A patched together lifestyle of thrift and charm...

Meaningful Monograms...

Every once in a while when I'm out scouting for treasures,
I see something 'just for me' that I have to pick up.  
(Usually I'm just hunting for items to sell.)  
Such was the case last week.  I was at a flea market and laying among the boxes of 'junque' were these precious linens...
Just look at all that lacy work...
Why were these special to me?  Because they have my mother's monogram.  She is 90 years old, not doing very well & feeling 
like her time on this earth may be very short.  So I scooped them up.  And since I bought a number of other things from the same dealer - for very cheap - these were essentially 'free'!
Years ago I was fortunate enough to find green handtowels 
with her full initals... 'AMH'  - appearing in the order her 
name is now.  I know the middle initial is supposed to be 
for the surname - but this was close enough for me...
If my mommy goes to heaven soon - my world will have
a huge void.  Needing to trust Jesus with this one.
