Let’s Dish ~ Mother’s Day…

I was able to use my latest purchases that I showed you a few weeks ago to create a table scape.

I ended up using and changing out 3 different chargers. The bright green, bright purple and pale purple.

My mother is an old world mother. One who sacrifices everything for her husband and children. She has never driven a car to this day and she is 89. She was a stay at home mom her whole married life. Her love was expressed by sharing her faith in God, providing good meals, sewing clothing for her daughters, and putting herself last when it came to needing something new. My mom bore 9 children. Her first daughter died at 2 years old in Iran. Eight of us are all still alive and well in Southern California, Texas, and Washington. Here’s my mom at Katie and Andrew’s wedding in March.

This photo was taken by Jeremy Leffel, I love it! That’s my dear dad behind her making sure she kept steady since she is using a walker these days. It would be nice to serve my mom a meal at this table but traveling is getting very hard for her. She’ll be celebrating at my niece’s home with some of my sister’s families.

I used flowering rosemary and another ground cover in the vases.

I am really enjoying this color combination. I’m still on the lookout for a few more pieces.

I talked to my mom on the phone today and told her I didn’t buy a card, yet. I’m going to have to do something special when I see her the weekend after Mother’s Day weekend.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers who visit here…

I’m linking up with Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish Mother’s Day edition and with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
