Better late than never!

I'm a bad, awful, terrible daughter... I just got these very belated gifts for my mom for mother's day and her birthday to her. I could throw out a bunch of excuses right now but let's just get to the goods instead!
First off is something I made:

These are pot holders I made from the fabric Jenn sent awhile back. It is a Michael Miller fabric with retro style s & p shakers on it (click on image to enlarge it). The woman-my mom, needed some good pot holders... All she had were these wimpy paper thin ones that you had to use 3 of them together and that still was living on the edge of third degree burns. I made these nice and thick but admitly didn't try them out because I didn't want to get them dirty! Hopefully I haven't set my mom up with a disaster!

These I bought:

They are handmade cards by Mary Ann. Aren't they cute? It was hard to not keep them for myself! I love how each card is a little bit different but the same... very clever!

i have got so much stuff to put up for you all to see ... geez...just need the time!

Wow, You need to do the Blog Tour Of Homes!! It's Friday. By the way, I came here via Surcie, and am in love with this blog!! I desperatey want to be rockabilly, but am afraid I am not pulling it off like I should. =) My kitchen is very similar to yours, but instead of vintage roosters, it's vintage cherries. FUN STUFF! I even have a red microwave. And yes, I know, I know....your house is cuter than mine. Have a happy day! PS...I'm adding you to my blogroll. Hope that's ok!

Mellie, I would LOVE,LOVE them anytime I got them!!! They are sooo cute and well made, and I might add, much more cushy than the ones I had. I have used them, but I try very carefully not to let them get dirty, and I haven't gotten burnt using them individually!!! And Danny, well he is stuck using his OVGLOVE!!! I'm not taking any chances with him ruining my new beauties!!!! You are such a precious daughter and I LOVE you sooooooo much!!!!!! Thank you again. LOVE, MOM

MOM said...

They loved all my gifts and want you to be their daughter!!! NEVER, you are way too cool for those girls, I tell them!!!!!! LOVE you bunches and bunches, Mom
