This table was my mother's. She had exquisite taste. Smooth on the top and hand carved on the front. And on it I have a few of my favorite things.
Pictures of my mom, dad, and brother.
The three Wise Men - again they were my mother's.
Pictures of my kids when they were younger, my family now, my brother's and mine baby pictures, and my grandmother as a young girl. My mom made those praying hands in ceramic class - SHE had the craft talent in the family.
Now I was blessed a couple of times since I've been blogging. I just won Molly's give away and she sent me these four glasses with snowmen on the bottom and one smaller glass - a reindeer - for Andy. Please check out her blog - you'll enjoy it. Molly (click here) is a wonderful lady.
She hand painted these. So thank you very much Molly.
She also send a night light - isn't it nice? I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you so much.
I also won awhile ago - for guessing how many hinges were in a box - a gift from Barb (click here) so check out her site too. She wrote and asked me what I would like and one of them was some of her miscellaneous remnants of her craft items. They were wonderful. A lot of nice scrape booking items, flowers, dolie, etc. So thank you too Jean. I always put them with my things before I took a picture.
Happy Birthday Harry Chapin - Cats in the Cradle - I think that was one of the most moving songs ever.
