Memorial Day

"Let us make a vow to  our dead. Let us show them by our actions that we understand what they died for. Strengthened by their courage, heartened by their valor, and borne by their memory, let us continue to stand for the ideals for which they lived and died."
Ronald Reagan

The Doll

If you like old dolls, this is a great book.
Out of print, but can still be found on auctions, and used book stores.
It is heavy and thick with a red velvety cover.

Frozen Charlotte's,,love the ones in the tub. (click on picture to enlarge)
German 1880-1940
Frozen showing off as usual.

These two look a little worried and suspicious.....

maybe they are wondering what I am going to do with the bloomers.
I'm kind of wondering too.
I'll let you know...Have a no worry  weekend!

Just thinking...

Did you know who this was at first glance?

Look into my eyes, what do you see?

Do we know of their sacrifice's for a free nation?

What do you think they would say about their country today?

Just One of Those Days..

I just have one of those days occasionally,,,where I drop everything I touch.
The idea to photograph this little chick getting dressed up was a good one, I thought...

Then this happened,,,,I said a bad word, I think could have neighbors heard me.
It was my favorite butter pat.

It wasn't, the f bomb, I will leave that one  to the politician's.

Over an hour later, I had glued all the pieces I could find and fit.
was the goofy chick worth it?...ummm, no.
The next day I found the chick in another room, the cat thought it was hers.
Of course she did.
Actually, I will change that to YES, as I got to thinking how unimportant "things" are. How we all are broken, and are beautiful anyhow. The intense energy I expelled on the butter pat, was truly a waste.
In a moment, God can take it all away, it's all his anyhow.
I am glad I broke the pat, and now it will be a reminder of "where" to put my mind, the next time I have One Of Those Days.

The Met, A Fashion Exibition 1890-1940's

Butterfly gown....gasp!

 When you get to  The exibition is called American Women Fashioning a Nationas Identity. Also"their" zoom feature gets "really" close,
much better than this.

I have shown late 1800's today as their my favorite.

This wool sweater is from 1895! It works today!

I just thought I'd share a place to get lost this morning.
