Beautiful Veils


There is a soft, cool breeze flowing through voile curtains

Another veil is also flowing through my mind.

Never before seen photos of my mother were recently sent to my brother.
They are are a treasure to us.

Good morning Maria, the first picture gave me a feeling of tenderness, the second picture is pure tenderness! I had to enlarge it, it is just B*E*A*U*T*I*F*U*L. A perfectly pretty setting with that car in the background! You must be sharing the most precious moments when staying at your father's home.

Oh what a treasure and PURE JOY..to find such amazing photos of your sweet mom. I so adore those vintage gowns...my mom still has hers and I so want to get it and display its beauty on a dress form.
Thank you for this wonderful image today..may your Sat. be filled with more treasures that await you right around the corner.
I have a list a mile long to get through today..but all fun! My husband and my girls are gone with my husband to the daddy weekend...a weekend every summer where all the dads and kids go camping...I think the numbers are up to 25...they have been doing this for 18 years...us moms are glad to stay home! Even my married daughter still goes with her new husband. One day I will post about this crazy event.

Hugs sweet one.

Oh Maria!!!! That photo of your beautiful mom just brought tears to my eyes! It is truly breathtaking! What a treasure you have. I can imagine what it must mean to you:-) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend! We are finishing some recording at home then heading off to church to rehearse and set levels, etc. We are doing one of our new songs from the CD tomorrow and really excited about sharing. Pray for us to be His instruments!

Oh Maria! Those voile curtains took me back in two ways, to the vail picture we both shared as daughters admiring our mom's wedding picture and then to the house we grew up in where cool breezes would slip through the windows dancing with voile curtains decorated by our mom. Thank you for the beautiful memories! Love you! Doreen

I love having the windows open and letting the breezes fill the curtains and the house (we don't get to do that much in the summer!). What a priceless gift that picture is Maria. She looks so lovely.
Have a blessed sunday.

Maria Maria . How breathtaking !
I love those moments making you very quiet .....
just enjoy enjoy enjoy .....
I love when a soft breeze makes something move gently and your eyes are seeing it and your soul is touched by it .
In my classroom I have a big branch from an old grape......
hanging above the table .
With golden yarn I hang up little things like paper birds or a crystal or a feather or... nice things we find on our way ....
And than .... when we are eating and sitting around the table .... you can see the faces of the children dreaming away by the soft movements ......
Have a wonderfull sunday .

Hi Maria!

I can see why you treasure this lovely old photo of your beautiful mother! Don't you love the old cars in the background?! Have a wonderful week, friend!

What a marvelous find. You must have been so thrilled.

Just an answer to your question about the ice cream. Sorry Maria, I have looked and I've only found the recipe changed by using eggs, heavy cream, etc but still they use an ice cream maker. it might be worth trying to just freeze it after its mixed. It's such a small amount of ingredients that it wouldn't hurt to try .

soooooooooooo beautiful! i kept thinking of that scripture..."For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."

The photos have an innocent feel, so pretty and full of purity with the color of white...:)
Very sweet!
