My beautiful mother celebrated her 80th birthday on April 29. You'd never guess it to look at her, and sadly, I didn't even get a birthday pic, but you can see her here with my dad on his birthday last October. She's one of the kindest, most generous people I know, as well as funny, talented and BUSY.
Mother has a thing for roosters so I made her this little 6x6 canvas, based on a card I saw on the Cherries Jubilee blog quite some time ago. I knew it would be perfect for her.
I love the way it turned out, and she seemed to like it, too. The rooster is from a vintage nursury rhyme book, the doily is from the 50s, and I made the flower from an old hat. I'm not sure what that doodad is on top, but I liked the look of it. The pointy top comes off and there's a small space inside.
Here's the original Cherries Jubilee card photo from her blog. So cute!
