My very creative Mom

This post is dedicated to my mom, who gave me my love of knitting, crocheting, art, and a whole lot of other things.

This is her favorite flower, Lily of the Valley, which reminds me both of her and her mother, Mae:

Check out the great wall shelf her husband Gerald built! I have never, ever, ever in my life seen Homespun displayed prominently in a living room, and vertically, on top of that! Like books!

All the paintings on the wall are by her very talented husband, Gerald. I would love to get his work into a gallery so more people in the world could enjoy it. Someday. A portrait of my mom, by Gerald, and our flag:

And here are some of her creations:

Toast and eggs

Crocheted placemat and coasters

Mailbox for her yarn!
