"For attractive lips,Speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, Seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, Share your food with the hungry For beautiful hair, Let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day. For poise,Walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, even more than things, Have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed,And redeemed; never throw out anyone. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, You will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands; One for helping yourself, and the other for helping others"
Strands of Pearls also celebrates some of my favorite things- curling up with a book that makes you forget which century you are in, watching any Cary Grant movie, reading cookbooks, poking through antique shops in search of whatever you are collecting this week, planning the perfect getaway, buying a new bag, redecorating your home and maybe even your life...and oh if you are going to spend time with me, there is a good chance you will be knitting!
Please come visit when you can. I will share my favorite finds from my favorite places in life to play. All things irresistible, inspiring and full of joy!
