I should tell you...I've always loved flowers in a Mason jar, but this was precious! I love the way that ribbon and button dress it up. She added that sweet mini clothespin and made the card attached with scrapbooking software. Isn't that a great idea!? = )
Then...this! I absolutely LOVE it! She stained the wood plaques and then Mod-Podged pink paper to the front which she distressed. She added a slight antique coloring to the photos and added a beautiful quote (chosen by Brennan), then embellished with ribbon and buttons. The photos she chose are some of my favorites. This is truly an absolute treasure!
I've always told you Breezy and her family were talented and creative. Over the years, I've seen her create some wonderful and very special gifts for Brennan. It was especially meaningful to receive something so special for my own! Apparently, her inspiration for both gifts came from things she has seen in blogworld. Yes, she too has been bitten by the blogging bug! (I love it!) She has been having lots of fun exploring & getting all sorts of ideas. = )
Oh and lest I forget! Here is the beautiful quote:
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. ~Washington Irving.
Hope you had a wonderful and special Mother's Day, too!
