" If you don't know where you're from, you'll have a hard time saying where you're going".........
(Words of wisdom from Bumble bee)
~ A tiny voice whispered to me whilst reading, lovely, Anita's post just recently.
Lots of memories for me were evoked!
Thank you Anita...
I do hope you do not mind me writing my own little story, my friend!
So here goes.......
The red cape.
"I am from a little red cape, worn shyly, over a pretty floral dress...
From blushes and smiles.
~ and Shirley temple hair.
I am from a room with a view, of a park and a lake.....
Of birds songs and blossoms and gypsy free days"!
I am from music played loudly from the colourful fair ground close by...
Of candy floss hands and wonder waltz-er rides...
Of a garden of Wall flowers, growing up so high,' me and my daughter shall never ever die'......
From summers of old that beckoned you to come play....
And nights by candle light, when electric strikes had their way!
I am from nights with out night lights and bright orange, 'Diddy Jackets'....
Fishing for tadpoles with long butterfly nets..
From hours spent out doors free, not with a single regret!
~ Cool larders with jam jars and tea in the garden......
And manners if you please, there is no pardon.
From loving parents who were first and last loves...
and dear Nana, Maude- Fay...
always a love and hug coming from this way
I am from a home that takes in all waifs and strays.
And a pa who would bring home, white, kitties to make your Christmas day!
I am from you," reap what you sow",
and nights gazing at the moon.
laughing and singing to our very own tune.
And so this is me
~ and this I know to be true..
those were the good old days and I wonder how yours were for you!
The end or just the beginning!
A sunny spot.
I hope you all have been having fun in the sun!
(Little stool I painted up and brought home to live with me from Bumble Bee)
LOVE the spots........
~had to sneak it in mind you!
But I do love a painted spotty seat to enjoy a cup a in the sun!
~ Other things I have been up to are viewing this movie.
" The Great Gatsby".
I must say I did enjoy it very much!
It has mixed reviews, I know...
But I loved the colours the era and the wonderful clothes and the very splendid Leo, of course!
I think I will watch the original now, as I have never seen this before!
Have you, I wonder?
~WOW June already, now how did that happen!
~ Thanks for all the lovely comments always...
They make my day, they really do!
I will close for now!
Toodle pip and cheery o!
Love Maria x
