It's All In The Family...


My mom is EXTREMELY talented and has always been since I was a baby. I grew up with her always making so many different things. She even had a business selling her handmade items. She has made so many creative things. I wanted to share some of her handmade items with you that I have around my house. Starting first with this adorable bunny that always sits on the back of my couch. Isn't she adorable? My mom made every single part of this little bunny doll. Well, she is not exactly little. She is a good size bunny doll. I wish I had the other many dolls that my mom has made for me over the years. They are in storage while we are trying to sell our house.


My mom also makes these unbelievably beautiful wreaths.
 I have them all over my house. This one is in our master bedroom right above my bed. I LOVE it so much. This wreath also lights up and is beautiful at night when all the lights are off. It gives off such a soothing aura.

My mom can sew, she can create beautiful wreaths with dried flowers and she can also paint. She painted this for me as a gift back in 2000. She did such a beautiful job. She is like another Donna Dewberry. This is hanging in our dining room.. well our eat in kitchen rather.

This wreath lights up as well. This wreath is in Hallie's bedroom and she loves it. Isn't my mom so talented? I think so and I am her biggest fan. Every new piece I always wanted and had to have.

This is another beautiful wreath. It is hanging in our living room above our flat screen tv. This one lights up as well.


This is something my mom made along time ago but I still have it displayed. It is a rod iron heart shape and she put dried and silk flowers on it. I have a rod iron house that she put some of these same flowers but different colors and it is gorgeous. It is packed away. I love to have my mom's hand made items all over my house.

My mom made this for me and it is a little doll that hides  those plastic bags from the store. She has made so many of these and she made one for my daughter so that she could put her overnight items in when she stayed the night at a friends house. So you can use it for many different  ways. Isn't she so cute though? I love her piggy tails. She also painted her face. She is SO talented when it comes to drawing little faces. I only wish I could draw like my mom does. If she ever made cards they would be absolutely stunning. As you can see I am a huge fan of my mom's stuff.


This is another piece that was made along long time ago. It is a little glass jar filled with potpourri. Then my mom took the front of the jaw and used a magnolia scented envelope sachet and then added her trademark flowers, ribbon and greenery.


This is a beautiful swag that my mom made for me. It is in our living room above our windows. She has made so many of these swags and they are all so beautiful.

This is a little fruit wreath that my mom made for my kitchen. Every Christmas I always asked for homemade items from my mom because there is not one single item that she could have bought that would have meant more to me. Plus all of her items are so special, beautiful and very meaningful to me. I will keep every item she has ever made for me forever. Once we get into our new house I will show you a bunch of other amazing items my mom has made through out the years.
 I don't know how many of you have mother's who have passed on their creative talents to you or have encouraged you to be creative. But having my mom's handmade items all around my house always makes me feel like she is always around. She lives about 2 hours away from me. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the things that my mom has made for me and my daughter over the years. I have SO many other items that are stored away that I will have to show you one day. I hope that these items inspire you in one way or another. I know having her talented creativity all around me inspires me every day.
