A PRIM TALE...

Hi Prim girls... Today I want to share with you a real prim story.... Usually I use this blog only to present my patterns, but today I wanna do something different... Behind all my patterns there is always a story, a place I visited, a passion.... Let me tell you something about the very special pattern I will present you next week...

I love Salem MA. It's an ancient and beautiful little town... and in the centre of this beautiful New England little town there is an old old OLD cemetery. In this old old old cemetery there are two tombstones.... One is the tombstone of Timothy Brown, and the other one is the tombstone of his wife Mary... She died along with their baby few months after she gave birth... And the year after Timothy died too... We don't know the reasons of his death... but I want to think that he was so sad for having lost his wife and child that he gave up....


I have always felt a deep feeling for this ancient family, and every time I visit Salem I visit also their tombs.... and I leave 3 pennies... and pray for them...

And so I decided to dedicate this pattern to them... this is just a glimpse of the pattern... I'll post it next week... But I really wanted to share their story with you all :)))

Salem was always a favorite place to visit when I lived on the East Coast....

My husband and I are visiting Salem next week. We go up about every other year and love it as you do. We try to make a point of visiting the Memorial stones placed to commemorate the innocents who were killed by some fearful, small-minded people, many years ago. There's also a beautiful garden in the back of the Roper mansion that we visit. We're usually the only ones there. A quiet spot I love away from tourists. Lovely post.
