Sharon, wonderful article, as usual! You are such a wonderful story teller! I could imagine you standing in the room and all your mom's friends looking at your crown...that must have been hilarious!LOL
I forgot to say I also love violets and their scent.
Thanks for making my day!
I'm here with Adina, Sharon, and I can't believe those ladies weren't totally captivated by your splendor! I picture my own little g-granddaughters and couldn't summon any anger whatsoever. You don't have a photo of that, by any chance, do you? What a sight that must have been.
I remember every spring going down to the creek that flowed by the end of our street to pick violets with my next-door neighbor. What lovely memories! Thanks for another great article, Sharon! I'd love to see a picture of your costume! ;-)
No photos of little girls who misbehaved.
I am with my 4 year old grand son this week, and he and I make up really great stories for his Star Wars characters. My son just shakes his head.
But... Since I am in the cold north with no computer except my cell phone, one thank you will have to reach all of you.
