It's the 2nd day of the week... I smell Friday, it's right around the corner
So every year for the last several years I have gotten my mama a white carnation corsage for
It's said that on Mother's Day, and you are a mother you are supposed to wear a red carnation if your mother is still living and a white one if she's gone to fly with the Angels.
Well my grandmother passed away almost 17 years ago.. since then, on Mother's Day my mama gets a sweet little white carnation. I feel like it not only a way for me to honor my mama, but my Grandma as well.
As simple as it may be... it's always a challenge for me, see she has EVERY single one I've given her.
She has a framed picture of my grandmother on her wall, and after Mother's Day, she tacks the courage on it.
I try to make sure they are a little different each year.
I normal order one for her and have it shipped... I made one a few years ago, and decided to give it a try again this year.
So it came out completely different then the picture in my head.
I wasn't sure about the flower, or the red thingys.... but made it work.
I seen this sweet little fabric flower in the craft store and it looked like a carnation to me (kinda) but it was so plain but didn't know what I wanted to do with it. I was going to add little flowers and ribbon, but couldn't think of a color that I liked, or haven't already done for her.
So I called my mom and said
'mom, don't think about it.. what color do you think about when I say Oliver'
she obviously said
Why red, I don't know... but it's what she got.
It's being shipped to her tomorrow.. and I hope she loves it.
Thanks for stopping by...
Peace and Love
