My Friend Antoinette

My very dear friend Antoinette has eyes the color of a beautiful summer day. And her generous heart never ceases to amaze me. She is kind to everyone she meets. Always with a soft word, she makes me feel as if I've known her forever and ever. And just maybe I have.
Antoinette has a grandson: Brian Robert who is almost one year young. He is the son of her beautiful daughter Gina, and son-in-law Brian. Brian Robert has made their eyes sparkle even more than before.
Last week, I was browsing through the shop, and came across a book for Grandmother's. It is to tell their story of their life: vacations taken, favorite recipes, relatives of long ago...well, you get where I am going with this. The book is phenomenal in artistry and ideas. It did not take me long to decide that Antoinette needed to have this wonderful book. So I ordered it. And this is the treasure I received.
I can't wait to see and hear her reaction to the journey that she will put on paper. Have fun Antoinette!


  1. Wow what a wonderful gift! I love Susan Branch books! I might have to get one for if I'm ever a Grandma one day! Happy Monday Kathleen!

  2. A gift that will keep on giving. Beautiful my friend. xo

  3. Kathleen,

    What a wonderful, thoughtful gift not only for your dear friend Antoinette but for Brian Robert and one day his children. I am going to search for one for a special grandmother I know. Thank you for sharing.

    Your Friend,


Thanks for visiting.
