Antique shopping, orders done..dress fitting..

Monday, oh why do you come so fast.. teehee..  I actually had a productive weekend considering all of the sadness Bre was going through..  She stayed with us Friday night and then Saturday we hit a couple antique shops where I got an old wood and metal sled and an old lacey tablecloth.. I could have bought so much more but I was trying to be good.. Now I just have to figure out how to display my sled..  I have seen some cute ideas in the past with some ice skates and maybe a wreath... Any ideas??  I will take some photos and post them.  Bre got a couple of really cute wood barrels to put outside to plant in..  Then we took her out for lunch..  Bre left to meet some friends who were all getting together.. I spent the rest of the night finishing up some more orders.  Here they are:






Glad I got those done on Saturday so we had Sunday to have fun at Bre's dress fitting.. All of the girls in the wedding were there as well as my friend with her cute little daughter, Saige.  She is going to be Breanna's flower girl.  I was so glad everyone showed up and hoped it would take Bre's mind off of losing her friend if just for a little while.. 

It is the worst feeling to know that you can't just wave your magic wand and make all your child's sadness go away...  The only thing we can do is be there for her...  I try to be strong for her but when she cries, it tears me up inside and my eyes start filling up with water...  In fact, I had to pause writing this for a minute cuz Bre called.. She has been writing what she wants to say at his funeral.. oh boy..  it was hard enough to hear her read it and hear how upset she is on the phone, let alone seeing her reading it at the funeral.. So proud of how strong she is and how hard it is for her to get up there and say something but she is doing it for him...

Now that my face and eyes are probably red from talking to her on the phone and typing this, I better finish this up and get a hold of myself... since I am at work... teehee...

Thank you so much for listening and visiting me here...  Have a blessed day!
Hugs, Tina

Oh goodness, just reading this makes me tear up. It's so very, very hard to see our babies sad when there is nothing we can do for them. You are doing your best for her, being there is something she will always remember.

You had a busy weekend! Love it all, but those picture pillows are really cool!

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day~
