Hello, and thank you for coming by for a visit at Bunny Cottage. Today, I am participating in two "parties", Vintage Alphabet, and Tea Things on Tuesday. For the Vintage Alphabet party on Etsy Cottage Style, our letters this month are "I", "J" and "K". For "I", I chose to show vintage images of my great grandparents, John Dawson Smith, and Roena Josephine White Smith. I know very little about my great grandparents, they were my daddy's grandparents, and you can imagine my joy when I found these pictures of them. I would say it was quite by accident, but I believe God led me to them. I was browsing through some geneaology places on my computer, and lo and behold, I found these wonderful pictures and now know the cemetery in which they are buried. I also know their birthdates and dates of their death. I see my great grandmother loved jewelry as I do, too. For "J", I chose the jewelry that she is wearing. I have always been drawn to antique jewelry or at least jewelry that looks antique. I feel a bond with these two people because we are a part of each other. I celebrate the love they shared for each other. For "K", I chose the kaleidoscope of colors in my vintage style garden. All the flowers I grow are of the antique or old garden variety, and I love the old fashioned names: Rose of Sharon, Pinks, Flags, Bachelor Buttons and so on. For the Tea Party, I am showing a favorite tea cup and creamer and sugar. I hope you have enjoyed our little time together, sweet friends. Wishing you a wonderful week and much happiness and joy~Please visit Etsy Cottage Style for a list of those participants at http://etsycottagestyle.blogspot.com/ Please visit Martha at http://marthasfavorites.com/ and Sandi at http://sandimyyellowdoor.blogspot.com/ and Katherine at http://ladykatherineteaparlor.blogspot.com/ for the tea party participants.
