the three sisters
Soooo, the day after the three sisters made the "thread catchers" (see post below) they awoke to freshly fallen snow and 6 degrees outside! So what do the three sisters do? They go to a farm auction! I know, what were they thinking! Well, they are thinking layers, lots of layers! You know, underwear under the jeans, double socks, boots, the works! They sip coffee and hot soup. They still freeze! So they go back to their Mom & Dad's home to regain feeling in their toes... and play "home makeover"!
We really did! We reorganized all the closets, helped Mom weed out stuff, looked through her old pink jewelry box (I still love to do that!), went through an old trunk of plaid wool skirts and pants from high school, rescued them for future craft projects. We had so much fun. Every time I go home, I bring back a piece of my past... something that unlocks a memory that was maybe forgotten or that I want to recapture and preserve in some way. Comforts me. Makes me stay connected to my roots. I'm like that... if you didn't know.
