From Old, Thrifted Dictionary to Cute Little Hedgehog

I hope you're all having a good week so far. 
I've been thinking of and praying for those 
poor people down south. 
I have so much to be thankful for.

I have been catching up and resting up 
 after having visitors for the weekend. 
My daughter and grand-daughters were here. 
I've also been working on some
hair accessories for the little girls
and making some shabby flower pins to sell.

We had a lovely rain and our first fire in the wood
stove. Yesterday, there were tornado
warnings just west of us. This is practically
unheard of in Arizona!
Thankfully, nothing came of that.

Our youngest daughter recently celebrated her
19th birthday. Her last year of being a teenager..
she is such an old soul, sometimes I forget that she is
barely an adult. 

She really likes hedgehogs and I can understand why.
They are one of cutest things that God ever created!
She's always very happy
when I make something for her so when I saw this little
hedgehog on Pinterest, I knew I had to make it for her
and give it to her for her birthday.

I have a love for old books. I use the paper and covers
 for project and for decorating. So I am always collecting them.
I had just what I needed to make this cute little thing.

So for a little bit of whimsey, I thought I'd 
share it with you all. 
If nothing else, maybe it'll bring 
out a smile or two!
Here are the instructions if you'd like to make one.
It's super easy and it doesn't take very long!

Thank you so much for stopping by.
Your visits and comments always 
brighten my day :)

Oh what a beautiful thing to create. It is so beautiful! We have the real hedgehogs living in the bush around us here and it is such a treat to see them when they appear.
Your daughter will be thrilled!

Lovely to see you joining in at Wen's party!

That hedgehog is just so cute! I am going to have to make one (or two or three). I used to work for a natural history museum and I loved it when I had a chance to hold and pet a live hedgehog.
