"God gave us memories... and fine china... so that we may have roses in winter." This beautiful tea rose was a year-end gift from Kyle, one of my students who I will be reminded of every time I see it. As I spent today adding more vintage treasures to www.prairiefarmhouseprimitives.com, I could not help but notice how so much of my china & linen happen to have roses.
As my school year winds down I am thankful for another year of Grade 4 memories and am looking forward to summer travels & treasure hunting. And of course, more roses.
And then the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was greater than the risk it took to bloom...
For over thirty years I have encouraged my students to take risks. A
perennial latebloomer, I have finally decided to take my own risks and pursue my
passion, collecting and sharing vintage treasures with others who appreciate
their beauty. Enjoy!
