Back to School

It's that time of year again.  Kids are heading back to school and that includes my four grandchildren. I always liked shopping for new backpacks and all the school supplies they would need to start off the new year.  Cookies are always a good supply.

Have the best school year ever Jacob, Jordan, Gabriel and Tali.

I love you to pieces.

Birthday Button Flowers

Coming up is a special mom's 83rd birthday. I wanted to make her some pretty cookies. When I was trying to figure out what to do and searching the internet for ideas, I came across the cutest little button fondant mold and Voila! 

You see, when I was little my mother had a tin of all the odd buttons underneath the kitchen sink.  I can remember sitting on the floor and sorting and sorting for hours forgetting all about them until recently.  Boy do I wish I still had that tin. You never know how important something will be until it's gone or how many great memories something like a little box of buttons can make.

Happy Birthday Mom
I love you.

Valentine's Day Rememberence

Years ago when I first started knitting I made my husband a pair of socks.  Even though they were not the most perfect pair, he loved them.  Recently I found them in his sock drawer and they brought back all kinds of memories.
I knit quite a bit for about six years, winning all sorts of ribbons and awards, but two years ago I just stopped.  Everything got packed away and forgotten. 
One evening while I was here alone I thought I would try and start a project hoping it would get me back in the mood to knit.  Well, it worked!  So far in the past few weeks I've knit a fox doll and hat, and started on another doll.  But, my favorite knit has been these mittens.  Elephants never forget.  These will make me remember Geoffrey every time I wear them.
 I will never forget you Geoffrey.

What does the fox say?? "I'm going to Tali's!"

I think she even contemplated
giving her brother Gabriel the doll so she could have all the cookies.
