THE BLUE BIRD OF HAPPINESS!

Happy Monday Everyone!  It's also time for Blue Monday over at Smiling Sally's!

It looks like the Blue Bird of Happiness has flown into my home
 I got a $1 'junk' bag at the thrift 
I saw candles and some napkin rings in the bag, 
but when I opened it at home
Out flew this little guy
He is very sweet and such a pretty color of Blue
He also helping me with a big announcement! 


My baby is having a baby!
I'm going to be a Grandma! 

I am over the moon with happiness and wanted to share this with all of you.  My daughter Sara and son in law Blake are so happy.  They will be the best parents!  The little Mom is feeling well and is due in April! 

So plan on lots of Grandma talk and Baby thrifitng! 
She's going to be a wonderful Mother!
I love you Baby Girl!

Always,
Linda

Oh Linda, what FABULOUS NEWS! Sara is so adorable. Oh wow. I can't imagine what it must be like to be a Grandma. Hope I'll know someday.

Guess what? I have the SAME exact sweet turquoise birdie plus two others, one a little bigger. So I have a Mom and two babies. They are on the windowsill in one of the bathrooms.

A Hopeful Heart said...

Oh, Linda, I'm rejoicing with you!!! Such fabulous news!! And I'm glad that y'all live fairly close to one another, so you will be able to have LOTS of time with the sweet little one.

By the way, I love the bluebird of happiness. This post reminds me that I have one too...packed away in some box, no doubt, because I don't have a built-in china cabinet in this house. So all my Precious Moments and some other collectibles have never come out of the moving boxes.

Blessings and hugs,
Patti

Congratulations! There is nothing better than a baby!

The Bluebird of Happiness is made right here where I live. Your birdie might be signed Leo Ward - he founded the Bluebird of Happiness. He's sort of a character that makes the rounds here. Here's the website so you can see the Artist Village and other fun things. http://www.terrastudios.com/

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Congratulations Linda! I am so excited for you. Being a grandmother is just the best! Love your little bluebird, and I would definitely agree that the bluebird of happiness has flown into your life! Both of my children were born in April - best time of the year to have a baby. You don't have to go through the heat of summer being pregnant, and you don't have to worry about taking a newborn out in the cold after they are born. laurie
