Brooch Bouquet

    I've admired Brooch Bouquets for awhile and was excited and honored when Bride, Ashley, asked me to make hers.
    She collected many brooches, pendants and earrings from family and friends and she purchased a few. I purchased a few for her, as well. We ended up with approximately 70 total in her bouquet which weighed close to 3 pounds !   
     Ashley had a couple of special
touches in her bouquet. A small photo of her deceased mom and a ring that had also belonged to her.
    We added the initials of Ashley and her groom, Jered, as 
well as all of the items given to her from everyone.
    I waited until the day of her wedding to present it to her. It turned out exactly as she wanted.

We had a wonderful visit with our new grandson, Jacksun, today.
His momma and I had a fun little photo shoot with him.

His little toes sticking out of the cocoon are too cute

He was so snuggly in his little stocking cap and cocoon.

Holding On

Today, I spent a few hours with my middle grandchild, Gavin.
I took note of some things about him.
He still reaches up to hold my hand and as he does, I hold his a little tighter.
He still sits next to me and fiddles with my hair, just as he has since he was a baby.
He still gets a snuggle in now and then and asks to come visit again.
He still gives me hugs and when he does, I hold him a little bit longer.
He's still seven years old, but soon will be eight.
I know one day some of these things will come to an end... 
"It's just not cool when you get older, Grandma, like when you're 9 or 10. But, I will still love you".
I'll hold on to that.... 
In my Heart....

Wedding season coming up

Wedding season is approaching and I'm helping with three !!
This arbor is one I made for my st-daughter's wedding 4 years ago, and we've used it in two weddings since.
It's a simple bamboo pole arbor with flowing white fabric. Then decorated with flowers of choice.
It was fun to make and fun to use.
