When I was young I had a favourite book.
The pictures were beautiful of a young girl in a flowing gown
I suppose that thought must have stayed with me.............
Yesterday my son in love
came to do some work in my bedroom
I took all the 'stuff' off the window sill and elsewhere
and shoved it on the chest.
When I got up this morning I thought
'that looks good....I think I'll blog about it'
So here I am
I have collected these
for a very long time...I just love the flow of the skirts
and the 'freeness' of the women
They seem to have not a 'care in the world!'
This one in particular seems to remind me of the pictures in the book
It's something to do with the pattern on the skirt
Darn it....I wish I could just find the book
and show you!!
These 2 were bought in 1984 and seem
not to have as much expression on their faces!
Royal Doulton were selling statues
for each month of the year
with a (fake) gemstone of the month on the bodice.
My mother bought one for each of us
This is mine.......
A few months ago she gave me hers
and I had to laugh.
Mine had brown hair (well my hair was brown once)
though to 'fess up...it never looked like that!
naturally chestnut until only a few years ago!
The other things on the top of the chest
I would like to mention....
The little vase of flowers.
When I was in the USA two years ago
a friend made two of these specially for me.
The work that went into making
each of these small flowers in beads
must have been so painstaking and long
and yet she did it for me and I am so grateful for her skill, time but most of all care and.....
Christian love for me!!
Thank you Heather!!
you have already seen.
I bought it, for myself, when I was with
my grand-daughter in a Disney store in London.
I suppose that I could see myself, like Cinderella, standing at the top of the steps........
waiting for my Prince Charming!
In fact I found my Prince nearly 46 years ago.
snoring...I mean sleeping peacefully.
With all that has been happening in my life recently
it would be nice to have a Prince come and
take me away from it all.
I am so grateful that I know in whose scarred hands
I trust my future
