A very Merry May to you!

Mister Staggs and I went for a drive this weekend, and I thought of you. You would have loved the "springing" of the year. Wild cherry trees were blooming everywhere we went. Mixed in with the new leaves, and the evergreens, the sight was a quietly wild and beautiful one.

It, is so interesting for me to see this lovely pocket, as I've been drawn to them, and that particular shape lately, due to a pattern that I saw for making one in Maggie Bonanami's book. This is a stunning one.

The month of May is filled with a palette equal to a Monet painting.
It is also a month of treasured memories. May those memories and love find you today as I send you greetings for a happy Mother's Day.
Hope all is well in your world of delights and dollies.

Christine,
Just found your site and I felt like I'd came home.I too love New England especially the 17th & 18th centuries. One of my favorite places is Plimoth Plantation. You seem to have an olde soul which is wise and kind.
I will be looking forward to your future postings.
Cheers, Donna
