This is a wonderful 
Memorial Project
hosted by
 The  Holocaust Museum
in Houston, Texas!

The Butterfly Project
is about collecting
1.5 million
handmade butterflies
to honor the
memory of the
 1.5 million children 
who perished
in the Holocaust!

Please join me in this
historical endeaver to
 honor the memory of
these precious children!

To get more information about this project:
Go visit Trudi at her blog site:

to read more about this
beautiful way to
help people remember
never to forget the 
tragedy of the Holocaust! 

The Butterfly Project is based on this
 heartwrenching but beautiful poem.

I Never Saw Another Butterfly

 The last, the very last,

So richly, brightly, dazzlingly yellow
Perhaps if the sun’s tears would sing
against a white stone....

Such, such a yellow
Is carried lightly ’way up high.
It went away I’m sure
because it wished
to kiss the world good-bye.

For seven weeks I’ve lived in here
Penned up inside this ghetto.
But I have found what I love here.
The dandelions call to me
And the white chestnut branches in the court.

Only I never saw another butterfly.
That butterfly was the last one.
Butterflies don’t live in here, in the ghetto.

Written by Pavel Friedman,
June 4, 1942
Born in Prague on Jan. 7, 1921.
Deported to the
Terezin Concentration Camp
on April 26, 1942.
Died in Aushchwitz on Sept. 29, 1944.

While Mother Rests!!

This image reminds me of  a very 
 precious time in my life
when my children were just
little tykes, scampering and
playinng all over the house. 

 I can remember sitting down
to take a break from my
busy housework and picking up
the newspaper but instead of reading,
I was more interested in watching
my little ones playing  together!

They are older now,
but we still find the time to
make tents with chairs and blankets,
creating papier mache with
flour, water, and newspaper, 
fixing teddybear pancakes for the girls 
and now football pancakes for the boys
(they've outgrown the teddy bears and rabbits)! 

They are growing up so fast and as
I try to hold on to every precious minute, 
one day, I know I will turn around and
they will be gone and living their own lives. 

 I think we'll have pancakes for supper tonight!

This is a nice vintage photo
of a lovely wedding party
looing so fine in their
beautiful wedding attire!
Everyone looks so
 happy and content!
  But, tell me,
which one is the groom?

This photo  probably dates
back to the early 1920's !!

The bride's dress is much shorter
than the maid of honor's dress
 and even shorter than her veil!!

Those Glorious Flapper Days!!
