Soiled Doves and flowers

Today we went to a gallery that had an exhibit of old photographs of women in brothels.The pictures are from the 1800's. Some of the women where very beautiful, and had on dresses and hats that I would even wear today. The madams looked like some tough woman. Almost like men and very large women that looked like they could hold their own with a rowdy male customer.I could not take pictures so am putting one that I have on my cd's posted. When I first started out working (years ago) I had a job collecting life and health insurance. One of my clients owned a brothel, except brothel is a nice name to call these places. Yes, they were still around in the 70's and 80's. The women were very kind to me and sometimes their "friend" would pay his favorite ladies insurance for that week. That was my favorite place to collect insurance. It was a hoot. The brothel is no longer in business ( owner was arrested and finally closed down) .
I also am trying to finish up my flower beds. Have a few more to finish planting. I bought two morning glory plants to put on fence. I can't help but laugh that only a few years ago morning glories was considered a pest. Now you can buy seeds and plants. I have always loved them, especially the heavenly blue.
I even think the lowly dandelion is beautiful.

Lavender sachet

I made several lavender sachets and put on etsy.
I have a lot of dried lavender and need to use it in
something so made these cute sachets. I like to give these as a thank you. Also are cute to put in a basket with silk flowers. The angel sachet has been sold. Purchase this cat sachet at my etsy site.
Both these sachets have sold.
