About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Happy Birthday in Heaven

We probably never realize the lasting effect we have on those who love us.  My mom was such a sweet, gentle woman and I miss her so very much.  It's been a little over 4 months since she earned her heavenly wings, but the pain of the loss is still so sharp that it often takes my breath away.  The holiday season will be a rough one for me.

Today my sweet Brooke drew this picture.  She told her mom she drew it to show how much she misses her great grandmother.  It is so beautifully done that it made me cry.  There is so much emotion there. 

This coming Saturday would have been a day of celebration because my mom would have been 90 years old.  I know she is at peace and reunited with my dad, the love of her life, but somehow that isn't much consolation on days like today.
