Pay Homage To Those Wonderful Gals ..

Thursday, May 7, 2009
Mother's Day will soon be upon us so I felt it fitting to post a little something about it. I think the best gift I ever recieved on this day was from my oldest son. He was 5 at the time and in kindergarten. I remember picking him up after school that day and he came running out to me with a huge smile on his face. He handed me a card he had made for me and a broach. The card was rather sweet with a nice poem glued to one side and some artwork on the other .. The broach was a story all it's own. It seemed the class wanted to make jewelery but as typical 5 year olds, they did it with an interesting twist.

My son presented me with a very colorful piece of melted plastic with a pin fastened on the back. I'd say it is about the size of a tomato slice with every color imaginable swirling around the surface. From what I understand, they made thier jewelery then melted it in an oven to make jewelery goop. From there, they added a broach pin and let them harden lol ...

It is, without a doubt the most interesting piece I own and definetely my favourite as it was something that came from the heart of a 5 year old boy. It's been 7 years since I recieved that gift and it still sits in my jewelery box today.
