A Busy Week of Family Events


Just after Valentine's
it was second son's birthday.
The crescent moon is heraldic symbol for second son
and as you can see his candles would light up the night sky.


You will remember these young folks visited recently.
What Donna didn't know is that when they left for home
Mark also took along his grandmother's engagement ring...


....and this Friday he gave her the ring.
So my scratchings include the star symbol for third son
and Mi'kmaq hieroglyphs that says
how deeply they love each other.


Talking of rings...
I put my wedding ring amongst these teeny tiny postcards and letters.
My grandmother's joy in life was entertaining children.
She made these minute mailings for us.


 Those of you with British blood will recognize
the Telegraph and the Times newspapers
lying next to a postman's bag...


....and the old letterboxes
 that were easy to find in busy towns
and tiny village.

It's been quite a red-letter week in our family!

  1. a very beautiful way to symbolise second son's birthdate.
    oh those postcards and letters are so very tiny, i was thinking your ring was a magnifying glass until i re-read it. very clever and imaginative.

  2. Holy Cow, those letters were small! I love your stitching this week. I like the idea of setting a permanent mark in the Universe announcing their love.
