- 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.

Calgon take me away place...thank you Pam
remember the old Calgon commercial? I am Vintage I told you that...
For those of you who have been with me a while, you know that my first blog, (the broken one)
was about two of my loves the Sea & Crochet. For the record I live in Ohio..not anywhere the Sea. Crochet, that I can do anywhere...that is why I love it, it is portable. By the
way since I was unable re-use crochet by the sea...
I added it to the end of my new name, How's bout that?
I stop and visit Miss Pam daily, it is my Calgon Moment..
Today, as we approach the end of this year, and hold hopes high for next year, I am reminded that right before the dawn is the darkest time. I am looking for the dawn, and hope it comes soon for this family, and others in our situation.
So, I appreciate Pam so much and her love of the Sea, and her ability to make it real for me, when this is
just a dream of mine, to bring it real for me to hear, and see the sights and souds and all those wonderful Seashells...piles and piles of them..oh my...
How many times have in my head I have I went there, with my pail and bucket, with my floppy Mrs Drum hat, to walk on the sandy beach and hear the sound of the roaring shore, walking on the soft carpet of sand warmed by the sun. Seeing the surf gently washing up to shore it's beautiful and wonderful treasures from the depths of the Ocean. Oh such wonderment...such joy this brings to my weary heart.made of...
It is what dreams are made of.and
maybe someday...I will meet Miss Pam on that Beach..look for me Pam, I'm the one with the floppy Mrs. Drum hat, the pail, and SMILE FROM EAR TO EAR....sitting on a pile of hugh shells....nothing could make me happier...:)
Simple Blessings to you all this day, whatever you find that makes your heart dance with joy, or brings you comfort...
Simple Sweet Blessings..may they FIND you..
