Well I have been a little busy. Nothing major going on, but catching up with all the things I had not been doing while I was sick. Just about as good as new now, and getting things around the house in order. I forgot to post about our friends outing last month. You all know a lot of us friends get together and have lunch quite often. Well two of those friends have birthdays in January and we celebrated both of them at lunch one day.
Jane and Beverly are sisters and have been friends of my family for years. Jane's son and Holly went to school together. I had never gone to a thrift store until I met Jane. Thanks Jane.... you know it's a favorite place of mine to shop now. And they are both my gambling partners. We have had so many happy and fun memories made on a girls trip to Mississippi and Alabama. I think a such trip is so overdue. Got to do that soon. We are not getting any younger, huh???
I got some stitcheries stained and finished up this past week. Holly had a meeting on Tuesday and I picked up Darbee Rae from school and we had lunch and then took her to her art class. That was an experience for this Nana. I was amazed at how rude and disrespectful kids can be. Had I been that poor teacher I would have thrown my hands up and walked out. Enough said.....
Mr. P and his siblings have had to put his Mom in a Nursing Home. He was at her house a while back looking for some documents when he ran across this old box. Knowing how I love old things he brought it home to me.
I was even more excited when I opened it and saw the contents. It was clothes that his uncle had worn as a baby. They were prim perfect. And very old.
There were two little hand sewn shirts
And this little bonnet or I guess I should say cap since it was for a boy. See how old they are? I was so proud to get them and have them displayed on a table.
Remember the old stroller Mr. P. surprised me with for Christmas? Well I have plans for it when the weather gets warmer and I can display it on the porch or carport but for now, it has found a spot in the great room.
Nellie fits in the seat just perfectly. She is holding a pin keep that says Primitives. Quite fitting don't you think?
I am wishing for all of you a great week with warmer temperatures heading your way. So many of you have seen so much snow. I have so enjoyed seeing all your pictures, but just that little we had a few weeks back was enough for me. But guess what? We are again under a Winter Storm Watch for several days this coming week. Not only the "S" word, but there is talk of ICE also. That scares me as I sure do not want to loose power. Guess it is a good thing that I added this old quilt to the bed.
I remember as a child when I would sleep with my grandmother on her feather bed, we stayed warm with quilts. But as I grew older and married , here at the home place we sleep under blankets. Well this year it has been so cold, I decided to pull out one of the many quilts I have that belonged to my precious grandmother and great aunt. Instead of using this one in my prim decor, once again it is doing what it was intended to do when it was stitched many years ago. Which makes me wonder. Do you sleep under a blanket or use your quilts to stay warm?
I have so enjoyed your stopping by and visiting with me this evening. Hope your weekend has been a good one, memories were made and you are refreshed and ready to face another week.
Until next time. Warm blessings........
