{vintage bluebird}

Youth is just a moment~
But it is a moment
You carry forever in your heart.

don't ask me what I was doing
but I was in my
Grandma's bedroom...
remember those little reading lights
{with the chain you pulled to turn the light on or off}
they clipped to the bed headboard
{i think i was 15 or 16 here}

{still away and missing you but will be home soon with lots of photos}

Maria said...

Thinking of you, Koralee... as you participate in WWC ~ wrapped in the joy of all the women who went with you "in spirit"

Oh look at you! so cute, Koralee!
That smile you wear is coming right from the heart ~ knowing, after reading your article in Artful Blogging, how much you treasure the time you spent with your grandmother... and her gift of creativity.

Wishing you Joy as you create ~

love,
Maria

Hi Koralee,

Love the sweet photo of you and probably does not seem to be that long ago. I have photos of myself with plaits and they were fun years.
I remember the reading lamps too over the bed.
Have fun creating and look forward to your return.

Hugs
Carolyn

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

GREAT PHOTO! And I left a message on your cell on Monday....I know you have been busy, but dearest, it looks as if I will not be able to meet you. Family circumstances have left us unable to afford the visit to the event. I did leave you a message however on Monday wanting to confirm our meeting, but you don't have to worry about accomodating me for tea time; it would have been a dream come true for me. Enjoy your stay in our little city. Bisous, Anita
