One Moo -- My Mom


Yes, this is my mom. Since I only had one mom, I just went with one moo this week. Of course the theme at Make a Moo or Two was Mother's Day. After I decided to use my mom's picture I tried to think of what her favorite color was. I wasn't sure, but I do remember her saying when she married she wanted her kitchen to be red. I still have her red canisters from that kitchen.
I also included the "family" definition which was what my mom (a wife in the '50's )wanted more than anything -- to raise a family.
The picture is at a bit of an angle in order to show the "A" which stands for Alice, her name. Because of the gold in the lettering it wouldn't show up trying to shoot it straight on and wouldn't scan at all.
