Silver Lined Harts

There is always a silver lining....isn't there?  To be quite honest with you, I am not an optimist.  I never have been.  I am a realist.  A skeptic.  I don't remember ever believing in Santa Claus or other mythical characters. 
But, though I am not an optimist, I still am a "hopeful".  See my last post if you want to read more.  One thing that has brought me a lot of healing has been sewing.  It ties my past to my present and also to my future.  My Nanny taught me to sew when I was little.  Together, we made a doll outfit that I came across when we were cleaning out her house.  She is now in a nursing home, her body trapped here while her mind is gone due to Alzheimer's Disease.  I have her sewing machine that she purchased and used maybe twice before she lost her eyesight.  I also have a lot of her sewing notions so  I feel connected to her when I sew.  I love sewing for my children, especially all the ruffles that little girls love!  I save every outfit I have made my daughter for her to one day look at and pass on to her children or at least play dress up with! 

I have decided to begin selling some of the things that I make.  I have a Facebook page, , and have named my business Silver Lined Harts.  My heart yearns for the silver lining.  Let me know if you are interested in purchasing something.  I have very reasonable rates and will work with you to hand select fabrics that match your personal taste!  I am excited about this new venture to share my passion with you!

If your Nanny could know what you are doing, she would be so proud! I am proud of what beautiful outfits you make. Much love and blessing for Silver Lining Harts!
