Fall/Thanksgiving Arrangements

I decided to make a few fall arrangements this weekend.  There is a story behind the flowers I used in the arrangements.  My mother passed away from cancer 2 years ago this month.  She lived at our house with us during her last month or so of life.  She was on hospice and basically unresponsive for about  3 weeks.  During that time, I decided to make her casket spray.  It was a very emotional time and making that spray for her casket was the last thing I ever got to make for her.  I have kept it in storage for the last 2 years and decided that I needed to do something with it.  So here is what I put together with some of the flowers. 

Dining room table decoration. I still have to sew up my table runner. 

Kitchen wall decoration


This was the spray on Mom's casket.

    1. Christy -- You were busy putting together the bird puzzle while I was doing this. Hope glued that puzzle together and still has it. Sad time for us all -- but we knew what God had in store for mom and we know where she is now!

  2. So sorry you lost your mother. The flower arrangement is beautiful.

    1. Thanks, Danice. She was a wonderful person and I miss her so!

  3. Awesome job as always, Cathy! I think of you often but moreso this month. We both lost our Mom's within weeks of each other. Love you girl! Tammy

  4. I've never seen a casket spray that can compare. I'm sure your Mama would be pleased that you have re-purposed the beautiful flowers. Good job, my friend.
