Asleep on the hay


This sweet face just makes me step back...

Take a minute and remind myself of so many blessings around.




The story behind the picture above started with a little red box.

It belonged to my Maw Maw that is now living with Jesus.

She treasured so many tiny things.

Things that would normally get pitched out in the rubble.

She saved.

She cherished.

Even the small things.


I was given the box after she had passed (at a sweet age of 100 1/2) Bless her.

Inside was a small assortment of greeting cards.

Many I'm assuming are very old.


Are these not the sweetest cards you've ever seen?


My favorite was the sweet baby Jesus.

I have been drawn to that precious card for years.

 I have even set it out with my Christmas decorations.

Yesterday..

I pulled that card out and brought it to a print shop in town.

I had them blow it up to 24"x 24"

When she handed me the print...goosebumps!

It didn't take but a second to know just what I would do.

I decoupaged it right onto a piece of wood.



I didn't have to age it up much because "true years" took care of that for me.

I did hit it with a bit of stain and sanded the edges some before applying the mod podge.

After it was dry, I added some trim.




I. Am. In. Love.

Honestly, if I had a baby at home, I would hang it in the nursery year round.

I placed it on my mantel for now and I'm just enjoying it.

I'm having fun just thinking of all the places I could hang it for Christmas.


I may just keep it up year round.

It's just so sweet!

If you are interested in this sweet print, email me.

I would be happy to make one for you too..

I think my Maw Maw would be so proud of her little treasure now.

xoxo Susie

  13. I absolutely love it! So very precious, not only the subject matter but the story behind it! I have some vintage Christmas cards that were my great-aunt's (that I never had the privilege of knowing). I got them several months after Momma passed away, and I had a happy surprise when I found a card that she had sent to Aunt Nell before I was even a twinkle in Momma's eye. :)

  15. That is just adorable!! What a great idea to turn a greeting card into a piece of art. Of course the story about it belonging to you Maw Maw just makes it even more precious!
