Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day!  I hope your day is filled with love and joy.

Real Mothers

Real Mothers don't eat quiche.  They don't have time to make it.

Real Mothers know that their kitchen utensils are probably in the sandbox.

Real Mothers often have sticky floors, filthy ovens - and happy kids.

Real Mothers know that dried play dough doesn't come out of carpets.

Real Mothers don't want to know what the vacuum just sucked up.

Real Mothers sometime ask 'Why me?'  They get their answer when a little voice says, 'Because I love you best.'

Real Mothers know that a child's growth is not measured by height or years or grade...

It is marked by the progression of Mommy to Mom to Mother.

The Images of Mother

4 YEARS OF AGE - My Mommy can do anything!

8 YEARS OF AGE - My Mom knows a lot! A whole lot!

12 YEARS OF AGE - My Mother doesn't really know quite everything.

14 YEARS OF AGE - Mom doesn't know anything.

16 YEARS OF AGE - Mother? She's so old-fashioned.

18 YEARS OF AGE - That old woman? She's way out of date!

25 YEARS OF AGE - Well, Mom might know a little bit about it!

35 YEARS OF AGE - Before we decide, let's get Mom's opinion.....

45 YEARS OF AGE - Wonder what Mom would have thought about it?

65 YEARS OF AGE - Wish I could talk it over with Mom.

Pink Saturday - How Does One Lose a Table?

--- Eloise

I bought these gorgeous pink metal chairs with mosaic seats and backs a couple of years ago at Marshall's.  I also bought the matching table and it was a great bargain.  $20.00 for each chair and for the table.  They're a wonderful quality - I can hardly lift the chairs.  Since we have cold, snowy winters I asked my husband to store the set in our basement until Spring.  My son stopped by to carry them upstairs for me last week while my husband was out of town.  He brought up both chairs but couldn't find the table.  Anxious as I was to have them in place on my patio, I waited until my hubby got home to bring the table upstairs.  No table.  I've searched, he's searched, and our son has searched.  HOW DOES ONE LOSE A TABLE???   It's probably 24 - 30 inches wide and it's hot pink just like the chairs.  Go figure.  I'm mad I can't show the whole set off today, but here are the gorgeous chairs.  What's life without a little mystery...

This hand painted cement pot with matching heart was an early Mother's Day gift from my sweet sister-in-law.  Loves it!

My Lupine has gone crazy...all in shades of pink, of course!

Sweet English Daisies...

I'm hoping for a successful try with this gorgeous pink Mandevilla...

HUGE hot pink Gerbera Daisies!

Dainty Perennial Geranium...

Potted pink Geraniums...always a favorite!
