I am back!!! I have missed blogging and hearing from all of you. Thank you all for your prayers and concern during this difficult time. Thank you for the prayers that we would have a safe trip. Everything went as well as could be expected. My interview with the newspaper went fine. The article will be in the home section of the paper by the end of the week. The reporter took lots of pictures of the house, barn, and chicken coop. I hope the article turns out okay.
I thought this would be a good time to share pictures of some of the gifts that my mom has made for me over the years. This is just a few of the things she has made. I will share more pictures at a later time. I hope you enjoy looking at everything.
#1 Rag Rug
My mom made this rag rug for me about 10 years ago. I kept telling her I wanted one, so she made one for me for Christmas. I think she did a great job!
My mom and dad made this shelf for me for my birthday several years ago. The hooks are old spoons with the top of the spoon removed. They then bent the spoon to make hooks out of them.
#3 Small Cabinet
My mom and dad made this small cabinet for me for my birthday. I have it displayed on top of the kitchen cabinets. It is perfect to display little kitchen items. I love that they painted the inside blue. It makes it so much more interesting.
My mom made these samplers for me a few years ago for Christmas. She also painted the frames that she put them in.
#5 Place mats
My mom made three identical place mats for me about a month ago. I put them on the island in the basement kitchen.
#6 Table Runner
My mom made this table runner for me for Christmas this year. After Christmas, I asked her to make the place mats above.
My mom made this pillow for me this Christmas to match a hook rug that I have.
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the items my mom has made me over the years. As I said before, this is just a small sampling of the items. I will post more pictures at a later time. Now, do you see why I keep telling her she needs to sell her items. I really think people will buy them. I feel so blessed to have a mom who can make these types of things, and one who will take the time to make them.
Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate your visit and all the wonderful comments you leave me. I hope that you are having a wonderful evening, and that you are spending it with someone you love. Always remember how special you are, and live every day like it were your last.
