A Blog Full of Friends

You like me! you really like me! Ha they gave Sally Fields a hard time about that speech but everyone thinks that when something nice happens to them. I have 99 followers, I really can not believe it. I so appreciate each of you  and Thank You!
I finally got to see the grand baby today. By the time I did get back to my side of the mountain it was snowing and getting slick. I  had to wait for several cars to try and make a big hill which they couldn't. Thank heavens for four wheel drive no problem for me to make it. I haven't seen her since she was 2 days old and she is 3 weeks old today. She is getting so big already. Lots and lots of holding and hugging so wonderful being a gramme. I finally got her to sleep, my job was done time to go home.

 When I started this blog I thought 3 people might see it and it would be just a bit of fun for me. I am completely amazed at this community. I have made such wonderful friends and have had the chance to meet people who I would not have other wise met. After my grand daughter arrived I got a package in the mail.  My heart was so full that a blogging friend would send my grand daughter a gift. lauren has been a follower from the early beginning and for some reason we clicked. I would send her emails with way more information than she would ever want ha. and I would think after I sent them "This woman is going to delete me and think I am the biggest nut ever"   If you haven't visited her blog you get over there, OK right after you read mine. ha How wonderful and girly are these sweet little things! Thank you Lauren glad you didn't delete me.

 I am adding to my give away. The sign is sweet and says it all. The metal basket has little feet so you can fold it flat and use it as a trivet or bring the sides up and use it as a basket.
Here is a recap of what we have for the giveaway so far. If you are new just go back 2  posts to read more. I am celebrating my blog's first year . Leave me a comment to enter the drawing on Jan 27th
 I have a lot of wine corks and have a few ideas. One I wanted to show you, my paper whites in this large vase, I used the corks as a potting medium.  I have had a chance to hook and I amdown to the border, pictures soon I hope.  Leave me a comment to enter and have a great day.

The baby is just darling!!! Glad you had a wonderful time dispite the weather! The clothes from Lauren are just wonderful...I think you have made a great friend!!

As a new blogger myself, I could totally appreciate your blogging excitement! I couldn't believe that people responded the first day I launched. It's a wonderful community. Sometimes the world seems so messed up (especially after watching the news) :) but then I log into this world and I am reassured that there are lovely people abounding. Your grandbaby is beautiful. What a blessing.

Did you bottle up that wonderful baby smell? Could there be anything in this whole world that smells as sweet as a baby. She is lovely. Enjoy spoiling her Gramme!!!!

Gayle said...

I totally agree with you about what a sweetie Lauren is! She always kindly leaves comments when I write a new post - and is interested in the projects I'm working on.

My first grandbaby just turned 4 months old and I am LOVIN' being a grandma!

Love that little grandbaby of yours, we have a little grand daughter on the way, she is arriving on Feb. 11th and her big brother turns 2 on Feb. 16th, so they will be a busy house for a few years.

Now I'm your 101st follower although I've been a 'lurker' for awhile. Learned that term from the movie Julie/Julia. I enjoy your site; found it via Fish Eye Rugs blog. Thank you for sharing your life. your grandbaby is adorable. I'm still getting up the courage to start a blog. One of these days I will but I don't know how disciplined I would be.

Orange Sink said...

Glad all is well with the cutest ever Grand baby and you got to connect dispite the weather! Will be soooooo glad when this winter is over! Lauren is the sweetest and is a wonderful friend to have! I see your followers are increasing by the minute! Be careful how much wonderful stuff you put in that give-away! You'll have to float a loan for the postage! LOL!

Susanne said...

The corks are a great idea.

I have a friend who will be a grandmother soon and the other day a car load of us were trying to decide what we wanted to be called. I don't think we came up with 'gramme', that's nice.

Oh my gosh she's darling. I love that age when they make all the cute little sounds and just are so yummy. As for that cute Potterybarn pillow. $39. Will have to watch clearance for that to come down. Isn't it so cute though. I love red and white anything.
