Happy 2nd Anniversary!

24 Nov

In honor of the occasion, Elfcroft has a new header image of cotton fabrics.

Since the Middle Ages, silver and gold have been traditional anniversary gifts for 25th and 50th celebrations .  In 1937 the National Retail Jewelers expanded the traditions recommending gifts for each year.  Cotton became the new tradition for 2nd anniversaries representing “durability and the ability to adapt”….a fitting description of two years of blogging experience.

For Elfcroft, blogging is:

  • Antidote to demands of a career in manufacturing
  • “OJT” or On the Job Training
  • A laboratory and experiments
  • New “playground” to meet longtime friend
  • Discovery process of my “inner” writer
  • Practice making the “ordinary” interesting with photos and storytelling

If Elfcroft did not post these photos and stories…the projects would surely slip from recall…as I focus on the next thing at home and in the garden.
