Friendship Friday


One recipe for friendship is the right
mixture of commonality and difference.
You've got to have enough in common
so that you understand each other and
enough difference so that there is some-
thing to exchange.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all
Here are a few images of our
Pinecone Cottage this Christmas

We had to keep things simple
because of our kitten. 

Love this box I found at a thrift store. 

This little church is from my childhood. 

Little treasures. 

Wonderful tissue paper and
my favorite Christmas wish,
given to me by a dear friend
many years ago.  She did the
calligraphy herself.  It is my
wish for all of you.

"May you never forget
what is worth remembering
or remember what is
best forgotten."
Old Irish toast

Be happy and safe and have
a wonderful Christmas.

Friendship Friday


If the first law of friendship is
that is has to be cultivated, the
the second law is to be indulgent when the first law has been neglected.

Friendship Friday


True friends don't sympathize
with your weakness----they help
summon your strength.

Friendship Friday


If I do vow a friendship,
I'll perform it
To the last article.
