Goodness

My sister, Emily, found a jar of her husband's grandmother's buttons. She sifted through them and pulled out all the ones she thought I'd like. She was right! I like love them all! There are some very cool ones in there. And I think grandmother's buttons are always the best. Even when it's not your own grandmother.


Yesterday my friend, Kim, stopped by with a gallon-sized ice cream bucket full of freshly picked strawberries. YUM! The smell is unbelievable.

And, lest I forget, I was a Free Fabric Friday winner! Lucky, lucky, me!

Gee. I could start getting used to Joe being gone ...

(just kidding, dear)

Did I ever tell you I don't like fruit unless it's covered in chocolate???

Score!
Do I see some stawberry shortcake coming on? Or stawberry pie? (My favorite summer pie.)
I found our first stawberry that hadn't already been eaten by the birds/bugs/whatever last night. I gave it to Aidin who promplty bragged to her brother that she got a stawberry. I should have just eaten it myself.

I think you are right...Grandmother's buttons are the best. I got my Grandmother's buttons last christmas time. They are a precious thing for me to have. Hope things are going well with Joe gone.
