Happy March 1st....
Spring has sprung here in Texas...
as I'm typing this there is a sparrow sitting on the fence...
looks like she has found some stuffing of some sort...
must be nest building...

trees are starting to bloom....
visions of  picnics...long walks...dirt under the nails...
are dancing in my head...

My Mom has been busy at the sewing machine...
aren't these little dresses adorable..
don't they just scream SPRING...

she made this little bag this morning for little britches...
a book bag to take to the library...
she used my FIL's old shirt pocket with his monogram...
the denim was from my Nana's collection...
she lined it with my FIL's shirt...
so now he has something from his great grandmother...
his great grandfather...and his great great grandmother...
all in one adorable little bag...
she has made me several table clothes...and napkins...
with cute little bags to store them in...

this bag has a table cloth...and cocktail napkins...
I feel a luau coming on...

this bag has napkins...
but she also made me a table cloth...and a table runner...
I think I might just have to do a little more entertaining...
so I can show off all my cool stuff...


she made me these napkins to match a table cloth...
well it is actually a little quilt I found at a thrift store...
used them on Valentines day....
I'm really in the festive mood right now...
This month I will have 2 parties...
for my big 50...
one for adults...on St. Paddy's day...
a hamburger cook out the next day for family...
a few close friends...
I'm also planning another family game night...
I was chosen friend of the day today on Facebook...
by our local news channel...so cool...
I missed seeing them broadcast it...
but saw it on Facebook...
a celebrity and didn't even know it (LOL)
Happy 1st day of March...
Today I'm joining

yesterday there was a squirrel running down the fence...
the dogs were chasing along...
little britches was so excited...
when the squirrel jumped off the other side...
little britches looked up at me and said...
Again Oma....
he wanted me to rewind and make it happen again...
a true Tech generation...

Wow! The homemade things are great! I love the overall dresses!

Sometimes I think this generation that our grandchildren belong to will think they can just rewind life! :) But they're the greatest!
