April Greetings! 

"We live...but for the simple end of being happy; nothing for the present hour is worthy of man's infinite capacity save to imbibe the warm smile of heaven and sympathize with the reviving earth."

~~ Nathaniel Hawthorne ~~

Time to relax & recharge...

 I decided to allow myself a little break this month ~ time to relax and recharge.  Time to think about the coming garden season, get caught up on some reading, and work on a few things for myself.  So, while I am not ready to release a new pattern, nor do I have any finished goods for Early Work Mercantile, I do have the nicest little project I wanted to share with you.  It is not my idea; rather something I saw in Country Living Magazine ~ a sweet way to repurpose the lid from an old teapot or sugar dish into a photo holder with loads of vintage charm... 

 This project works up very quickly! All you need is a 12 inch length of bale wire, a pair of needle nose pliers, an old photo, and a lid with a handle or finial.  Using your pliers, curl one end of the bale wire into a double loop or spiral, as I did.  You will tuck your photo in this end.  Then wrap the other end around the lid's handle or finial, adjusting the height to your liking.  Trim away any excess wire, tuck in your photo, and display! Simple and so very charming! My finish (above) holds a cherished sepia image of my paternal grandmother, Gertrude, fishing.  Wouldn't a trio of them look lovely on an old ironstone platter?  Hmmm, I may need to hunt for a few more lids...

In Closing...

Until next month, my friends, I wish you joy in all you do!

"I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils."
