 A dear family friend passed away in September.
Our family was passed down a few treasures, to remember her by.

 We received some of her hiking sticks. 
Our family loves to hike and she did too. 
What a treasure to think of us and pass her hiking sticks on to our family.

 Two lovely blankets!
Handmade with love.

 Lovely flowers to make me smile.

 Hand stitched with the thought of summer in the air.

Knowing blue is my favorite color!
Friends are the greatest of gifts.
Take time to tell your friend what he or she means to you!

Sending all of you a Hug for this weekend.
And the winner of our Thanksgiving Giveaway this week is Benita at Chasing Quaintness
