Roses For You On Mother's Day

Hello Friends! I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a Happy Mother's Day! It's been such a full couple of months for me with little time for sharing online. But I wanted to let you know what I have been up to.

For a couple of years we have been sharing an extra house two doors away with one of our sons where family had more room to stay when they came to visit. It was a lot of fun and quite an adventure! As life would have it, our move out date happened at the same time as a change of shop location, so we have been up to our necks at home with all the changes.

The dust is starting to settle a little, and it is a perfect time of year for starting something new with our beautiful cool mornings. My day began with an early stroll through the yard for a look at all the first blooming roses. 

I get full of nostalgia on Mother's Day thinking of my mother and mother in law that have both passed on. I think of my lovely daughter and my daughters in law and the wonderful (hard) job that they are doing. Of my sisters and nieces, and sisters in law and their own daughters. So many special people to remember! I look forward to a day filled with conversation with my children that are all spread far and wide across the country. Sometimes it seems that there is not enough time to fit it all in!

I also think of you, and all my friends old and new and hope it is a lovely day for you!

Another one of the early things I did was peruse one of my favorite boards on Pinterest. My Cottage Montage board, where I have saved a collection of images that transports me to my idealized world of perfect cottage beauty. I always feel lifted up from a saunter there, and thought you might enjoy a stroll (or a scroll) through too. You will find it here. It's my Mother's Day gift to you.

I'm missing all of my former shop girl friends and visiting ladies, and our lively conversations. And appreciating my newbie gals, already lovely new friends. Appreciating all of you who stop by here now and then and leave a delightful word or two that makes my day. Looking forward to all that lies ahead.

 I hope it's a great day for you!

Many happy days ahead!
