Just a few of my very favorite things ~

My sweet friend Lisa and I send each another birthday gifts every year.
Most times they are late but you don't care...
because a gift is a gift!!!
Especially from someone that "gets" you!

My birthday is the day after Christmas (yeah, it ain't cool)
and I received a box FULL of treasures from Lisa last week.!!!!
It's all SO AMAZING!
I took a few photos to share the goodness with you.
I may have to explain a few things...
because I'm a weirdo and she knows what I love!

From left to right: Lisa went to an estate sale of a lady that loved sewing baby dresses.
So she bought homemade patterns and even some items that were in progress of being
created! Old lavender colored seam binding, a handmade tag from Lisa....
marbled book cover interiors.

Look at these gorgeous calendar pages!!!! I'm going to HAVE to frame them!
In the my very favorite gift.
It's a small deer!!!
I love nature and he is so beautiful to me!

Fragments of amazing lace, fabrics, sweet books and patterns from the sewing lady.

Then there's this gorgeousness.
A beautiful altered box that Lisa made.
It's filled with even MORE lace fragments and treasures!

He really is so beautiful ~ maybe not to everyone but he is to me.

I found the perfect wooden box at TJ Maxx to house him too.
I'm going to create an assemblage with Taco as the star (of course I named him!)
Just wait, it will be wonderful! I'll be sure to share with you too!

In other news....our front porch is looking pretty good this spring!!!
I had to share a little photo ~

Clara and Murray are growing like little weeds!!!! Clara's 8 now and Murray will be 5 in September!

Baby Owen is now FIVE months old and such a happy angel!!!!

I finally bought new glasses and still am trying to adjust to the progressive lenses.
Good grief. What a labor that is!
I'm still using my readers to look at the computer screen after spending 275.00 on the glasses.

And lastly...a precious Mother's Day gift from Heather and David.
A sweet canvas filled with photos of all of my babies and grandbabies!!!!!
It's so beautiful to me.

I hope you all are doing so good. Please forgive my absence.
Life takes over sometimes and you just have to live it!

Hugs and love to you all,

I've been the lucky enough to get packages from Lisa, and they are breathtaking events. She finds the best stuff. Love your porch picture- it just says "relax". And you're blessed with a beautiful family.

You don't look old enough for those boys. Ah, men. Is one of them DH? and is there one girl? If this is so, not wonder life gets busy. I have enough trouble with keeping up with 4 and grands and great grands. And how many of those do you have ? It is good to see you back and waiting to see the finish for the deer cubby.
Hugs and Blessings
