Hello B e a u t i f u l s !
On our first anniversary, I embroidered an elephant on the pocket of his chambray shirt.
We were living on a little less than 500.00 a month, (military pay). Acquiring a collection of embroidery floss was budgeted . . . a luxury.
When the shirt no longer fit, it became Chrislyn’s kindergarten paint smock.
It’s been 43 years since I embroidered flowers on my jeans . . .
Landing here . . . directed me back to a drawer . . . and a small box holding one of my many collections of a lifetime . . . the collection that began near our first anniversary . . . 1974.
“You will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
♥ Blue Valentine
(Thinking . . . February has been a lovely month. Instead of a new life chapter, I believe I am on the inside cover of a fresh new book.)
If you stand on your tiptoes, you will see Spring!
. . . flowers . . . always!
Lynne, I would love to see Chrislyn’s kindergarten paint smock. It’s funny how we find so many memories and treasures while cleaning out our drawers. I just found a few of my own. : )
Happy March, dear friend.
Blue valentine… be still my heart.
Congratulations on writing a new book….not just a new chapter… of your life.
