Mom Love

I know there are lots of fantastic moms out there in the world but I happen to be partial to my own and think that she's the best!!  So happy  Mother's Day Mom!!  I hope you enjoy your gift.
(We didn't get to see each other yesterday so she just has to ogle here over her surprise in a jar until we get together again.)

 I taught myself to crochet last weekend and this jar topper was the very first thing I finished.  (I got the inspiration from this post from Lilley Stiches.) 

Since I didn't want to just give my mom another jar of canned green beans or jelly (she's had enough I'm sure), I decided to tuck a little surprise inside and use the jar as a sort of gift wrap.

"Bottled with love for MOM (you're unforgettable)"
(a great printable from here)

After the jar is opened she can use the jar topper for a different sort of decoration...or whatever you do with little crochet goodies.

I can't wait to give it to you mom.  Love you!!


  1. Oh, sure. "I was just sitting around with nothing to do, so I just taught myself how to crochet. You know how it is." That's so awesome, Holly. And I'm sure that your very awesome Mom will love it!

  2. Holly,
    What a truly amazing person you are! I tried several times to learn to crochet and even had my Granny to try to teach me. She was a saint in the church, but told me that I would make a preacher cuss! The jar is beautiful and I am very excited about seeing it in person. Thank you so much for being you! I am so proud to be your mother! Love, Mom
