Catching up with 'Mimmie'

Oh Dear Sweet Friends, I haven't dropped off the face of the Earth, just dropped into a whole new realm of Life ~ Grandmotherhood, is that even a word?, or for me it would be Mimmiehood. That's a new word created by moi. Yes, dainty little Miss Johanna Grace came into our lives on May 14th. Just as precious as a little girl can be, and so is her Mother my daughter Lauren. I have been busy keeping up with her, crocheting, and creating in down time. Even had a chance to visit a couple Antique Stores here in Shelton WA.
So there are some New goodies in the Boutique.
And a new favorite Yarn Shop, which just happens to be right on my path to visit with Johanna. Fancy Image Yarns,, is a shop full of hand dyed Merino's and Mohair's. Myra's eye for color is just outstanding with yummy summer, and rich fall hues. This shop is a must have for the Fiber Artist.

Today we took Johanna to the Olympia Farmer's Market. I just Love her New Copli Stroller! Her Blanket here was made by Melissa Danner of 'My Favorite Things', Thank~You Melissa!!

I Hope You ALL are Enjoying a Wonderful Holiday Week~end!!
Huggs, Nancy


  1. Congratulations, Nancy! Isn't she too adorable! Mine is two months away now and I can't believe it is almost time. I'm thinking of Mimi or Mim instead of Grandma, but then again, I guess it's what they can eventually pronounce!

  2. HI Nancy, your sweetie is just adorable. I hope you get to spend lots more time with her. I know you are enjoying every minute!

  3. Oh Nancy, she is just adorable!! And I love the name, Johanna Grace. Just rolls right off the tongue! I know what you mean about grand parenting. I mean, isn't that why we had kids!

    And you did the right thing naming yourself. I though it would be really neat to let the first grandchild name me. I was wrong. He named me Mahmoo. Too late to change it now. The other grandma chose Nana. Oh well. It's unique. I don't think there are too many Mahmoo's out there.

    Hope you are having a fantastic Memorial Day weekend.

    Your new granddaughter is adorable.

  5. Oh Nancy, Johannah is just gorgeous. Snuffle her once for me and send me that baby smell! I always say that is what angels must smell like, it stays with our precious bundles when they come down from heaven. She looks so content and peaceful. Hope she is a good baby.
    Hugs to our new Mimi, too. Grandmotherhood is the best!

  7. Johanna is absolutely precious! She looks like a little doll beneath the blanket :) Did you crochet those fabulous flowers? I love those colors!


  8. Oh what a wonderful gift you've received! Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy!


  9. What a precious bundle of love & joy! Oh she is so sweet! I love what someone else wrote about babies' smell - like angels. I can smell it still. Grandmotherhood is THE BEST thing this side of heaven, I am sure.
    Blessings on the wonderful new family.

  10. Hi nancy,
    So many beautiful pictures, but of course the star is Johanna Grace. She is a sweet little angel. Welcome to the world of grandmotherhood.

  11. Still trying to get caught up on everyones Show and Tells. I love the picture of your GD. It doesnt get any better than that. Is she your first grandchild ? I just met one the other day for the first time but hes getting ready to turn 19 so I missed out on all the fun you are going to be having with this precious little girl. Have fun. Kath'

  14. Congratulations Nancy! What a sweet wee one!

    When my oldest had my first grand, she said "Mom, you look too young to be a grandmother so I want Lilly (my grand) to call you something else"....Lilly now calls me "FiFi"!

    You will love being a FiFi!
