Calling all Mums!!

'A Mother will hold her child's
hand for a short while but their hearts forever
'

Just a little post to say a Happy Mothers Day for Sunday!

While looking for embellishments for other projects the other day I noticed that buried in this stash of diamante and glittery jewels there were a few of these vintage mother brooches. They really are pretty. Why can't they make things like this anymore?

Beautiful post and beautiful pictures Ginny! My what gorgeous brooches and I love how you have decorated Niki's fairy with them in the first pic! Happy Mothers day! Mothers day is in May here in Germany and we always have a little garden party only the women of our family on mothers day. Now I have to have another look at your gorgeous handmade items in your side bar. Are you selling them? Hugs and Smooches from rainy and stormy Bremen! Carol xox

Hi Ginny,
I love the one on the top. Love the sentiment as well. I still rather find the really old treasure already owned by a loving mom if that’s possible?????
