Baby! Vintage Necklace! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

Hope you all had a lovely Easter!

Spring is here, but arriving a bit more slowly to my house
than to the rest of San Diego.
I admit...I am not an earth mother.
I am much better at buying garden tchotchkes than gardening.
Or making flowers out of paper and fabric than coaxing from the earth.

Wait a minute!

How did that cute little baby picture get in there?!
Clearly my 6 week old grandson has figured out how to hack into my blog
and feels that there are not enough pictures of him!
Well there he is, little aviator and future world explorer.
I guess I will have to change my password :)

My dear friend Terri, who also has a new baby grandson,
sent me the most wonderful surprise!
My heart skipped a beat when I opened her package
 to find these lovelies from her:

 She created this beautiful necklace, taking a picture of Colton from a previous blog post
and put it inside of a vintage watchface:

And this beautiful card,
Terri does dimensional like no one else:
I am so touched by her generosity of spirit.
How wonderfully thoughtful and beautifully executed.
I will wear this necklace often and proudly, Terri, thank you sooo much!

It seems to be baby season, so perhaps

What a beautiful grandson you have Lorraine! I know you must be enjoying every minute with him. Much love to you and your family. xo

Your grandson looks adorable in that picture, Lorraine! Love the necklace. It is gorgeous on its own, but the picture makes it even more special.

Oh, what an adorable little blog hacker! I opened this post and it just made me smile, smile, smile! And your gift from Terri is exquisite.

Thanks so much for the shares. I have to get on the stick with baby cards, too -- you're right. I noticed this week on my FB feed that there were 17 FB birthdays this week -- and last week was almost as big! I suspect that newbies will be popping from happy mums soon!

What a happy time Lorraine. Your grandson is gorgeous and what a nice display of him in the gorgeous necklace.

OMG Lorraine, That is the cutest photo of your grandson, he is just beautiful! I bet you are enjoying him so much. You are so welcome for the necklace, I knew I just had to make one for you, you are always so sweet to me. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Terri
