Father's Day...Better Late than Never

I am writing this for on of Etsy Blogger's Carnivals. It was this or my fav recipes. Anyone that knows me knows that I don't cook and I barely prepare food. So Father's Day was the choice. But this was a hard choice since my father died when I was 23. That was MANY years ago. Father's Day between me and my father is a blur as our relationship was never very fact it was abusive. The end years were a little less abusive. We just saw the world differently. And let's face it, he was a weird individual.

But my husband has a wonderful daughter and she is my wonderful step-daughter. I have known her since the age of 2 and she is about 33 now. I love her a lot. She gave him a $50 gift card for He loves so this was a perfect gift. I no longer grieve over the loss of my father or even my mother since it has been a long time since they have passed. But, the relationship between my daughter and her father is what is important now. They have a good relationship and that matters. I am grateful for that and I depend on her remembering her father every Father's Day. And she does. Bless that woman. She holds a special place in my heart. So that is what Father's Day means to me.

Tamdoll is run by Tammy. Tammy makes fabric jewelry. The image you see above is a necklace. She has made each of the beads herself. That is awesome to me. When I think of making beads for my watches whether from fabric or paper or polymer clay it is overwhelming. She makes earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. She makes other things but go visit her shop and discover it for yourself.

Tammy also has a fun blog. Right now there is a delicious pie recipe waiting for you to print it out.

Her twitter is: Message her and tell her you read about her on my blog. Say I am from Etsy Bloggers.

I hope you go and visit Tammy's shop. She has some unique items. Thanks for reading my blog.
