I was making up the bed in Kate's old room here at the lake house this morning as my inlaws will be arriving this week... There are many charming children's antiques and girly things in this room... ...it is where our three sweet sisters stay when they visit.
Last spring I found this antique doll and then in the summer I found the little old dress that fits her just perfectly ...
...a bit short but she has cute knees...
These three friends were excited as Mr. Flea brought up a package that I had received from Margaret at The French Bear this week. I won her fabulous give-away a few weeks ago.
Let me introduce...
Isn't she darling? Thank you Margaret for this beautifully made bear and thank you to your granddaughter for pulling my name out of the hat!
Honey Bear is quite happy in her new home with her new friends.
I don't know if it is as hot where you are as it is here on the East coast right now... ...but if it is... ...think cool thoughts! ...or, as I am considering... go jump in the lake!
If you are so inclined...we are grateful for a few extra prayers tonight as my Mom has her first chemo treatment tomorrow... Thank you!
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.
