Happy Mother’s Day to the Moms in my Life
70 years ago a young mom cuddled her new born baby boy.  She was in love with her new life… a wonderful husband and a skinny little baby that was always hungry. Times were hard for the three of them however. A horrible war still raged in two major areas of the world.
An Atomic Bomb was being developed and would be detonated within the next years’ time – August 6, 1945.
On May 8th, 1945 Nazi Germany signed its instrument of surrender.
Life went on… after the hard times things slowly improved. The baby boy received a baby sister a year and a half later, a baby brother 5 years later and then one more sister 12 years later.
The baby boy, who had become a young man, married a beautiful young lady in September 9, 1967.  Then they in turn had two beautiful baby girls – a year and a half apart.

My Three Gals

It’s a rather complicated story filled with ups and downs.  There is happiness beyond imagination and at times sadness that seemed to have no bottom.  Yet through it all wonderful things happened.
The 23 year old young mom in 1944 is now a 93 year old woman (photo at the top) with 9 grandkids and 13 great grandkids (with another on the way in a few weeks).
Of course you have guessed by now that I am writing today about my own Mom – Marion Nellie Lincoln (nee Kirkpatrick).
Mom’s memory is still intact but there are some days she struggles with what just happened a few moments ago.  But she knows all her kids, grand kids and the great grandkids as well.  Very sharp in some ways but with fading edges in other ways.
She will not read this Blog Posting…. But Happy Mother’s Day to her – and all the other Mom’s in our family as well… Alida, Pat, Heather, Karen, Dana, Anda, Tasha, Jodi, Sarah, Jessie, and Rebecca… you gals are amazing.
Thanks Mom(s)

Fairy Stone House
A great summer for Fairies(Faeries) in this area. The amazing fact is the way that so many people have picked up the idea and are running with it.
I am now completing a number of additions of our own yard.
The one I am presenting as an idea for my fellow designers as well as lovers of all things Fairy … is the sturdy little house featured below. It took about two evenings to complete this new home. I hope the Fairies will love it as much as I do.
Enjoy!

The Fairies – or Faeries – are coming to Lakefield.. and new Hand carved Pendants with Teddy Bears
Hey Blog Readers… good news!
The Fairies of and near Lakefield Ontario are about to be featured in a big way in the next few weeks.  Through “Celtic Connections” and the Proprietor Mary McGillis folk will be able to see real evidence of Fairies (Faeries) in their community.  Mind you Misty Hollow Carving will have a hand in this adventure as well. Misty Hollow (that’s me) will be carving a number of Fairy Doors for the businesses of Lakefield.  When installed the doors will provide access for the Fairies to the businesses.  They also will be a neat Tourist attraction for this summer.
I can’t wait.
Today with this posting I am presenting my new series of carvings. These carvings are made as a possible Pendant for necklaces.
Using my carved heart design from a few weeks ago… I have added some playful Teddy Bears in a number of positions with the heart.
I hope you enjoy this new series. Let me know what you think. Thanks.
