Memories

Mother's day is coming soon. A time to reflect on my past. My mom has been gone for many years but memories are vivid.
As most of my followers know I come from a large family of ten. I wish that kids today could live in the sweet innocent world we lived.  Our street was a deadend street,our play ground. We didn't have to fear of being abducted,shot at, or molested. So sweet and fun times with our friends.

Our toys were cardboard boxes for sliding down the hill in winter. Chalk to play hop scotch. We didn't have electronics we entertained ourself playing games ,puzzles ,listening to the radio and buckled on ice  skates and roller skates.
I chose pink as it is dainty and lady like. My mom didn't have fancy dishes so to honor her I  used some of my prettiest dishes.

A little china basket with pink roses
I love the handle on the teapot. I like tea for lunch. and this one is quite large. More pink roses.My mom was a great cook and she even had a coloum in our local paper. She loved to do little crafts and had a white Christmas tree every holiday with her hand made crafts.                                               Our teacups with more roses. She was a mentor to all the kids on our block. There when someone needed a place to hang out. Such a happy time.  Too bad it will never be like that again.

Napkins are embroidered flowers vintage. No alchol in our house so crystal lite. yum                                                                         
Cookies with whipped cream for the sweet tooth.   The little bear my mom  made of felt. She had a hugh collection of bears. Little chocolate eggs and behind the bear my Dresden sugar bowl. 


Finger food on side table. I try to eat healthy.
It's a cool day so a hot dish of chicken veggie soup will be tasty.
I'm a mom so I think I will sit and eat some lunch. I miss you mom you are here in spirit.

A little fruit and cheese.

I agree that your accent on pink is dainty and lady-like, and you have included such lovely touches. Your cheerful enthusiasm is an inspiration. I too still miss my Mom so much.

Your Mom would love your table with the pretty china. Your darling bear she made it so sweet and show all her talents. I love all your great memories of childhood. I know you love dogs and thought you might enjoy viewing photos of our new family collie posted this week. Take care of your dogs!
