SHOW & TELL #1 - Meet Great Grandma Beryl

Show & Tell Friday.....such fun!!! Go here , at My Romantic Home, to find out all about it, participate and visit all the posts showing neat things.

Just a few weeks ago I posted about some of the lovely Christmas decorations that grace our home each year and about the wonderful woman , Great Grandma Beryl, who gifted them to us.

Beryl came to town this week and we were blessed Tuesday to meet her, our son, Marc, & his fiancee, Deann at one of our favorite places, Ol*ive Ga*rden.

Would you believe that she is 85 years YOUNG? She is, and will be the first to tell you!!! She is in almost perfect health and full of more vim and vigor than almost anyone I know. What a remarkable woman she is and how blessed we are to have her as part of OUR family.

She was suppose to be in town the week before, but had to cancel due to the rare blizzard we had here Christmas eve. When she arrived and called she said, "I have a little something for you."

I should have known right then that "little something" in Beryls vocabulary is something BIG and GRAND because that's the way she is.

Just look at this wonderful, beautiful, stunning wreath she made for us!!!!! The picture does NOT even begin to do it justice as it glistens like rubies and pearls & gold.

Thank you so much, Beryl. You are the real JEWEL that shines and blesses each & every body you know.

Here I have just opened this beautiful wreath.
