A boy at a lake on a golden, summer evening.
I wasn’t sure what to post for this word prompt but then realized this photo I took of this old quilt was perfect. Because it symbolizes that I Crave simplicity, order, comfort and time to reflect on country days. I’ve been thinking of taking up sewing again. I’ll make smaller quilts – baby quilts or lap quilts for elderly people. Nice simple blocks – no fancy designs but a cozy flannel with cotton squares. I’ll donate them to those who need them. My Mom spent many happy hours quilting at church and it is wonderful to still see all the beautiful quilts they make for charity. She taught me the beauty and value of simplicity and elegance in how she lived her life.
I purchased this little guy at a church Art Silent Auction awhile back. It was just one of those things I had to have as he looked so goofy and I also knew the artist and it brings me a little joy at my desk. It sort of looks like a dragon.
Sort of a bluish/greenish color which I like. One is a little bigger than the other one. Big glasses (too big I sometimes wonder? But I like them). I’m often whipping them on and off as I read better without them. Best of all the eyes still work pretty good.
