It's Mother's Day. I collect Mother's things. Or things for Mother. Or something like that. I started picking up the sweet old Mother plaques to sell. But they sat in the booth and never sold and that made me sad. I brought them home and fell in love with the sweet words and sentiments. So, another collection was born. I've never really seen any other Mother's day collections, but I'm sure they are out there.
Mom, Mother - what do you call yours? Mine was Mama when I was little. Then Mumsie about the time I started Junior High. She's still MY Mumsie. I never liked "MOM". But, guess what I am to The Bean - MOM. I love it, of course. :D
I added in some of my favorite babies, because you can't really be a Mother without a baby of some sort. The set on the right is one of my favorite things - they belonged to my Great Grandma. They are salt and pepper shakers. Can you imagine using them???? Not me!
I bought a big scrapbook full of vintage cards - all from Georgie to her Mother over all the years. There are cards from every single holiday and they all say Mother on the cover - if it's a holiday like Christmas, Georgie penciled in "and Dad" under MOTHER. Georgie really liked her Mom. I get that.
I hope you all have a wonderful Sunday.
Happy Mother's Day.
