+Christy James, I swear you will fall in love with this product! Excellent coverage using very little product, quick drying times, and the list goes on. Can't wait to see the piece you use it on. Have a great weekend my friend! xo

These are so cute, Marie! I love the leaves. I was feeling the sweater pumpkin bug this year too, but they're not nearly as cute as these. I'll be sharing mine tomorrow! 😊

Marie, your Mother is so blessed to have you for a daughter. This is such a sweet gift and I love that it was made with many things she already had. Maybe those elements will trigger memories? I am very close to my mother who will turn 70 this year. Her mom suffered from Alzheimer's so she may also, and I hope I can be as strong for her and you are for your Mom. And my Mom's favorite author is Catherine Cookson as well! Wishing you and your family a blessed Christmas, my friend! XOXO

Oh +Christy James, I hope your Mom is spared from this nasty disease. My Mom has two surviving siblings and they haven't got the disease so there is hope. If I were to be totally honest, I am very fearful of what may lie ahead for my generation. So cute that your Mom also loves Catherine Cookson - I think Mom read every single one of her books at least once. Thanks for visiting ♥ and wishing you and yours a Very Merry Christmas ♥ xo xo

These are so pretty in their lighter finish! And I'm glad you found a place you like for Mom. It must be so hard for you going through that, but finding a safe and trusted home for her probably helps so much!

Oh +Christy James, it is such a relief to finally have her in a safe and healthy environment. We've seen more smiles on her face in two days than we have in 2 1/2 years!
