Happy Mother's Day to all of you out there. Tomorrow is the day we honor all our mothers...those who are still with us and those who are not.

We had a Mother's Day Bottle Swap
and the special lady I feature through the swap is Lori from RufflesRibbonsandRoses
Her daughter Noelle who was my swap partner is featuring MY Momma and you can read about her HERE.

Lori is a beautiful lady both inside and out.

She is a true girly-girl lady who loves Pink, adores her family and grandchildren and is strong in her Catholic faith.

You can see here by the sweet things her daughter Noelle sent that she likes frilly laces, ribbons and crafting. Especially scrapping. She is a bang-up cook and likes baking. Cupcakes and Cookies are her specialty. In fact Noelle sent me their cut-out cookie recipe and this is special to me as I collect recipes and I will be making these cookies as soon as Punkin and I lose about 5 more pounds.

Lori is a gardner and likes Roses and growing flowers from seed and Noelle included a packet of seed for me and they will go in my flower bed in front!

Lori is just a sweet, always smiling woman enjoying this time of her life; a proud momma, wife and young grandma. She loves blogging and has a charming blog called Ruffles Ribbons and Roses you'll want to visit.

Happy Mother's Day, Lori and it has been a pleasure getting to know you and your beautiful daughter, Noelle!

These are the links of all the gals who participated in the Bottle Swap so click on each one either today or tomorrow and pay them a visit and see the "new" mommas they honor.

This was a delightful swap as it gave each of us the opportunity of introducing our own mother to someone and letting all of you see just some of what made our momma unique and precious.

And I cannot let this day go by with paying tribute, honor and love to the "mommas" in my life.

My beautiful daughters Lori at the top and "baby" daughter Shari right below and then Jessica our beautiful daughter in law.

My beautiful mother-in-law Miz Pearl no longer with us but very much in our hearts and the only picture I have of us together.

And last but not least my beautiful mother, Gene Margaret who waits for me in heaven. This is the way my Mother looked at the age of 20.

To read more about my momma visit Noelle right here!

Happy Mother's Day to all women as there is no beauty greater than the heart of a woman.

  5. Dear MizMollye...
    Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog.
    After reading your tag tutorial I thought ~ hmmm, it's been a long time since I dove into tag art...and I loved making tags!!!
    Today I decided to clean up my work table by making tags with those scraps!!!
    A clean table and 11 tags later ~ you inspire me.
    Happy Mother's Day...

  6. Mollye,
    What a wonderful group of beautiful women you have in your life. Your daughters are gorgeous...just like their mom:)

    Blessings always and Happy Mohter's Day!

  7. A bottle intresting and so much went in it. May youand all the women have a great Mother's day.

  8. What beautiful memories you received and looks like you gave out! I think I will spend most of my day catching up with all the Swap ladies! I am in the process of posting mine. It was quite emotional for me because I no longer have my mom with me! But my swap partner Linda and I had a lot of fun and fears! We laughed at each other and found out this was such a wonderful swap! I learned much about Linda's lovely momma so you can stop by later and check it all out! I am taking my swap stuff outside to get better light and great pictures! Happy Mother's Day to All and Love ya bunches! Anne

  23. Happy Mothers Day....My partner and I are mailing our bottles out later due to stuff.... I have had a rough couple weeks and had to put the bottle on the back burner unfortunately.We had a friend pass away, my husband ended up in the hospital and had emergency surgery, my kids are now really ill..... and I am officially bushed. Bottle will go out this week and I am still going to do a special post of her mom as well....I just hope Lori will understand. Hugs, Mica/The Child's Paper
