a new Wolly Pop and some music for happiness

Meet Betty. 
She is a loving and skilled lady bird. She can cook anything from a pot roast to a jello salad.. carrots 'n all. She loves to listen to Bing Crosby records and wear black high heels. Sophistication, loveliness and a recipe for a good time are things she's never without.

Here's my newest little owl! I hope you like her. I wish I could say I was just as accomplished as her, but I can say that we both have excellent taste in music. =]
"Ol' Blue Eyes" is our all time favorite.

 Isn't this the cutest?
We have this song (a later recording of it) on a record we got from my Grandpa!
It's such a cute song. =]
And it's almost time for White Christmas again! YAY! Our Mom had to ban us from watching it because we'll watch it OVER and OVER again! It's our favorite.

Who's YOUR favorite singer from the first half of the century?
I should very much like to know!

Abigail the Wolly Pop

Here's my newest little Wolly Pop!
Miss Abigail Greer.. World traveler and cozy companion!
Please visit her in the shop to read all about her!
And I just happened to be listening to the Narnia soundtrack and this song just seemed to fit with Abigail! Well, why not? It's called Only the Beginning of the Adventure.

Love to everyone this fine November day!
I hope you are all well and living with hope for the real adventure awaiting us in eternity!!
Love, Marguerite

Cosmic Meadows

I thought that was a particularly perfect name for this pair of pillowcases. =]
I just love the fabric. It reminds me of being 9. Which was my favorite age. Everything is better when your 9.

Thanks for visiting our blog today! smooch. 
And just because I'm curious...  
What was your favorite age to be? hmm?

Pretty Hippie Pillowcases

I am a lover of all things hippie. 
Wearing my long brown hair in two braids and picking flowers are what I do best. 
Music from the 1970's is my favorite. 
Namely...Keith Green. Who I always called "Green Keith" until I finally figured it out. 
And I love the harmonies of Simon and Garfunkle. What can I say?

So when I saw this purple tie dye fabric, I swooned. Isn't it so pretty? I love it! I almost kept it. But I decided to share it instead. So, here is another pillowcase... or rather two, for sale in the shop!

And here are some more pretty etsy hippies form other shops!
{click on images to see them in the shops}

I want this pillow!
Owl fabric. Hoot.
Yummy yo yos.

 Pretty car seat quilt with hippie dandelion fluffs.
 I want this.

And just for fun, Here's a song I love, love, love.
I hope you are all having a happy Saturday.

Something Stirs on Pretty Wit...

Hello!! Well, what a loooong, epic space of nothing! And suddenly, BAM! Here we are again! I am here to tell all you lovely readers (or 'readers in waiting', I should say..) that I have made some pillow cases!! Not just any pillow cases... FUN pillowcases! CAMPING PILLOW CASES! ANYTHING-YOU-LIKE PILLOW CASES!!! Pillow cases you don't have to worry about keeping white. 
You may most certainly view this one in the shop by clicking on the picture below.

They are so much fun! I started making them for my friends who were getting married last summer, (and believe me, there were a few..) and they and everyone in my family seemed to like them so much I soon found myself making pillowcases for everyone I knew! Genevieve even made me one for my birthday! =] They are indispensable for road trips, camping, beach napping, book reading... and the list goes on. I hope you are all having a superb summer! We have had a smasher so far! Especially having the time to lay on a quilt on the grass and read happy books. This is one of the things I've enjoyed the most.

 This weekend we're hanging out with our cousins, doing nothing but fun stuff!
What are you doing?

This is the only one in the shop so far, but I have a few more made that will be in the shop soon!
Love and kisses to all!

It is my lady; O! it is my love...

Romeo and Juliet

Act II. Scene II.

The Same. CAPULET’S Orchard.

Enter ROMEO.
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?
It is the east, and Juliet is the sun!
Arise, fair sun, and kill the envious moon,
Who is already sick and pale with grief,
That thou her maid art far more fair than she: 8
Be not her maid, since she is envious;
Her vestal livery is but sick and green,
And none but fools do wear it; cast it off.
It is my lady; O! it is my love: 12
O! that she knew she were.
She speaks, yet she says nothing: what of that?
Her eye discourses; I will answer it.
I am too bold, ’tis not to me she speaks: 16
Two of the fairest stars in all the heaven,
Having some business, do entreat her eyes
To twinkle in their spheres till they return.
What if her eyes were there, they in her head? 20
The brightness of her cheek would shame those stars
As daylight doth a lamp; her eyes in heaven
Would through the airy region stream so bright
That birds would sing and think it were not night. 24
See! how she leans her cheek upon her hand:
O! that I were a glove upon that hand,That I might touch that cheek.

Love note

 Hello my Pretties! I recently won this lovely prize from Knitted Home. The following letter reveals my innermost feelings for it. 

Dear Rose Pink Ear Warmer,

I love you.
How do I love you? Well now, let me count the ways...

You are so soft and cozy and you keep my ears warm while I'm working or playing. You make doing chores and taking walks so much better than before. You look so beautiful that it makes me beautiful too. You are so friendly and useful that everyone loves you and says they want one just like you. You have a pretty and convenient little button so that you don't muss my hair  or make it stick straight up when I put you on. How considerate you are! Remember that day I thought I'd lost you? I was so sad! But ah, there you were hiding in my bag, oh the joy I felt when I saw your pink self! Yes, you are a beautiful rose pink that seems to match everything I wear. I love that you have a twin that will make someone else just as happy as I am.  But mostly I love you because a lovely friend made you for me!

Oh, how I do love you. Will you be my Valentine?

Your friend for life,

P.S. For more mushy mush love posts go read our Three Spinsters blog. Lots of lovely posts by my sisters.

A document in madness, thoughts and remembrance fitted.

The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark
by William Shakespeare

Elsinore. A room in the castle.

Re-enter OPHELIA

Dear maid, kind sister, sweet Ophelia!
O heavens! is't possible, a young maid's wits
Should be as moral as an old man's life?
Nature is fine in love, and where 'tis fine,
It sends some precious instance of itself
After the thing it loves.
They bore him barefaced on the bier;
Hey non nonny, nonny, hey nonny;
And in his grave rain'd many a tear:--
Fare you well, my dove!
Hadst thou thy wits, and didst persuade revenge,
It could not move thus.
You must sing a-down a-down,
An you call him a-down-a.
O, how the wheel becomes it! It is the false
steward, that stole his master's daughter.
This nothing's more than matter.
There's rosemary, that's for remembrance; pray,
love, remember: and there is pansies. that's for thoughts.
A document in madness, thoughts and remembrance fitted.
There's fennel for you, and columbines: there's rue
for you; and here's some for me: we may call it
herb-grace o' Sundays: O you must wear your rue with
a difference. There's a daisy: I would give you
some violets, but they withered all when my father
died: they say he made a good end,--
For bonny sweet Robin is all my joy.
Thought and affliction, passion, hell itself,
She turns to favour and to prettiness.
And will he not come again?
And will he not come again?
No, no, he is dead:
Go to thy death-bed:
He never will come again.
His beard was as white as snow,
All flaxen was his poll:
He is gone, he is gone,
And we cast away moan:
God ha' mercy on his soul!
And of all Christian souls, I pray God. God be wi' ye.
Fare you well,
