Getting to know me!

So I'm back from a visit to South Africa - it's gone so quickly yet I feel like I've been gone for ages and that I've missed out in blogland.

Thanks for all my lovely comments on having a nice holiday. I had a lovely time catching up with family and friends, and worked hard to try and be a good bridesmaid. Debbie, I know you've requested some photos of the bride & bridesmaid dresses, and well even though I blog anonymously, I still thought that perhaps it would be nice for my blog friends and regular readers to put a face to the blog and to get to know me a bit better, so here goes. So I've included these photos as a sneak peak for you all. These are just some quick pictures taken with our camera, since the professional photos from the wedding are not yet available. For privacy reasons I will be deleting these photos from my blog after 5 days... I told you - this is just a sneak peak. PHOTOS HAVE NOW BEEN DELETED.

The colour scheme for the wedding was pink, purple and turquoise. My friend decided to put me in the purple dress. It was a big wedding (250 people) and there were 3 bridesmaids. The bride and groom handmade chocolates as gifts, provided tissues and seat cushions in the service as well as bookmarks as a keepsake. So lots of little details, well done my friends it turned out stunning!

This post is also a bit of a thanks to all of you who regularly pop by! Thank you, you make it worth coming back to do more and more posts.... now that's enough silliness from me, let's get back to business shall we? I'm already working on my next home keeping post. Let's get back to cleaning ladies (and gentleman of course)!

Hope to see you all soon.
Lots of love from me!

What a lovely post. I enjoyed the pictures. You are such a pretty girl and Mamma Lalla is a beauty too. I can see where you get your cuteness. I'm so glad you ar back, I've missed you.

Ivy said...

Awe, what a cutie-pie you are! So nice to see you!
You are so very, very multi-talented too. That cake? WOW! It's such a blessing to have you in blogland.

Lorilee said...

You look very pretty dolled up and "regular"! I'm glad you posted the sneak peek. I also think you look younger than I imagined. I guess it is all the "knowledge and wisdom" you share that gives that feeling! Your cake is fabulous! I also love the quilts. I have completed ONE in my life. I hope to do more eventually!

Awww! I was so nervous about waking up and seeing what comments I had. I think I was expecting the 'you look younger than I thought' ... but that's not a bad thing! :) I'm happy to put a face to the blog and thanks again for all your lovely comments.

Now, I have some serious catching up to do of all your blogs, but already I'm seeing some good stuff Melmel's georgeous house, Mandy's funny posts and brand new banner, Debbie's lovely house, Lorilee's chickens, Lesley's post about age and beauty, Ivy's winter recipe roundup, Steph's wonderful news that her Ubou event went well, Lori is out of town and Judy's beautiful photos of Aspen and sad news about her friend - I'm sorry for your loss Judy.
Once again, thank you to you all for sharing your lives via blogland !!!

My cupboards have gone to pot since you went away. I think when dishes fall out and smash when you open the door its time to sort them out, although I did do my cupboard under the sink after you showed us when you did yours X

I call THE COMPUTER slow donkey! LOL
Anyway... What I was going to say... is that I so love this post!
And I felt that you have written it just for me!
I`m feeling all special, now!LOL
By the way the photo of the bride and groom are so lovely!
But... WOW! You and your "Ma" are both absolutely GORGEOUS!
And I too thought, wow... isn`t she young!
Now I know that you are very organized and tiedy, wise, talented, friendly, lovely, and a real beauty inside and out!
Thanks so much for sharing your creations with us!
The quilt and the decorated cake are wonderful!
I`m off now, to pay a visit to your darling "MA".

My darling and beautiful FRIEND!

I have another confession to make!!!
When I posted my last comment... google was playing up, and only show me some of your beautiful photos.
One of you descriptions was:
This is me and and Mr. Laundry basket case on the left...
But the photo below was you with the monkeys... and I thought you refered Mr. Laundry Basketcase has one of the Monkeys on the left! LOL
Sorry about that!
Just me being me: VERY SILLY!LOL
And once again,
I`m so glad that you are back!

A note on perfection

Many of the posts featured on this blog are about doing household chores the correct, or so to say perfect way. My intention is not to make readers feel that the way they are running their households are wrong. So if making the bed, or ironing shirts in a certain way doesn't fit your lifestyle, do not feel guilty about it. But by learning the correct way of doing things it might just come in handy for those times when special guests are staying, or when you need to iron that shirt perfectly for a job interview. So enjoy the learning, but skip the guilt and LOVE your homes. x
