a new day...

happy sunday friends!

first off let me extend oodles of THANKS to all of you that have sent me such sweet notes and comments about my granna and for all of you that have been keeping my family in your thoughts and prayers! i couldn't ask for better pals...thank you. my granna's funeral was the most lovely service i have ever attended. truly! my granna was so beautiful on the outside, with her elegant and timeless style, but even more so on the inside. she was super involved in her community and church and was such a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend. she always had a smile on her face and i can't remember a single time that i ever saw her lose her temper or say a cross word. she was the peacemaker of the family... always remembering the bright side of things. she adored to travel all over with my grandaddy. she had a love and appreciation for antiques and vintage treats and had such a knack for decorating. AND she was the most incredible baker and always had cookies ready for you upon entering her kitchen. i'm so happy that my own boys were able to know her and especially happy that we were able to spend time with her just a few short days before her passing. we will miss you granna, but know that we will see you one day again and that we have a beautiful angel looking after us!

my gorgeous granna as a young gal...

my sister ali, granna and me in the late 70's...

so today is a new day and i'm hopping back on the reality train! i will be posting more here on my blog...catching up with all of you that have left me comments...and FINALLY getting some new art and vintage treats listed in the etsy shops. things have just snowballed after our move and i just haven't been myself. and that's okay! i'll get there:) sadly i have missed the boat on my favorite holiday. halloween is just around the corner! i didn't even decorate the house!!!!! that is crazy for me. sheer craziness. but oh well. moving on to a bigger and better christmas:)

lots of xoxox to you all! and i mean ALL!

Lovely photos! Your grammie sounds like an amazing woman! The photo of her as a young woman is perfectly classic. I thought it was a photo of you. Love and prayers in your grief and in your healing.
