Happy Mother’s Day!
This post is for all the beautiful ladies who are so loved by their spouses, family, friends, and loved ones! I walked outside, and found these Irises had survived yesterday’s Las Vegas 95 degree heat, so I decided I really wanted to share them with you.
That’s the nice thing about having a blog on my website. I can do this.
I decided to share my flowers with you just so I could wish all of you.. “Happy Mother’s Day!”
My mother’s favorite color was this shade of purple. I am rather fond of it now myself, thanks to her.
These salt lamp tea-light candle holders are my favorite gifts to give because the salt lamps give off the smell of freshness into the air when soy tea light candles are burned inside them, causing them to warm up. The first time I burned them on was on this counter top. Good thing, there was such a beautiful place mat under them because I was shocked to find it covered with moisture. Something in the ion process makes them attract water.
(Place mat made by my friends mother. Thank you!)
In loving memory of the special ladies in my life. My Grandmother’s Olive and Helen, Grandma Creviston, my Mom Betty, Mother-In-Law Arlene, and Aunt Loraine. Love all of you!!
Ditto from all the bros!
Love you Jennifer, Christina, Teri, Beth, Sheryl, Sunny, and Karen!
I am so grateful, there aren’t enough words. Thanks for blessing my life, and teaching me so much about love, kindness, flowers, and beauty just to name a few things. And our national parks…………… mom and dad.
The rest of you special ladies I will be calling & you know who you are. Love you too!
What’s her favorite scent, her special color? Will you want to make some rose scented soy candles to go with a bouquet of roses you plan to give her? Or how about some floating candles? I have some heart-shaped and rose shaped candle molds that make very nice floating candles for bathtubs, or to float in the punch bowl.
Here’s just one idea that I think that would be great even for smaller children to make a unique candle decoration to give their mother on her day. And what fun you can have making them together! (Yes, adult supervision is recommended for the little kids!)
The instructions are simple. Here’s what you will need:
A word of caution, don’t use just any candle wax if you intend to float your candle in water with anything edible, or that you will drink. I wouldn’t want paraffin wax anywhere near my food or liquid refreshments, because it’s made from petroleum-based products. Also when making your own floating soy candles, I would be very selective of the color used, and the fragrance in any floating candle I use around any liquid that might later be consumed.
