Memorable Memorial Day - 2018

I intended to post yesterday on Memorial Day but Mother Nature had other plans! Big rains, lots of lightening & then, we lost our internet connection. But, oh what a glorious reminder of all we have to be grateful for. Hope your Memorial Day was memorable, as well. With gratitude to those who gave their all ....  love, faith.


Happy Mother's Day!!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there! Hope you are having a wonderful day!

I remember the sparkle in my mom's eyes every time I made her something - whether it was little or big didn't matter - she loved it all. She cheered me on through my embroidery & crewel work days, as well as my ceramic phase. And, when it didn't work out so great (macaroni art comes to mind), she would rescue the moment with:  "It's the thought that counts & I LOVE it!"  And, so she did. 

She especially cherished this Tree of Life Wall Hanging which she looked at every day. It's from "Big-Block Quilts by Magic" by Nancy Johnson-Srebro. I traced the outline of mom & dad's hands, as well as all of us "kids" on a rare get-together when we were all in the same place at the same time. And, I quilted those hand outlines around the outside border with mom's & dad's hands, thumbs crossed over each other at the top. As I cherish it every day, I remember the sparkle in my mom's loving eyes & life is good. 💕  love, faith.




Happy Easter - soon!

The checkout guy said: "You know it's still winter - right?!!"  Oh yes, but Easter is coming!  I will have Violas - or Johnny Jump Up's - or whatever you call them :)  And, they will be on the table instead of planted outside. Because it's still Winter outside - with a little touch of Spring on the inside :)  Happy Easter - Happy Spring!  love, faith.

Happy Day After Thanksgiving!

OK, I'm a little late with the Thanksgiving Greetings, but time got away from me a little bit this year - does that happen to you, too?!  And, I have to admit I really like the day after Thanksgiving a LOT!  So, "Happy Leftover Day" to you & yours! 

Now that you're relaxed with eyes glazed over from all the scrumptious leftovers eaten straight from the refrigerator, do you know it's about THIRTY DAYS until Christmas?  YIKES!  Are you awake now? Does this photo help?

Happy Father's Day!!

Hope you're spoiling your father rotten right now!  If I could be there, I'd be enjoying a BIG bite of Raisin Pie with a cup of coffee.  My dad makes great coffee 💞  And, I make great pie 💗 What's your favorite Father's Day celebration or memory?  love, faith.



Happy Mother's Day! Time to ....

It snowed here this morning - really BIG, HAPPY flakes. The air is brisk which makes the daffodils & tulips stand up even straighter!  And, it made me smile & remember my mom's favorite morning greeting:  
"Time to Rise & Shine!" 

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Mother's Day!
