Bess is patiently waiting for her Valentine to come by...I hope she is not in for a long wait!
A while back during one of our antique shopping trips I found these wonderful linens, one is even embroidered with my initial, the letter K. Quite often on weekends if it is rainy we go antiquing, I could spend hours digging through piles of linens, old lace and whatever might happen to be there. Seeing a pile of stuff lying there only makes me all the more curious as to what treasures I might find tucked underneath. My mother on the other hand didn't care much for antiquing, like most people of her generation she just saw the stuff as being old. I can almost cry at all the things that were probably discarded over the years because they were "old". I remember quite clearly, even though I was still a young girl, all the wonderful antique furniture that was replaced in my grandmothers house because it was getting old and it was time to get some new modern furniture... times change I guess.It is the time of year here when sunrises and sunsets are at their most beautiful, who could be grumpy when this is what greets you first thing in the morning, as it did us a few days ago. I am quite often asked why we live here in the Pacific Northwest, I even ask myself that during our month long sieges of rain... well this is why!
See you all on Monday!
