Happy Mother's Day/Show and Tell Sunday

Happy Mother's Day to all of my wonderful blogging friends. Once again it is time to share for Show and Tell Sunday. This week Annalise will be hosting so go see her at the Sugar Sugar (link Below) to check out the other wonderful Show and Tell blog posts. Thanks Annalise.

Mother's are so special no matter their demographic, ethnic background, religious affiliation or species. There is nothing like a mother's touch. We quite often take this for granted but it leaves us with a lasting sense of warmth and security that could not be replaced by anything else. Your mother is the first human attachment or bond that you experienced in life.
So I would like to dedicate this post to all of you and your mother's.

This is a 4 generation photo. Right down to baby girl. This was after a long Easter celebration. We were all a little tired but we cooperated with my sister, who thought it was important to document the generations. She was right. Thanks sis.

This is a Romantic Tussy Mussy cone that I made in honor of Mother's Day. It is so pink and sweet. I photographed it in front of a cupboard that I bought on one of my junking trips with Mom and sis. I fell in love with the romantic look of this cupboard. These little kissing cherubs are just gorgeous. My Mom is always such a great sport about going to all the places my sister and I want to go. She is always so supportive and a lot of fun.

Thanks Mom.

Here is a close up of the flower with cameo face and vintage brooch. It has a kind of shabby chic feel to it. When I got it finished I realized that this isn't really my mom's style (more mine) so I am working on another one that fits her better.

I will be off for the weekend to spend it with my mother, my children, my new grand baby (Baby Girl) and my extended family. We will be up north, for our annual morel mushroom hunting trip. Every year at this time about 30 members of my family head north to the woods to share a lodge for the weekend. We head for the woods to look for this odd looking fungus to roll in flour and cook in butter. YUM!

They really do taste better than they look. I guess when you grow up eating them you really don't question the reality of eating fungi so gross and slimy looking. There have been a few years when we really did get into patches of them like the photo above, but most of the time it really does require a lot of hunting and a good pair of eyes. Do any of you mushroom hunt? Do you have any secrets for me. There is a trophy involved and I could use your help.

I hope you all have a beautiful Mother's Day. May you all have the opportunity to spend it with your mother, your child or someone you love.

Leave a comment and let me know how you will share your Mother's day.

Happy Mother's Day Mom

P.S. I love you.
