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).

Where Love Overflows

Wanting a quiet place to call her own the little girl went to work carefully dragging her favourite items from within their home in hopes that her mom would not catch her. The carefully selected couch cushions, throw rug, and the blanket from her parents bed were the first items to disappear. The throw pillows and small table where she planned on putting her favourite book to read were next. Silently she came and went without much notice as she pieced together her little spot by the waterfall. Stopping to get a snack, she smiled at her mom as she ate the cookies on the plate. She watched as her mom disappeared from the kitchen and came back after a short while. Not much was exchanged between the pair as she trotted off to finish her project. She dragged her favourite book outside to read while she surrounded herself with the sounds of the waterfall and nature, only to find some new toys surrounding her little spot of quiet. She smiled as her little heart filled with her mothers love.

Relaxation is in the Art

relaxation-is-in-the-art

Paint could be smelt drifting down the small narrow hallway, letting the others know that something was taking place in the small room at the back of the house. Usually you could hear the whirl of the sewing machine as a new vision came to life. Today though, the medium was paint and the inspiration was the view out the small window in the ceiling as the clouds drifted lazily in the sky. Those who snuck a peak from time to time, could hear the slowly sigh as the individual relaxed within the art room.

Decorating has Begun

decorating-has-begun

Piece by piece, the house began to fill with the seasons spirit. Snowmen adored each room, wall hangings clung to the walls. A tree could be found standing tall and proud on each floor of the little house. Slowly, crates were pulled from the attic and crawl spaces. Each decoration had its’ special place of honor within the house. Slowly the decorating had begun.

Memories of Yesterday

memories-of-yesterday

Slowly she walked into the house where her granddaughter lived, she was there to have dinner and visit with her great grandchildren. She looked forward to her weekly visits since it made her feel young and important again. This time the visit was different; this time she was not in the present, for she was lost in the past. She stood starring at the decor in the front entrance transfixed to the spot where she stood. She smiled watching the little ones pick up some toys and then looked over at her granddaughter, lost in her thoughts, she flashed a child like smile and asked if she could hear her momma play the violin. Her granddaughter looked at her, smiled back and simply nodded to her grandmother picking up the violin. Her mother use to play when she was a little girl; as her granddaughter began to play she swayed to the music. Her granddaughter never once corrected her, she just played and allowed her grandmother to have the moment lost within the memory of her mother.

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.
