As Time Goes By

At any age in life,
as time goes by,
we’ll each have moments,
when we must say goodbye,
but we’ll all . . . always remember.

  • A dresser mirror surrounded with fan magazine covers
    and autographed, star photos
  • A beautiful, blue metal, powder-puff music box,
    sitting on the vanity.
  • Baby kittens … several batches …
    under the back, summer porch.
  • Your dad’s home-grown popcorn on Sunday evenings.
  • Your mom’s beautiful flower garden,
    her love of the color green,
    and her special bond with my mother
  • Me in my pretty, lavendar plaid dress,
    carrying the rings down the aisle to you and Irvin.

Dear Readers & Followers:

I’ll be back soon with results on a few more completed projects and info on some new sites I’ve found to share.  Meanwhile, enjoy the Spring as it pops out … finally 🙂

A Rustic Country Wedding

Home again, home again, jiggity jig … and it feels good.
No new news for a while, as I was away,
working on my son’s wedding.


That should say “helping” with things,

as the happy couple have spent all their time
in the six months previous, searching, shopping,
and making everything by hand.

All we helpers did was set up …
hang, assemble and arrange.

I did fresh flower bouquets, bouts and corsages.

The theme was “A Rustic Country Wedding”

There were lots of mason jars and roughed up wood …

Big jars for flowers, medium for mugs and teeny ones for tea lights.

Lots of burlap, lace and country patterns.  But mostly . . .

Lots of laughter,

… and Love …

Lot’s of Love 🙂

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Bradley Richardson, 11/1/14

More of the decorations and “How To’s” coming soon …

and better pictures of the Happy Couple!

Later – Cheryl
