Tuesdays with a Twist Link Party

Our News This Week...  I've sewn two more nap mat covers for little girls skipping off to Kindergarten.  They are pretty easy, but a tutorial will be coming soon.  I guess the plastic cover that comes on the mats can be uncomfortable and kind of scratchy?  The last two covers were made with a super soft flannel fabric in a pattern from Frozen.  Everyone loves Elsa and Anna, right?  ;-)

 These are Stargazer Lilies as they begin to fade.  I love all the different shades of magenta and pink!

Remembering My Family

The baby in this photograph is my Daddy, being held by his Dad.  Considering the size of that cute little guy, I am guessing the picture was snapped in 1930.

These dear family members are in heaven now.  Most of their bodies are buried in the same cemetery.  Decoration for this particular plot is later in August.  It is the time of year for our community to remember loved ones.

My blog has been somewhat quiet as I create bouquets for the event.  There's something very soothing about arranging flowers for people I love.  It's interesting how certain plants will always remind me of specific relatives.

Create a Quick Cow Gift Card

This blue eyed beauty just had her first birthday.  She is such a sweet little neighbor.  Anytime Emery notices Handsome Husband outside, she makes a funny screeching noise that's just for him, and wiggles until he comes to her.  We are very blessed to be her honorary grandparents.  What a cutie pie!

Tuesdays with a Twist Link Party

Our News This Week...  It has been pretty quiet around here.  We did lots of yard work on Saturday.  A nice little rainstorm came Sunday, so I spent some time in the kitchen whipping up peanut butter pie along with cream puffs.  Mmmmmm...

 These are double white hollyhocks.  Aren't they pretty?
