The Dressmakers Dolls

Usually the young dressmaker, could be found in her little shop lost in new orders for dresses that the women of the village wore to special events, but for the last few days business had been slow for the dressmaker. Needing to find something new to help keep her business running, the young dressmaker took up a new hobby; one that had the little girls of the town whispering about. She had figured it would not be to difficult to make her dresses in a smaller size then what she was use to, after all she was already making gowns for newborns. Before she knew it she was making dolls for the all the little girls, who were making requests for dresses for themselves and their dolls (so they could match).

Travelling Neighbours

travelling-neighbours

They arrived sometime during the night while the rest slept soundly in their beds, by morning the site had been set up as if they had been there for days. The smell of roasted chestnuts drifted on the morning breeze drawing the locals to the little gypsy house. As the locals arrived the party grew and more then just chestnuts were served for breakfast. The question that lingered on everyones mind, was long would the new neighbours stay before they moved on to a new location.

Have You Seen My Hat?

have-you-seen-my-hat

It was a long and exhausting day at work. Dropping my bags at the door I made my way over to my desk, turned on my laptop so I could finish more work at home, and removed my hat placing it on the desk. Before I knew it, I had been working for far longer than I had intended. Slowly I stood stretching a bit and made my way into the kitchen to prepare dinner. I returned to my desk to finish what I had been planning for tomorrow after enjoying dinner and watching a show. Eventually I made my way to bed. The next morning I looked everywhere in the house for my special hat. I could not find it anywhere. Have you seen my hat, it is perfect for a teacher, and carries all the essential items I would need in a day. I did not want to miss out on silly hat day like I have in the past.

Small Country House

Small Country House1

Nestled in the country side, stood tall a little house; filled with great character and many stories to tell. Every day around the same time, the neighbours would see a flock of crows flying overhead singling that the home owner was cooking and putting the refuse outside in their garden. Not one of the neighbours could tell you much about the home owner, just a few snippets of information was really known. The small house had been there for as long as anyone could tell, and they all said the same thing that it could use some love and improvements but no one was brave enough to suggest this. The home owner carried out the same routines, tending to their small garden and doing chores around the home. No one could tell if they ever left the property, but they knew once a week a small car would arrive at the same time and during these little visits, you could hear laughter and the tiny voices of children would drift through the wind.

The Forgotten Corner

There are times in my life when I close out the world to absorb the information overload I have received. Generally each day is filled with information coming in and out, because I choose for this to happen in my daily life. This information comes in the form of knowledge through the pursuit of learning; which I find relaxing. Then there are days where the information I gain, hangs in the air like a dark cloud weighing on my thoughts. This information causes my heart to swell with pain and discomfort and I need to find a place where I can dissect the information and paste it all back together filling in holes and creating the broader picture. During these times, my emotions are heightened and often uncontrollable. I need to find that quiet place to be alone within myself as I work out what direction I will be taking as I move forward with this uncomfortable information. This week has been filled with this sort of information, the type of information where I grow sad and need to be alone to work through it. Fortunately I found the perfect spot in a corner tucked away from the sight of others, where I could find inner peace and be forgotten about for a couple hours.
