“For a moment Anne’s heart fluttered queerly and for the first time her eyes faltered under Gilbert’s gaze and a rosy flush stained the paleness of her face. It was as if a veil that had hung before her inner consciousness had been lifted, giving to her view a revelation of unsuspected feelings and realities. Perhaps, after all, romance did not come into one’s life with pomp and blare, like a gay knight riding down; perhaps it crept to one’s side like an old friend through quiet ways; perhaps it revealed itself in seeming prose, until some sudden shaft of illumination flung athwart its pages betrayed the rhythm and the music, perhaps. . . perhaps. . .love unfolded naturally out of a beautiful friendship, as a golden-hearted rose slipping from its green sheath. ”

L.M. MontgomeryAnne of Avonlea

If you grew up with Anne Shirley then I most certainly do not need to tell you of the wonders of pearls or of Gilbert Blyth.  The quote above is one of my most favorite, when Anne realizes the love she had been searching for all of her life, no not the tall, dark, broody man she had once dreamed of. No, her dear friend Gil.  The one person that drove her crazy, that pushed her boundaries, made her succeed and always kept her grounded, her old school chum Gilbert, the man that couldn’t give her marble halls or diamond sunbursts was not only good enough, but the one she had been waiting for.  Now, growing up with the books was magical but even more delightful was when Sullivan Entertainment and Canadian Television aired a mini series of Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea in the mid to late 1980s.  The characters were incredibly cast and the costumes, to die for.  They brought many a young girl’s vivid imagination of the film to Technicolor reality.  Now one could talk of Anne all day and how wonderfully perfect Megan Follows portrayed her but Anne would only be as good as her partner was and he was grand as grand could be. So it was with a heavy heart that we learned the news of Jonathon Crombie’s passing last month. So for my craft today I wanted to honor him and all the lessons that Gilbert taught me.  Stay grounded, push yourself, be true to yourself, and most importantly, sometimes that which you search for the most is right there in front of you.

You will need:

  • Crafting pearls
  • Two nesting vases
  • Flowers

How to:

  • Nest the smaller of the vases inside the larger
  • Pour the pearls in the space between the two – I had to use a paper funnel for help
  • Pour water into the smaller vase and arrange flowers

In loving memory of Jonathan,
