1 June 1921

1 June, 1921
This lovely and wonderful  Lady is My Mother.
Today is her Birthday.
.
 No matter how old I get, I still miss my Mother.

I wrote a small tribute about my Mum several years ago.
One sweet note is her Great granddaughter Mia was born one day before her birthday.
I wish Mia would have been born on the same day. That would have been the best gift.
I know Mum would have loved that.

cake. . . parsnip
music. . . Hello Dolly,  Carol Channing.
Mum's name was Dolly so this song is very close to my heart and hers.
Plus we loved Carol Channing.

  4. *hugs* You have my heart, sweet pea. We were hoping that Baby Girl Matrix would have been born on Aug, 13th, my Mom's birthday, but she was a bit early (Aug. 8th), so she carries my Mother's name, so we're all smiles. xoxooxox

  8. Your mother was such a beautiful lady. The picture is like from a movie.
    Loved your tribute for her. It's sad her recipe was destroyed in fire. Things may be gone but memories for loved ones are forever.

  10. Hi Parsnip, my mom was also born in 1921, just a few weeks after your mother. She's been gone now for 25 years and like you I still miss her. You asked on my blog about where I got the oil cloth and I really can't remember. It's a little store in a kind of urban renewal area. I'll have to ask Kath and let you know. It's a darling store. I know you'd love it.

      Oh I am sure I can find the oil cloth... But your design is just so pretty.
      I bet that was down in the barrio re developed area ?

  12. My daughter shares a birthday with my maternal grandmother who was very dear to me. Sometimes I catch a little glimpse of grandma in her, too.
