linen and lace.....


I still remember the grandness and beauty of my grandmother's linen closet.  Stacks of beautiful sheets, pretty aprons, linen hand towels and hankies, crocheted doilies and beautiful handmade quilts.  As a little one it indeed was a nice place to visit, but now as a big girl I realize what a real treasure grandma's linen closet was.


It has been a real treat collecting these tiny treasures of vintage linen and lace.  In no way will I ever have a linen closet like grandmother, but these lovely pieces certainly make me smile.



Pretty lace napkins make tea time even more special.  The treat of a linen hand towel and a beautiful bar of hand milled soap...sweet little indulgence and no added calories!:o)   One of my favorites books on the care and collecting of vintage linens and lace is Linens and Lace by Tricia Foley.  A beautiful book full of lovely photos and decorating ideas.

  
Wishing each and everyone of you a beautiful and joy filled week!:o)   Remember, it is sometimes the small things that can bring the biggest smiles.  Chat with you soon♥

Happy Easter!


Hello!  Hope your week has been a beautiful one.  This week has certainly been filled with thoughts of our risen Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  Oh my how I love Him so.  He is good beyond measure.  My dear sweet Mother would often say "if I had ten thousand tongues, it still would not be enough to tell of the goodness of God". 

It is my prayer that you and your family enjoy a beautiful Easter weekend.  Happy Easter to each and everyone of you!

But the angel answered and said to
the women, "Do not be afraid, for
I know that you seek
Jesus
who was crucified.

He is not here; for He is risen,
as He said.  Come see the place where
He lay.

Matthew 28: 5-6 (NKJV)

spring break.....


Another week's end has come.  I hope yours was a lovely one and you have plans for a beautiful weekend ahead.  Mine was a wonderful one, but I must say I miss visiting all of you.   My computer simply did not want to cooperate for a few days, but all is well now I hope.:o)

Honey and I will be heading up the coast for a much needed and anticipated spring break.  Bags are packed and ready to go! :o)    My new Syrenity Rose shop will remain open, and would like to thank those of you who sent such lovely feedback regarding my new jewelry shop home!  I think I am going to love it here!  I will always have Etsy love:o)  So many talented artist and crafters there.  It is indeed Etsy that taught me a whole bunch about e-commerce.  For anyone new to the handmade business,  I recommend Etsy for sure.:o)  The support is awesome!!

Any special plans this weekend?   Simply curling up with a good book or venturing out,  make it a beautiful one.   Chat with you in a few weeks♥

butterfly kisses......


Beautiful butterflies, one of the delights of springtime.  Lately I have had to ask....where have all the butterflies gone.  I remember as children the smiles they brought to our faces.  Colorful, delightful, graceful, playful, so beautiful the butterflies.  Quietly approaching for a chance to feel the feathery softness of their wings.

With just a little research,  I come to learn that my observation was true.  Many are asking where have all the butterflies gone and bumble bees too.  Lots of different theories but one thing I know for sure...I miss them so.

Enjoy a beautiful week each and everyone you.

Flutter by butterfly,
Floating flower in the sky.
Kiss me with your petal wings,
Whisper secrets,
Tell of spring.
