Janie and Jack

I just love shopping for socks for Dulcie at Janie and Jack. Theirs are so sweet with their embroidery, bullion roses, French knot flowers and tiny scalloped edges. Holland wishes they carried socks in her size too but alas, they stop at size 6 - 8. They carry other lovely things as well but I'm especially enchanted by their socks and tights. Their gift wrap is so pretty too, boxes in a floral print with scalloped tissue paper and grosgrain ribbons.

Holland's Recital

Holland, tying her pointe shoe ribbons in the dressing room.

At Carolina's after her recital. I wish I had taken a picture of our
dessert, a Carolina Brittle Basket.

This isn't the best photograph but it's a sweet one.

After Dulcie's ballet recital...

Dulcie wondering if she wants to dine at Anson, 'the pink restaurant.'

Her nosegay and menu...

My little girl still needs her tip toes in the ladies room.

Happy Mother's Day!

A friend asked and yes, the picture in Wednesday's post is of the gate opening to our backyard. Our fence and trellis is heavily laden with Confederate Jessamine (Trachelospermum jasminoides), a pinwheel shaped flower in white against green leaves. Each time I walk outside I smell the air, perfectly laced with its sweet Jasmine fragrance.
