- 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.

a blessing in my heart...
Do you Remember?
I was making the bed today, you know how your mind kind of wanders and you have a thought about something random, and it just leads to so many thoughts and sometimes (often) leads you back to a particular thought which has nothing to do with what you were thinking about? Well, anyway I had one of those today, often they take me back to places I don't want to go..but this time I thought of my Mom...and I remember how whenever she go a new purse she would put a penny in it for good luck. Oh how I wish I could hug her right now...something so simple, and genuine and it has stuck in my mind for all these years, only to come out today, when I was making a bed...How wonderfully blessed I feel to recall this memory. Wasn't mom's purse always so special as a little girl? Always very simple in nature, within our means and functional..always had a hankie in it, always...I have begun to carry one as well. And there was the penny for luck..Maybe that is what's wrong...I don't put a penny in there...have to change that.
I can hear in my memory telling me about the penny in the new purse.....such a warm and comforting message..
So today....Put a penny in your purse...especially if it is a new purse...
