tea with mom
I had a busy day today. In between taking care of my little munchkins, I made several pieces of jewelry. I made a really pretty bracelet and earrings set of vintage silver ball beads and black seed beads as a gift for someone. I also made three pair of earrings for another person using more vintage beads: one with silver and black beads, one with aqua swirled beads (similar to the ones pictured) and silver beads, and one with vintage tear shaped pearl beads. I really enjoy making jewelry as gifts. So fun! I hope they like the jewelry as much as I liked making it for them.
I also made a beautiful orange beaded bracelet for my mom. The beads remind me of Jolly Ranchers or some kind of candy like that. So pretty. She really liked it. I surprised her today and took her to a little tea shop. We had delicious hot tea and scones with lemon curd and some kind of yummy whipped cream spread. It was such a fun time with her. There is something really peaceful about having tea. I felt so relaxed and at peace. I also just love being a woman and being able to share with my mom about life's struggles, joys, and finding God in our roles are wives and mothers. I am so thankful for our relationship and friendship.
