Who would like to see me design something like this???? Love it!
For several years I have dreamed of opening a shop again, and things finally came together for me to do just that! Located here in Murfreesboro in The Gateway Village.....a lovely complex designed for its occupants to live, work, and shop.
More details coming soon! 615.546.5300
My #1 cheerleader....my friend....growing up the house sometimes wasn't big enough for the two of us, but Mama had everything to do with nurturing my love for all things creative. She hated to sew (too tedious for her) but she saw that I did. Mama would buy pattern, fabric, and all the notions for me to make whatever I wanted.....often surprised me on Fridays with a new project that she had slipped into my bedroom and left at the foot of the bed. Loved her family.....was a wife, mother, and homemaker for most of her life. As a young girl she had always wanted to be a nurse, but her daddy wouldn't allow it. Finally after many years she studied to become a nurse's assistant at the local community college when my youngest brother started to school. She postponed her biggest dream for her family.....and I will always be grateful to her for all the sacrifices she made on our behalf and there were many. Missing Mama is only bearable for me because I KNOW I will see her sweet smiling face again and I can tell her again how much I love and appreciate her.....so honored to call her "Mama".

Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.
Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.
And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil.
A lovely time of renewal and hope is upon us.....new growth.....warm sunshine.....soft breezes. Energy is in the air as the birds are singing, squirrels are unearthing treasures, and baby rabbits are scurrying here and there. This is the entertainment I am blessed to enjoy today. It's a perfect time to think of the fresh, bright colors that spring brings to us.
