A Pintuck and Ruffle Garden




Baby clothes are like little handmade bouquets. Intricate and soft with delicate folds like petals. Awesome in detail. Cheerful as roses.





And hardly a winter goes by that I don't yearn for silky yarn and knitting needles to grow a cozy sweater from.





Beds of coverlets and throws banish the winter chill.






Isn't lace like a blooming winter garden? Does "sew" derive from "sow"?





Vining ruffles and pintucks adorn the nursery walls. Who needs to wait for spring? . . .


  







































































I hope you enjoyed my nursery garden!

Wow, what incredible eye candy. I have done a bit of French Heirloom sewing in my day and have a real appreciation of all that hand done work. Most of mine was done on the machine with a bit of success. But the old stuff....yum, yum. Thanks for the beautiful shots

Oh, how gorgeous! Love those little dresses! Tucks, smocking, lace; who can resist it?
I was in to our Anne of Green Gables Store the other day and they had several little dresses and nightgowns which remind me of yours. I left the store swooning. I will have to go back and get one for my little granddaughter who will grow into one in a year or two. Have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi
