I'm preparing a virtual Mother's Day Tea for me and my Mom, and using two of the sets that my late Great Aunt Kitty painted. My Mom was named Kathryn (Kitty) after our aunt, who was the sister of my Mom's mother, and I was named Catherine (spelled differently by my Dad), and then called Kitty, too. We're having some cinnamon and sugar roll-ups that Cissy and I made the other day.
This tablecloth was embroidered by Mom so very long ago. Isn't it beautiful?
Here is one of the trio sets that our Aunt Kitty painted.
This teapot was found by my Mom when she loved to go to thrift stores. She gave it to me several years ago.
I thought that I'd put a picture of me and my Mom, along with the sweet vase baby bootie that was a gift after I was born. The Goebel Madonna was a gift from my Dad gave me after I became a mom....so much nostalgia. The zinnias came from my garden. Aren't zinnias the most cheerful flowers? I planted a row of them along my driveway in the back, for a happy nod when I come home.
Cissy worked hard on these roll-ups, which are heavenly little treats, filled with cream cheese. She used a serrated knife and cut all the crusts by herself, while I rolled out the bread with a rolling pin. We always have fun chatting away while working together on our baking project.
Happy Mother's day to ALL WOMEN who love and care for others, whether they be people, or pets!
Thank you for your visit! xo
