Those birdcages were to die for....and I love that pic of your gran!!!!!! she looks so sweet :)

Sally Lynn MacDonald

Oh wow. The letters and illustrations must be precious!!! It makes me yearn to head up to Wisconsin and go through the 'bins' of photos at my parents house again. Laptop and scanner in the carryon!! Well perhaps later in the year. I loved doing it last time - but concentrated on photos.

Love the paint cans. It brings the 'handmade in the USA' right to the forefront.

Breanne Crawford

thanks for sharing those pics for us... absolutely lovely! love their idea od round robins! I used to do that with my cross stitching friends as well... send out a blank piece of fabric and get it back full of attitude sewn into it. LOL!


Had to comment on this "visit to a little town". I was raised in Lynd, and knew the Great Grand Gram. Her name was Mabel, she had apple trees we raided when we were old enough to discover them. I later delivered the Minneapolis Star and Tribune every night to her door. A classy lady who added to my story of growing up in a small midwest town.
