Nice little items like this used to be the kind of thing girls got at bridal showers. I acquired an album made by a young bride-to-be. I was fascinated by the gift list she had jotted down in order to write thank you notes. She received lovely household goods like a bathmat, embroidered fingertip towels and the like. Wow, have things changed! A bridal shower sure is different these days!

I think serviceberry trees are fascinating. They got the name because when they flower in the spring, the undertakers knew the ground had thawed deeply enough to bury (and have services) for the poor souls who had died over the course of winter.

You might use the molds to make little cakes of beeswax to give as gifts. Love your blog!

When I ask my little students where wool comes from, they almost always initially reply "From a wolf!" Makes sense on a phonological level.

Hint for the tub: Mr. Clean magic erasers. A certain amount of elbow grease is rewarded by an incredibly clean tub. Love your blossoms.
