For Mom

I've noticed that my mom is reading quite a bit more now that she's got time.  Reading has always been a "have to do" for me.  I'm not happy if I don't read.  I started reading at breakfast when I was quite small and there Mom would be at the table - together we would be, but not talking.  My mom was smart and realized that I needed that time.   I know sometimes she thinks I probably came from aliens (she's neat, I'm messy and that's just one way we're different), but she's always supporting and loving.  She's a great mom and a perfect grandma - love you, Mom! 

I found this fun heart brooch at an antique store and turned it into a bookmark for my mom.   For fun gift wrap, I made a pocket from library cards. 
 The library cards are wrapped with a doily then I just added some ephemera, doily stamp, button, and ribbon. 
 I like how the ribbon peeks out of the pocket.  Hope you're having a great week.  So glad you stopped by!


  1. Love how you wrapped your Mom's gift... bet she was happy to receive it, too.

  2. This is very sweet and very very beautiful!

  3. Oh my goodness, I want that book mark!! No joke, its a book mark fit for royalty (Which i am so not but dang, I love the bookmark.) Seriously classy work.

  4. WOWZER.. So much inspiration here.. I Love it.. I Love to read also.. Strangely enough I love scary book.. One of my favorite authors is Dean Koontz.. I love that book mark. With all the tags I have you think I would have a decent book mark.. But I am using one my nephew made 6 years ago.. Sentimental value.. Sorry for babbling on and on!!

    Hugs, Linda

  5. Such a precious gift this is Lori, love how you wrapped it for you mom who's going to be thrilled to get it from you, or I should say: because it's from you! I'm so happy to hear you both love to read, my mum and I shared the same love for books, enjoy this precious shared love...

  6. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself with us. Love how you turned the brooch into a priceless gift that your mom will cherish. Love the pocket made with a doily and ribbons...very creative!
