Something pretty for Mom

I picked up a few goods over the weekend and I just love the way they all look together. Three of these old plates , a beautiful dresser scarf with pretty crochet trim and an old card that says Reward of Merit.I was thinking what a lovely Mother's Day Gift this would make all simply tied with an old piece of seam binding ribbon.


And I promised a picture of my living room , here is one side of it .And on the other side is the tv and my computer desk. Over the window I tacked up a old white belgin linen tablecloth.Five kids and white couches, heck ya! No I am not crazy , the slipcovers can come off and be washed and bleached if needed.
And on my computer desk on the other side of the room ,I added a old floppy flower and seam binding ribbon to a favorite old lampshade of mine.
And a few treasures to be insired by ...
Hope you'll also join me for a fun day of creating ! You can read more about it in the post below!
Also wanted to tell you how much I appreciate your comments and friendship , each one is special to me ,That you would take the time out of your day to stop by and say hello!

Hi Andrea , I love the white slipcovers , my plan is to sew some this summer for our living room. I love the idea of being able to wash them whenever.

Have a blessed Mothers day

Andrea - those are lovely gifts. She will love them! I noticed that some of your photos are cropped. I can help you with your blog spacing if you want. You can move your sidebars out and make room for larger pictures. Just if you want. Everything looks great. Add me to your show what you create blog party, alrighty? Thanks!
