Happy Valentines Day!
A true love story
Today's blog will be linked to several party's because I am busy helping plan a big 60th surprise birthday party for our sis Kathy.
Kathy was born in1951 in a small country town. She was born early and without much medical help she wasn't supposed to make it.
The doctors suggested she be placed in a home for the mentally handicapped. My parent's love saw beyond the problems. K didn't walk until about 4 and didn't talk till she was 7. Her favorite story is to say
"I couldn't talk till I was seven but now you can't get me to stop!"
If you need a genuine hug
or someone to pray for you K is the one to go to.
Her love is without limits.
These are two of the things I have been working on. A photo album for her memories of the party and an apron to wear during a planned money dance. We thought she would love this since she always does at weddings. There is a pocket on the front, I think I did a pretty good job of matching the fabric if I do say so myself!
Daddy passed away 20 years ago and my mom who is 84 still takes care of K. How fun it will be to surprise her next week! I'm sure Ann and I will be sharing lots of pictures.
For todays post, I am sharing a vintage table runner that was my grandmothers. Oh how wonderful these pink hyacinth smell!
I love the needle work on this piece.
This is my dining room table.
I really enjoyed making this simple arrangement for the center.
The crystal vase was bought in Germany 35 years ago.
I found these cute fairy candle holders at the Goodwill one is a girl and the other a boy.
Perfect for a special day of love.
I realize this is much simpler than many of the tables you will see but hope you enjoyed your vista. Blessings, Debbie
