Come Fairies, take me out of this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind, and dance upon the mountains like a flame! ~W.B. Yeats
Had I the heaven's embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half light, I would spread the cloths under your feet.
But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams...

Silver Lining Fuchsias
Oh look what I found in my mother's things!
Pretty pink fuchsias!
Growing up there were fuchsias growing alongside our home. I always thought they looked like ballerinas.
When going through some of my mother's things, I found this lovely stitched piece. I did not even remember her stitching them. Maybe she stitched them as a gift for me...knowing how much I would love them. Especially because I love the colors.
I found this pretty frame in the bargain bin of my frame shop and I had my favorite lady, Donna pick out this lovely suede mat (which looks darker in this picture, and not near as pretty as it REALLY is). I wanted her to cut the mat to match the designs in the frame somewhat. So we played on her computer and came up with this. I just love it.
