Come join in.........




Never heard of this?

Well..... go on over to the Mommy Community blog and join in the fun!

My parents have bought a lovely home in an over 50's /retirement village. My Mom has been going through her cupboards and sorting into boxes what she would like to give to me and to my brother. She delivered a couple of boxes the other day. Memories came alive as I unwrapped the priceless items and paged through the yellow stained photo albums .
I found these hidden inside an antique Tea-pot.........

I had totally forgotten about these name place "thingeemajigeees" that I had made for the Christmas table. Christmas of 1981 !!! I was 12, and I remember the hours I spent perfecting the petals, and carefully choosing the colour combinations. I didnt want one to look prettier than the other. They ALL needed to look perfect!

What a wonderful surprise..... thanks Mom for looking after them!

What an awesome and fun find! Ironically a week or so ago, while digging through boxes searching for something else...I ran across old drawing from when I was in fourth grade!

Hi sis! Thanks for dropping by my other site. It's nice to know a fellow Christian mommy blogger. Here is our family's main blog http://www.marriageandbeyond.com

There aren't many Christian bloggers around, so finding you is just a blessing. Thanks again for dropping by and leaving an encouraging comment. I really didn't know how to go about the meme but figured that it could be fun, that's why I jumped along.

Blessing to you and your family! :-)

It's been awhile since I visited your blog... I read all up to date! I can't believe how big Miss Tanna has gotten! My goodness... it hasn't been that long since I was here, has it?

My hubby's dad and step mom brought us a trunk full of his stuff from his childhood. There were not handpainted flowers, but there were all kinds of lovely treasures!
