Blog Giveway

How many reasons to thank Mom for all she taught me?
Mom's talent and love of decorating was infectious. Her taste was classic meets artistic, a woman way ahead of her time.

Consequently, I was moving furniture around in my bedroom at an early age, painting things, covering everything in different colored and patterned paper and accessorizing to go with it; then changing it. Now I take her Classic yet Artistic style into my Interior Design business. Thanks Mom...

Birthday Giveaway

Mom has turned 88 years old and it is time to celebrate. My mom is and has been my nurturer, friend, confidante, teacher and more.
So let me introduce you to a remarkable lady. Mom came from poverty and a family with 8 siblings. She became a wordly, confident, extremely intelligent woman. When she was still a young woman, she became a widow with twin children (me) and my 2 grown up sisters.

She helped in founding many local civic organizations such as the "The Mother of Twins". She also was a founder in bringing much needed medical services and clinics for woman to our area.
Mom is well read, well traveled, a painter, has written a short story, has a lovely singing voice, knits like no other, unbelievable seamstress (made all my gown and dresses), beautiful, stylish and an incredible MOM. So, thanks for reading.
The blog giveway will be shown next, stay tuned...

On Pointe II

Rehearsal is finished for the day...
shall she view the Eiffel tower from the Art Nouveau wrought iron balcony or gently tip toe to the adjacent park with her friend to rest their bodies and minds-always careful not to stain their white satin pointe shoes. If necessary they can cover them with lovely yellow raw silk dupioni covers...
relaxed, yet always poised, they listen to the birds..

feed the birds...

" Feed the birds
tuppence a bag
tuppence, tuppence
tuppence a bag."

I love Mary Poppins, and I love feeding the birds. Why have I not put out birds feeders before to be enchanted each morning by who comes to visit? The pair of morning doves? the little chickadees or the bossy blackbird? Krumpet & I do not care, just keep visiting, you too!

My hope is that you are having a wonderful week, that you feel like a princess and pale pink roses are never too far away. This lovely photograph is courtesy of the incredibly talented Chez Fifi, thank you. Feeling very sentimental with this image along with Mother's day just last week but most importantly my Mom's birthday this month, she will be 88 years young.
Have a great day...
