Mother's Day Fun

We are enjoying our first day of sunshine this week.  It is absolutely perfect outside.  The sun is shining, there is a cool breeze and I have the windows open to let in all the sunshiny goodness.  Have to enjoy these blissful days while they last.  Sunday will begin another round of clouds and rain.  Lasting through midweek.  So for now I am letting the sunshine and breeze in and spending lots of time soaking it in.  New England springs are unpredictable.  They can be as varied as the colors of the leaves in fall.

Mother's Day was spent doing a lot of relaxing.  I was blessed and spoiled.  Hubby and the kids were wonderful.  There were great gifts and fun times together.  One of my favorite things was no cooking.  We went out to lunch and dinner.  Dinner was at IHOP because we always love breakfast suppers.  The kids ate some very sweet filled french toast and crepes.  They seemed more like dessert.  I hope that you all had a wonderful day with your families.

On Saturday we went to visit my mom.  She is one of the few people that I know that truly likes anything I make.  I saw these cute bags on Susie Harris's blog.  I knew my mom would love them and decided to make one for her.  
I love the ruffles.
Flower power-a little blurry
Isn't it sweet?
Very Shabby Chic

Thanks to Susie for always sharing her beautiful ideas with us.
