Sweet Memories

Sorry I haven't talked to you in awhile..... I have been reading all your wonderful postings. I have been socializing with my family-Mom and Sis, friends - G. and L. Plus I have been finishing baby projects.. My son's fiance invited me to view her wedding dress...she looks so beautiful..lovely of her to invite me...

Plus, I have been working on an old wicker bassinet, that was originally bought second-hand for my birth...So I guess we can say it is old..LOL..My siblings, my 2 children and my 3 nieces have slept in it.. As you know my daughter is expecting a girl in May...So my Mom brought out the crib from her storage. I washed, lightly sanded and painted the crib. At the same time, we found a skirt that my Aunt H. made for me. The skirt is a little long as it was sewn before they bought the bed. The material is in excellent condition and hasn't yellowed.. What a lovely find..My Aunt cried when she talked about making the skirt..Sweet Memories...My DD is excitied to use it for her little girl...

Take care friends...Keep visiting..

How wonderful that your mom saved the bassinet and now you can spiff it up and pass it to your daughter for her baby. Lovely! Wishing you many blessings. Have a great weekend! Tammy

What a pretty bassinet that is! I am actually scrapping about Jinte's bassinet at this point. We borrowed it from friends and DH hated it and thought it was the ugliest thing ever. But it was so cute. You will see it when I post the LO. When is your daughter due?????

Have a good weekend!
