"FLORAL and STRIPES" Theme
"A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ~ Washington Irving
The debut of our May table setting
Imitation is suicide; these are my original designs/creations. So, please do not recreate or copy them as your own. Why be a "cheap copy" when you can create a "designer's original?"
Happy Mother's Day to ALL women!!! Believe it or not; we are nurturers by nature and in some way, either biological or spiritual mothers, surrogate mothers, mother-figures, Godmothers, grandmothers, great-grandmothers, aunts, sisters, cousins, sister-friends, and mentors.
Did you notice that I reused the placemats, napkins, and napkin rings from the April table setting? Also, I spotted the bowl in Wal Mart about two weeks ago, and during that time, it matched perfectly with the April table setting, also.

GOOD NEWS / EARLY MOTHER'S DAY GIFTS: I think I mentioned in one of my commentaries that I was enrolled in two graduate classes this semester while employed full-time; I am pursuing my 3rd degree - a Specialist degree and I am half-way finished.The semester officially ended last week and I earned an A in both classes (thank God) that were VERY challenging and involved a lot of reading, critical thinking, analyzing, and writing. All in all, I gained a wealth of knowledge, had the grace of God, a very supportive husband, and instructors who were true experts and professionals in their respective profession.
The table is spread; feast and enjoy your day!
