(I am posting this a couple of days past her birthday to make sure Mom has received it before she sees it online.)
I can't believe that my Mom is 70. She looks and acts so much younger, that it just doesn't seem real to me. They do say, however, that 70 is the new 50, right?
So, now that she's opened her gift, I can share with you all what I made to give to her:
I am still playing with enamels in my new kiln, and this combination was perfect for Mom. I love the delicate greens, yellows, oranges and reds mingling in the blue of the focal, and the leaf accent brings out these colors beautifully.
So, Happy Birthday, Mom! Thank you for teaching me how to be a mother who shows compassion, love and joy. I love you so much and am so proud to be your daughter.
