- 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.
The Guardian Angel
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.

We simply must get a new camera soon...my wee garden, the 4 heirlooms I bought are doing well, they look strong and healthy and have begun to get flowers, and they love this heat...I have 2 wee strawberry plants which have berries on them...hope I get to it before the squirrel. Basil is coming up, and the cilantro too, the lettuce seeds I planted are coming along, and we may be harvesting fresh greens isn't that wonderful? It is such a satisfying feeling growing your own...and last week I bought corn, already growing and planted on the the south side of the house which gets all day sun...tickled me pink me, planting corn....what a hoot...
The Zinnias are coming along, should be getting some buds soon, the blackeyed, and the mums are getting buds too...we'll be awash in color soon....
