~WHAT AM I THINKING?~
(My Precious Miss K)
I suppose one of the great things about having a Nana with a huge craft/sewing/painting studio is that it comes with a seemingly endless supply of STUFF in which one can create. So many tempting treasures are just sitting around that I'm sure look very appealing to a little girl of 8...
~SITTING PRETTY FOR NANA~
My Miss K has her own area where she can draw, color, paint and glue. She knows she has to ask permission to use some things (especially if they are of a certain color) and she's gotten really good at coming to me first before she raids my stash. So, when she asked me recently if she could use some 'new ribbon' (clarifying of course that it was NOT PINK) I sad yes! I have a stack of vintage trims and ribbons and an entire drawer full of stuff that is up for grabs!
~FROM THE HEART~
Well...somehow a roll of my favorite vintage pale blue rayon ribbon (1940's era) was placed in the drawer that held only the newer trims. So...guess which one my sweet girl chose?
Yep...the expensive old stuff!
A short while later I was presented with this pretty little heart dressed to the nines in soft blue.
Want to know where it's going?
~VINTAGE RIBBON ACCENTS~
I'll keep it out until she makes me a new one (ever mindful that one day those little gifts from the heart will end). When I have a new piece of her artwork I'll tuck this one away for safe keeping. Eventually I'll place it next to the one given to me by her daddy. His was a sweet 'heart' valentine made entirely out of my favorite (and costly) Lancome lipstick. He was 8.
Being a Nana makes my own heart sing!
Happy Hump Day!
Love to you...
