Promised Page & Mother knows best

I said on Sunday that I would show the page I made the quotation for, but I had a really rubbish day yesterday and didn't feel like I wanted to blog at all. I was sitting in the ash heap feeling sorry for myself because I have no one to go on holiday with.
Today I will pick myself up and do something useful instead.

So without further ado here is the page
it is about how I wanted so much to see and photograph a cardinal when I went to Florida but this was the only one and the photo isn't brilliant but I did see one and I did photograph it so was worth a page, another one added to my now rather thick holiday of a life time album


I picked up this little book a few weeks ago at the sale at the church. I thought I may share a few of the gems from time to time
Mother knows best
'Do as I say, not as I do. (I remember my father saying that to me)

'Were you born in a barn?' (I'm sure I said that to my children)

'Eat your crusts or your hair won't curl' (I must have left all my crusts then as my hair is dead straight)


I am grateful that today is another day, a fresh start, a clean plate

Beautiful page - perfect paper choices and embellishments for the photo of the cardinal. I remember spending endless hours poised with camera ready trying to photograph the cardinal that came to my feeder when I was at Wellesley College. I never did get a good photo because they are such nervous little creatures and the blue jays scared them away. Those orange flowers are perfect and I like the turquoise fibre wrap. Elizabeth xx

Yes, you often asked us if we were born in a barn, and you told us that if the wind changed we would stay like that. :) I'm sure you'll find plenty more.

A place for me to put the pictures of layouts I have done that I am pleased with, to put in the poems I write and to add snippets of things that have caught my eye
