There's nothing sweeter than being able to go through your junk stash to find all the makings of a perfect Mother's Day morning surprise.
Mom knows we are spending the day with her this Sunday on Mother's Day, bringing along a delicious lunch to share. What she doesn't know is we are arriving bright and early with her her favorite banana crumb muffins too!
I had a ball gathering my favorite freebie canning jars which hold flower clippings from our front yard tree. The jars are the perfect shade of blue and are just right for Mother's Day.
I thought I'd tote along my vintage picnic basket, a freebie find that I normally use in another display in my home. I love the versatility of junk, don't you?
Ahhhh! The scrumptious Food of Honor. I couldn't share this post with everyone without a closeup of the food now could I?
The Food of Honor has been placed on a pedestal, the zinc lid from the Ball canning jar. Yummm! A queen we'll treat her 'til we eat her.
So why not share some junk with Mom? Then she'll really know she's Queen For A Day.
Do you have plans for Mother's Day? If so, I'd love to hear about them.
My husband, kids and I celebrated this past Sunday, a week early, since Hubs will be out of town on the real date. He kiddingly gave me the option of going to the zoo with them or to stay home and relax by myself. He wanted me to decide whichever would make my Mother's Day brighter.
I am a self-made junker with a *sweet* disposition. Words I live by: reuse. repurpose. reinvent. refresh. refine. recycle. reclaim. remodel. restore. rescue. redeem. and rust.
