Where I Grew Up...


I remember roaming through pastures and muddy
dirt roads like it was yesterday.
I always had my pockets filled with treasures...
A bandanna of acorns, pine cones etc. knotted closed.

When I was a child...
I wanted to keep mushrooms as little canopies
for my critters... I tried to transplant some.
There was a dirt floor in part of our basement.
Water would collect and Newts would live there.
The mushrooms would dry up...
I tried several times with no success.

Fun to remember back and smile~
Hope a wonderful memory visits your heart today!

Oh Michele we had the same childhood. I was forever collecting little nature treasures. The problem is I still do. Always finding tiny cones and pebbles in my pockets. I think the best garden I ever created was when I was 10. I collected (dug up) and planted wildflowers and ferns in our woods under a canopy of trees. It was so natural and lovely. I know the fairies lived there. :-)

Michelle amor, what a lovely childhood memory, I collected tons of things to, but from long beautiful days and nights spent at the beach, I will never forget when my mama couldn't find the nasty smell in our house for about a week...turns out it was the sand dollars and pretty shells in an old shoe box under my bed :) I was 5 and didn't know you had to set them outside to "dry out & lose the smell" lol I will never forget how mad my mama was :) Now she buys me the loveliest shells when we visit the pier...says it is worth if, if it means I won't stink up her house :) Thanks for helping me remember that! Have a beautiful weekend. Besos, Rose

ps...even your mushrooms are beautiful...you have such talent :)

You really do such pretty little drawings on these fabric pictures.
I love the bird book, the pages of the eggs are wonderful, what a fantastic find.
Your childhood sounds so similar to mine, always collecting, lovely memories to treasure.
