Now, to select just the perfect frame!

Wednesday morning stitching group afforded a few lovely uninteruppted hours, with the girls, to work on my 'Sweet Baby Sampler'.
There are some pretty specialty stitch flowers and bands to stitch in the next part, and I can't wait to see how this sweet sampler just blossoms!

Because it was my birthday this week, my very dear friend, Martha treated me to another very special luncheon and tea at Mrs. Bridges Pantry!  The very best present ever!
Of course we just had to tour this wonderful antique shop, just below 'Mrs. Bridges' Pantry'.  Lots of fun!

Every little detail, especially the beautiful teacups, makes this a truly delightful experience!

Our darling daughter and I share a birthday week, and we celebrated her birthday last evening.  Miss Ella decided that a "Winne the Pooh" cake was in order for the occasion!
Made by her Mommy, who loves to bake and decorate cakes. Miss Ella was beyond thrilled!
Dear Daughter & Miss Ella
Miss Ella picked out 'Hello Kitty' plates, for the occasion and laid them all out in a neat little row.

Last Sunday, our son, Kevin, his wife, Gwen, two year old Emerson, and 6 month old Harrison came to help Grammama celebrate a special birthday!  
Sweet little 6 month old Harrison, who is wearing his Daddy's sleep nightie! 
The car is all packed and Emery is getting ready to go!

There is never ending joy spent with our precious children and grandchildren.  We are treasuring these very special moments, as they are the truest and most lasting of all of our family heirlooms.

Blessings to you, dear friends, on this Sunday afternoon.

Consider the Lilies of the Field
"So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the Lilies of the Field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, that even Solomon in all his glory, was not arrayed like one of these." Matt: 6: 28-29)
