A Sweet Gift

My sister, Leta, surprised me with a special gift while we were at Grimmwood.

Aren't these so cute? And she did a great job stitching them.

I was not sure how I would use them but here is my decision.

For now they are on the beds in the guest room. I think they are adorable. Thanks so much Leta!!

A few asked questions about my reunion post so I will answer here. Yes Marvin went with me. He played photographer for me. He hung out with my friend, Debbie's boyfriend. It was the first time they had met but they found lots to talk about.  Gina wanted to know what I won as a prize for coming the longest distance to the reunion. I got a Georgia Map, a Georgia Tourist Guide and a $20 Visa gift card!   Marvin's class is planning their 50th for next year and he is on the planning committee. I find I now know a lot of his classmates. However there were about 600 people in his graduating class.  I had to come home and look through my 1973 Arrowhead to remember some of the people in attendance.  I thought I knew almost everyone in my class but as I paged through the senior class I realized I did not know as much as I thought I knew.lol I wonder where they are these days.  I do think I enjoyed this reunion more than some of the others I had attended. As Marvin puts it, the ground levels out in 50 years between the cool kids and the others. Now we are all just old people.:)

The gifts you received are so pretty and I love the way you have them shown. Glad you enjoyed your reunion and got to see friends and even see old classmates and now maybe they are friends too!

What fun farm pieces Leta created for you! They look super at the end of the beds.

Leta really outdid herself. Those are great and look wonderful on the beds. I really love the twin beds too.
I think they would make nice pillows too for decoration.
Marvin is probably right...enough time gets all the mean and the stupid stuff out of us. We are just glad to be still feeling good:)

What a thoughtful and beautiful gift from Leta! And I love how you chose to use them!

LOL...I love Marvin's idea about class reunions! Do you know that I've not gone to a single one of mine!

What lovely gifts your sister Leta made for you. I love how you have them displayed. I like the pillow idea Carol mentioned too or how about some pillow pinafores? RJ

How cute those pieces from Leta look at the foot of the guest room beds! An ingenious way to display them!! It was fun hearing more about the reunion! Marvin is a keeper, but you know that!
