VillaLine up for sweet slices of life!

When I was a little girl my grandma telephoned me and asked, “Hello, Sugar, what kind of cake would you like for your birthday?” Before, I could even answer her question, see added, “I’ll make a vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.”

My grandma was a baker extraordinaire, making certain that the lives near and dear to her were sweet. And by sweet, I mean extra sweet!

She invited me to experience slices of beauty.

“The camellia bush is in full bloom. The petals look heavenly. Come!”

“The carrots are ready to be pulled from the ground. Come!”

Grandma was my favorite person. I stayed with her every summer when I was young (till I was 16). She had the patience to teach me so many things that I still love doing. Gardening, sewing, quilting, making pies and homemade applesause. Something new every summer. Wonderful memories, I still miss her.
