SPEAKS VOLUMES

My youngest son was working for a furniture store and he brought this for me for Mother's day. He took alot of harassment from his co-workers for buying this.

They say pictures speak a thousand words.....this one speaks volumes to me.



Here are my Halloween block swaps which Jane hosted. Thanks Jane....love them all.

I love that figurine your son got for you. They are such special figurines in that line....and it's nice that he saw the "message" in that one!!!

Carla said...

Oh isn't that pretty. My mother-in-law bought that exact same one for my husband about 5 years ago. I love those blocks.

Mandy said...

I love the blocks! What are you going to make from them??? Will you need to add a couple more blocks? I noticed there were 22 and I can't figure that into a top evenly lol!

AWWWW ! I think it's a cute and very thoughtful gift.

They only gave him a hard time because they are jealous!

Your son is a jewel. Only a young man of character would buy his mother something and take the ribbing from his co-workers. I love those facesless Willow Tree figurines. I have several of them myself :-)

As a mother of four sons, I can really relate to the emotions you must have felt when you received that touching figurine. It is lovely, Barb.

Your quilt blocks look wonderful too.

Yes the figurine says a lot! Your son's friends should not give him a hard time they should buy something that thoughtful for their mother!!

Julia said...

I love the figurine...It shows your son is very thoughtful and caring for his Mum...
The other boys should take a lesson from your son on this!!
I think he is a special son!

Your son is special! I love those figurines. My granddaughter gave me one and I do cherish it. Love your Halloween blocks. Seeing that you are getting yours done has given me a nudge to do something with mine. Wasn't that a fun project.
