Today has been kind of mom's birthday. She would have ben 92 & she passed away a year ago Tuesday. She was a very special of six children....the only one to go to college. She went to a 3 year teacher's her teaching degree...but never taught school. She ended up working in a bank and became one of the top officers in that bank during her career of 30 + years.
She & my dad were married 48 years when he passed away in 1988. Then she lived another 20 years, volunteering at our local hospital and spending time with her children, grandchildren & great grand children.
There are so many good things I could say about my mom, but I guess the most memorable is that she was always there for us & did anything she could for my sister & I, so we were there for her when she became ill and needed us. She passed away at home...just like she wanted. My niece & I took care of her those last few weeks and we wouldn't have had it any other way.
She was a very special lady...dressed just so, with her hair done & jewelry that she picked out each day....never left the house without her earrings on. She was the matriarch of our family, with 2 daughters....5 grandchildren....12 great grandchildren.
She & my dad are missed everyday, but we know they are in a better place....angels watching over all of us.

I'm Baaaack!

Surprise....I'm finally back...seems like forever since I've been in here!
We moved to Palm Bay, the house settled, then it was time to come north for the summer. We are in PA for a while, but will be traveling back & forth to FL this summer, too. Lots to do to the house here in Pa, too.
I have been doing cross stitching & hand sewing, such as felt items....candle mats & table runners....but haven't been listing in Ebay or Etsy yet. I'm going to do a big craft show with my sister on June 19th & 20th, so I hope to sell alot there.
I hope to get on here more you some pictures....& start selling again.
