BUTTONS BONDING & COFFEE


BUTTONS

The lovely Laurie from Charming Designs sent me a fabulous bag of buttons.
Look at the sweet envelope she mailed them in.
A Random Act of Kindness
Thank you Laurie.
BONDING COUSINS PLAYING ON GRANDMA’S BED

This looks like Lachlan and Chloe may be teaching Riley all about playing on Grandmas bed.




Looks like lots of laughter is going on


Such fun being a Grandma



COFFEE

Today I met up with Gail
from Gail and Tony McCormack Original Paintings and Furniture for coffee.
Lots of chatter and coffee.

Annie said...

Love your song at the moment and sorry to hear about Meg.

KarenHarveyCox said...

Alison,
Oh those children are the best! How gorgeous are they? I enjoyed the music one of my favorite songs. Looking at a bag of buttons leads to lots of inspiration for creations. Yesterday I attended a class, where the instructor used a button to string ribbon through and used it to hang our craft. The button made it adjustable, so you could hang the craft properly. Karen

cindy said...

Ohhhh, isn't being a grandmother just about the most wonderful blessing, ever?!! Is surely is for me, too.
You are right in that Deena is a strong person. She's strong because of her relationship with Jesus and she couldn't do it without HIM. I stand in awe of her strength and courage every day.
Your buttons are so nice....
