My other favorite ME treasure!

A few weeks back, in my Cherry Chick's ME Monday  blog, I said I had two favorite ME treasures.  I wrote about one, the knobs on my kitchen doors, now I'd like to share my second favorite. 

laundry 005Actually, this is a birthday card given to me by a friend, close to 30 years ago........gee, seems like yesterday... I loved it and framed it.  The reflection off of the glass makes it a little difficult to read....it says "She who laughs last", an oft used Mary saying but, in this case, it so fits the recipient of the card, me, 'cause #1 I have a distinctive laugh and #2 I use it often....first, last and always!

Currently, the framed card resides in the utility room and hangs with another favorite of mine, not from ME, but embroidered for me by a friend......................

laundry 004You may have heard this before, it reads "If I'd know Grandchildren were so much fun....I'd have had them first".  Well, don't I believe that, love my kids but their kids are truly my reward for raising them!

cline famil 002Here they are "hanging out".....two of my favorite pieces of wall decor!

Hope you enjoyed and join me at Cherry Chick's ME Monday and Rednesday  where you will find lots of other great bloggers and enjoy their stories.  I always appreciate comments and LOVE followers!

Both are wonderful but that embroidery piece is amazing. She is very talented.

Both of those must make you smile each time you walk by! I love anything ME, and the saying on that second one is pretty funny. Although my daughter is only 21, I look forward to spoiling some grandkids!
Happy REDnesday!

I remember that ME card! Funny how many of hers I do remember - they really do strike a chord, don't they?! & how wonderful to receive an ME embroidery from your friend. They make a lovely display together.
Happy Rednesday,
Sally

Never realized ME cards had been around that long. I like her artwork. I cross stitch so I'm also partial to the one your friend made just for you.

Happy REDnesday!

Just beautiful. How precious to have that card all this time. I do the same also with some cards I have received. I also keep all my cards in a wicker basket that others have sent me. From time to time I go back to read them. Some of the cards that have been sent are from loved ones that have died..so I cry when I read what they wrote, see their hand writing and remember them. sigh.
