I know what you mean about that connection between women - it's precious.
