i couldn’t believe my luck when i came across a candlewick vase with cornflower etching (i wrote about candlewick here). i’ve always kept an eye out for candlewick because my mum-in-law has a collection of the glasses, but the only other time i’d seen this vase was in an antique store — at an antique store price. i knew i wanted to give this to her for mother’s day. i love the tapered bobbles on the sides, and the 1920’s art-deco (though it’s not) flare of it.
you can just barely make out the cornflower etching below the bobbled rim.

it’s a beautiful sunny friday here, and i hope it carries through the weekend as i spend time with my little ones, who are getting not-so-little so quickly. just a few minutes ago as i sat down to check my email, i received a sweet message that reminded me just how lucky i am to be a mom. i hope that’s you’re lucky enough too to have wonderful children and mothers in your lives. i’ve got both and this mother’s day and every day, that’s the greatest gift i could have.
happy mother’s day, happy weekend all.
(oh, and sentimental stuff aside, i’m so totally milking it on sunday — feet up, not cookin’ or cleanin’, making obnoxious demands for various difficult to make drinks and meals, the whole deal! ;-) have a good one!)
