Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you.  I hope your day is blessed and you are spoiled by your families.

Here is one of the good ones…my mom.  I am blessed beyond measure by this woman.


For Mother’s Day I took her out to lunch this and then took her to Joann Fabrics to pick out fabric to redo a chair in her hallway.  Now of all the ways I am like my mother, creativity is not one of the traits she passed down to me.  Joann Fabrics is uncharted territory for my mom.  Which is hilarious since, for me, Joann Fabrics is pretty much like Norm walking into the bar on Cheers.

My mom got this chair on Craiglist.  She paid $7 for it.  She loved the shape and the rose carved embellishment.  She wasn’t crazy about the fabric and there was some dings and scratches in the wood.  So as a Mother’s Day gift I refabbed it for her.

A little Heirloom white spray paint, some new Waverly Fabric and a piped pillow and she is the perfect little sweetie for my mom’s entryway.

And in case you were wondering what I got for my Mother’s Day.  Hellllo baby!  I have no idea how to use it but am determined to learn.800px-Nikon_D3100
