This Sunday we celebrate someone who is very close to our hearts, our mothers. The memories of our mother's love and the traditions that we have developed over the years will blend to create another special day to honor the one person we owe so much.
I always look for these when I go to flea markets and antique malls. They are usually inexpensive.
One of the things I like about them are the frames themselves. Old, wooden, usually kind of loose at the corners and the print held in by nails. Why is it that these old things seem so familiar? I think it reminds me of my grandma's house.
I found this unusual mother's day wallpocket, which is another of my favorite collectibles.
This weekend I couldn't resist picking up this sweet little planter. It will go with my ever growing collection.
Remember my blue Fire King bowls from last week's post? I think I am having some kind of a lucky spell lately because I found this set of Harvest Ballerina refrigerator bowls very inexpensively. They were all bought seperately.
My mother likes to go to garage sales, although she can't do it as much as she used to. I may have gotten that from her. She says things like, "I don't have room for it" or "I don't need it." I Didn't get that from her. The many things that we learn and inherite from our mothers make us the people we are today. Being a mother is the most important thing in my life and I am so lucky that I have two of the best kids ever!
Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers! Twyla
