A day with my nanna...

A few days ago my Nanna & her beau & his daughter came over for a visit. I always love when they come up, its like a special treat. We sat around and talked and then went to James parents restaurant to eat lunch. I played the jukebox for Jame's daddy and we all had a beer (except James, he doesnt drink). James and I both ate grilled cheese with french fries and homeade gravy!!! Yum!! I told Jame's mom she could burn it a little b/c my mom always burnt them. She did one side burned and one side not, and later told me it was from both of my mommas!! I thought that was the sweetest thing ever. And I wore my super cute shirt gifted to me from Leah of Sookie Says, along with my necklace from Katelyn of Scrufmeisterk. I think they look precious together. And I paired two of my glass flower rings from my Violet Bella shop together and I love how they look that way.

I think my nanna is soooo beautiful.  She is one of my very best friends, and biggest joys in this world.  She has taken over the momma role since my mom has been gone.  She is a very good listener, says the funniest things, is so gentle and loving, an excellent gardener, pretty much the best grandmother I ever could have been blessed with.  And her ears turn red when she is mad or embarrassed so she cant hide it! 

Just to clarify on my sneak peek post of my new jewelry studio space.  There are better pictures coming later, it was suppose to be just tid bits... I didnt want to post pics that you could really see everything in until I get the real photos done.  And Im pretty much done with the room as of this morning.  It looks amazing.  When I get time I will photograph everything and post on the blog.



  1. Your nanna is gorgeous! I love her demeanor...even from that photo :) perfect :)

    My dad's mom is a bit more hip to the now, while my mom's mom is a bit more prim & proper. I think I get my daintiness from her & my sassy-ness from the other!

    Sure looks like you had a wonderful time! Nannas are the best :)

  2. Awww your nanna sounds like such a sweetheart :) It sounds to me you had a wonderful day out
