- 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 that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

I hang these in my kitchen window...for 2 reasons....
One, because I love these little dress vintage look potholders, and two...you would too if you
had this view...YUCK! the brick wall.... my kitchen window faces the house next door
we are so close....oh to live in a place which looks like....
I found this picture, painted on canvas on a recent trip to Amish..and look it has 3 yard birds....oh the cheer joy of this life ....beckons me at every turn....I have this hanging in my kitchen as well...it is not a large
painting, maybe 6"x 5"...it is painted by Billy Jacobs and is called Spring Fever..you can view
more of his paintings online..I intend to purchase a few more of these...I love looking at this...so
simple and yet so consuming of my thoughts....as I muse about a day in the life here.....
