Blue is my mom’s colour

I made a card for mom before the summer started, to get her some “blue patterns” that I know she loves. She has actually bought some porcelain with these patterns. I really love them too, but they are not for me.

A card for mom. Blue of course, because that’s her colour.

Moms thrifted blue finds

What do you think, isn’t it great to combine all of these together?

Stompa, bread mom made on the stove. I love this, fresh bread. Mmm!

And when thrifting this style has also been in my mind, plus mom loves white lace too. Here are some of her finds drying in the wind outside:

My beautiful mom!


Blue rug
I’ve crocheted another rug, a blue one for my mother. The first one I made was mostly orange.

When I see blue I think of my mother, because when I was young blue was her only favorite color. Now I think she likes them all, she is in bloom!

  1. oh, how pretty those china patterns are, and I love the lace on the clothesline. I’m going to think about your journal idea, I haven’t written/drawn in mine lately. Beautiful blog~

  2. I think it?s lovely that you see your mother like this – she must be a special lady to have created such a bond with her daughter.

  3. Lovely card! Like your mum, I love blue and white china and pottery, and I like to mix them. My kitchen cupboard is a mish mash of white and blue dishes. I’ve been wanting to crochet a rug like that. Yours is beautiful.

  4. As always, beautiful photos Hanna! And I’ve never heard of it but that stompa bread looks delicious.
    Your mom seems like so much fun! Love the clips in her hair.

  5. Blue is my favorite color as well, and I love the images you have here. I also love what you said about your mother being in bloom—it brought a tear to my eye!
