Happy Mother's Day

Wishing a Happy Mother's Day to three wonderful women in my life. My grandmother Lucy who, while in her eighties, still provides me with inspiration. She made clothes for me when I was little, and used the scraps of fabric to make matching clothes for my dolls. She used to make the best ever pickled beets and country ham.





My maternal grandmother, Bird, just turned ninety-five years young. It was in her home, as a child, that I came to love the sound of rain falling on a tin roof. I have watched her, countless times, make biscuits by simply placing milk and lard into flour.....no measuring. And then kneading out a perfect dough. That still amazes me.



And let us not forget my own dear mom, The Babs. Provider of love and support while growing up and still a mere phone call away when I need her.




I love you mom.


She is really going to love me for posting this picture :)

  24. Great post to 3 sweet moms!

    P.S. I love pickled beets!! yum
    I gave my 19 month old granddaughter one last weekend and my daughter was amazed that she ate it. I keep telling her how good they are! They get a bum rap I think. People won't taste them and discover how delicious they are!
