The BEST things in life...

The BEST things in life are those small tokens of little material value but given straight from the heart....this is what my daugther, Katie, gave me today after school. Made just for me for my birthday (which is more than a month away but couldn't wait to give it to me). It is glazed clay, molded by her own little hands - a Mama bluebird (my favorite color) in a nest:


I very nearly cried....my precious girl knows me so well....
Until next time....I'm still trying to click away at the blog comments!

  3. Aren't those the BEST gifts?!?! And yours is especially sweet :) We have a whole shelf of treasures molded by the kiddos' little hands...and it is so precious to see how proud they are of them too!

    Thanks for the RIT website info, think I'm gonna have to go get more fabric to try some of those combos out (and when hubby asks why I need more fabric, I'm gonna blame you, LOL!!!)

  4. What a precious gift!!! It brings back memories when Mike made me a clay porcupine (it looked like a nose with spikes). I still have it on my desk at work.

    That little birdie will be one of your most precious treasures. Aren't children such a blessing!
