Isn't She Beautiful?

I'm a little early with this post but this old Mama Bird is leaving the nest for a few days and she doesn't own a laptop so she can't stay in touch with the world while she is gone which is a good thing I think. :)

Happy Mother's Day Mom

Isn't she beautiful? She will be 85 in June. This was taken on her 21st birthday. Love the gardenia in her hair and that dress and those red nails.

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.

Mother Hen....Just wanted to be the first to wish you a HAPPY MOTHER'S day! Enjoy your time. My mother's day wish was to shop for antiques and such. So I will be shopping on Sat. and spending the day with my Mom on Sunday:0)

Oh how accurate your description of a mother is.

Was everyone really that cute back then? Everyone's mom is just darling! And that "saying" is so great! Love it.

My mom will be 85 in September and I have tons of pics of her like this, with the red nails, dark lipstick and a similar hair style.

Your sentiment is spot on. Although, my mother would make a second pie and hide it until company left.

I love your slide show!

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!

I just discovered your great blog through Pearl Maple! What a sweet tribute to "Mom". I lost my Mom four years ago and there's hardly a day that goes by that I don't have a thought or two about her. Have a terrific Mother's Day--my brood is making a brunch for me. I do believe I have "arrived"!

Your mother was lovely then, and I'm sure she is even more lovely now. I know you must each be a treasure for the other.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day.

What a beautiful picture of Millie. I love the gardenia in her hair. I have a pic of my mother with a lilac in her hair. I think it was the fashion in photos back then. Have a great weekend and special Mother's Day.
