Mom's house

Mom's house and Mom posing with her tulips.

Before she moved here years ago she prayed for a house with green grass all around because she lived in a city and a very small lot that was mostly dirt. My father and my uncle and brother built this house more than fifty years ago and Mom put in the lawn herself. She spread the loam and then spread the grass seeds. Here is the result even after all these years. Well, she got the green grass okay.

Thanks for visiting, everyone. I worked on the seating plan for the restaurant tonight with Mom and my daughter. My daughter just took hold and arranged everything FAST...

Have a great day. Hope the weather will hold. Today was magnificent!!


  1. She did it herself? Man...she is such an example to me....she is one determined lady. My first thought would have been to find my yellow pages and look for a landscaper! lol!

  2. Your Mom has a beautiful home!! I love the green lawn.....
    Have a Great Day!!

  3. What a lovely yard...such a special lady. You are very lucky!

  4. Thank you for sharing your Mom. I relaly think I love her!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!


I am the crafter extraordinaire (on this blog anyway.) I live with my husband, my son, David, in a cozy cape cod style house in Connecticut.
