...when the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I'm feeling bad,
I simply remember my favorite things and then I don't feel so bad......
oh come on, tell me you just sang ! and if you didn't, you are not a Sound of Music nut, like me :)Anyway, I was just tooling around the house and came across so many things that just make me smile. I thought I would share them.
A trio of dolls from my sister Laurel.
I love my perennial garden, so this was a birthday gift one year.
Her skirt reads "Flowers have the sun, Children have their mothers"
This one is fashioned from an old quilt of my Gramma Toms.
Emotionally, Laurel had a hard time cutting the quilt apart. She consulted with a textile expert and they assured her the actual quilt was beyond repair. And this way we all have a bit of it, as she made not only one for me, but also her my other sister and my mom.
Old St. Nick
A snowman from Meghan
And lastly, always remember to . . . . .
This is a beautiful memory book my sister Laurel made for me last year. I will share more of that with you later - it's so special it deserves its very own post. But for now, I need to stay on task and keep working on a Christmas surprise. I have made fabulous progress on my socks too and I will bring you all up to date on that soon - it is so cool the way the pattern works!
Savor the spirit of the season while you can and please don't let the 'stress' of Christmas bring you down. Take a drive at night and look at the Christmas lights, listen to old Christmas songs, bake and eat as many Christmas cookies as you possibly can and
