"Thoroughly Modern Mommy"

a little "modern mommy" necklace that I created and wanted to share...
I just LOVE mine and thought they might make
a delightful Mother's Day gift!

I chose a large covered button as the base for the silhouette...
I covered mine in a natural linen,
I then copied the children's silhouettes (reducing the size to fit the button),
cut the silhouette and apply to the button top using Mod Podge
 (use several coats for a nice strong finish),
I then removed the button loop on the back of the button using pliers
and glued a jewelry bail to the top,
I added vintage lace and seam binding bows to the tops of the bails,
and strung them on a long antique brass chain - adding a few other beads and more vintage lace.

the Prince...

Princess #1...

and Princess #2!

and now they are with me wherever I go!

and at the end of the day in my favorite tray they lay...
my "thoroughly modern mommy" necklace!

Happy Monday!
Many Blessings!

How to melt your parents hearts 101: (and maybe even get a horse!)

1. Quietly create a VERY special surprise...

2. announce with GREAT joy and excitement,
"come here quick mommy and daddy!-
there's is something you MUST see!"

3. allow your mom to choose her age.
(I'm picking the "20"!-
that's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

4. leave her love notes with EXTRA kisses & hugs!

5. allow your Dad to choose his age too!
(I'm thinking he'll go with the "20" also!)

6. leave him a sweet note with LOTS of good manners used
AND a smiley face!

and there you have it!
"How to melt your parents hearts 101"
or A.K.A.-
two VERY happy 20 year olds, with melted hearts,
 probably about to buy ANOTHER horse!

Have a happy day!
Many Blessings!
