Happy Mother's Day in Pink!

Happy Mother's Day to everyone! Welcome to Pink Saturday and endless ideas from Beverly's site http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ . I love all the pink and of course had to decorate/celebrate Mother's Day this weekend in Pink!
I finished the embroidery that spelled mother...made it into a pillow for my mother. Below I worked on a Mother's Day card as well for her.

Here is a picture of my mom at 18 going into Nurse's training and then her as a small girl on the right. She had 9 brothers and sisters! Wow!

Last thing I made was a small banner that spells 'mother'....

I hope you wonderful people have a glorious weekend!

Such a l♥vely post for Pink Saturday. This is the one day of the week when I get to visit some of the best blogs in cyberspace and indulge my passion for pink.

Happy Mother's Day. I wish you all the peace and joy that a day in celebration of motherhood can bring. You don't have to grow a baby in your womb to be a mother...all you have to do is to l♥ve a human being with compassion and tenderness.
