Mother's Day Update

It's not only Mother's Day, it's the beginning of National Etiquette Week.  Click over to Miss Janice's blog to enter an etiquette giveaway!

What an amazing day...Just had to post!  Great Sephora gift card from the family and hand painted "crafts" (see last weekend's post!) from the girls.  Loved them....a sign for my office and a tray to have snacks "served to Mom" through the year.  Bless you, girls!

Also treated myself to a couple of nice things online...including signing up for an exciting historic preservation seminar (Dear Husband says this is boring, but I think it's fabulous) and taking Talbots up on their 30% off discount that ends at midnight.  I've done some research since writing about them earlier this week, and I have to say I am liking what I am seeing.....When I get my Espadrille Tote, I will let you know what it's like!

And finally....for Miss Betty:

If gardenias grow in heaven, Lord, pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother's arms and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love and miss her, and when she turns to smile 
place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.
Because remembering her is easy ~ I do it everyday.
There's an ache within my heart that will never go away. 
Happy Mother's Day in Heaven, Mama!

More soon......Love, Liz (The Classic Preppy)
