delaneygates Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Give a woman some spools, and you occupy her for a day. #faffing 6d

delaneygates Some much-needed Parisian dreaminess. Because Monday. Amiright, y'all? The sunburst brooch, pearls, hat pins, and tape measure are from my fiancé's grandmother. The rhinestones on the bottom left are torn from the collar of a shirt which I sadly ruined with fingernail polish, and everything else is from our adventures in antiquing. 1w

delaneygates This week, on her 92nd birthday, a wise and energetic woman told me that when she prays, she asks the Lord to take her wherever He needs her, and to please give her the courage to get there. I think we should all be like her. Happy Sunday. (A few of these spools are from @drewmeans60. Thank you again for those, lovely Linda! ) 1w

delaneygates February 1909. Dear, Ada - I haven't forgotten you entirely. I'm going to surprise you one of these days with a big fat letter. Tell Johnnie Marvin I said hello and tell him I've looked my eyes nearly out every time I go downtown, but I haven't seen his manly form walking toward me! Which of your Uncle Lee's children was it that died? As Ever, Gladys #Dear_Ada 3w

delaneygates My fiancé gifted me a new pink kayak over the weekend and I'm trying to think of a name for it. Finalists are Tickled Pink, Pink Slip, and Floyd. (Get it?!) I'd love to hear some some more ideas, if you have them! 3w

delaneygates Before work this morning, I went fishing by myself. It was so peaceful. Whenever I'm hiking on a trail, (and recently) fishing or in a kayak, I feel so at peace. I love that there are only a couple other people here and there when I hike or fish, but at the same time, it kind of makes me sad that more people aren't outside utilizing these beautiful resources. 2mon
