Happy Mother's Day!

My darling family helped me to have such a fun Mother's Day. They all made me beautiful cards with such heartfelt messages inside, and that's all I really ever want. I did also get a beautiful hanging flower basket, which I loved.
     Cute Hannah has fallen in love with the idea of Shabby Chic. I have never been great at it, and it's never really been in my style of decor, but hey, I am always willing to learn! She made me this card from various cut-out pics from magazines and I think it is so clever and sassy...totally Hannah!
We had my mom over for dinner and Neal made a fabulous lime tilapia (Paula Dean recipe, very wonderful). Han wanted to try to do the table Shabby so I was game on and decided on the black and creme theme. She helped re-paint a flower arrangement I bought at my pal George's yard sale by painting the pot antique black. Very crafty little chick, that Hannah!
 Yesterday, I re-purposed a D.I. kitchen chair for Lucy's senior pics that I will post this week, and it is very Shabby and vintage-y looking, and it was my first attempt at it. I tea-dyed a white skirt and then tore it up and used it on the chair. Han and I also used it to decorate the chairs.
     I had some dollar store roses and I spray painted them creme colored and spritzed them with black to make them look weathered. I put them in a dollar store vase with tulle and a little ribbon, and it became a nice addition to the table. I used the faux
mercury glass candle holders, and the cute cards the girls made for the rest of the table.
    And here is a cute pic of the my 3 favorite girls! They make my life so wonderful, and I am so grateful for them.

      And I can't end Mother's Day without saying thank you to my own dear mother! She is a young 80 year old who is so fun to be around. Everyone loves her. This is a picture of my sister and my mother and I at Lucy's birthday dinner yesterday. Happy Mother's Day everyone!
