C'mon spring...


Christmas came on Valentine's this year. I was admiring a tree skirt at my parents house in December. I wanted to buy one for myself, but unfortunately it was one-of-a-kind that my mom bought in an antique store, So, I was so pleasantly surprised when it arrived in the mail last week, just assuming she had gifted her treasure to me. But no, she sewed it, exactly like the original and hand sewed all the sequins on! I love it so and will cherish our 'homemade-by-mom' tree skirt for years to come. Up until now, we have used bath towels, and even an old red and white striped tennis skirt that was re-gifted to me. Good riddance old rags. Now we are official. Thanks mom!
