I remember my Grandmother having lots of dishes. My older sister, and then a younger sister carried on her tradition. But I never understood their fascination of pretty plates until I started blogging ~ and then I made up for lost time.
Pretty plates lead to pretty linensand pretty tables . . .
Pansies are one of the first flowers to appear in the garden centers here in the midwest. While everything else is still bleak and brown, they offer such a lovely splash of color with their happy faces.
Every year they seem to come up with new colors to tempt us. So while the snow flies outside, I will count the days until they make their appearance in the garden centers and I can bring a few home to brighten my days.
I'm a mother of one "out-of-college" daughter, inheritor of one cat,a dog and four chickens, full time medical secretary, gardener, painter of furniture, fixer-upper and handy woman around my house, passionate about decorating, lover of flea markets and yard sales, restorer of old things, but most importantly, a daughter of God. Blogging is a way to journal and share my life, passions, and journey with anyone interested enough to follow along.
