THIS JUST IN...Plus Wednesdays With My Mom

Just in the Shop, that is.

BUT FIRST, Wednesdays with my mom:

So sweet...Mom with the first three kiddos (above).

And below, three brand new dolly-babies for Christmas!

And I thought I'd throw this beautiful pic of my dad in just because. He was such a kind and gentle person.
On this day last week, we went to Michael's. My mom loves looking at all the silk flowers every time we go.
So we brought some yellow mums home with us.
Next, we ran to Costco to pick up some supplies that Mom's caregiver, Sam, asked me to get. Notice the delicious Berry Smoothie from Costco. Who can pass those up??? Not me!
Also (above) my mom got the biggest kick out of the new Stamping magazine I picked up while we were at Michael's. It really surprised me how much she enjoyed looking through it.
Below, the yellow mums next to a picture of my mom and dad.
Next, a couple of my latest creations.

These silly hangers cost me $3.00 each at the Scrapbooking store, so I added $2.00 over the price of my last Bingo Halloween Card. : ( Sorry.


Hope you're having a good Wednesday

Oh, the dolly picture is just the cutest! You have such a treasure trove of family pictures-that's great! There are big gaps in my picture history, I think cause my Dad took a lot of slides and he pitched them some years before his death. Wish I had those now! A trip to Michael's-I'm sure your Mom had a fun excursion with you. The mums are pretty there. Love all of your new Halloween art. xoxo

The new stuff in your shop is super cute! I'm getting excited for Halloween. And I love the pics of the kids with Gmother, and the one of Gfather. I clicked on it to make it bigger, and asked Miles if he knew who it was, and he said "Grandpa Allison"! I always thought my dad looked just like him!

Mimi Sue said...

You do have the best pictures. Love the one with the dollies. Your sister looks exactly like my older cousin, Betty. I think they have the same dress on and definitely the same hair do. Probably about 1955 or so. Love all your Halloween cuteness. Mimi

Everything is beautiful. You are so talented and creative!

Lovely, creative projects and I enjoy hearing about the trips you and your mom take together. So happy to hear she enjoyed the magazine. Great photos you shared to. Those dolly photos are the cutest.

Yep. Your dad was a looker too! Great genetic pooling! Man! My favorite shot? The dolly shot. Tooooooo cuuuuuuute!

Richella said...

Your creations really are adorable. I mean, really. You must be so very, very good with your hands.

Jacqueline Jaggers said...

Ah, what a tender fun time with your mama. Some of the fun things my mom and I did was sing in the car, pick weeds barefoot, laugh about nothing and everything and we always had a race to see who could clean the house fastest. What a treasured day for you.
