1st day of Summer....

 Sharing my Summer Garden spot at Lilburn's Community Garden. Everything has grown so much.
 Those are little yellow pear tomatoes...our first ripe ones !
 This is my friend Sharron's plot. She planted Zinnias and Sunflowers.
 The Morning Glory seeds are growing like crazy...waiting for flowers...heavenly blue.
This is my neighbors space...Michael and Nancy share a plot.  Michael planted herbs from seeds ! LOOK how big they are already. This has been so fun sharing and watching whats UP.... Happy First Day of SUMMER !

Linen's and Lace....

 The Shop is overflowing with BEAUTIFUL Linen's and Lace. We have so many great handmade pieces for all your projects.  All these pieces took hours to create....a lost art in our instant world. Ladies would spend months crocheting bedspreads and intricate table covers as gifts and for their own homes.
  I am amazed at all the different patterns and designs.
  Victorian dresses had so many hours of handwork in them...the lace embellishment is so wonderful.

  Think of all the BEAUTIFUL tables that were set with handmade lace.
  Do not forget all the bed linens...Makes you definitely feel like a Princess.

 One can NEVER have too much LACE !

Hang on to it....

            I am so glad that old photos are still around. Last week I was able to purchase a lot of  old family photos.  No one knows who the people are any  more, their  identities  are lost to time. We live in a world that does not print pictures anymore.  Photos are a time capsule of our History.  Its a good reminder to help preserve our Heritage for future generations. Print those Pictures !
