A Gift!!

Today I came home from work and there was present on the kitchen table.....with my name on it.  It was from one of the Flea Market Friends.

It was a gift for the Nana to be!! As I've mentioned daughter number 1 and her husband are expecting a baby girl mid July.  Of course, I am so looking forward to being a Nana!!

There is a lovely note on the back, telling me that the picture is a page from a cloth book dated 1955, and that she used her Grandma's pinking shears from the 1940's to cut the page.  This picture will hang in a special place...I am not sure if I will hang it in my crafting room or if I will hang it in my bedroom.

I am traveling to Atlanta tomorrow to attend daughter number 1's baby shower. Looking forward to a couple of days off and spending time with my daughter. We are planning to go to an antique show on Friday afternoon, and I have a little shop in mind that I would like to visit.



  1. This is too cute! Vintage cloth books have the sweetest pictures ever! Congrats on becoming a Nana!
