A few more glorious days of sun .. vermillions and golds..
and then the the skies opened..
On the first telltale hrs of a gorgeous weather change..impending..I started chopping off all my perrennials heads..I picked the last Clematis. ... Huldine~..and the last Fairy Roses..truth be told..if we have no frost soon..The Fairy roses will be blooming their heads off again~..♥
They are my very favorite roses here in my gardens in QC~
We had some pomegranate scones.. yet again..Sunday.. that I love so much..(still hate arieling them:)
and may have found a tool on Amazon..but will wait until I buy and try to share~
I have posted these before..and cannot find my post anywhere~..
Try them..I vouch for them over and over again..and make over and over again~♥
That same clouding over day..I went in the garage attic..I knew I had boxes up there w/ clothes my daughters wore..
I found a few keepers..like the embroidered dresses I made them..etc..
and thought of Jana~
I have posted about her before..from edible flowers..to pinks..to paprikas..to curly haired blonde beautiful children~
My daughters have great friends..
and each one has her.. (or his..Chris)..little comfy..funny..honest..warm..brilliant personalities..
But I had the opportunity to work with one before I stopped working.. Jana..and well...I loved her too:)
So when I thought of the kilts and saddle shoes and Polly Flinders dresses and hand knit sweaters..jumpers..etc..all these girl clothes.. w/ my 4 alphabet boys..
I though of Jana and her 2 Nordic looking blonde darling daughters:) Clémence..and Astrid~♥
So they are washed..pressed and off to 2 new little girls more than 30 yrs later:)
BUT..I aslo found half of the Barbie clothes collection..a neighbor's mom had knit for me to give to the girls from Santa.. look how beautiful:) All kinds of hand knit perfectly knit little intricately made outfits..and she had made the hangers too.
I am keeping those for now..
and may buy myself a new vintage Barbie:)
I found the very first Cabbage Patch doll too~
Enjoying these small trips down memory lane..while the ABs..make new memories for me..

The unfortunate thing is..sometimes you may not get to hear me dropping by..
It's that spell check ..prove you're not a robot thing..
Once ..twice..three strikes I am out.
Sometimes I think..oy I'll never get past this one..and I have 20/20 close up vision..
and it works fine.. other times..I think do I even try? No one could make this out..and I get a home run..
But quite a few times..all looks good and ..3 strikes I am out..
even 2 strikes .. I find ..well.. it can get to me..And my middle name is Patience.
So please never think I am stopping by without trying to say:" Hi! How are you? Looks good":)Pinning..!
It's just that the welcome mat gets tugged back by the spell checkerooythingy.:(..I am going somewhere or seeing small boys..or doing something downtown..etc..
I do try~!
Not because I have to..but because I want to..drop by.:)
