Mother's Day Gifts From The Heart

I am so blessed.
I am blessed to be a Mother.
I am blessed to be a Grandmother.
I am blessed to be Nana..
just Nana...

My children honored me with
the most wonderful, thoughtful
gifts.  I was not expecting
it and there are several
pictures of me bawling..
which I will NOT be showing
because, trust me,
they aren't pretty!

I am apologizing for the pictures
ahead of time-I did not
realize how bad they were
until I loaded them into the blog...ugh...

Here is a tea set of
bone china.

I have never seen this pattern
before, have you?

It looks Irish but is made in England
as you can see by the mark
(or not-you know my photo skills)

It is beautiful and I love anything Irish.

I received a wonderful purse..

and a bracelet..

and a great ceramic
"watering can"
that has been planted with
a miniature rose.

And 3 wonderful cards-

But my
gift of all..
came from my
It is etched with the words.
"My favorite people call me Nana"

SweetCheeks informed me that
I could wear it IN the shower
but I could NOT wear it to bed.
Hmmm...she'll never know!
I don't think I will ever
take it off!

  12. LOL...i got so tickled at your comment on the white sleds getting lost in a snowbank. Never thought of that! I was thinking how cool the white sled would look on my white fireplace with a green wreath this Christmas. :) You sure received some wonderful Mother's Day gifts. Love that laurel wreath china!! Happy day to you Nana.
