Spring break, Sewing and Surprises...

I've been out of town and we will be in and out of town the next couple of weeks...but wanted to share a little and join in with Ms. Jenny's  Alphabe-thursday's "S" week.  (A big thank you to all those that stopped by and commented on my last post, I truly will get by to visit all of you).

1st...our Son's Spring Break... It was fun to hang out with Heartbreaker and Sweetie...

My hubby and I went with them to our town's celebration and walked the 3mile path in the park.


 ...by one of the bridges, we watched two guys in their boat checking their "alligator traps"they set up.
One of my friends and I have seen an alligator sunning along those paths.

In Savannah's Market place, the day before St. Patrick's day...We stopped to eat some yummy pizza.  It was already crowded with those in the St. Patrick day spirit.


 The photo in the middle, is of my hubby and Heartbreaker replacing the headlights to his car.


Heading off to Savannah's St. Patrick's day parade. Heartbreaker is toasting with some healthy vegetable juice - Mean green! lol

 2nd...some sewing for our little grandbaby Bunny...

I Sewed and Sent them for Bunny's room...

The pillow with the multiple pie shaped fabrics was not stuffed yet. The other pillow that shows the solid pink Lilly Pulitzer matelasse' back was stuffed...this one is more like a drum shaped pillow. Both are on our bed, next to the valance and the different patterned fabric pennants.


This is the pie shaped pillow with the stuffing and the button sewn on. You can see that I sewed a little handle on the side of this one and the other one, so that when Caroline is big enough, she can carry it around to sit on...or just to carry around. :o)

This is three separate photos of the valance and the pennants, so you can see how it looks. The ends of the pennant ties have huge buttons sewn on each ric-rac.

Here is Bunny's nursery, with the valance hung. Girly~Twirly (aka Bunny's mommy) hung the pennants to the side of the crib.  (This post shows some of her nursery in progress...*Pretty Paintings*...)
I also sewed a "pouf" or little ottoman for Caroline, when she is older. When we are there, I'll stuff and finish sewing the decorative stitches on it.

If you haven't seen our little grandbaby ~ "Bunny", please take a peek at some photos of her, over at this post * Q~tie Pie * .

3rd...some surpises... 

...a Sweet gift sent by Sweet Ms. Jenny! (I love, love, love this sweet pillow and it will be in our extra bedroom~ that will be our "grandbabies" room for when any grandbabies come to visit ;o)

 Oh yes! This little sweet sign from our dear friends will be sure to find a special spot in our grandbabies room too. :o)

We have some other Surprises, but I will post about those later...

Here is another art order completed and sent to another sweet baby's nursery.

& her momma sent this photo of it matted and framed. Thank you Katie!


Thank you again for always taking the time to stop by and comment! I will catch up on my visits, but it may be a little bit...once we are not in and out of Georgia.

Lovely photos of time spent with your son and his sweetheart. The sewing for your granddaughter is fabulous!

SURPRISE! Ya, I've been in and out of the blog loop lately myself, but how fun to catch up. Now I need to go see that sweet new grandbaby you have! Love all the pics this week too:) Later...

I didn't know about Bunny being born. Congratulations! Yes, the technology today will make it so easy to watch her change. Our kids were born in Italy and the hospital didn't have a photographer to take pictures and I didn't even get home with one of them until he was ten days old. (The base plane was down for parts.) The hospital was in Naples and we lived in Sicily. We never had newborn pictures and then we had to take pictures and send them off to be developed, so our families in the states didn't even see them for a while. Times sure have changed. Love the nursery and the pillows and pendants you made! By the way, I need new headlights. Can they come over?

Your family gathering looks like fun.
The baby's room is sweet, I can see myself with feet up reading a book in the comfy chair.
The pillow sentiment is so true; having grandchildren is such a pleasure.

Lot's of great pictures. And the nursery? Just beautiful. I wish I knew how to sew, it is such a great skill, especially when you're a grandma : )
Take care,
Dana
