Welcome!

My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day Everyone!

I just wanted to pop in and let you know about the sale today.  Everything at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff 40% off in honor of all the mom's out there.

To honor my awesome mom, gosh I still miss her everyday, here is one of my favorite pictures of her.  This was maybe around 1950 in Germany.  I love her braids, and with her name being Heidi, I always thought she looked just like THE Heidi from the story. 


I love you mom. 

Hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating and remembering too...

That was a BEAUTIFUL picture, Karin. Thanks for sharing it... Heidi, yes I remember having read the book but don't recall the story at all. Your mum was so pretty! Yes, I agree, those braids are lovely. Thank God for blogging and girlfriends to make up the loss in whatsoever little way...

Hugs,

Monica
