Momma Love

It's Mother's Day Bottle Swap Reveal Party...
I'm so excited to share about my momma!!  She's always been a ROCK for me!!
We are totally different women but God put us together on purpose for sure.  I'm not sure I shared with Mary Beth...but my mom was a single mom and never got any help from anyone.  She sometimes was working 3 jobs to make enough money to raise 2 kids and pay rent.  I praise God that I learned her work ethic enough to get an Acct. degree and work and meet hubby and work until I had my boys and now I'm a SAHM.

This is the only pic I took of my pkg to Mary Beth.  LOL!  How did that happen?
My mom is into blingity bling!!  Everything has to sparkle.  So.. I put silver tinsel into the bottle and wrapped it in silver/white wrap.  I added a lime green label with the address and I think momma would approve.  My mom love fabrics, quilting, Memories of Yesterday figurines, beading and clothes.  Her obsession is gardening!!  I should have sent a seed pkg in my bottle ( you should have seen me trying to squeeze 1 thru the little bottle top). She loves to country dance with her beau and is into our Indian heritage which is her daddy's side of the family.  She's a Sassy Lassie!! 
Here she is, Leona Moyen, coming out to watch our yougest play baseball.
She was born in Leominster, Massachusetts and got to Texas and never looked back.  She dreams daily of retiring next year from book keeping and running the roads and traveling with her beu.

Here we mom, her mom, me and my eldest!
Me with my youngest last summer for a museum outing.
Being a mom is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me.
I got to swap with Mary Beth at
She's got a gorgeous blog and is very talented.  I was impressed and intimidated all in 1.  I see she's in love with fabric flowers and is very gifted with her crafting ability and scrapbooks too.  I sent her fabric and blingy yellow organza (mom's fav color).  A Mug with Leona's fav. motto: Live  Love  Laugh

I got my sassy momma a soft leather blue Kathy Van Zeeland purse for Mother's Day.
We got my Mother-in-law a Memory Foam Serta Mattress pad and pillows.

  3. Hi Denise Marie~ you are so lucky to have your mom and grandmom still. How fun you did that bottle swap thing. Is that the one Miz Mollye started? I had too much going on at the time to play this time :( I love what you sent Mary Beth and what you got for your Mama and mil. I have a good friend who's Cherokee. What tribe is your mother descended from?
