- 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.

Another Simple Joy..this is Miss Beatrrice
This is Miss Beatrice, dressed in her Easter Finery. This is what the well dressed Easter bunny is wearing this year... No outfit would be complete without lace, a lovely matching parasol, a sweet crochet thread sweater with the pearl buttons, and eyelit trim., and a fanciful lace bow on her sweet little hat.
This was a Michael 's find a few years back, the sweater with the pearl buttons...couldn't pass it up.
I look forward to putting her out every year..she is just a simple joy..
Do you remember ?
As a young girl Easter Sunday clothes...it was quite a big ordeal to get all fancied up for Easter. White Ankle Socks, and what is not to love about the white patten leather shoes, which made that noise when you walked in them, always had a hat too..remember the rubber band string around the bottom of your chin..,the little white patten leather purse..And going to school all the girls wore their Sunday best
oh how pretty we must have all looked on the playground.
Looking at Miss Beatrice must have reminded me of that now long ago memory,
dressing up for Easter Sunday.
