Isn't She Lovely!

This is my favorite picture of my Mom.
She was 19 yrs old, the same year she was
married to my Dad. I love the hairstyles from
the early 50's!
There is a whole lot of art going on in
this family. Two daughters, one in Art and
one in fashion design and me into everything.
And we owe it all to my Mom. She tried everything
too and mastered many of them. She painted in
watercolors, sewed, gardened, decorated, and sculpted
among many other things. She loved to paint rooms
and re-arrange furniture. My husband remembers that
she even re-painted the inside of the closets with each
new scheme. Ok, so we share more than art! Maybe a
little craziness there too!
She has been gone 16 years and I love her and miss
her everyday. Happy Mother's Day Mom!

How touching a tribute to your Mom. My Mom was an early fifties girl too. She graduated HS in 1950 & I came along in late 51'. She has been gone now for 11 years.... I too miss her!
Happy Mother's Day!

Your mom was so beautiful! I love that era. I was 19 at the end of the '70s...we just didn't have the glamour then (well except for my Farrah Faucet hair)!

Wow, she was so beautiful! I love the pictures from that era too! The kids looked like adults, my dad looked older in highschool then he does now! LOL!!!
The guys with the slicked back hair, black framed glasses, and ties on!
I will be thinking about you this Mothers Day, it is so hard to lose someone so dear! My mother in law has been gone 5 yrs. now and I miss her like crazy everyday, she was my best friend!
Hugs to you,

Hi Karen ~ Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love yours!

Your mother is so pretty and sounds like she was a huge inspiration to you. I chuckled when I read what she did because she sounds a lot like my mother. I know you must miss her so.

Happy Mother's Day,

What a cute picture and a sweet tribute. Your mom wasn't that old when you lost her, was she? My mother has been gone a year now; we had a challenging relationship at best, but I still miss her.

I wish you a happy mother's day!

Hi Karen, your mother is lovely and I can see that you get her talent and also your girls. What a wonderful tribute to her. I can understand you missing her. My mother has been gone to heaven for nearly 8 years and I miss her everyday too.
Best wishes for a very special Mother's Day.
