Heart of the ocean

Hola Sweet Cheeks! I've been away.......My Abuelita(grandmama)passed. I went up north to celebrate her life. So, I kissed the babes goodbye and met up with family and friends. I'm just so lucky that my Abuelita was around for 92 years.

I also met up with a great friend from high school. She wanted to learn to wire wrap a ring, so we visited her bead shop. There were so many lovely things, but I picked this stone. My husband called it, "heart of the ocean". LOL! This ring is going to remind me of my Abuelita. I'm so happy that she passed away with SO many loved ones around her.

When I returned home, we went to visit my in-laws to celebrate Father's Day and many birthdays. They had moved a year ago and have now moved back! Everyone really missed this house. This home was built in 1896!!!! I LOVE this house and all the details inside. So, I thought I'd show you a little bit of it=0)

A year ago, we all sat on these steps for one last picture......we thought, LOL!

I love all the plants and hydrangeas in the front yard.

I LOVE shutters.

DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS! Look at all this molding.

I really think this sunroom is so pretty.

Out back all the kids were having a fun time.


I was so sad when I thought I would never see this stove again. Isn't she gorgeous?!

My little cutie pie is happy to be back=0)

It has been a L O N G week. Adios Abuelita.....muchisimos besos. I keep a traveling journel/sketch book. I drew a tree at the church where Abuelita had her service. I drew it on a page that I had already written on........just wanted to see how it would look, LOL! It says, Went to JFK
sitting by "Greg Brady"
too funny.

Wishing you all a wonderful week. I'm going to try and put this little house back in order. No Mama for several days=super duper messy, LOL.
