White gauze and roses

All I can say today is that I agree with June .
I am loving making these rosettes!

A few nights ago I grabbed a piece of
white gauze fabric
from my stash and sat down with hubby to watch tv.
I started ripping strips, sewing them into rosettes
and adding vintage buttons.

I will just make one more.

okay, maybe two at the most.


I had so much fun I just couldn't stop.

I guess this could be a *good* addiction.

Aren't they so pretty?

Before I knew it I had a bowl full of these
little goodies. I think I may just leave them
as is to display for now.

Enjoy your White Wednesday and please visit Kathleen at Faded Charm for more WW posts~ Blessings~

Just had to share this AND more news ~

can you believe we are expecting
grandchild number 7 ?

Our precious Annika will be a big sister.

just found out last night.
barely in the oven so it will be awhile yet...lol

Mommy and daddy are trying to get her to say
Big sister and it comes out
big *finster*

The *news* was posted on facebook last night so
I had to call my mom and tell her before
someone who isn't even related said something to her.

I don't think some of this modern technology
is all it is cracked up to be. News sure spreads
fast these days. Either by facebook, texting, Iphone...I sure miss good old fashioned
letters coming in the mail don't you??

Antique lace, jelly jars and candlelight

I found a little time to create last week. I covered jelly jars with antique lace
and then added some bling.

Guess what girls? I finally purchased a new camera! I am still reading up on it, but I hope to use it soon.
{if I can figure it out...lol}
Have a wonderful Monday~

you and for me.

in the name of the Lord*.

Cream Puffs Anyone ?

Am I making you hungry yet?
I love these cream puffs!

I purchase them in the frozen section at the
grocery store. Just thaw and serve.
Can't get any easier than that!
Cute...mini cream puffs. Great for a quick
dessert for showers and parties.
Here is the lid so you can rush right out and buy some. lol

I have been creating some lace covered candle holders and some easter eggs and I hope to share them with you soon.

I pray that my camera holds out. I used it this morning and then the error message *E18* came up, but then it started working fine. I suppose it is just a matter of time. When my other camera had that message, it was done for. How can a blogger survive without a camera for even one day?? I was going to get a new camera for my birthday, but couldn't make a decision so I put it on hold. Guess I better start lookin...

Have a beautiful day~

The beauty of white...

My daughter gave this piece to me as part of
my Christmas gift last year. The original use is for six candles, but I purchased
three roses with babies breath and used them
instead of candles ~

I found this beautiful bird candleholder last weekend on
our outing. They had three different sizes
and I purchased the *middle* size. I thought it was so unique ~

Enjoy your day today and please visit Kathleen

Fairy shoes, fairy wings, fairy party!

A special little granddaughter
had quite a special party and we were
invited to attend.

Annika's 3rd birthday fairy party

complete with headband,
fairy ring,
fairy sparkles,
pretty hair,
fairy wings,
and fairy shoes.
{dh blowing the balloon...lol}
even fairy toys!
alas, the little fairy's shoes were too big
and they kept falling off, but she happily
kept putting them back on.

The little fairy had such a grand time.
she rolled and she laughed,
she exclaimed *YES* when someone
gave the pretty little fairy some candy,
she even had a little attitude now and then,
{imagine that...lol}
but overall the sweet little fairy had a wonderful
time turning 3 years old ~

We welcomed Spring with a new grandchild!

What a way to welcome the
first day of spring... with a brand new life.

Our sixth grandchild.

Little Kanaan was not due for another 2 and 1/2 weeks,
but he decided he would make his arrival early.
Isn't he a doll baby?
6 lbs 8 ounces and 19 inches long
Look at his hair...the nurses say it is red
time will tell.
Would love another redhead in the family.
His daddy {our son} is a redhead.
The happy family... well little Keira wasn't here for the picture, but she loves her baby brother !

I am one exhausted grandma today! Saturday we decided to head out to a huge antique mall and other shopping that is about an hour and a half away. Had a fun time, but I was tired and SO ready to come home when we were done shopping. We got the phone call on the way home...

"Hi mom...just want to let you know that we are headed to the hospital"....REALLY????

He called again about 11:30 pm telling us that precious baby had arrived. YAY!

Sunday morning we went to church and then right on to Annika's 3rd birthday party and from there we took the two hour drive to the hospital to see our precious new Kanaan...very tired today , but it was so worth it holding another precious new life that God has given.

Today I am not doing anything!! lol Blessings~
