My Mother, like her daughter, has always loved blue and white! And my Mom also loves tea! So what could be better than a tea-pot bouquet inside a blue and white tea-pot. I made this for her using a mixed bouquet that I bought at Wal-Mart for about $7.00. The tea-pot was one I had on hand.
I sure hope she likes it!
I am keeping it wrapped in the the fridge until Sunday.
I set this table for my Mom last summer. Again, her love of blue and white with a touch of yellow! I found the yellow lace tablecloth at GW for about $2... everything else was already on hand.
When I think about it, nearly all my Mom's china has been in some shade of blue!
I purchased this soup tureen for my Mom last Christmas. I thought it fit her well. She loves blue and she also loves folk art!
My Mom Jane Anne is the mother to eight children, grand-mother to 25 and great-grandmother to 2! Pictured here with my Dad and her 8 children (six sons and two daughters) at my parent's golden wedding anniversary. My Dad passed away in 2007, a year and a half after this was taken in 2005. My Mom misses him (as we all do) everyday.
Another picture of my Mom and Dad at my son Joshua's wedding in June 2006. Looking pretty good for a 70 year old!
A more recent picture of my Mom taken this past Christmas. She is pictured with her boyfriend Roger. I think she is looking pretty good for a lady who gave birth to 8 children and is a month shy of her 76th birthday! My Mom is also battling Parkinson's Disease and she is fighting it with all her will.
Oh did I mention that Roger is 8 years her junior! Yap...my Mom is a cougar!
Happy Mothers Day to an amazing woman!
I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let's Dish
