Moms and Spiders

My sister (mom of the niece) doesn't like spiders. I'm OK with spiders (I mean, I don't want them to jump on me, but I'm OK with them.) However, I'm not at all fond of snakes. I'm hoping we don't pass on these fears to the niece. To do my part, the last time I was visiting the family, I played with plastic snakes. Not my idea of fun, but an aunt's gotta do what she's gotta do! I'm trying to be a positive role model. In an attempt to help my sister along (hee hee), I recently gave my niece the cutest little book, Miss Spider's Tea Party (Counting Book). It's a story about a spider who wants to hold a tea party. All the bugs are afraid of her, but it has a happy ending. It's also a counting book.

In other Mother's Day news, I picked up this vintage Mother's Day tea card on ebay recently. I'm sending it out to the spirit of motherhood in all of us. Happy Mother's Day! A special hug to my mom, and to Evelyn & Jack's mom.

Thank you for the card and many thanks for sending your niece the new book. Grandma has only had to read it a dozen times so far:) I'm so thankful for my two beautiful daughters and my beautiful granddaughter, a mother couldn't have it any better. I am so blessed.

Wonderful card Steph. I was ok with spiders until I saw the move Aracnaphobia (spelling?) OMG that did me in for sure.

I love your re-designed red T-Shirt. You are very crafty indeed!

That looks like a cute book. Another one that I like very much is Mr. Putter and Tabby Pour The Tea. The vintage card is very pretty.

Miss Spider's Tea Party is a favorite around our house. Bub is always so perplexed by "Eight teacakes sat without one bite." Who can resist cake?!
