Happy Mother's Day ~ in Flowers




This is the only creative thing I've done for a week:


this was my sample for the kids

For Mother's Day, the students painted a water color floral arrangement. Ginny inked in their artwork lines, and we put them into a black 8" by 10" art mat.


Wednesday was Teacher Appreciation Day, and I was blessed with this pink miniature rosebush, a bouquet of peach Gerbera daisies, and this sweet orchid.


Lydia's church had a beautiful Ladies Tea today, her pastor's wife and the women of the church had made the church gorgeous, with borrowed teapots, cups and dishes, tea cozies, everything!! It was over the top, and a blessing to attend.






The floral arrangements with the lilies came from there today, they sold them at the end and we were happy to purchase.




When we came home, Larry had these roses waiting for me on the counter.



It's a garden in the kitchen! I love the blooms everywhere. Tomorrow, I'll be directing the Ladies Choir in the morning service, we're praising the Lord with our "joyful noise"!
I'm hoping you all have a wonderful Happy Mother's Day!

  8. Oh, how beautiful and it must smell amazing!!
    Are you an ART teacher. I am so jealous! I can't draw a thing and it really bugs me when it comes to my quilting. I have to drag my daughter into drawing my designs. UGH!

    Happy Mom's day to you! and BIG HUGS to you too!

  10. I stumbled on your blog and couldn't resist reading what you have to say. I was also a second grade teacher (my favorite grade out of all I taught!) who is now a quilter.
    The flowers are gorgeous. What great inspiration!
