- 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.

Thinking Garden...are you?
With the new year fresh upon us, and my little garden all covered in white gllistening silence. I wonder...how the garlic I planted is doing there beneath the mantle of white. And what about the Lavender which up to a week ago appeared to be growing still, and had actually grown when I moved it a different location. will it return?
The Lemon Verbena, I decided to bring in and overwinter in the basement, still has leaves, my scented rose geranium none. nd the lovely Peony which was planted the summer before..was about 1' high when my son ran it over with the lawnmover this year..will it come back? I love the smell of the Peony, and they are ever so vintage...
Vintage, it's not just for crochet round here...I'm finding interesting plants of the vintage nature which I would like to share in my garden space this year.
Lady's Mantle. I like the name, I wonder if it comes in pinks or reds? It is in the rose family.
