"Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May."

if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive . . . "
Eleonora Duse

Preamble To the Confederate States Constitution:

We, the people of the Confederate States, each State acting in its sovereign
and independent character, in order to form a permanent federal government,
establish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, and secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and our posterity - invoking the favor and guidance of
Almighty God - do ordain and establish this Constitution for the Confederate
States of America.

A special Easter Recipe for You!!
Dying Easter Eggs is part of the celebration of the season. Below is a wonderful 
recipe for dying eggs 'The Natural Way". Shown on this page are 2 examples 
of "Natural Colors" .  Serendipity is like a rainbow of colors.

For a full explanation of Serendipity and "How Toos" please visit here:

Hippity Hoppity Easter

Natural Egg Dye

Spring Chicken Yellow

1 tsp Turmeric
2/3 cup boiling water
1 tsp vinegar

Easter Bunny Brown
(beige to brown)

1 heaping Tsp instant coffee
2/3 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp vinegar

Spotted Eggs
Put about 2 tsp. of cooking oil in your dye. When you dip in your egg, it makes the dye not stick to the places where the oil is, thus making mysterious spots on your egg!

**Special Notice about Changes at Webring Org!!**

Webring Org has implemented a new "Auto Ring Check" function that began operation in March. Several of the sites in Southern Women have experienced the growing pains of our new Auto Check.  We have tried to get these sites corrected and back in the ring as fast as we could.

You can help!!

If all ladies would check their Southern Women Webring fragment this would help tremendously.  Just be sure that the links are all correct, that you have the correct site ID# in your fragment, and that your current email is in the fragment.

Editing your site is quite simple:

Go to the Southern Women Site ,

Scroll down until you find EDIT MY SITE.

You will need your SITE ID# and your password to EDIT.

From this link you can change 'any part of' or all your information.

If each lady would check her Webring Fragment then we would have a near perfect ring.  It would save us valuable time and effort.  We now have 300+ sites in the ring and anything to facilitate our efforts will be appreciated!!

**Also please note that any site in the queue for over 7 days is automatically removed.**

Southern Women Webring!!
New Members!!

'The graphic Addict strikes again'...HeHe. read that  correctly..*S*.   Southern Women Webring's graphic addict has HIT again...*S*  The website has been completely revamped.  New Logo and new fragment graphics (in different colors I might add)...*grin*.  You may visit the Southern Women Website and see for yourself.  If you wish, you may grab the new ring fragment and logo.  THIS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT.  I am so fickle that no one should have to keep up with my wild hairs...LOL
