~Heather, in March~

"It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade."

~Charles Dickens

A Nature Picnic for Two

Mom peaked her head into the office where I was studying, and said with a happy smile, "Kami, you have to take a peak at this little picnic basket I put together for the kids!". It was a healthy and loved arrangement of cheese, apples, almonds, and a hard boiled farm egg for each of them.
I ran to grab my camera...
I knew they would be tickled pink~

Treasures for the Hope Chest!


~*~When the love for the art of homemaking and the hopes of becoming a Mommy and a Helpmeet are held close to the heart of a girl, she fondly looks forward to the day she will open the latch on her hope chest, and permanently take out the little treasures that have been gathered throughout the years...

~*~Thrift stores can hold quite special treasures, when your sharp eye is shopping.

~*~Mom and I discovered these adorable bumper pads for a crib, and 6 porcelain knobs for a little girl's dresser!

~*~I can't help but smile as I picture a little nursery, adorned with these dainty treasures.

~*~Keep on the look out for these exciting deals!!! It's hard to stop jumping up and down after spending $3.00 for such practical and beautiful items! Start hunting!

~*~ Tootle loo!
