Good Morning Magnolia!

My mother-in-law, who passed away in 2015 from Alzheimer’s Disease, loved flowers.  She could make anything grow, even flowers and plants that she would give to me and I would seemingly kill, she would bring them back to life.  She had a beautiful yard full of flowers...that included a HUGE magnolia tree.   June 6th… Continue reading Good Morning Magnolia!

Simple Stamping
