Here is one of the tops they made! I also saw a feed sack skirt when I was snooping in her sewing room the other day, it was so cute!
I love this vintage picture and the sweet poem! I'm going to write it here in case the words aren't big enough for everyone to see!
If you can be a girl and glory in it, Because it is the place for you to fill, If you can be a lady every minute, Yet take all sporting chances with a will, If you hold your temper when you're ruffled, And force a smile when frowns are hovering near, Or keep the burning tongue of scandal muffled By never telling anything you hear:
If you can follow styles and wear them sweetly, But let not what you spend outweigh your brain, If you can win some goal you've sought complletely Yet know that broader reaches still remain; If you can look on modern fads and notions And find them good, but never play the fool, If you can understand all deep emotions And yet not put your life beneath their rule:
If you can wait with patience when it's needful, Yet keep no person waiting for yourself, And ok all other's troubles be most heedful, But hide your own sad stories on the shelf: If you can work hard each day and still be plucky, Or live in wealth, and wear no haughty pride, If you can count yourself as mighty lucky To have a friend at all time by your side;
If you can dream, yet sit not idly longing, Or play with ease, yet find some work to do, If you can still have faith when doubts are thronging, And be the friend you'd have one be to you; If you can love with all the soul that's in you And let the world no selfish motive see, If nothing less than what is best can win you~ you'll be the girl God meant for you to be!
A MEMORY KEEPSAKE
I love the words and meaning of this poem~~~ although I fall so short I really think these are words to try and live by!!!
On another note, I would like to share this delishious dessert with you, it's so quick and easy to make!
I call it a Dump Cake
1 can apple pie filling (you can substitute this for any pie filling you like) I like cherry
1 can blueberry pie filling
1 Tsp. cinnamon
1 stick oleo~~~ melted~~~ I put 2 sticks of butter in mine!
1 pkg. pudding cake mix (yellow)
1 cup chopped pecans
Empty the apple filling in oblong dish. Spread blueberry pie filling over the apple pie filling, Sprinkle the cinnamon over the fillings. Sprinkle pudding cake mix over the ingredients. Melt the oleo (BUTTER) and pour evenly over the pudding cake mix. Top with chopped pecans and bake about 30 min. at 350 degrees!
