Happy Birthday Mom

Moms Birthday was January 9th. She is no longer with us but my sister Paula and I always find a way to celebrate Moms Birthday.
This year we are going to have a contest on our blogs. Anyone who comments has a chance to win. Mom loved contests so this is a great way to honor her.
I'm giving away a pillow made of the fabric in the picture above. Mom also lived home made gifts and this pillow is something I would have made for her Birthday.
Mom would have put this pillow on her bed that always smelled fresh and clean like talcum powder and sunshine. I think Mom hung the bedding out on the cloths line even in the winter.

Happy Birthday Mom. We love & miss you!
Be sure to comment on this blog post and on Paula's @
for a chance to win our prizes.

A wonderful tribute to your mother. I love the way you and your sisters pay tribute to her each year.

Please enter me in the giveaway. I would love that pillow to come to live at my house. It's going to be beautiful.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

I always say that nothing beats homemade and made from the heart! You can not buy things that can ever compare to homemade. I am so glad that I am able to start weaving. My hubbies family have loved my kitchen towels that I wove for them and this year I let them pick out their own colors and I am weaving them. When I get to a year of blogging I will be giving away a nice gift too. You take care and Happy New Year to you!

What a nice memory for your Mom. My Gram passed this year and I made several Christmas gifts for my Mom and sisters to honor her memory.
