A Few more Pretties

Is February too early to want Spring ? I guess I'll have to settle for Millinery diversions!

Floral Lace

Vintage Corsages made from Silk and Velvet

Raised Floral Detail ~ Irish Crochet

and Large Cabbage Roses ~ Pretty in Pink

They are currently listed in my Etsy Shop .


Guess what ! Our family of four is going to Florida next week !!!! I can't wait : ) Bye Bye snow for 7 full days. I may even get to swim with a Dolphin or two ! Only one child is willing to go with me . . .can you believe that? Do you love Dolphins? I ask. Oh Yes, Yes, say the little munchkins. Do you want to swim with one? Absolutely not says my not-so-brave 14 year old. Hmmmm? Ah well . . .all the more swim time for me I suppose. I can't wait : )

Hi Karen,

Love the pretty pink roses, my favourite.

How wonderful that the Family are going to Florida.
You will enjoy the warmer weather and to be able to swim with dolphins, will be amazing.

Have a great time and we look forward to hearing about your trip.

Have a great weekend.

I've never been to Florida--I would LOVE to swim with dolphins--maybe your 14 year-old will change his mind--I would think it would be the experience of a lifetime! Enjoy your vacation! The photos on your post are beautiful--love the roses! Have a great weekend! Smiles, Jann

Hi Chrissie, Cider is doing well (oblivious to her leg issue). She will likely have her operation at the end of the month or in early March. I'll update more then. Thanks for asking :)
