Blooming

Thursday, December 1, 2011

Every mom is good at something, or perhaps a number of things; my own Mama has, among her many talents, an amazing design eye, ninja sewing skills, a green thumb she didn't pass on to me and is my own personal voice of reason. But she can't (as far as I know, since I've never asked) arrange a bouquet as gorgeous as this mother-of-the-bride designed beauty; can you believe that's a DIY project?

Tell me, what's your mom's secret skill? Is she a phenomenal seamstress like yesterday's mother of the bride, a terrific storyteller, or a wonderful cook?

  4. Wow! That is an incredible bouquet! My mom can cook, clean, and sew like no one's business but hasn't done it in a long time. Sigh.

  5. Oh, wow!! This is breathtaking! I can't believe it's a DIY...I wish that was my talent :) My mom is wonderful at so many things, but I think one of her best talents is her ability to make every place we live in feel so homey. When I left for college and my brother took my room, I got moved into the teeny tiny office. By the time I got home for Christmas, my mom had transformed it into the cutest, coziest little bedroom nook!

  18. i'm sad to say my mom's best skill is probably shopping or spending money, not something amazingly useful at times and WOW this bouquet is amazing!

  22. My mom's secret skill has to be the ability to stay calm under any kind of circumstance. Seriously. She is never flustered. It's frightening.

  25. For most of my life I thought my mom was always wrong about everything (don't we all, as adolescents?) but as I've gotten older I realize that she is practically always right. About everything. I call her almost every day to ask her questions: how long to cook squash, the milk:lemonjuice ratio to substitute for buttermilk, how late the drycleaners is open...so many things I could check the internets for, but I'd rather ask her!

  26. My Mum and my Grandma are both wonderful at cooking/baking desserts. Funnily enough it's the only thing I ever like to cook. I'm no good and really have little interest in cooking proper meals, only dessert :-)
