LIFE IS NOT MEASURED BY THE NUMBER OF BREATHS WE TAKE, BUT BY THE MOMENTS THAT TAKE OUR BREATH AWAY.

Yep, even Tinier is Better !!




I got my buttons and newest charm from Sharon, Thank you my sweet Friend !!! Oh My Gosh, aren't these the sweetest !! Teeny tiny !! They make mine look like Blobs. My smallest button is 1/2" wide, so you can see how teeny tiny they are. And I love my new pink heart charm. When you look closely, they are real tiny roses on there. I just love them !! See, Tiny Is better ! And speaking of tiny, I collect these sweet Vintage Nancy Ann Storybook Dolls. They were made in the 1930's and 40's, and have the cutest pouty little faces, you just want to pinch their little cheeks. I have lovingly restored most of the ones that I have bought. These are the only dolls I collect, I think it is from my love for that era. Our home reflects that time, with my Vintage Linens, Hand Painted China, and old painted wood furniture. I am glad of all of the conveniences that we have today, but what a simpler time it was. People were poor, there was war, but families stuck together, and even having nothing our feminine sides craved beauty, and amazingly created bits of our heritage with needles and linen. They had Picnics, and Fairs and going to the movies was a Big Deal.
