Karen found the verse in a book about antique sampler verses. It reminded her of her time in England when the Bluebells show their collars. We apologise for the images, but this is a very delicately coloured sampler and doesn't photographs well.
This 10 page booklet includes 3 extra borders, 2 smalls and an alphabet for personalizing the piece, plus several BE CREATIVE! ideas
Down in a greened and shady bed
A modest bluebell grew
It's stalk was bent, it hung it's head
As if to hide from view.
And yet it was a lovely flower
It's colors bright and fair
It might have graced a rosy bower
Instead of hiding there.
Then let me to the
The pretty flower
That I may also
learn to grow
In sweet humility.
