y Grandma was one of the cutest babies. She made the best apple pie, and a great cup of coffee.

She had a bluebird named Michael and we used to watch Lawrence Welk and listen to the Lennon Sisters on television.

Karen, your grandmother was precious. (What a beautiful baby face!) Lawrence Welk and the Lennon Sisters were a big part of my childhood too. My grandmother lived with us, and we probably didn't miss a single L.W. episode. Love what you did with the photos and mosaics. And I REALLY love the package of fall goodies I received in the mail today. You are so sweet. My order was not big enough for you to include extras, and what wonderful extras you included! I especially love that I have a pumpkin drawing on a card with a note from you inside. When you become famous, my card with a personal note will be very valuable! Thank you so much for being such a kind and generous person. I'm so glad to have found you in this big Blogging world! laurie

Karen you have truly touched my heart today. Your post reminded me so much of the times I used to spend with my grandmother. Grandmother's are just the best aren't they? Thank you for this beautiful post. I would love for you to partidipate in my fashion show. I hope you will consider sharing your 'Little Black Dress'

Beverly said...

Karen, I can tell your grandmother was my kind of lady. She had a very cool granddaughter, too.

mizmollye said...

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Now she was the cutest little thing I've ever seen. Looks just like the cuties you get on the dvd's doesn't she? I just love visiting your blog and Thanks for following along on mine! I used to think old Lawrence was the bomb! I'm pretty old myself you know and I think that's where I got my real love of dancing. Hugs, Mollye

Hello Karen, I have been out of town and am trying to catch up with my blogging friends. Your post is adorable. You are right, your grandmother was such a beautiful baby. I love your mosaic and the sweet additions you made to have a wonderful memory come into your thoughts.

Have a wonderful day.

Hugs xoxo, Jeanne

Karen~ YOU are a very cool lady. Your Grandma would be proud! My Serendipity prints(s) arrived today and I am thrilled beyond words. When I made the purchase, it was intended to be a gift for a good friend, but (in my mind) I reserved the right to keep it for myself if it was as lovely as it appeared to be. Now I can give it as the gift, as planned, AND I get to keep one for myself....PLUS I now have one of your "Grandma cards"...what a blessed day!

Hugs!
