Mama


I promised a photo of my mother a while ago, and today I finally remembered to take her picture. She got this amazing dress yesterday at the Camas antique store after attending a presentation on proper tea etiquette. We both love going to teas, so today she was telling me all the new things she had learned, like laying your napkin on the back of your chair if you leave the table in the middle of the tea. I just love etiquette, it's a lost practice.
My mother is the kind of person who wears Chanel no. 5, and who's purse always matches her outfit. She also always wears heels and is the best baker in the world, a trait that seemed to skip me. So for inspiration I often look to my mother, she's just fabulous ;)

You have such a beautiful mom! :) That tea etiquette class sounds intriguing... I love going out for a proper, afternoon tea, and yet always feel so awkward because I don't completely know the proper etiquette!
