Nursery - Kewpies

 

Kewpie dolls always brought a smile, the innocence of a yesterday, can still bring out a smile today.  When we reminisce, we usually indulge in memories that make us happy, and feel good.  I realized as I researched for this blog, that some of the pictures and rhymes did stir in me forgotten moments of my childhood.  A person who lives in the present, I seldom go back or think of this from the past, once I’ve lived them I move on.  So getting little snippets of another time and place was kind of nice.

nursery - my dolly

The actual events are gone, but the feeling of contentment when I read my books,  drew or made clothes for my dolls, and later fashion models, are feel good moments.  For instance, when I saw the picture that I will post next, I remember the Dutch nanny we had after my Father passed away and my Mother had to go out and work so that we could manage in our home etc.

nursery rhyme

The Nanny had such a love for her country, and she was happy to share her memories, songs and stories with us. To this day I have a strong feeling for the Nederlands, even though I’ve never been there.  She taught me a song that I  still know some of the words and the tune, even though its been years since I’ve sung or heard it, when I sing a few bars to someone from Holland, they laugh and know exactly the nursery song I’m singing. =^_^=    When we are young, we absorb and take in more than words, we understand through feelings/connection.

nursery -books

Our minds are much like our personal libraries, if we allow ourselves the luxury of quality time with our”Selves” it is amazing the awesome discoveries will find.  As adults we often forget to take in the whole picture, ie. read the whole book, we read the summary and think we  know it all.  We don’t.  Make time to be with your”self”, it is important, you are unique and complex, and I assure you, you are worth knowing.

nursery basket

I had fun this morning finding a little yellow basket, along the way I got to revisit nursery rhymes and snippets of another time.We talk of trying to find harmony in our lives with others, personally I find that peace of mind begins at home (within our selves)
