Happy 70th Birthday Mom!

What do you get a mom who really doesn’t need anything but is turning the BIG 7 0 and you want to make it a special day with a special gift? I feel we have exhausted the usual perfume and candies and needed something extra-ordinary! I went out looking with absolutly no luck.  But when I got home I got an idea and I think she will love what I came up with. Although a smile might not initially come, at least I know it will mean something to her. I made her this special, one-of-a-kind candle holder.

My Dad - Passed away a year ago.

My very young handsome dad - 1958

He is the light of her life!

Tutorial coming soon!
