Happy Birthday

Jean Zartman was born March 11, 1942  I believe. 

She was a missionary in Iceland, before she married and moved to Uruguay where my husband was born on a kitchen table ( :

Although we don’t interact much, due to the fact that she lives in Mexico and we are in Minnesota, I have learned a few things from her.

Her neatness in embroidery has challenged me to be more careful and patient in any sewing projects that I attempt.  Her use of "linens" on the table is something that I enjoy as well. 

Sometimes I feel silly being creative with clip art and photos. Seeing her creativity in their house in Monterrey made it a "real" home, and it reminded me that creativity doesn’t have to equal tackiness ( :

We also share the enjoyment of plants.  Neither of us have much if any room to grow things ( I live in an apartment), but appreciate the beauty of whatever we can convince to come out of the soil (ground or pot)!

    Is that plant growing near your place? It has a nasturium at the bottom, which you can eat (as long as it hasn’t been sprayed with chemicals). It is supposed to have a nice peppery taste, both the leaves and the flower. I tried it last year, when James kept picking them out of my hanging baskets. He tried them, too… and spit them out. 🙂
