Remembering Mother's Day!

I had a busy Monday but my mind kept wandering off to yesterday and the Oregon Coast.
I just thought I'd take a bit of time tonight to share the wonderful day I had and put it on my blog.
I'm hoping to have my blog put into books so I can keep them "somewhere" other than on my computer.
When I woke up, Jim had some goodies for me with my coffee. He had gotten me some beautiful samplers a few weeks back as my gift, but he's so funny, he just has to give me something on the holiday.

This is a poem about Mother's Day on a leather wall hanging. It's so sweet. I love the words and they made me tear up. And to make it even better, it was from Portland, Oregon!

You can see a few other treats. A miniature coin purse for my dolls along with a tiny tin type! The ring is going to be for Gina's wedding. When Angie got married, Jim bought me a pearl necklace with a diamond. We found this ring awhile back and old Jimmy just couldn't wait to give it to me. I will save it for the wedding.

I was also gifted a wonderful Queen Victoria book. It's really a find addition to my collection.

After coffee, we drove to the Oregon Coast. It was just the most beautiful day...warm, sunny and perfect! Jim hadn't been to the beach for about a year...shame on him. Our coast is so pretty.

Of course,we had to do a bit of antique shopping. Here's Jimmy at a fun place in Wheeler, Oregon.

Of course, shopping makes you hungry, so we went to Bay City to a casual and yummy place we love!

I had a bay shrimp and crab salad and Jim had oysters about 3 different ways~stew, raw on the half shell and fried. After we stuffed ourselves, we headed home. What a great day.

My girls took me out last weekend. We went to a great breakfast place were we cooked our own pancakes in the middle of our table! It was so fun. They took me to get my IPhone and we also did some antique shopping. Gina was out of town for so many Mother's Days, so this was really a special
occasion. I kind of celebrated all week long....thanks girls, thanks my sweet hubby! I really was spoiled!
