Hooray, my favorite magazine arrived. I started to read the introduction page. The editors were writing about how it is important to take time to enjoy the simple things, time to relax. And so I had my aha-moment. I seem to be in constant motion with all that goes with a household.......family, garden and doll making... Time out to relax !!!!!
Since we had just celebrated my girlfriend Debbie's birthday, there was cake in the house. I decided to take it, a cup of tea and the magazines to one of my favorite spots. Lets make it special I thought.... pillows and tablecloth....just for me.
I love the pillows, since I love gardening.
This pretty cup holds wonderful memories.
It was my Dad's most loved cup.
It is quite old and the porcelain is very thin.
He insisted the coffee tasted best out of this cup.
So what more could a girl want, her Dad's beloved cup,
a nice slice of cake and her favorite read.
Behind me bees swarmed around the hydrangeas.
I loved this time alone.
Oops, thought I changed that, oh well, you get
This issue had beautiful garden pictures.... and, how funny, bathroom pictures.
That after we just did ours.
Oh well, love mine just as much!
The next time....and there will be a next time... I will pick another pretty spot. Maybe this one.......
or the bench on the deck.......
or the chaise in the porch......
but this I know, I will make time again.
To everyone who has left me such nice comments
and has not heard from me, I am having computer problems....some comments seem to go out, others not.
I am sorry, I am thinking of you! Waiting for my computer guy to bail me out .....again!
I live in a small town an hour north of New York City on the beautiful Hudson River. I am married to a wonderful and patient man who supports me wherever my fancies take me....be it antiquing, fleamarketing, decorating, etc.......
We have a great son and two absolutely wonderful and bright grandkids. I have been creating dolls and other creations since 1984...loving every minute!.....
My background is in fashion design and marketing. My birthplace is Germany where I lived my first 23 years. In my work, you will often see things that remind me of my childhood in Germany.
I have been fortunate to have been recognized for my work.
My dolls have been featured in Country Living, Country Accent,General Store,and Early American Life.
In 1997 I felt honored to be asked by the Folk Art Museum of New York City to display my work in one of their windows at Rockefeller Center for Christmas.
I will use my blogs to showcase my new creations and dolls that are for sale and you can still find me exhibiting at a few shows a year. Thank you for stopping by and please visit again soon!
God bless, Evi
