Giving Thanks For....Mother's Day!

G'Day from Oz sweet friends. I am so happy that I can take some time today to give thanks for my perfect Mother's Day yesterday! My family made my day so special.....

Thank you sweet family!

I hope you don't mind if I share my special day with you?

A few weeks ago we went antiquing and I found a beautiful Roslyn Trio for only $40. I loved the details on each piece and thought it would be a lovely Mother's Day gift. So hubby bought it and I couldn't wait to open it on Mother's day. You can imagine my surprise when I found not only this beautiful cup and saucer but my sweet hubby had also bought me the most beautiful Jo Malone Candle!

My sweet children also surprised me with gifts that they had bought with their own pocket money!

The fun times continued at my Mum and Dad's place where we enjoyed a delicious Hungarian Goulash made by Dad, the cupcakes made by Maddy and Big Al and shortbread made by Stacey with her new flower shaped cookie cutter. The table was decorated with roses from Dad's garden!

Of course, the day would have been PERFECT if  Holly and her family were with us but they will be back from the UK next year and we can have an even bigger and better Mother's day celebration then!

Thank you also dear friends for coming to visit me in my little corner of the world Down Under! I truly appreciate it when you pop in and say G'day!

I hope that all the Mothers had a beautiful day yesterday and I also hope that you have a beautiful week.

Best wishes always,

  39. Natasha, such beautiful mosaics of a wonderful day. They did a great job on those cupcakes. I love the platter you have them on. I am not sure the tripod is making that much difference. A better camera with those fancy lenses is what would really help.
