I have joined Etsy Cottage Style this month of
June for color white. White is my other favorite
color next to pink and have many things in white.
Here are just a few of my white's, hope you enjoy them.
Angel in bedroom, I have draped this lace over a cabinet with a tall mirror, then a gardenia from my garden, my white home, where we have lived for 50 years and my vintage doll
This is a view of my patio with white furniture
and ready for tea.
Have a terrific day...I leave you with this poem
from Mattie Stepanek an award winning poet at the age of 11
The sky is such a perfect blue
It must have been painted there.
Even the clouds bear witness
To the stroke of an artist's brush.
This just proves that God is perfect
At many professions. February 2000

On my way to the Post Office I drive by this lovely
This lady works hard to have all of her front yard
looking like this.
Last week I thought why not stop and ask if I
could take a few pictures of her garden. I pulled
up in front of her sweet home, had camera in my
hand and went up to her door, knocked, out came
this sweet lady. I told her how much I admired
her garden and was wondering if I may take a few
pictures of her beautiful garden,well she was
thrilled that I liked her garden and replied,
"Oh my yes, take all you want," so here is part
of her amazing garden.
Have a sweet day...Lu

Daddy you were the best dad anyone could ever have.
Thank you for being my sweet dad and being there for me always.
I never saw you angry or upset about anything once in my entire life.
Remember when I was a little girl and you would
take me shopping down town to buy me my paper
dolls and my coloring books? Of course had to
have that big box of 64 crayons, oh how I loved
those days and will treasure
those memories forever.
Love you Daddy and miss you, I know you are my guardian angel...

I have joined Stephanie of Angelic Accents for this wedding party.
Two group wedding pictures are from 1930, family members, dear husband and I leaving on our honeymoon between them. The year was 1955, a magical time, this is our original cake topper and my crown, so glad I saved them all these years. See below for other vintage wedding pictures which I had posted previous to this party. God has truly blessed us and we are forever thankful.
Love is wonderful without love we have nothing.

Hi to all my precious friends, I never post things I make so today decided to show you just a little bit of my wares. I enjoy hand embroidery so made these children's clothes hangers, also love to sew and made the little bear dolls the last picture is of my favorite three bears. Gold bear was given to me before I was born, he is vintage by now, lavender is Annette Funicello bear, purple bear cause love purple. I also do decals on china cups etc., altered bottles, images on pillows and much more.
Hope you enjoyed my little bears...Love you all, Lu
