Farm Chicks - here I come!!!

Well even though our "Vintage Chicks" show is only a few weeks away and I'm a busy bee I just can't miss the Farm Chicks in Spokane. This year is special because I'm meeting up with the Come Junk With Us gang and my cousin Susan is joining me. Of course I'll be taking lots of pictures and will share my venture with you.

Have a Pretty! day

Burlap & Bling

This big, bright world,
is like a drawer full of lace,
though I feel like a leftover rag;
quite awkward, uneasy,
and so out of place.

Lace is chosen
by those with whom they connect.
and selecting their own special piece;
they want their lives
to be so perfect.

Then stew they will
when things go terribly wrong.
Their lace gets soiled, stained and tattered.
For this worlds special lace
doesn’t last too long.

They’re all sewn up,
still seeking what cannot mend....
But this leftover rag, this old scrap of burlap;
though nowhere near perfect,
is your special friend.
