My mom

Good morning -

My mom and her morning glories
at her old house.
Today I want to brag about my Mom a little.  My mom is originally from Germany and speaks fluent German.  She is also the best cook ever (didn't get that from her).  She is also a crafter (did get that from her).  She sews (not me), crochets (I can a little), knits (I can't) and makes beautiful flower arrangements (yeah, I can do that too).  She did my DD's flowers for her wedding and several other people's also.  She also does other miscellaneous crafting. 

She has not figured the blogging thing out yet, although she just recently got a computer and isn't puter savy YET.  I am going to try to feature her creations when she has something she wants to show off.  I hope you all don't mind...I didn't think you would.  Hahahaha 

She is currently into making wreaths.  At her old house (where I spent most of my teenage years) she had grapevines growing along her house.  She recently had to move to another house and when she left she took alot of the grapevines with her and now forms them into wreaths.  She has made regular round ones, some heart shaped ones and even square ones.  I got a beautiful wreath last summer from her and just have not made anything with it yet (probably should get on that).  Since the Easter season is upon us, she made an Easter wreath.  She also likes my favorite store (The Dollar Tree) and there she bought the plastic eggs.  She has also accumulated many silk flowers over the years from making flower arrangements.  She made this wreath using up her stash...(like daughter, like mother, hehehehe).  With just a bit of hot glue a wreath is born.
I love the Easter colors so bright and cheery.
I hope you enjoyed visiting my mom's creations.  Leave a comment and tell her what you think of her wreath.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
