Well, how was your Mother’s Day? As you know I was not only celebrating Mother’s Day but also my wedding anniversary, it was quite the day.
We are not much for the commercialism of holidays in our home and much prefer to keep things rather low key. So you can imagine my surprise when Reece came running into the kitchen while I was cooking breakfast on Sunday morning (yes you read that right, I was cooking breakfast) with this:
Yes that is a wonderfully delicious pile of vintage fabric!!! How awesome is that. To say I was pleased would be an understatement, I was over the moon. What a lovely surprise the two of them cooked up.
Justin had yet another surprise for me, this:
That is a lovely, little, old case. And guess what’s inside:
It is filled with knitting needles! Now I was pinching myself, I couldn’t believe it. Justin was told at the thrift shop that they were over 100 years old. Wow! The ruler has the name of an Inn on it in Michigan. I have not had time to look it up yet, but you can but I will be soon. I am so looking forward to casting something on with them, the thought of the hands of a mother using them 100 years ago to knit something for her family is amazing and so very special.
The rest of our day was spent immersed with family. My mother and father in law had a wonderful anniversary brunch for us and they were kind enough to invite my parents, so we got to spend our anniversary with family and share Mother’s Day with both of our moms. It was a lovely day filled with great food, family, laughter and love.
