Flowers Arrived; doesn’t the gift of flowers just make you smile!

Posted on

Daughter and son-in-law had flowers sent to my house; meant to arrive Easter weekend.  Since we live as far away as we do from urban centers, it takes UPS a bit longer to deliver, so the flowers arrived a couple days later than they planned, but the flowers did arrive.

Came in a florist box that looked like long stemmed roses might be inside.    Opened the box to find fresh spring flowers, a hefty square glass vase and florist preservative packet, along with a happy greeting card from my daughter and son-in-law.

I learned later in talking to my daughter that she had chosen another arrangement, but where we are located there are no florists in close by vicinity that could accommodate the choice she made.    I am happy with what was sent – fresh spring flowers that are still looking fresh a week later.   Picture below.

Show and Tell, right?

I crocheted 2 pairs of wrist cuffs (above) using fun fur yarn for my two teenage granddaughters.

And I crocheted each of them a pair of fingerless gloves


Isn’t she talented? Daughters scrapbooking gift

Posted on

I wanted to show a bit of my daughter’s beautiful scrapbooks. The photos are of two miniatures she made for me and ‘Dad’ as ‘remembrances’ when she and the kids joined her husband at his newly assigned duty base. (He is military, returning Iraq veteran and currently in Iraq again in his second deployment).

Crochet Market Bag, one for baby too!

Posted on


I made a wee little market type bag using baby yarn, a bit of a diaper type bag for extra diapers, bibs, a bottle, an extra outfit, maybe. Should tuck nicely into Mom’s purse.


And then I made another adult size market bag but not for marketing, to hang on my bedpost as a place to tuck away my nightclothes.
