Her Mother's Daughter...

My three gorgeous daughters will always be seen by me, as my greatest accomplishment. This week my youngest has passed her driving test, started her first full-time job (she's on a gap year) and has been rehearsing in-between times for auditions for drama schools and university courses (the first of which is next week.)  
Although I take no credit for her academic acumen - she gets most of that from her daddy - as she celebrates another Birthday later this month, I feel happy that I have set her out into the world with some good principles for life.
She'll happily paint and revamp vintage furniture for her bedroom, to suit her style and budget...
She paints her own murals too...
And canvases for her walls.
She's even been known to create a whole house from twigs!
Much of her wardrobe has been amassed from Charity shops...
Her latest shoes were an unworn pair for £3. 
She can always be guaranteed to put an outfit together and look beautiful.
Added to that, the other day I caught her cutting open the plastic mayonnaise bottle, to retrieved the last dollop from the neck...before it got washed up and put in the recycling bin...

My work here is done :)

(I know you never really stop being a Mum, but its nice to ease-off and relax a bit now and then!)  

Have a lovely evening,

Made by me, a Christmas wreath fashioned from a rusty garden sieve and ivy from my garden.
