I shall have afternoon tea parties every week.
I shall have a beautiful garden that is always visited by lovely song birds, butterflies, & bees.
There shall be flowering trees lining my yard.
I shall live right next door to my mother with my three beautiful children."
Now, I used to have weekly sewing/knitting/crochet gatherings on Sunday afternoons while on bedrest with my son's pregnancy... then we did have weekly afternoon playdates with his friends and often I'd bring baked goods or picnic goods for all the mothers, then my husband and I had afternoon picnics all summer when the girls were babies.
I do have a lovely yard thanks only to Mother Nature and very little work on our behalf (allergies) and it is frequented by all of those wonderful creatures and the perimeter is lined with flowering trees.
I have three beautiful children, but there is no way that I am going to live right next door to my parents... well maybe later? :)
I used direct to paper techniques to make the gorgeous paisley pattern pop off the paper. The copper paper is amazingly shimmery and doesn't take away from the vintage look. The photos are from some sort of period piece fair in the Boston Commons when I was 4 years old.

I love your album page, the paper complements the pictures very nicely and the poem.... I just love it. It sounds like a take on some other poems I have found.. When I am old I shall purple; when I am old I shall wear plaid (for the men); and when my friends and I are old... wear purple ...seek out every garage sale. Esther
thank you :) those are just my own words from my own daydreams when i was around that age and just a little older... i used to tell my mom, everyday how i would live next door to her and everything about my yard... plus when i was about 8 i was saving my money (i was very much the entrepreneur) and the only thing i allowed myself to buy for me was a set of crystal dinnerware and punchbowl with punch glasses and a crystal tea cup set!
