Little Miss Abby

Hello everyone,
     I had a special little visitor this morning as our granddaughter Abby had some alone time with me. I had another post prepared but I loved how these turned out so I couldn't wait to share them.

Abby loves her tea parties.
Little Miss Abby is five years old this month.

I think this one just might be my favorite!

Or maybe this one?
I sure did enjoy my alone time with you, little Miss Abby!

Well, I have some house cleaning to do today as Friday is our first house & garden tour and I have focused mainly on getting the little cottage and the garden ready up until today.

We are having lovely warm weather and although it is cloudy today it is still a nice spring day.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Awe, she's adorable, Carolyn! I love her hat; a very photogenic little girl! Nice to have some alone time with her.
Enjoy your first garden tour.


Teresa said...

She's lovely! She looks like something out of a Children's Tale - so sweet and beautiful.

Oh Carolyn,

She is just a little cutie pie! Look at that sweet shy face!

Alone time, how wonderful.

And she is the PERFECT age for tea parties!

What a sweet sweet post!

Carmen said...

Love the photos! You have such a beautiful grandaughter- how fun! Makes me look forward to being a grandma. (:

Hi Carolyn,

She´s so sweet! I would have trouble too, choosing a favourite picture. They are all very lovely.

Enjoy your day!

Elzie said...

Such a sweet little girl. I just can't figure how you got her to sit stil for such a long time. My grandchildren would have gotten tired after a minute, lol. Not easy to chose a favourite there.
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

She's beautiful, Carolyn. This is a very sweet post. I did something similar with my 2 year old grand-daughter for Tuesday tea parties. They are so sweet with their tea-cups at that age. We are doing a great deed bring tea time into their lives. ;-) Deb

She is so sweet and precious. Every photo is absolutely delightful. I would never be able to pick a favorite picture. It's easy to see that she loves her grandma Carolyn! It's also so nice to see a little girl in sweet little dresses, we don't see that much anymore and it is so lovely. Beautiful post!

Betty said...

Oh how wonderful it is to have granddaughters. I have six. Your portraits are fabulous. I drop in to see you every morning.

Hello Carolyn
Miss Abby not only likes tea, but to wear a hat like Grandma. You got some fabulous shots of Abby, she's a little sweetie.
Gosh, your first garden tour already - well I know they'll enjoy your house and grounds and hopefully the weather will remain pleasant.

Little girls are so much fun at this age. They love girly girl things! She is a sweet as a button and I think I love them all. She is darling and I bet she loves her time with you just as much!

Abby is just adorable, Carolyn! What a beautiful photo shoot you did with her. It is raining here today but warmish at 13. I'm hoping for a nice sunny weekend aren't you?

These photos should be in a gallery. They are so beautiful and your granddaughter is lovely. I could have so much fun with her.

Thank you for a lovely break in the day. Your posts are always a breath of fresh air.

She is adorable! Love her hat and dresses. I miss that age!



Que linda! Tenho só meninos e uma grande paixão por meninas. Sonho por uma neta e momentos maravilhosos como este. É uma benção.
Aproveite cada minuto como um doce presente de Deua.

Uma boa semana!

I don't know how I missed these last few posts, Carolyn. I'm so glad I checked back to find this one! Little Miss Abby is, indeed, a beauty! How lucky she is that grandma is such an expert photographer! She will treasure these always.
