Simply Happy!...My thoughts....

I have so many things to be thankful, humbled, and happy about! I've been asked to tell the Easter Story to the pre-schoolers at our Easter Egg~Stravaganza. Wow! and I am making this amazing doily, I don't usually make doilies, I don't know why, I adore them, so It's odd that I haven't made many, well it's not exactly a doily, you will see as soon as I finish it. It is from Crochet Memories, and I will post it here, and then when my Secret Pal receives it in the mail the last week of our Secret Pal swap, if she's been reading my blog, she will know who I am! Yay! If not, then she will have some super sleuthing to do.

I love photos of crochet almost as much as I love to crochet. It is an heirloom artform, and I simple cherish it. If things could be my way, we would still wear beautiful lacy gowns, with parasols and lace gloves. My mother in law wore lace gloves to her wedding. She had my husband later in her life, her oldest had already left home by the time she had him. He even has an old fashioned name! Walter! lol, However, we do have another name for him on a daily basis, as he doesn't like to be called by his given name. She had the most elegant and Victorian thread crochet hats and butterflies and doilies. Of course she made all these things before I met her. She used to have this hat on her dresser, it was cream with burgandy ribbon with baby's breath, and it stood on a wooden hat form.

I am in~love with the entire idea of being a Lady. It is just perfect that my Secret Pal's name is Lady!

Later in her life, my grand mother used to have a garden fit for an english queen, it was filled with large rose bushes that reached the roof of her home, Queen Elizabeth roses, and large white ones, even wild roses, hibiscus , 4 0'clocks, enormous elephant ears...it was devine. I love to day dream......I could lazily dream the day away, with a cup of tea, by the pond, soaking in the warm sunshine and cool breeze...

There I go again, turning a simple thought into a novel....

If you are reading this, I hope you take the time to feel the sun kiss your skin and listen to the birds singing and I hope you have an absolutely beautiful afternoon.....
