My mom’s tablecloth she received as a wedding present 1950’s era. It’s all hand embroidered. She used it a lot on a charming white round table with the most adorable white wooden chairs. This Antique English Tureen Lavender Transferware with Flowers my Gramma gave me, it was her mom’s my Great Gramma’s. Mommie ( my great gramma) loved the colors pink and purple! I have wonderful memories just looking at these small reminders of my family. Everyone wants to be remembered and thought of with love! Forget me not! *Vintage Heirloom Embroidered Linen *Happy Mother’s Day! xo

If you too are curious of the saying “Forget-me-not”.
“Forget-me-not, O Lord!” is what a poor German knight shouted as he fell into a river. He and his lady were picking flowers by the side of the river at the time, no doubt enjoying the beautiful day around them, and yet as fate would have it, the knight’s armour dragged him down to the bottom as he fell in. Upon his cries to the Lord, he threw the blue posy of flowers to his loved one and promptly drowned. This little tale reportedly dates to around the 15th century, but no doubt had different permeations along the way, as romantic stories often do. Hence, the concept of remembrance, eternal love and faithfulness grow from this.” – : http://artofmourning.com
