I remember my Mother's birthday today. On top of my sewing machine I have a sewing tree. It is decorated with Mother's notions. The tree stand is her old skirt marker. It sits on top of her hat box. A tin of buttons came from her house.
I light her Christmas candles on her birthday. I send my "thank you" and my "miss you". Mother painted the chalk-ware when she was a young woman. It was always in her sewing room.
Old thimbles are light covers; one of her pin cushions still has a few pins.
