What She Wore

A small bird twitters on a leafless spray,
Across the snow-waste breaks a gleam of gold:
What token can I give my friend to-day
But February blossoms, pure and cold?
Frail gifts from Nature's half-reluctant hand...
I see the signs of spring about the land...
[T]hese chill snowdrops, fresh from wintry bowers,
Are the forerunners of a world of flowers.
~Sarah Doudney, "Snowdrops

Today I wore a dress I bought from a street fair in Pensacola. It's really Summery but I make it work with leggings and a sweater.  I'm not much of a legging person unless I'm wearing a skirt or dress. I just don't feel dressed when I try the long top look.  It's just not for me.

 Isn't this a cute pin? The charm says "its always tea time."

Today I made some rebatched soap. Soap making is getting really expensive, so I've opted to use what I have and pretty them up.

This is the sensitive skin Dove bars. I added rose clay, rose oil and sprinkled rose petals from the garden. Sorta semi~homemade. HaHa.


  1. Pretty outfit and pin! And soap! Good idea. Yes soapmaking is expensive. My husband groans when I express interest in getting back into making soap! I'm beginning to feel sloppy in pants. I wear a skirt/dress 70% of the time. I like to think I'm becoming more proper...ha! I like leggings but I am too chubby even with a dress to have them look good like yours do! Nice poem, goes with your style! Andrea

  2. This is such a sweet lovely post. I love your outfit.

  3. Love it! I am not one for long tops either. You know I love layers so I do like them over skirts and dresses. But they have to be just tight. There is in reality such a difference even in short dresses over leggings and log tops over dresses, even if the length is similar. At least for me. Love the graphic!
