Wednesdays With My Mom and Pumpkins for Sale

As you know, last week was a rough one. Things seem to be going a little smoother this week, but I'm still anxious for our appointment with the Neurologist later this week.
My mom, dad and precious little June (baby no. 3). Can you even get over the adorable dolly-baby pic of her below? So sweet!!
So these photos, below, are from two weeks ago. On that Wednesday, we stopped at Walmart and picked up several things my mom had been wanting, plus a hair coloring kit. It was time and she was such a good sport.
Watching TV while we waited for the color to set in.
I grabbed a quick pic as we were heading out the door that night. Sweet Mamma!
So this is what I've been busy with for stress relief this week. Thanks for the suggestion, PJ. : )

If you remember, I made these last year after first seeing them on the 'Sunshine in my soul' blog and Rachel's 'Made with love and lots of glue' blog.





So if you would like to add one of these to your Fall Decor', they're sitting over in my Shop for $10.00 each. HAPPY 2ND DAY OF FALL. : ) Oh my goodness...I had no idea these would go so fast. I will be making more in the coming days. Thanks so much to those who ordered! : )

I'm soooooo glad you and Wilma are having a better week! Love that you color her hair for her! She's just so sweet! And the vintage photos, as always, are filled with charm!

You're welcome for the suggestion...and I bought three of the five this morning....THAT was not my intention! They're just my earthy color palette and so textural, I couldn't resist.

Whatever will you make me spend my money on next?! ;)

Your Mother looks good. I love having my hair done. It just relaxes me having someone fix it. I know your Mom probably feels the same way.

I just love your pumpkins, they look soo elegant.

I'm so glad you are keeping yourself "busy." The pumpkins are wonderful-We must think alike, I have been sewing pumpkins for weeks! Yours are so cute!

I just want you to know that I am keeping you, your mom and your family in my prayers. My dad lives with me and we have had some touch and go moments with his health...It can really wear on a person so make sure you take really good care of yourself sweetie.

Love,

Glad things are going better. Nice you can keep your Mom looking so good. I am grateful for a sister who lives near my Mom who keeps her hair cut, permed, and curled.

Looks like you are already for fall - even if it is still summer weather.

The baby bonnet is priceless. Makes me wish I had one for Hannah when she was younger!

Small House said...

OH DEAR...I just read about your mom. That just breaks my heart. It's so-so hard to care for a parent. It's hard to see the people you love, who have lived such a good life and worked hard struggle.

Darling pumpkins--and of course I adore the pictures and memories you're making with Grandmother now. Love you & hope things work out! Hang in there :)

My moms name was June. The other day I found a tiny little cup and saucer in Goodwill with June on it. I'll be posting it in October sometime. We have much in common, my mom battled dementia just like yours. I love the picture of you coloring her hair. It made we want to cry, it's so intimate and sweet. God bless both of you.

Mimi Sue said...

That baby in that bonnet is adorable. And your mom looks pretty spiffy in her new hair color. Loved those pumpkins last year, love them still. Mimi

Your family is in our thoughts and prayers! And I love the pumpkins you made. I remember seeing them on your blog last year! Super cute :)

Molly @ A Bit O' Shine said...

New haircolor is always a good pick-me-up. Love that second photo from the top! Too cute!

And your pumpkins are so cute! Obviously...since they disappeared out of your shop before I even got there!

Brenda said...

OK, so don't laugh at me but after looking at your Mom's "ready to go, hurry up and take the pic" picture I thought to myself,"I would have NEVER thought that she dyed her hair."and then it hit me that I'm forty three and my hair is half gray, LOL!!! Nothing beats a good hair day! hahaha!
