Home from rehab!

Above, Mom is now home from her doctor's appointment this morning, reading today's paper and wearing a knitted hat against the cold outside!
These lilies from Laura are still blooming!... now that she is home they are in her room here.

I recently found this very old photo.  It shows Mom as a child, about 1930, before the dust bowl in Eva, Oklahoma.
She is wearing a new green velvet hat and standing in front of a bush with yellow roses. She told me those colors when she looked at the photo.  She can't remeber the dress, so I can really play with the color there!.

I have made plans to use this photo as inspiration for a painting. As soon as I have quiet time to sketch and plan and paint!

For now, I am thankful to have her home here.....and doing better!

I'm so glad your mom is home, such a nice feeling. Love the photo of her as a little girl, and it is wonderful to know the colors.
