Monday's Treasures and Mother's Day Gifts

Mother's Day was fabulous. We went to our middle son's house for lunch. He cooked burgers and corn on the cob on the grill. Our Grandon Connor will be three on Thursday, so we decided to celebrate it yesterday, since we would all be together anyway. He had a birthday cake with Woody from Toy Story on it. I think he enjoyed licking the icing off of the candles better than blowing them out. Here, he was trying to dip the candle back in for more icing and dad had to stop him. Come on, it is his cake, is there no double dipping on your own cake?
Mother's Day was awesome. My kids showered me with gifts. I can always count on my boys for flowers. It's so perfect that Mother's Day comes when we are ready to plant!
Thanks sweet boys ( and your wives, too)!
My Mom was so sweet to give me flowers as well. Look at these beautiful hanging baskets.
A couple of weeks ago, for no reason at all, she bought this really cool blue tool box full of pansies. I am so lucky to have such an amazing mom!
My one and only daughter (Jenni from Who Makes Up This Craft) always comes up with something really special. I love this adorable purse my daughter made.
And look at what else she made! A curled book page wreath. I was so surprised.
All of those pages she cut and rolled. Is that the sweetest mother's day gift? I know how much work she puts in everything she makes. Thanks so much Jen, I love you!
Now, on to Monday's Treasures!!!
This week I brought out all of the milk glass that came from my father-in-law's attic. I remember having milk glass around when I was little. It was pretty then, but I think it is even prettier now. Isn't it great when things come back in style. All of the younger crowd think they have found something new and wonderful. Getting older is so great! I had never seen milk glass candlesticks like these. So unique and simple. A pretty plate, a candy dish and a sugar bowl.Somewhere there must be a creamer to go with it.
Lots of pretty bud vases.
What a pretty serving bowl. A variety of very pretty bowls.
I love the fluted edge on this one.
Unfortunately, this cake plate came out of the box like this.I really do love it and my sweet hubby is gonna help me glue it back together. I won't be able to put cake on it, but what a pretty display piece it will make. Many of these pieces will be in my booth at Sentimental Journey or Lone Elm Antiques. If you are around Kansas City, be sure to stop by.

  1. Hi Mothers day did sound fabulous! Sorry about your cake stand, but I am betting it will look good after a little glue surgery. Great pieces. Thanks for sharing at my newbie party.

  2. What beautiful milk glass. The little hobnail compot dish caught my eye, I have one like it. Sorry about your cake stand. But I agree it will make a cute display piece. Thanks for sharing your loveliness. Karie

  3. Oh, I just love milk glass. I'm sorry about your cake plate. I guess it a good thing it didn't happen while you were using it to serve!

  4. sounds like your Mom's Day was perfect. Fun to know someone else that has a daughter old enough to blog. So many bloggers are in the 20's or 30's and I feel like the Old Gray Mare sometimes. :) I visited Jenni's fun blog and left a little love for her there.
    Have a good one.
