I mentioned to my sister Gwen that I loved her cotton wreath. She and her daughter Beth made it and it is very pretty. They gave me the wreath for my birthday among other pretty gifts. Cotton has been the theme of my posts here and at dolly's designs, so today I share the wreath and some childhood friends picking cotton..Yesterday I even picked a few pods myself for the first time. Come on inside....
You can see the cotton field in front of the house reflected in the windows...
They did a great job on the wreath didn't they?
I'd like for you to meet three of my childhood friends. Margaret, Jimmie and Leon.
I would go spend the night with Margaret and enjoyed it so much. She and I were in school together. They lived on a huge farm complete with crops and farm animals. They had to get up so very early to get in the eggs feed the animals, milk the cows. Sometimes they had to go out and work early in the fields before they ever went off to school.
I can remember thinking gosh they have to be so tired to do all of this before we even get off to school. Their mother was such a great cook and when we would get home from school we would have some of the best food! I remember her cream puffs and french fries the most! She was a dear woman and friends with my Grandma & Grandpa Goodson. I did enjoy being with that wonderful family, and love them till today.
I have never picked cotton before so yesterday morning I went out to the field in front of the house and picked a handful. So I'll share more photos for you to see just how pretty cotton really is.
