MOM

She gave me my passion for gardening. She was with me when I bought my first antique, and she was junking right alongside me at my first flea market. She taught me how to sew and how to drive. She could make potato pancakes and dumplings like no one else. She was a quiet woman who could surprise you with her wit. I lost my Mom on February 12th, two days after her 90th birthday. My sister and I were at her side, each holding one of her hands, Thank You God. Rest in peace sweet Mama.

Hello Carol, I've been enjoying the photo you posted of your darling Christmas girls in the box since last year. It inspired me to begin collecting similar figurines. I just bought 4 online last night and today. I then began searching for your photo again and came across this blog about your mother. I am so very sorry for your loss, I know it's been several months, but I too know how hard it is to lose your parents. Your photo of you mother is precious and it looks and sounds like she had such a wonderful spirit. It also sounds like you've learned so much from her. What a gift to have her for so long, 90 years is fantastic! I too lost my father this summer after his 90th bday. I can imagine that this holiday season will be fraught with memories of her, please take solace in them and enjoy your treasured vintage items, which I can only imagine bring you closer to your mother each time you look at them.
I hope you don't mind but I took a screehshot and it's on my home computer desktop. That way even if I unable to collect such darling figurines, I can enjoy them each time I look at my computer.
Thank you very much for your blog and your spirit and your creativity.
Much fondness and Happy thoughts... Judy

I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about http://toysuae.com/, their Beach Toys In Dubai are very effective.

Did you realize there's a 12 word phrase you can tell your man... that will induce deep emotions of love and instinctual attraction to you deep within his heart?

Because deep inside these 12 words is a "secret signal" that fuels a man's impulse to love, please and care for you with his entire heart...

12 Words Will Trigger A Man's Love Response

This impulse is so built-in to a man's brain that it will drive him to try harder than ever before to do his best at looking after your relationship.

In fact, fueling this mighty impulse is so important to achieving the best ever relationship with your man that the second you send your man one of these "Secret Signals"...

...You will instantly find him open his soul and heart to you in a way he's never expressed before and he'll recognize you as the only woman in the universe who has ever truly attracted him.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!
