A Gathering Perhaps...

A woman's heart, shared with many...remember me recalls the wind...

Flowers on porcelain, a vessel, blemished but beauteous still
I see what was in your heart when notions picked and given meant...

threaded flowers, gilded opulence, views of loving...

and more and more, a flower sets many a passion driven...

as my table rests, faded and crumbling...and fading and crumbling...

I see time pass...as clock case awaiting, awaiting it's time...

and a mother waiting and awaiting..in a gilded moment she listens...

'till time spent is moved on...to gardens and flowers and a gilded past...

a day in a life...


Ok, so I played yesterday...in this biz it's an everyday chore, I'm sorry, but it is. I found great stuff, but so much more if only the coffers would've opened just a little more...argh...so now I go play, rewiring and buffing, as Sister's open house is around the corner and all must be perfect...you're coming right...?

Usually I'm a lover of all things old but I have to admit to being really glad woman's clothing has changed. Those long, heavy skirts and whatever went under them. Stiff boots, long sleeved blouses with high collars. All that ironing and bleaching and starching. What possessed them to wear things that uncomfortable?

What a great idea to wire up broken floral dishes! (I think that's how they used to repair the broken crockery long ago)I love the creative inspiration and photos you always have on your site--and your playlist choices are beautiful!!

You know I'd be there if I could, right? But, I will be there in heart - and I know you will supply us with great photos and beautiful words. Oh, and lunch will be my treat!

This gathering from many lives is like peeking into fragments of memories.

Strange feeling seeing that tapestry and the old photo! Perhaps the tapestry looks so much like a petit point my aunt made many many years ago! Very similar colours! And the photo looks a lot like a grnadmother I never knew! There was just the photo.

Very strange!
