Special Blessings

Thought some of you might be interested in one of my latest (and best) projects:   my grandson, Brayden Michael Gill!!!  My sweet daughter, Brittany, gave birth to the most perfect, sweetest, cutest baby in the world in March!! (can you tell I'm a proud g-ma!)  Brayden is the joy of my life, such a blessing and so much fun.  He's a really sweet baby and he actually giggled out-loud the other day!

He does take a lot of our time right now, but it's all good.  If I need to get something done and I'm the 'official' babysitter, I just put him in a papoose and 'get on with it'!

I thank God for my little 'pickle' every minute of everyday and I'm enjoying watching him grow!

                                                  My sweet Brittany and soon to be Brayden!

                                         Here he is--all 8 lbs 5 oz of him!!  He was a big boy!

Proud Uncle Jonathan is all grins

Brayden in his papoose.  We went garage selling and he wasn't impressed!

3-month old Brayden watching cartoons with his mom--yes, he's a big boy!

"Did you say dessert?!"  Yes, he likes his food!!

                            "I think I ate too much--I'm so tired now!"

Sweet dreams my sweet baby boy--God loves you and so does your grandma!!!

So this is what's been keeping us sooooo busy these last few months--but he is well worth the effort and each day brings more and more joy just knowing my little Brayden!

God Bless all and any who read this,

What a great weekend I just had!!  Not only was it the Winnie Trade Days Show but also Mother's Day on Sunday.   The trade show started out gloomy, with rain and thunderstorms on Friday and Sat. morning.  It finally cleared up around 9am Saturday morning and the people started coming out from their 'burrows' and boy did they shop!!  There was a steady flow of customers all afternoon on Saturday--and Sunday wasn't so bad either.  Families were out, taking mom out for a special treat on her special day.  And they were buying!   And even though I had to work on mother's day, all my kids called and sent me their love and appreciation--what a great group of kids I have!!  Thanks guys for making my day special!  

The shop is coming along very nicely, still needs a little 'tweeking' but I'm liking it more and more.  I had quite a few compliments on it this weekend and that of course combined with good sales really made my day!  Here are a few pictures of the shop as it is right now---it's always subject to change!!  Let me know what you think

                                        This is one side of my 'front porch'

                                                     The other side of my front porch

                                                   Aren't the 7-dwarfs cute!

These are just a few shots of my shop.  As you can see, it takes lots of treasures to fill this place up!!  It's a whopping 32ft by 20ft of space to fill.  I love it all so much and I had so many nice customers come in and purchase or just visit with me.  It is my hope and prayer that I will be able to make this shop a place that people will want to visit every show, a place of great fun and wonderful items for sale.  But of course, most importantly, I want it to be a place so filled with God's holiness that everyone who enter will say,  "that was so enjoyable"!  Let me know what you think of my latest and greatest adventure!!
