Mother's Day

 
What a glorious day - the girls and their families came for brunch - we had lots of food and lots of fun . . .

My great aunt's breakfast dishes - perfect for a brunch . . .

Lovely fork handles . . .

Scones and homemade raspberry jam - I didn't think to take photos of the fruit salad and breakfast casseroles - until we had eaten them all up.  Believe me - they were delicious!

A pretty bouquet from our youngest daughter's family . . . bright, just like our day . . .

Alstroemeria close up . . .



I've been collecting milk glass lately - this little basket was from Jahn's family . . . isn't it the cutest little thing?

Close up of the ruffled rim - I love that clear glass on the edge . . .

From Don - a milk glass cheese dome . ..

Close up of the roses . . .


A wonderful stone for my garden - from Ben's family - Ben picked it out.  I have just the spot for it in the garden, right next to a fairy. . .

And Ben picked out this plant stake - the ball glows in the dark . . .


There is a metal ladybug on top of the ball . . .

Our son and daughter-in-law sent this darling Fimo Clay quilt pin - you can judge the size by the safety pin it is hanging from - the pin is about 1 1/4" long.  This is the cleverest thing!!!  Don't you wish you had one?

After brunch we played in the yard and did some planting - that's for the next post - be back soon.

What a lucky Mom you are! I'm now craving scones and raspberry jam! Love that milk glass cheese dome (I would even hide a scone under there now and then.) Your day sounded perfect Jo! ~Lili
