The first sweet violets of spring have appeared... This little paper soap box came from the Marche aux Puces de Saint Quen-Porte de Clignancourt in Paris.... I bought it when we were there eleven years ago...
My Nana had lovely hankies like this one... ...I find these irresistible at the flea market!
Violets...sweet little gifts of spring!

To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
