Barbara, I solved my mystery !!!

Last week, I got this Christmas card with this cute little ornament. I was very happy as this is the only Christmas cards I got this year but I didn't recognize the person who mail it to me ... I was very embarrassed so I wrote Barbara an email to see if she will recognize the email of that person. She didn't. So I kept thinking about it and then, it hit me: I won a prize on the 123 buletin board Silly me !!! Thanks Rose (no blog?), I really love everything (even the postcards is in my tastes !!! )


Before I moved, I won a magazine on Ranae's blog ! I love this mag that I can't find here: it's full of ideas and willbe useful when I'll start to think of finishing technics for my small pieces.


Have you noticed I changed my template? I like that one better than the previous one and I already chose my post holiday template !!!



Our future neighbor is bringing some stuffs to the house next door. I guess he will officially move in on january 2nd. The first time, we saw him, we were outside with my mom and he got closer with his dog witout saying anything. I thought : who's that weirdo? ... Then he said he was going to be our future neighbor and we chatted a little. I didn't like him because at one point he criticized the landlor's father who had told us this future neighbor was such a nice (yeah right ... ) . I mean when you don't know someone personally, you don't start criticizing people, right?. He's a retired director from a bank (still, I find odd a former director will be renting and not owning his own place ... He looks like the guy at the end of this commercial about the dangers of internet for kids (really !!! ) :


I think we will try to avoid him ... Emma is so friendly with everybody ... Last time, she was answering to an old couple in the front yard. I'm sure, they will have asked her our phone number, she would have given it to them !!! How friendly kids can protect themselves? (they think the world is such a nice place ... ) Any tips?



Still working on my fuchsia.

Isn't it sad when you are in a new place and immediately you have to watch out for people?

Your fuchsia is gorgeous-er and gorgeous-er.

Don't worry too much about people not commenting. We're still here. Maybe they're all like me - I've been in such a down mood lately I hate to impose myself on the sunshine of you.

I'll try to do better, my friend.

Happy New Year!

I have the same problem with my kids being a little too trusting. I have also realized that the cuter your kids are, the more people want to talk to them. We have to remind them often that they can't speak to strangers unless mom or dad is with them and says it's okay. We've also warned them about not getting into anyone's car or going into a stranger's house. Sad, but necessary.

That is a lovely gift from Rose!
And what a great Magazine Ranae sent you.
I love the new look on your blog...very festive. It makes me think I should brighten mine up ..we'll see in the new year.
Take care.

So glad you solved your mystery!!

ALL kids are too trusting. Anyone who wants to misuse that trust does not have to work very hard. Scary. We do not let our children talk to strangers unless we're present - no wandering around the neighborhood alone, etc.

I love your new blog theme, so pretty.

Sorry about your neighbour. We don't spend much time socialising with our neighbours but they are nice enough on the rare occasions we see them.

très belle avancée sur tes fushias !
je vois que le Père Noël vous a bien gâtés.... le visage de tes enfants le matin de noël vaut tous les cadeaux du monde non ?
je te souhaite une belle soirée demain.....

I have to keep a close eye on my oldest...she thinks the world is her friend. We've been working on "stranger danger" with her and keep telling her to not talk to people she doesn't know (and then she asks what if one of the teachers at school that she doesn't know talks to her...ahh, 6-year-old logic...). Fortunately at 6 she's not anywhere that I'm not (except for school, but school is a safe place) so I can keep a close watch on her.

I have been religiously following your blog (among others) and I find it extremely lively. My name is Akila (from India) and I have been stitching for about 7 years now. I have just started my blog which is http://mostly-xstitch-and-somemore.blogspot.com/
