My beautiful mom.
To be honest, every tablescape I create is a tribute to my mom. Robin and I talk often about how she would have reacted to this or that tablescape. She would have loved them all! My mom's favorite color was blue, and her tastes were quite traditional.
These roses were a gift from my husband.
I was so excited to see the sun joining my tablescape!
My mom always loved birds.
I added a cut glass dinner bell.
My mom was Italian and I still miss her spaghetti and meatballs. I have tried to make it as good as she did. I finally make decent meatballs.
This is my favorite photo of my mom.
I think the expression on my face says it all.
My favorite Mom story:
Typical of a lot of families back then, my father was the one in charge of spankings. When I was four or five, I must have done something REALLY bad, because my mom decided it couldn't wait until my father got home. She went to grab my wrist, and I did something I NEVER would have done to my dad. I ran. She chased me until I got to the dining room, where I made sure to keep the table between us. Then, she did something very Mom-like. She started to laugh. I instantly knew I was safe, and joined in. She never tried to spank me again and I tried really hard not to deserve one.
Thank you so much for visiting!
