A Little Thought...





This week, I came down to my studio, coffee in hand naturally, after a long day, to find a beautiful bouquet of fresh white hydrangeas sitting in milk-glass vase. Tucked underneath, was a nice little note from my Mom...it made my whole day! She knows I love milk-glass, especially the simple, slightly transparent kind. (this one has a scalloped edge/ one of my favorite decorations!) Topped with a full bouquet of hydrangeas it looked perfect. Such a simple gift, but I just love it. Sometimes, it's the simplest, most thoughtful things that we remember years down the road. Something that makes us stop in our tracks.

Has someone does something like this for you? This weekend perhaps, if you get a chance, do something small for someone you love, to show that you appreciate them or just are thinking about them :)

  2. How sweet of your mom. This is a lovely thought. I try to be mindful of these kinds of things but it's easy to let it slide when we get busy so this is a great reminder. The images are all lovely too. Enjoy your weekend!

  4. This is such a lovely post. My mom has done lots of similar things for me through the years. And you're right, now that my dad is gone, I often think of things he did for me--they mean the world!
