february has always been my favorite month. love the word, i love the season approaching yet not quite yet spring, i love its difference from every other month with its 28 days and that twist of 29 every four years. different, i have always followed different. february's gift has been three glorious days of rain and still more to come. ahhh... the smell of cleanliness, green hills, clover growing in the garden covered in raindrops=memories of england. so much so that i have now watched miss potter a total of four times; how i love that film. and mr. warne and his music box gift to beatrix. i will never ever tire of it. what an irony that she could not have him, they would have been so so happy together.
so here i am, cozying up to my warm hearth, sifting through my latest magazines and in a totally english state of mind. i made these darling little button holders with vintage backgrounds for a sewing basket and working on a couple of sepia fabric dolls inspired by Sandra Everston as well as completing MAD Mamma's paper doll. all is good with the world when nature is happy.
