This Mother's Day was sweet. Just me and my kids spending the day together at Silver Dollar City. Hubby is stuck at home right now because he is recuperating from a torn achilles tendon. Before we left I was treated to some lovely gifts. Lindsey made me this beautiful scrapbook that spells out my name.
It is just awaiting the pictures. She says that anyone can create an album by spelling out any name or word you want. They have all the letters in all sizes at the Scrap Nook. She really customized this book to my taste. Blue is my favorite color.
I also got some lovely plants. Isn't this begonia gorgeous?
This succulant is one of the prettiest I've ever seen and I think maybe even I can keep it alive. Jordan also got me a pretty african violet.
Lindsey really surprised me with this adorable planter. Isn't it precious?
It is hard these days to get in the treasure hunting because Lindsey now works sometimes on Saturdays. She didn't have to be there until 2:00 last weekend so we managed to get in a couple of antique stores.
This little planter was a favorite find and I'm always on the lookout for tea trivets. This one is hand painted and was made by Lefton.
I haven't shown many things that I've been making lately. One of the reasons is that it's been so rainy it's hard to get good pictures. I am going to devote a post soon to some of the things I've been making.
I found a pattern for this little fellow and my son wanted me to make one. His name is Rudy the Rectangle. He was really easy. I didn't even use the pattern except to see how big to make him.
Rudy and I wish you all much happiness! Twyla
