The Little Things

Write it on your heart that everyday is the best day in the year.

Sophia at ranch (2)

This is a picture of my granddaughter Sophia and her other grandmother walking on her great grandparents ranch here in California. I just love this picture. So simple and beautiful and full of love. My little Sophia took a fall while playing outside today. Please keep her in your prayers. She has a bruised up face. She is such a beautiful and dainty little thing.

I hope all of you that have been dumped on by all of that four letter word stuff, are keeping safe and warm. I heard that some areas are really suffering. Hopefully spring will be here soon. And yes, this is how it looks here in Northern California. We have been having a really mild winter. (sorry, don’t be jealous)The pictures are from last weekend.




The winner of my Facebook giveaway was Scott Whenrey. He has mentioned that he will be bringing it to the nursing home he works at to help cheer people. How sweet is that. We are glad to be part of that. Congrats to Scott!

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.

More Love~



How sweet! I received this wonderful package today, on Valentines Day! Jean from Prim Crafts had a giveaway for the first 12 to comment on her blog. I wasn’t one of them, but I left my comment still, because her creations are amazing. Well being the generous person she is, she sent me one anyway.



Thank you Jean!! You are so sweet. I just love this little angel. Isn’t he adorable??!!


Just a little more “LOVE” before it is packed away.


more Valentines here and more Valentines swap here



1 Corinthians 13: 13  And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

Humble Heart Swap Goodies~


Oh I was so excited when the mail man came today!!!  He brought me this large box full of all kinds of wonderful goodies!!! 


I joined the Humble Heart  swap that  Amy from Bumble Bee Lane hosted. My partner was Robin from The Primitive Hutch. I was really concerned at first because Robin and I make some of the same kinds of things. But Robin sews and makes the most amazing stitched creations as well.I sew to get by, but I never use a pattern. I guess the same as my other I did manage to stitch her a little heart.

She sent me so many amazing things. Look at all of the wonderful goodies that were in that box.


She sent this adorable “Liberty” doll. It has a Nice little apron with Liberty on it, a red starred dress and cutest little grandmother face. There were also some strawberries, and a wonderful pin keep pillow tuck. I have wanted one of those for the longest time. It is so nice! It may be my favorite, although I don’t think I can choose! Everything was so  wonderful!!!


And then there’s more~

The box was so full of pretty wrapped packages with valentine tissue and beautiful ribbons.

She included this Valentine stitchery~ so nice! It has a   little skeleton  key and the date 1836. She does amazing work!!

Also in the box was this Primitive Book Light Holder and grubby candle(I have wanted one of those for the longest time, it is like she has known me for a long time), a sweet card….GEDC0443


and speaking of sweets~ yummy caramel chocolates(they didn’t last long, they are so good) ! Also included~ Valentine tissues, basket and vines note pad, and the best candle ever!!!!GEDC0441

Are you familiar with McCall's Candles??? They have one of the best scented candles ever!!! It is called Country Store. It comes in the cutest jar, just like a canning jar.They also sell it at Christmas with a different label. At Christmas it is labeled Christmas Jingle.GEDC0441

I love it! Can you smell it??? mmmmmm

And there is even more~

an awesome silver heart, I believe it is mercury glass, so beautiful. I think I know just where I will put that.And last but not least two plaid napkins one in blue and one in red.



Such a lot of love packed into that box. The time and effort she put into picking out just the right things was so thoughtful! Thank you so much Robin for all of the wonderful creations. Everything was perfect! I am so blessed to have gotten to know you better ! GEDC0439

Now I need to get busy and find homes for all of those wonderful goodies. I will have more pics later of where I put them all.

Now we just went through the holiday season with all of the sweets, meals, and goodies etc. We also just  had a gathering yesterday to watch the super bowl and enjoy so many wonderfully delicious homemade treats. So I really don’t “need” any more!!! But look what we found at the store today~
