Me & Grandma

Hi ya all

 I am loving seeing all the Christmas decorations on all the linky parties. I have just a few little special things I am showing. This little Hallmark ornament was my Grandmother's I set it in one of my silver ladles

                                                                         ( I know I showed this last year)                 

Then how about a funny picture of me. I see all the blogs where I am sure ladies have taken a photography class and have their cameras in front of them so here is my version LOL

This Santa sweatshirt I have on well It was my youngest daughters   when she was in high school LOL . I loved it because     of the button Santa. This was when girls would wear a sweatshirt about 6 sizes to large for them. Remember that era?

I also ordered me a gift from Ballard Design. I LOVE these buttons named button garland on line or in the book. I measured them and 9 feet of mother of pearl buttons , on each spool

I will play them year long . That is how you girls get what you want buy it for yourself right? Maybe just us single gals do that, no I have always done that LOL

Ok Now I have got to go someplace to get a haircut, I usually go to a girl near Jefferson City however I can't get that far today . I did drive to church Sunday so I think I can get out to a local salon
                                   Linky parties for this week I am joining

    Red hat, I am lonesome.
    Red hat, are you free?
    Red hat, please consider
    Coming home with me.

    I need a companion,
    One who’ll warm my head;
    I think you’ll do nicely,
    Hat of brilliant red.

    You’re the warmest color,
    Not like blue or green—
    Red hat at the vendor’s,
    Red hat, you’re my queen.

  9. Janice that Santa sweatshirt is CA-UTE! I'd have stollen....I mean borrowed it too! Lol! And your Grandmothers Hallmark ornament is a treasure. I only have a few things from my Grandmother, but they're my most special treasures. I'm also so glad to hear that you're getting out and about. Gotta hit those after Christmas sales girlfriend! *winks*
    I'm sorry I haven't gotten back to you earlier (Please forgive me?) I've been knee deep in family drama....I thought it was going to be a nice quiet family Christmas this year, but NOOOOOO! Didn't happen. So I'm playing catch up and I'll be sending you an email stat. Vanna
