A Valentine Dance... And she's a Catherine too!

A Valentine's Day dance, just for Me!

Meet my precious namesake "Grand" daughter, Catherine, we call her Cate.

I took this shot on Halloween when she was 10 months old. Isn't she just the cutest little dancer?
I couldn't resist thinking that she totally has the ballet moves down, even if she was just sitting at the time. :) For Christmas I found her the cutest little pair of her first tap shoes in like "brand new" condition at an antique store. They are black patent leather and I can't wait to see her dance in them.

For today, have a Happy Valentines Week and Day Everyone from both Cate and Moi!

She is adorable!!! How sweet in her little tutu, you must be very proud!!
How are you? I have been trying to keep up to work and my sewing and a million other things, like usual!!!!
I know how much I wish I could play with the grandchildren, it is hard when they live far away, but so much fun when I do see them!!!
Take care, have a great weekend!

She is adorable. I love the black and white effect. It looks vintage.

I'm sure she will love her new shoes.

How cute is little Miss Cate? OMG dear CC... and to share her grandmothers name? How lovely. I can just hear her with her new tap shoes, driving her mama crazy lol I always wanted tap shoes when I was a kid. My mom wouldn't let me. I would have marked her floor !!!
So nice to see you taking a breath of fresh air. It's not the same when you away. I'm not blogging lately. I did post for Riley's BD..thank you for the note...but other than that just waiting for the next round at the dentist.
March is around the corner. I will talk to you about the plan, if I have one to talk about lol
Miss you, love you. Hopefully see see soon.
Love Claudie

Hello CC~I didn't want to miss the opportunity to come by and wish you a Happy Valentines Day.
Sometimes our lives can become very busy making it difficult to return visits. I appreciate you taking the time to not only visit but, especially for leaving me with your sweet comments.

It truly inspires my creative process. It's always a joy for me to share.
Your mini me is adorable. I can imagine the great happiness she brings to your life. I hope to experience it someday.

Sweet Valentine Wishes,
