Aww...this is such a endearing memorial post to your grandmother. Happy 100th to her! I know she was with you in spirit smiling away. Btw...love that lavender. Purple next of course yellow is one of my favorite colors. Reading this post is a nice way to start off the weekend.
She she definately would have been there smiling at me Sonya. Thanks for sharing the celebrations and for the well wishes. That flower isn't lavender it is a pretty bloom called Sea Mist. Pop in next week and I will be showcasing a new florist that has not long opened. Their flowers and arrangements are beautiful x
How precious is your post, it has imspired me to be even a better grandmother to my grandchildren, although I couldn't love them more. To be remembered like this is so heart warming. Your birthday tea to celebrate your grandmother is just beatiful, thanks for posting it,Melanie.
Sylvia I am sure that you are already a fantastic grandmother to your grandbabies ! I guess the biggest thing that I remember about my Grandmother was the fact that she took the time to sit with us quietly and ask us how our world was. I also loved her stories of her youth (and just as well because I used to hear them 100 times....lol)
Hi Melanie,What a sweet and heart-warming post! I have always felt my grandmother was my angel too. If she were alive today, she would be 106. I sure do miss her! I still have one of her birthday cards too. I think it was the last one she ever sent me. I must dig it out one of these days.Your birthday party is beautiful and the cake with the lacy lady on it is adorable! Thanks for sharing your lovely post and for visiting me today. Have a beautiful weekend.Blessings,Sandi
Melanie,That post brought tears to my eyes. I loved my grandma so much, and still miss her. She lives on in my heart and is with me when I am creating and crafting. Thank you for the nice comment you left about my new granddaughter. I hope she will have as many wonderful memories of me as we have of our grandmothers.Hugs,Julie
What a beautiful, beautiful post. The thought behind it all-the inspiration of your special grandmother-ah, so sweet. We can hope to leave that impression with someone, can't we? I love everything in every picture. Very nostalgic. I have some of those cards and remember receiving them when I was a little girl.This was a very heartwarming post.Thank you, Ruthie from: http://www.ladybstimefortea.blogspot.com
