:: With Love ::

I was reminded today (while doing three (more) loads of laundry) that I've been meaning to blog about a couple things around here for way too long.
:: I've only had this for a couple weeks so it's not so bad......while we were on the mainland a few weeks ago my mom, MIL and SIL and I went on a day shopping trip to the states where my mom spoiled Denay (and me) with this adorable rug. I've set it up downstairs as a playmat for her toys for now, but we are going to move Denay into our empty bedroom (with the hardwood) and use the rug as a jumping off point for the design. Think LOTS of color :) ::
:: This little beauty was a baby gift from Trevor's Auntie Marilyn. It is patched with a little note on the underside from Marilyn and I just know Denay will cherish it for a long long time. ::
:: We've had (and enjoyed) this quilt for two and a half years now. It was a wedding gift from......yep, Auntie Marilyn. It also has a handwritten patch on the underside and has made a home on the back of our sofa. To say the least it has been warm on a cold night and again, I think it will be around for a long, long time. ::
Hope ya'll had a fabby weekend and a great start to the week!
