flower'd frocks and garden walks~

good morning
dear friends~

as these spring days begin to lengthen and warm, 
a meadowlark sings in the old rose by the dollhouse door 
and myself, the doll maker, sits inside, keeping snug by the fire 
with my sewing in hand. 

It seems my spirit & my sewing begins to flourish best just when the farm begins 
to awaken from her long winters nap. 
So, as these early days of Spring begin to warm and sturdy little green leaves and blooms begin to unfurl
you may look forward to 
that cheerful celebration of wonderful surprises with flowr'd frocks & garden walks 
and little dolls all in a row.

Sunday supper~ Hen Pott Pye

Fragrant, bubbly and hot from the oven for our Sunday supper

Hen Pott Pye

We have freezing rain and more weather coming over the hills towards us from the mountains~

Our March weather is always contrary, so we've got a good fire going in the big fireplace, a good old movie going and having our supper in front of it~

I hope that your day has been a good one, doing something you enjoy~

from me to thee

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice,
 but for those who love,
 time is eternity. 

 ~Henry Van Dyke

I send my love

from me

to thee~
