 ANOTHER G'GIRL BIRTHDAY !!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO COURTNEY.....


HELEN COURTNEY, named after her
great-grandmother, my mom, Helen.

Courtney turns 20 yrs old today...... 1/11/12

As you can see, she is a beauty...what you CAN'T see
is her beautiful heart and soul.

"We love you dearly, Court....
and hope this birthday is one of your very best."

Love forever, Memaw and Granddad





The following is a rerun from last March...
   I do get excited over the smallest things.
....things that make my heart sing...
like BLACK AND WHITE things.:)
and Peppermint Bark

Peppermint Bark...ummm
and Peppermint Candles....

I'll swear, I look JUST LIKE THIS in the mornings when I get up.
Well, except MY hair isn't BLACK anymore...:)

POLKA DOT LOVE
I am in POLKA DOT HEAVEN.
THRIFTING has been good to me....
;)
I found this LOVEABLE cup, in my beloved Black and White..
A GRANDMOTHER CUP.

How could ANY grandmother give this away to the SALVATION ARMY ?
I mean...
look what's written inside the cup, along the rim, with a little hanging on.
All the sweet writing on this lone cup .......
*huge gulp
so sweet, i can't stand it.


Uh Hu, I do love PEPPERMINT BARK
....and black and white...

"A house needs a grandma in it." ~Louisa May Alcott ♥ ♥ ♥


BLACK AND WHITE....SUGAR.. HONEY.. PEPPERMINT....
GRANDMOTHER...
all the same thing !
It all equals LUV

For the month of JANUARY...HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DEEDS AND TO COURTNEY.....♥♥

Happy Birthday to your beautiful, Courtney!

Wonder what it is about black and white that seems to speak to all of us? Love it. I don't care much for anything peppermint, but my daughter loves it!!

Vee said...

Ahhh, the January girls or are they the December girls...hope that their birthdays were lots of fun and that they always know just how you feel about them. It's perfectly obvious to me.

Do you use your leftover candy canes in the peppermint bark? I've got a ton of them and I don't think they'll all be going into hot chocolate.

NanaDiana said...

Courtney is a beauty. It is extra special when the inside matches the outside, isn't it?

Love all your black and white- especially the cup! Hope you are having a good week- xo Diana

Your granddaughters are all pretty girls. My take on the good fines we make at the goodwill is that...the people have passed away and they're things are given away.

Desire Empire said...

Oh to be twenty again. Looks like a fabulous celebration.

That is such a sweet cup. Maybe the grandmother that once had it passed away. I can't imagine that someone would give it away otherwise. I love all the other black and white pieces you have too.
