Happy Mother’s Day!

Whether you are raising babies, teenagers, puppies, furry friends or grandchildren, we all know it takes a lot of love, patience, and hard work…

I have been blessed with fantastic children, who have become my best friends as adults, and they have given me 3 precious grandchildren… but this post today is all about my Mom…

My mother gave me the gift of creativity

She taught me the fun of sharing and giving

She showed me how to set beautiful tables and entertain with ease

She shared her love of beautiful things and gracious living

She encouraged me to be an artist

She would love that I have found a way to share her spirit in so many ways…

I must confess that these beautiful dishes are a gift I gave myself, in my mother’s honor, as she loved dinnerware…and loved having lots of different china patterns and using a variety of things on her table

I love how the pieces of this pattern mix and match

Bright colors, lively patterns

I decided to mix and match the flatware too, with Painted Forks

and green handled knives and spoons

My mom loved coffee and a glass of wine, and I will toast her on this special day~
