After all the wonderful Dallas Quilt Show pictures, it’s kind of a let down when life gets back to “normal.” 
I do have a couple of weird photos to show you of a quilt I saw recently at the Montgomery Street Antique Mall in Fort Worth, Texas.  I don’t know the name of this applique pattern.  I have never seen it before so it really caught my eye.

It’s some kind of bird on a limb thing.  My guess it’s from the 1970s or thereabouts. 

One of the first signs of Spring is the blooms of the Souvenir de la Malmaison rose bush in my front flowerbed.  Purchased many years ago at the Antique Rose Emporium in Independence, Texas, this rose bush has been a constant source of fragrant, elegant blooms for several years now.

The pale pink blooms smell the way roses are supposed to smell – all sweet and rosy!

The bonus is they are repeat bloomers so I will get to enjoy them again and again through summer into early fall.

So until next time,

  1. Great quote! Hope you don't mind...I "pinned" it!

  2. Your rose is beautiful- a sure sign of spring!!
