For years I did not decorate anything accept the two big holidays - Christmas (I have 4 trees) and Halloween. I LOVE vintage Halloween decorations. Since Doodlebug has arrived, I find myself decorating for all the holidays and I am sure we are only days away from me making up holidays - such as "back to school day" - damn her! Like I needed another reason to shop.
Easter was no exception - as usually every nook & cranny (the name of her old store) was decorated. She left no egg unturned. My mom has always been really good at creating little scenes, or scape's or whatever you want to call them. Her kitchen window this Easter may have been one of my favorites.
My mom found the darling sign on a primitive sign website similar to this Sign Shop ... Well let me be clear. My younger sister bought it off the website. Oh my mom paid, because that is her job :) But my mom calls the Internet, the interstate and facebook, spacebook. In my heart I think she really knows their real names, but one can not be sure.
This little guy, I think my mom painted a 100 years ago ... if not we have the pair since I was a little bitty person.
All the girls in my family are creative in one way or another. Each has their own their "talent" and we got that from my Mom. I can always call her and say here is what I am thinking, how do we do that ... and she normally has the answer! She may claim to be getting old, or only have one kidney left - but I will keep her on her toes for at least a few more years to come!
