This is just to cute

How cute is this?? My 82 year old Grandmother (83 in May) has started a blog for our family. She is originally from England. She met and married my Grandfather during the war. He packed up her family and brought them all to America with him. I believe she was in her late teens at the time. Still after all these years in the states, she has the most adorable English accent.

She's been through a lot in her life but somehow it hasn't affected her sense of humor. She is a pistol!

In her opening statement on her blog she promises to offer up advice about life. Along with many family photos old and new. She also plans on taking us along on a photographic tour of all of her adventures. And boy does this woman travel!! How great is that? If you happen to stop by and check it out you'll see where my daughters red hair comes from!

On another note- It's been a while since we've had a Treasures Thursday. I ventured out today even in "Storm Watch 2010" ;) to see if Goodwill had anything to offer.

Sadly there was nothing. So I stopped by a couple of my favorite vintage shops, sure I would find something there. NOTHING!?! I thought with everyone boarded up and sand bagged in their homes I would score some lovely treasures- but I was wrong.

It's probably for the best. My living room is starting to look like a store with all of my previous scores that have yet to find a home!
