About Me

My photo
I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Oh Ethel, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your beautiful flower bed!!! You did it!.. And it came out GORGEOUS!! I was so glad to see that you'd joined in on the Garden Party! I've just got to get me one of those floppy hats now.. Hmmm, if not for my "garden" then maybe for walking the dog?.. Well, actually, I don't know what it's doing your way, but it's raining here, this morning, and I don't know how long it's supposed keep coming down or not. Maybe I'll get some reading in today. Whatever you're doing, I hope you have a great day.. Maybe I'll stop up for coffee later! ~Lucy

What an adorable garden!!! I just love the white picket fence - it's absolutely precious. Your blooms are beautiful. Stop by The Pink Home if you get a chance.

Hi Faith, I love your little garden bed, I'm impressed that you built it yourself. And your garden space is lovely. Of course, I'm particularly fond of anything with a white picket fence!

I'm so happy that you joined us for the Garden Party. Thanks for sharing your beautiful space!
Hugs, Debi
