A few weeks ago I grabbed a handful of cards tied together with ribbon on a trip to the flea market. I could tell they were old and all had a baby theme. My excitement could only be contained as far as the quiet of the car before I gently slipped the ribbon off.
A full packet of cards saved by a mother from birth announcement to age three, including party invitations.
Easter greetings, Christmas wishes, along with little notes from Aunts and Uncles.
**to open the images in flickr you simply click on the picture, in the upper right corner you will see a tab that reads view in all sizes, click it, you will then be prompted to a page where you can download the image in several different sizes of your choice to your computer for printing.**
One opened to a beautiful honey comb...I audibly sighed...alone in the car.
These are the images I savor and scan to open my posts. A happenstance as it was from day one. Simple sweet treasures I oh and ah over not only for the image but also for the penmanship and thoughts. Do you think asking for a new scanner for Mother's Day was an odd request?
For my Mother I sewed up this sweet little linen and feed sack bucket. The print was for her birthday which just happens to fall the day before Mother's Day.
This one is my largest size yet. I added a pocket and handles to try out something new. Looking at it now I need to decrease the upper band and increase the pocket size. Hindsight!
Never one to follow the crowd, it appears I am passing this trait on to my daughter. My boys were forced to take gifts to their teachers. My daughter is the opposite. We fashioned up a tissue box and loaded it with dollar bills connected with washi tape.(something we found on Pinterest) A sweet poem on the back reads: Don't shed a tear, I'll come back to visit next year.
