What Little Girls Are Made Of


What Little Girls Are Made Of



Bonnets and lockets, ruffles and lace,
Princess dreams, curls and grace.

Tea cups tipped and Daddy dates.
That’s what little girls are made
of.

Tip toe kisses and candle wishes,
Playing dress up and washing
dishes.

Deep down giggles, tear stained
cheeks, talks with Mom, hearts to mend.
Pictures drawn, prayers all said,
another day to rest her head.

Dress all pressed, arms around your neck,
Hair combed twice, sugar and spice.
That’s what girls are made of.

Dad approves, he is the one.
Pray without ceasing, your work is
done.

Officially Christmas


So it's the Christmas Season now...how do I know?
I saw the first tree tied to a car roof today!

I also had my hand kissed by the sweetest Italian Senior Citizen Gentleman, he was so adorable and asked me if I wanted to cook him dinner. Precious!

My creative juices have been flowing, whether or not my husband wants them to.
You see, the Lord has blessed us with a buyer for our large family home and we will be moving, Lord willing, to our new (used but 6 yr. old) one level home. I call it my Dollhouse, because we are down sizing and I have so many ideas for it...not that it needs much of anything, but I do want to make it our own, paint the front door, add a vegetable garden and privacy plantings, etc...

I will have a new studio to work from ( A.K.A. Little Italy)
May be putting my shops in vacation mode during our move...end of December is the plan.

In the mean time, I will be planning and searching for antique goodies for my new creations.
Have a Blessed Christmas!
