Here you go Arlee...a picture of the base and leaves of the mystery plant. Yes, it has a light smell and it appears the stem (at least at the bottom) is quite woody. It's very tall and gangly too. Our elderly neighbour keeps giving us plants for both in and outside and has no clue as to what they are and nor do we, obviously!
I *think* I'm finished with the box top now, unless I decide to add more to it. Unfortunately the camera doesn't quite pick up how sparkly it is in real life. Don't forget you can click on it to enlarge it.
'D' today -
1. I hate to use the word 'disappointment' but it seems to be what I'm feeling at this moment about the box top. I set out to work outside my comfort level and, to a degree, I've done that. However, I wanted to go a whole lot further beyond what I normally do and something seems to stop me. I keep coming back to perfectionism and downright fear that people won't like it. (This is not a plea for nice comments either - I'd much rather you give me suggestions on what I should do with it now!). Don't get me wrong - I like it now, but really wanted it to be more 'out there' and can't seem to get to that point.
2. http://denofchaos.blogspot.com is another of my favourites. There's a little knitting and the author's very, very funny outlook on life with kids and doing renovations.
3. http://doreeng.blogspot.com is another place I like to go. Doreen and I have struck up a cyber-friendship of sorts and 'found' each other through our common interest in TAST and just stitching in general.
OK folks. Over to you. Any suggestions of what to do with my box top or should I leave it alone? Please comment with your opinion!
