The bouncy house looks like fun. My daughter was so tiny she would get bounced around and could never get up!


Pixie Pie is almost as cite as Sugar Wings! I rember when my niece was 4 (she's almost 30 now) my sisters took her to one of those houses with all the balls. That's when they didn't ban adults from those places. It was so much fun! However, everything was fun when your 28. Oh, everything is still fun!!!



Goodness........you've got to take your little Sugarwings to a modeling agency....she is a BEAUTY! Holy COW!....just adorable.

Nope, I agree, there is nothing better than being a grandma. My little guy is the light of my life and the joy of my heart....my license plate ring even says so!

Great job on the bed. Can't wait to see it all finished.



I have to say Karla, that is one beautiful grandbaby!


My goodness...sugarwings is beautiful...just like an angel. She needs to model...

Any child would be blessed to have such a devoted and fun loving grandma like you.

You definitely put the GRAND in grandma! Such lovely pictures of Sugarwings!


Good luck with all your projects. The bed is going to be beautiful and I know the little princess will enjoy it. She is so beautiful.

What a great afternoon! What fun having tea and jumping up and down, yes sometimes life is a bowl of cherries! Those wooden 'farm' animals, houses, gates and trees can be quite old. They are from Germany, from the 'Erz' mountains. People over there make the most lovely wooden toys, they did so for centuries and they are still doing, therefor these pieces are hard to date. When you put them in the sun they will loose color, so that isn't a way of dating them either, but they are nice. Great idea to glitter them for Christmas decoration!


That picture of you in the bouncy castle is so great! I love it when people can still love that hard and are not afraid to show themselves laughing like that on a picture. It is so much better than all those fake smiles on posed pictures. Love the finds you did on the flea markets. You sure have a talent for that!


Your picture of Sugarwings is breathtaking!
You can practically see see a cool blue pool in those eyes and her skin looks like peaches and cream! She certainly photogenic!
Your new camera is great and I love the depth of field on your large portrait.!! The zoo looks like great fun. You all look like you're having a blast. Look forward to more great pictures.


Of course Sugarwings deserves a custom made feather mattress! And what an adorable picture of her! She gets prettier every day! Looks like you had a lot of fun in the bouncy house at the zoo!!!

Wow, Karla, making a mattress. That is truly a labor of love! :O) There are some companies that will custom make mattresses for you. You can google search them. Not sure of the cost.

Karla, One thing always leads to another doesn't it. Who but sugarwings will have a custom mattress? You took some really cute photos of the little kiddies . I loved seeing them. Have a great Sunday evening.

Hey Karla; OH my; your Sugar Wings sure is a beauty, love all the photos of her. I wish you lot's of luck with the feather bed mattress, sounds and looks like fun, but will be well worth it, her bed is so pretty fit for a Princess... Have a great week.



What a way to spend the day - having the see on your own. Well, those two little fairies deserve it, after a birthday celebration is being held :-)

can't wait to see the finished fairy bed. The posts in them is just a nice one to play with. And I'll know you'll make something really grand! :-)

Guess it has been said...Sugarwings is a toal Knockout in that first picture. My God in Heaven! She is stunning and exotic! Her cousin is just as sweet and round-faced as pie.

They look like they are the appointed royalty in the picture on the bed...too funny. Love these Karla. Thanks for the treat!

First, that photo of Sugarwings is a prizewinner. Enter it now. Somewhere.

Second -- you are making a mattress. I'm thinking we should call the people with the little white coats. This only confirms my thoughts when I saw the beautiful but oh-my-God wallpaper steps... You are making a mattress. My mouth is agape. Like WOW.
