A Few Lovelies
My mother-in-law brought this box over to me earlier this week. When I opened it, I found a stack of lovely, old hankies.
They belonged to her mother. I love them! We sat and went through them all and she told me stories that she remembered about them.
I so wish I had known her. Farmboy adored her and he is always saying how well we would have gotten on together.
On the creative front, I have been a busy bee with multiple projects going on. Here is a journal and a couple of tags I made to send to the sweet lady who gave me my 100th heart on my Etsy shoppe.
Thank you so much Granny's Stuff!
And this was a nice surprise.
I received a phone call yesterday afternoon which turned stressful. My own fault... it shouldn't have because in reality it really wasn't something to stress over. Anyway, I called my stress reliever, farmboy, but he was on a conference call so couldn't help at that moment. While I was waiting for him to call me, I pulled down this silver dish from a cupboard without really thinking about it and started pulling out all of the creamy buttons from my button box that was sitting in front of me. I wasn't thinking at all about what I was doing as I did it. Two things were discovered in the process however. One sorting buttons is SO calming!!! And two, I had no idea that I had that many creamy buttons! They are so pretty, I'm going to leave them in the dish, which is deeper than this picture looks, and put them on the buffet in the dining room!
I have a list of things to do today longer than my arm, so I'm off to it. Have a beautiful weekend and a Happy Father's Day to all of the daddies in your lives!
