- 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.

work at your pattern it will come out a

stitch at a time taken patiently.

African Viloets.....& the Friday Farmgirl Bloghop.....
A while back, in the summer I blogged about the transplanting of these Aftican Violets into the one container, and how I wanted to make a mini garden of sorts. I have not done anything on the part of the mini yet, but the violoets have been busy blooming here as of late....2 at once...WOW... When they were in seperate containers they would bloom independently of each other....I was tickled when I saw this. I have these in a place in the living room which is behind the couch in a corner, near a window. I don't go back there often...
just to water these, and my hen n chicks which I brought in over winter, and my other cactus, which is supposed to be a Christmas Cactus...we'll see.
This is what they looked like when I transplanted them....they must like their new place, for they are lush and green and looking very heathly now....I guess it was the right thing to do...
and it will be on for Friday's Farmgirl bloghop
Happy birthday to you......stop by and visit Deoborah Jean, and help her blow out her candles.
