- 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.

Out in my garden.....
Over the years, trial & error...some years I've begun with all seedlings, someyears that worked and others it didn't. This year is a combination of items. Heirlooms already started by someone else who specializes in just those. Seeds I planted Basil & Cilantro, I have relatively good luck with these. I found some ornamental seeds for Pumpkin Sticks which are coming up too, so pictures will be forthcoming...The corn an experiment, and we have some actual ears. Tickles me pinkless....it does...whether or not we'll have any to harvest time will tell but I had fun and isn't that the idea?
Another is the Zinnia seeds, beginning finally to bud, that rain we had kicked started them to flourish and I am so looking forward to seeing the colorful Zinnia in my little " flower bed ".....
Isn't fun to plant and harvest, to nuture and watch grow....
simple tasks which give e simple joy...
