On a new mission ... distraction or avoidance!

by javaneh29

Background: The wedding is in 2 weeks today! The bride, my daughter, is ill and we're not sure if she'll be well enough. Her dress is now too big and needs altering again. The bridesmaids are complaining about the heels on their shoes .....ehhh! and my other daughter split her dress. Looking after my daughter when shes ill and the children,  is exausting. My other half is backwards and forwards to Sweden on business and I still havent got my dress for the wedding........ahhhhhh.

Relatives 3 hours away are needy, they dont speak english and we have a immigration tribunal in 3 weeks....ahhhhh.

I've nearly tracked down the Shajarian track thanks to all the really helpful guys here .. thanks guys you've been brilliant.

I just bought a great huge semi antique Persian carpet for almost nothing at an auction .... yey....:)

and now I am looking for those gorgeous Persian floor cushions! They say change is as good as a rest. But I dont know what they're called. Are they 'bags'? Anyone know where I can buy them?

Javaneh Jaan...

You're sorely missed and we can't wait for you to get back to us.  The end is in sight... just hang in there!

Another little story of my early days trying to impress the husband.  I was looking for some linens online and googled "Persian linens".  It came back with what looked like to be a small rug.  It wasn't what I was looking for but I thought... what the heck!  The colors are lovely and we'll use it in the bedroom.  My E-bay purchase arrived and sat in the trunk for a few days.  After finally bringing it in and setting it on the kitchen table, I noticed that it was not a rug but an open-ended "something".  Totally clueless, I was almost embarrased to admit to my beloved that I didn't know what it was!  When said beloved came in the door, he stopped... stared... and exclaimed... where did you get a pushtie!!!!!!!!  Another evening of rememberences around the table of martadella and mast as he relayed childhood memories of family and friends sitting around visiting. 

Good luck finding any!  After that, I googled everything and everywhere looking for more.  I guess I just got lucky! 

BYW... those suckers are a pain in the butt to fill!!!!!
