Pink Saturday In Loving Memory of My Mom

Hello to all my Pink Saturday friends,

I have not been around for awhile, do to the passing of my mother on April 24, Easter 2011.
 So..... I have been in southern California for the past 8 months taking care of my mother up until she passed away. Now I am still here going through 48 years of arts, crafts and collectibles, and having lots of fun doing so. She saved everything. Later on I will share with you some of her treasures. 
But this Saturday I am sharing with you my Mom's beautiful Pink casket, with Pink flower embellishments around the sides. Pink was her favorite color too.
 
This is the seed pack design I created. I filled them with seeds from her garden and passed them out to the guest at her Celebration of Life.
I designed a matching thank you card that I sent to guest and those who sent flowers.
This is me and my two daughters. Of course I'm the one in Pink.
To see more PINK SATURDAY participants....hop over to Beverly's at


ENJOY!
Jany

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. I lost my mom 8-1/2 years ago and I still pick up the phone to call her.

I, too, have not been blogging. I lost my precious husband on 4/25, due to a stroke -- totally unexpected! I feel your pain.

I've never seen a pink casket before, but why not? Your seed packets are gorgeous and a fabulous idea. Sorry about your mom's passing, I'm sure you have wonderful memories of her. Happy Pink Saturday!

What a sweet tribute to your mother. I think the pink casket is absolutely the prettiest one I have ever seen. How appropriate for a lady lover of pink. You and your daughters look beautiful in the picture. I know you are all so sad to lose such a dearly loved and special person, but your celebration of her life is a wonderful way to give her that one last gift. Thanks so much for sharing these dear photos with us. Take care. Genie

Jany,First,let me offer my condolences. I know something of what you are facing. My sister and I lost our mother on Saturday before Easter.
we tried to personalize her services to reflect her unique personallity and talents. I have been going through pictures and cards and this Sunday at our family reunion, many of my cousins will be getting packets with their birth announcemants, wedding invitations, their children's and even grandchildrens' birth announcements along with old black and white pictures of vacations and Christmas parties.
Having so many wonderful memories has helped during these sad days.
I enjoyed your comments on the deer...you say they like banana peels? Hubby can't wait to try offering some to our little herd.
Thanks for the Pink saturday visit and again, my sympathies are with you.

Take care,
