Visiting my daughter for Mother's Day (or Mothering Sunday, as I prefer!) I was very envious of the beautiful things she had - just ordinary items, but the way she arranges and displays them fills me with a longing to be able to do that myself!
A simple arrangement of flowers by a mirror looked fantastic.
To say nothing of a Samovar found in an Antique Shop! (It is a samovar, isn't it?)
We all had a lovely Sunday together, and it made me realise yet again, how valuable family relationships are. Edges might rub together and cause friction, but in the end its family that counts.
I felt very much for my sister, who lost her son last September, and for his wife and two little girls who lost a husband and father. Not all Mother's Days were happy ones.
I hope you all had happy ones, though. Oh, and I got a pot of lovely daffodils too!
