This morning I took a few minutes to visit a few dear friends blogs. While peeking in at Mary Jane Lee's blog, she posted about a 'Tickled Pink' platter she received on a recent 'Sisters on the Fly' (which we are both members of) outing. I could hardly wait to tell her about my collection of Tickled Pink.

But while photographing my collection of Tickled Pink I found myself looking at each piece and and then looked over at the set of Rosenthal dishes that my dear mother passed on to me. She knows how much I cherish these pieces and wanted me to enjoy them now and not wait till she passes from this life to be with our Heavenly now I have these "Memories" in my home to enjoy, well minus a few pieces which one of my precious 4-legged fur babies accidentally's ok, because a wonderfully talented friend took the broken pieces and made a mosaic picture frame for me out of those broken pieces. The pieces may be broken, but the memories are not.

My mom is such a dynamic lady, at 74 she is a whirlwind of energy and just enjoys life to the fullest. She is so very active, I can only hope that I have 1/2 as much spunk as she when I am her age....I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I inherited her sister, Suzan and I joke that twixt the 2 of us we stilled don't have the energy mom has!

Memories are sooo very special,,,,they can take us places that we often forget about in our everyday hectic lives,,,,thank goodness for a simple teacup that makes us stop for a moment and cherish our memories, and on that note I am going to go call my mom..

So, have you talked to your mother lately?

Tata-4-now & have a memory filled day, after all, today's activity will be tomorrows memory so make it a cherished one.



  1. Oh Yes! This is SOME of the Tickled Pink I saw when visiting you in June! I LOVE your collection! Lucky you because they are hard to find! The pieces that your mother gave you are precious! Now you need to post a picture of the picture frame your friend made you! I have seen it and it is gorgeous!!!


  2. Talk to your mom as often as you can, while she is around! My mom passed away 2 years ago and I miss her, miss talking to her and asking her questions etc.
