For my dear friend...

This week a dear customer (and friend!) endured the loss of her mom. While her passing was not unexpected this is never an easy loss for anyone and my heart goes out to her and her family. My friend and her two adult daughters are very close and all seem to have a love for mixing old with new and gardening. So to honor their grandmother and mom I put together this arrangement for them to enjoy. A large blooming lavender plant hugging a collection of 3 tarnished silver pieces, tied up with vintage lace. Two engraved with "Grandma" for the daughters and the top one engraved with "Mom". I covered the plastic container with a vintage cotton doily. Our prayers with you and yours my dear friend.

I'm so sorry for your friend. :( It's very tough losing a parent. I know. What you did for her is just beautiful and so thoughful. I'm sure she will appreciate it and it will become a wonderful keepsake to remember her mother by. :)

Not only is that very sweet and empathetic of you, but it's gorgeous to boot! I just posted about my special weekly time with my Mom and Grandma and I am sooo grateful that me and my daughters have it... so special!

What a beautiful thing to do! Did you engrave those yourself or have them engraved? The arrangement looks great!

Theresa, thank you. I took the pitchers to "Things Remembered" in our local shopping mall. They do a lot of engraving for wedding favors, etc. I chose the fonts and they did the rest, took about 30minutes. They turned out beautifully.
