Wednesdays With My Mom...a little late.

A little late because real life happens. In a perfect world all we would do is blog and create. : )

While my parents were engaged they bought this new automobile so they could travel from California to Iowa, during their honeymoon, to meet part of my Dad's side of the family.
I got extremely brave and colored my Mom's hair this past week. She looks pleased. : )

Here's the little tree I brought over to my Mom's place and decorated on another night last week.


I couldn't believe I found rust ornaments. Rust is one of my Mom's favorite colors.






Hope you're enjoying the holidays with the ones you love!

You did a great job with her hair ...she looks beautiful. You should of suggested pink for her and entered her in the contest...just kidding. The ornaments are gorgeous too. I went with that color and silver this year.

You did a fabulous job on your mothers' hair. Looks very natural and beautiful! LOVE the tree you put up and the ornaments are lovely.

One of the main reasons I visit your blog is for "Wednesday's with My Mom" (and your decorating of course). Good for you for being with your mom and doing special things that she enjoys. My mom lives thousands of miles away...what I wouldn't give to share more time with her.
Kudos and Merry Christmas.

And the tree is gorgeous, too. I hope you have a great Sunday!

Precious mom, precious memories you have been given to treasure. Mom's hair came out wonderful. It's rust-like color matches her chair and her tree ornaments. So she must be triple pleased :)

Merry CHRISTmas!

Blessings,

The times that you are sharing with your Mom now are going to provide you with a lifetime of memories and you are making her later years very special as well. As an earlier commenter said, I visit your blog for these posts and the decorating as well :) You did a great job on her hair by the way :)

You are such a dear to take such loving care of your mother. I lost my mother last year and miss her terribly and wish she was still here with us. It warms my heart to see how much you love and care for your mom.

Well, I think my love for your cute-as-a-button mom is quite clear, but now I'm in love with her cute-as-a-button tree! Good job! She must love it.

I just heard on hgtv today that copper and teal were replacing blue and brown...so I guess your mama's rust is now copper and very stylish!
