Pearls and Lace Thursday #2

First Graces and First Prayers
These are books by Tasha Tudor, the famed and loved author and illustrator
of lovely childrens books. The pictures inside are wonderful. Full of colors that delight the eye.

I remember them always being a part of my life from childhood.
The inscription in the front is more lovely handwriting: these books are
from my beloved godparents who treated us like we were their grandchildren.

The simplicity of the artwork, the tenderness of the drawings,
the depiction of childhood and love. Prayers and Graces.
Makes me think of a little child's head bowed as he kneels at the bedside,
saying his nightly prayers:
"Deah Woahd"
(that's what it sounded like when my own little son prayed)
Thank you for joining me for Pearls and Lace Thursday #2!

Hi Doni,

Hi Doni,
I just found your site and it is really beautiful. I am now a follower. I love this post. I worked as a pastor in the Methodist church for some time and someone donated a stack of this kind of beautiful old gem. They are so precious that I have them in my china cabinet.

Your lovely table vignette is so soft and romantic!

I so LOL'ed at your comment on my page about putting flowers in Humpty Dumpty's head! So funny!

Have a lovely Friday!

Hi Doni!
Gosh girl, one day when I stay home for an extended amount of time, I want to play "pearls and laces" with you one Thursday!!!
What treasured heirlooms you have above...so sweet that you kept them all this time.

I wanted to stop in and tell you...
I was at an antique fair this weekend when I stumbled on a candy tin just like the one in your profile photo...I IMMEDIATELY THOUGHT OF YOU! However, I had it in my hand to buy but next to it was a "Jacob's chocolate tin" from New Orleans...I had to have it. I couldn't do both, so being from Louisiana...I chose the "Jacob's tin" (but I still thought of you anyway!!!!)
Have a wonderful weekend sweetie!!!
