Sunday Sentiments ~ Getting Back to the Heart...



Welcome and Happy Sunday!  When I began blogging almost five years ago now I started a Sunday post called Sunday Sentiments... Then Mr. Ethereal lost his job just as my blog was barely getting going and I was devastated. I felt God had pulled the rug out from under me but probably it was more that He propped me up during that time. And it was You Know Who up to his usual worldly tricks...

June ~ My Mom's Birthday Month





Thinking of Mom  this week as the 13th of June would have been her 81st birthday ~ hard to believe! Born in 1938 she was the epitome of style to me when I was growing up. Here she is in her late 40's or early 50's.  

In photographs from when she was in high school during the 1950's, "Ginny" always looked so fashionable! Often wearing lovely poodle skirts, Peter Pan collars and soft angora sweaters and saddle shoes so in style in the post-war era of the 1950's...

Share Your Style #212



Welcome to this week's Share your Style #212 and it's no coincidence I believe that this 212th SYS falls today since the date is June 12th. It is also the anniversary of my father's passing and always a little rough for me since he died; I miss him a lot.

But we have lots of spring and summer garden posts, an Italian recipe and other fun things which my father was a big fan of! (bad grammar aside...)
