A Mother’s Love

Unfortunately, the author of this poem is unknown but I wanted to dedicate this to all the mothers out there today, particularly mine, for their unconditional love like no other. I am indeed blessed and fortunate to have and to be raised by such an incredibly loving, caring, doting, forgiving, supportive, and exceptionally inspiring mother, who always who puts her kids before herself. And as I count my blessings, my heart goes out to all those who’ve haven’t been as lucky to have had a mother or experience that love…. for those who have lost their mothers and would do anything to see them again……for those who are separated by a million miles and miss ever moment of their embrace…….and for those who desperately long to be a mother.

[Personalised Gifts]: Lavender Hearts for Mother’s Day

My folks were over last week (hated saying goodbyes yesterday!) so I was really fortunate to have spent Mother’s Day together as a complete family unit! I’m not normally big on commercialised occasions but when you are separated by miles of land and oceans, time spent together is truly invaluable! And what are my chances that their impromptu visit coincided with Mother’s Day. So yea, I cannot be more grateful really.

Anyway, seeing as I was feeling a lot more confident with the sewing machine, I set out to make some lavender hearts for my two Mums (mine and my husband’s!) as small token of our love for them and all that they have done and sacrificed for us over the last twenty/thirty odd years! In the end, I ended up making 3 large hearts and two small ones! :D So here’s how they turned out………..ohhh and boy did they just smell simply divine!!!BLOG_STRIP lavender hearts WEB2 BLOG_STRIP lavender hearts2 WEB2

These lavender hearts can be a perfect little accompaniment to a vintage themed tea party, bridal shower  or a wedding so if you would like one made to order then simply drop me a line (via email, here or on my Facebook page) to discuss it further. I can have them made in various different fabrics, colours and sizes depending on your requirements and can even be personalised to include their name etc. More details will be posted on Facebook so stay tuned. xx
