My mother has a great love of reading that she has passed down to my siblings and I. She started with her favorite picture books to assist us in forming our own appreciation for the quiet act of reading.
My sister recently passed down a couple of books from our childhood that her little girls have been able to enjoy for awhile. The books are slightly tattered but still in very good reading condition with lots of memories.
The Book Titles:
No More Baths by Brock Cole
Oh, Were They Ever Happy! by Peter Spier
Bored-Nothing To Do! by Peter Spier
Burt Dow Deep-Water Man by Robert McCloskey
Thanks, Kay, for passing along a little family heritage!
No wonder I learned to love to read! The imagery in these picture books is wonderful! Makes me want to sit down to paint and read all at the same time. To the love of art and reading!
A good friend invited a group of us out to her parent’s cabin in the woods for a good old fashion sleepover! Long walks, games, good food and a lot of a laughs. All very good for the soul!
Thank you, Caitlin, for creating such a wonderful environment for us all to enjoy!
One of the girls had a Better Homes & Gardens magazine displaying a fall grass wreath. Another one of the ladies and I decided that we would scavenge on our walks in the woods to find the necessities to create our own fall grass wreaths.
The bounty of our scavenging.
The finished product with a little help from the local craft stores floral section and my neighborhood.
A glassybaby that is!
A dear friend is long time supporter and admirer of glassybaby votives. I will refrain from naming how many she has but lets just say she a “mother” load!
For my birthday this year, she made me card carrying member of the glassybaby club with this one.
Thank you, my dear Maggie!
Taking deep breathes in this new birthday year and enjoying the blessings all around.
