Old Album Scrapbook

I Had this sitting in my bookshelf for a year or something and never really looked at it till now. Mom-(both my parents are gone now)-had glued old cards and pictures of the Czar of Russia, Queen Victoria and their family picture, so they would be a good 70 years or so old I guess. Initials of my great great grandmother were found on some of the cards.
She loved dolls and flowers and pink things and roses as I do. A lot of these little tiny cards you can see in the picture here were printed with flowers and a Bible verse.

This is Hoods 1898 coupon Calendar picture. you can find one on ebay right now for $20.

I love pansies too. Some one had very beautiful handwriting as did my mother, with lots of swirls. This looks very close to calligraphy.
Today I had a visit with my youngest daughter, they live about an hour away, still a bit to travel when the price of gas is so high. It was very nice to have them home, We made bread and lentil loaf and played in the garden. Looked for worms which the little one was terribly afraid of. She screamed and lifted her feet off the ground as if to get away from the bugs that might be walking under her feet!!!! she is smelling a crocus and saying it smell soooo goood grandmom!!!

I had a bunch of buttons around that i strung on a pink ribbon and hid them in a music box with a ladybug finger puppet and a tiny bitsy baby doll and a winney the pooh watch. She loved it. The buttons were her favorite and she put them over her head and said I am a lady now!!!!!
They say when you see the first shoots of rhubarb that Spring is here. and surely it must be because there they are!!! Four plants of them. And we had our first warm rain storm today also. Yeah.
