Stitches in Time.







Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
-W.B. Yeats

  5. Alfonso Cuaron's A Little Princess is my favorite movie. So beautiful. I love all the greens and yellows. I hope to have a bedroom like the one that Sarah and Becky get in the end someday...
