"Let's be cheerful"! We have no more right to steal the brightness out of the day for our own family than we have to steal the purse of a stranger. Let us be as careful that our homes are furnished with pleasant & happy thoughts as we are that the rugs are the right color and texture & the furniture comfortable and beautiful"! Laura Ingalls Wilder

devoted sisters



Sisters, sisters,
There were never such devoted sisters,
Never had to have a chaperone, no sir
I'm there to keep my eye on her
Caring sharing
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
She wore the dress, and I stayed home
All kinds of weather, we stick together
The same in the rain and sun
Two Three different faces, but in tight places
We think and we act as one
Those who've seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can (except for Monte)
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister 
And Lord help the sister, who comes between me and my man 
Irving Berlin ~ From White Christmas





Blessings, Debbie, Hillary, Erin, Audrey

  2. How beautiful your girls are!
    My sister's are my best friends and
    even though we live several states apart, we talk
    almost every other day.xx

  7. Now, see, that is exactly why I always wanted some sisters! I have had to "adopt" sisters along the way. What a blessing for them and you!

  10. There's no doubting that they are sisters. Beautiful girls. I only have a brother so have close friends who I consider to be sisters of the heart. :)

    I like your frugal ways; the barkcloth pillow covers and the cute apron with cross-stitching - gives me an idea for a project.

    The county fair sounds like so much fun. You must be a creative bunch if you've been entering items for all these years.

    Happy belated anniversary. Another blogger posted about her trip through Sisters and the quilt show. I just think that would be so beautiful to see.

    Hope your day is great! :) Tammy

  16. Hey, Debs! East coast - actually Newport mansions - There's a lot of money up here. This is where we have the mansions like the huge manor houses in England where Jane and Charlie D. might set one of their stories. Great estates and full of crazy big stuff.

    Gotta tell you - I just got off the phone placing an order for my dancing slippers for the Civil War Ball we're going to in September - I ordered them through Victorian Trading Company - and the guy who answered the phone was named - Charles Dickens. Took my breath away for a minute. He says that all the phone staff use names of 19th century writers and artists. Very nifty!

    Joy!

  19. I love that! Your girls are all so very beautiful. Wow!

    Sounds like they are not only close, but have their heads on straight. (That is something I didn't quite have, plus I was an only child.) I love being a momma of sisters. Sisterhood is all new to me!
