my Mom, Jean

Happy Mother's day to each of you who mother those around you. You know you do it even if you can't help yourself. The above painting was painted by my Mom, "Jean." Most people call her "Jeanie" or as my Dad likes to call her "Shug." (short for sugar)
Well - bring out a beautiful tablecloth and bring in some flowers. Prepare a sweet day for Mom to remember.

Winner of the friday flowers cards goes to "The Buzz" - (random number 8) not including myself in the contest. Congrats to "the buzz"

Rene,
My Mom did it all unknowingly - she tells me with raising seven she just kept us busy all the time.

Yes a very talented family. I am the oldest of eight, so we know our Mom's did not have much time for pleasures! Happy Mothers Day Patricia.

I love the flowers. I have a pot of flowers my GranMa painted, hanging by hollyhock by my Mother. there is a spot awaiting a pot or something from Me, at some point. I hope you and your darling daughter will add a bouquet to hold court with your Mum. Gaye

Happy Mother's Day PVE and to your momma too! The apple does not fall far in talent in your family does it! Hope your day is special.

A wonderful painting Patricia! Looks like we both grew up with artists in the household! (similar post today)

You also happened to be lucky #14 and have won the Grace Kelly CD from my Giveaway earlier in the week.
I have been swinging around the house to Frank, Dean, Nat, Ella and the rest all week. It is a great CD!

Could you email me your mailing details?

Congrats again :)
