Words of Inspiration on a Snowy Day

This morning after chores I started to tidy up around the house and I came across something I had bought on my last trip down to Amish Country. Of course, I got sidetracked with "life" and those other important things and just set this aside. This card captures so much about what I yearn to do in life. From the soft blue dress (a signature of the many demin dresses that hang in my closet), to the basket of wool, and the quilt that rests upon the bench. I am going to frame this today and hang it up to remind myself to slow down to accomplish my dreams and enjoy the very essence of why I live in the country with my sheep.

"The cloth was woven and garments were made by the very persons who wore them"
( cards by "of purpose and spirit," Denise Skwira & Charles McCamy)
This is the quote on the back of the card that captured my heart.

Hi Kristi,
I used to have a short sleeve denim dress similar to that and I loved it! Can't find one to replace it :(
and yes Flossie is an indoor doggie :)
