  2. Her goodness and love shine through! She is quite beautiful. How I miss my own Mom, who was also a 'shrunken fairy!' Yes, happy Mother's Day.

    1. Oh, Isis, thank you, and I am so sorry your mother is no longer with you. I feel so lucky for each year I have mine on this earth. She lost her own Mom when she was only 32, her father the following year, AND she was an only child, so I and I am so grateful I have been spared that kind of heartache.

    2. BTW, so cute that your Mom is also a 'shrunken fairy.' She came to be called that after an argument with my brother, who called her that as an insult. She (and we) laughed so hard, the argument was completely diffused, and the nickname stuck.

      Her other favorite nickname is The Angry Red Squirrel. :)

  3. I can see how both nicknames would apply ;)

    1. Thank you, Emma.

      The photo is a bit overexposed, but I have my suspicions she's a Soft Autumn. If she were a Soft Summer, I should think the silvery-blue gown would really light her up. Of course I made her up that day using warm makeup, so it's hard to tell, but she identifies with Autumn, always has. I have traumatic memories of her dressing poor little old summery me in rust and mustard and hunter green as a child when I begged for pink pink pink! ;)

    2. You're welcome, Zuzu.

      She looks warm toned. I agree about the silvery-blue color. Too bad you didn't get to wear pink. Mustard and rust and hunter green are not your friends.

    3. You can say that again! By the time I was in 5th grade, Mom had figured out that I looked best in lavenders and light blues, but when she shopped without me, she tended to buy me clothes whose colors appealed to her. So she knit or bought me a lot of warm cream sweaters and scarves, but every one in a while I'd get a purple or blue. I think pink made her want to vomit. :)

    1. Thanks, Liz! When I showed her this on Mother's Day, she so totally did not "get" the fact that the whole world can see her. lol My mother still has to ask my father to program the TV, and now that we have so much more technology, she sometimes can't figure out how to turn on and off various remotes.
