  1. CB –

    I’m glad you got Gram’s S/P shakers!

    Made you the bookmark with dragons, ’cause I thought you collected them? Could send you something else if you like – have lots of different charms/beads. This is what I’ve been doing when it’s too cold out and I get bored!

  2. I love that so much. One of my cousins got two handkerchiefs my grams stitched on…I have been hinting for years now to get one! I hope she´ll take the bait eventually.

    I am happy for you!

  3. Jackie — I did once have a dragon collection. I no longer do, but I still like dragons and I love this book thong. I plan on writing you an approriate thank you note after work.

    Minka — My Gram raised me. When she died I took nothing from her house. For 19 years now I have regreted that. Now I have her salt shakers.

  4. I love presents like that! I have my mother’s teapot that is shaped like a squirrel. Ugliest damn thing you’ve ever seen, but I have only a fist full of good memories of my biological mother and one of them is a tea party using this pot.

  5. Hi Quill

    It is always nice to get a surprise in the mail. Especially more so when it is an attachment to a past with special memories.

    A wonderful day is wished for you.

  6. Kat — I spent a lot of time with Gram in the kitchen. Often I just sat on the stool by the fridge and talked to her while she worked.

    Bill — yes. This was an extra special treat.

    Lori — my Gram raised me, so most of my childhood memories feature her.

  7. Those were some wonderful surprises in the mail. And believe it or not, I do vaguely remember those salt and pepper shakers. The bookmark my mama made for you is great. What I want to know is why she hasn’t sent me one yet… I love you.

  8. Brooke — maybe your momma was worried about me this weekend and thought I might need cheering up. Luckily, she was wrong. But I still love the bookmark and I’m keeping it!

  9. You’re my second friend that got “just because” this week! I LOVE “just because”!!! It doesn’t matter which side of it you’re on, it’s FUN! That is soooooo cool! And nice to have those shakers too!
