Yesterday´s Flowers

This flowerpicture is made by my mom ( 1930 - 1976 )
sometime in the 1950´s or maybe even earlier


Lots of angels around Christmas time in cards and decorations
- never seen one but many times strongly felt the presence.

The cat of the month is ...
My Darling Aston

Dear Guild-rez and Denise,
Thank you for your comments !

You both very wisely got my meaning.

We have not much daylight in Finland in December so the colours in my moms picture look a bit gloomy but its really quite bright.

Melita, your mum was very young when she made that beautiful painting. I can understand that you cherish it. I wish you happy Christmas preparations.

I am so sorry that you lost your mother at such a very early age. So nice that you shared her flowers with us. Angels are around us all the time.

Hei,hei, Melita,
I very much like your mom's flower picture. Looks like a wax scratching. Just beautiful. She was an artist. Like your angels. Very delicate and spiritual. Happy Todays Flowers Sunday.

Mmmelita! Tuosta kauniista kukkamaalauksesta pitäisi painattaa kangasta! Todella ihastuttava kuva jonka tunnearvo on varmasti huikea. Astonille terveisiä, hänellä on todella viehkeänväriset silmät!

Kiitos Flicka,
Äidin sakuratyö oli aikoinaan mummon seinällä ja siksi tallessa kun muut kadonneet paitsi yksi toinen.
Kiinalaiset sanovat että kellonajan tietää aika tarkastikin kissan silmistä-tämä kuva keskipäivän aikaan,iltaisin Astonin silmät kuin mustat oliivit.

Hei vielä Flicka,
Tunnervo on tosiaan huikea, jopa viiltävä.

Tosi kaunis tuo äitisi tekemä kukkatyö.
Ja onko oma kissa kuvassa, niin suloinen. Sanoo täältä kissaihminen. Kiva kun kävit kommentoimassa blogiini.
