Mother Dearest!

Celebration time, come on …

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”
Maya Angelou

A great quote from a great woman and a great mother herself…though she wasn’t so great with babies apparently, lets’ face it, her words of wisdom would have been wasted on such tiny shoulders!

To celebrate these special women I have named a few Venus Vases after some amazing mothers and will pop in free a little special dried posie tied up with satin ribbon with each purchase.

If you order one on the website email me with a message and her address and I will hand write a card and pop it in the post. Hurry though as it’s only two weeks away!

And the Mothers I have chosen are….

Josephine Baker who adopted 12 children of all nationalities
Marie Curie known as the mother of modern physics winner of Nobel prizes, one of which she shared with her daughter
Olympias mother of Alexander the Great
Emmeline Pankhurst mother of Sylvia and Christabel all movers and shakers for the suffragette movement
Michelle Obama great mother of two girls but inspirational to many others

Yummy nibbles too of course.

Spaces Limited, so early booking is advised.
