About Me

My photo
My passion is decorating with vintage and antique finds on a budget. There was a time when I wouldn't have dreamed of going into a goodwill. That day has passed. :) My second love is scrapbooking all those special family moments for posterity, and I recently set up my very own scrapbooking room. I have three beautiful children, two sons and a daughter as well as a sweet (albeit full blooded Yankee) daughter-in-law and two grandgirls. I also enjoy gardening, meeting new friends and relaxing on my patio in the evenings with a glass of fine wine. During the summer of 2001, I spent two glorious weeks at Kennedy Space Center. I've been somewhat of a space geek ever since....

Happy Birthday in Heaven

We probably never realize the lasting effect we have on those who love us.  My mom was such a sweet, gentle woman and I miss her so very much.  It's been a little over 4 months since she earned her heavenly wings, but the pain of the loss is still so sharp that it often takes my breath away.  The holiday season will be a rough one for me.

Today my sweet Brooke drew this picture.  She told her mom she drew it to show how much she misses her great grandmother.  It is so beautifully done that it made me cry.  There is so much emotion there. 

This coming Saturday would have been a day of celebration because my mom would have been 90 years old.  I know she is at peace and reunited with my dad, the love of her life, but somehow that isn't much consolation on days like today.



  1. Oh Terri- My heart aches for you. It is nice to know that she is with God and your Dad but that still doesn't ease the ache in your heart, does it? I think you should celebrate the day...bake her a cake and have your family celebrate her 90th birthday...write her a letter and tell her how much you love her. I know-kind of corny-but it just might help ease the ache this first birthday without her. That picture is just precious. What a sweet baby.

    You know, my father has been gone for 40 years and I think about him all the time and still miss him. xo Diana

  2. I am so sorry about your mom. I lost my sweet mom six years ago and it is still hard. Some days it doesn't seem real. I agree - celebrate her birthday in some way. Sometimes my son, who was only two when my mom died, and I send balloons to Granny to tell her how much we love and miss her. We just release them and smile and talk about her :-) Sounds corny but it does help.

    Thanks for your sweet comments about my kitchen. The name of the granite is New Venetion Gold. Good luck on your kitchen redo.


  3. Terri I lost my biological dad in August, it's rough still. I don't know that things will ever be the same as I feel like a tree who's lost some of it's roots.... very loose and insecure and unsure. On the other hand I don't think I want things to be the same... my family and I came together and took care of our dad, doing things the way we thought he would want them and we are stronger as a group and individually than we were.
    The thing I regret are all the questions I now realize I may never know the answers to...

  4. This post made me cry :( I think about her all the time. I love and miss you, mom!!
