Sleepy Sunday & Some Sweets...

Happy Grandparents' Day to all of you grandparents out there! What would we do without you? It's so wonderful to know that there are at least four other people in the world who love our children as much as we do and want them to be happy, healthy and whole. My mother-in-law has said that she was pleasantly, wonderfully surprised to find that she loves her grandchildren as much, as fiercely and as heartily as she does her children; she didn't know it would feel like that to be a grandmother. Isn't that beautiful? I think so. By the way, that's me in the "spoiled" pants! And my grandpa really DID (does??) spoil me! :)

I want to give you a little sneak peek at something I finished up last night for the Ava Grace Silent Auction, which will begin one week from today, September 16th, and run till Saturday, September 22nd. If you haven't heard about this auction, read about it here. Sweet little Ava Grace will benefit from 100% of the proceeds of this auction. My contribution is something I didn't plan...it just sort of happened. I planned to make something totally different, in fact, but it just didn't feel "right" as I was working on it. This piece, on the other hand, is RIGHT. Don't know how to explain what I mean when I say that. :) Sounds a little "hocus-pocus-heebie-jeebie," I know, but that's just how it is with us artistic folks sometimes! Can I get an "Amen, Sister!" ? So here's a little "teaser" for you!
Oh and do you remember the "My Own Sweet Doll" fabric keepsake book I made awhile ago? Well my dear friend, Jennifer, bought it and she posted some pics of how it looks in HER little doll's room (Vivian)! Talk about "Eye Candy"...this little buodoir is certainly fit for a Princess!


Hope you are having a lazy Sunday evening. We're watching this little cutie in The Little Princess. Be sure and come back tomorrow for Monday Yummies!

I completely understand about the "it has to feel right" thing. Amen sister. LOL

Love what you came up with! (At least what I can see of it) So sweet.

The keepsake book looks perfect in that girly pink room.
