Mother’s Day, and a Hutch.

Me and my girls

I hope all you Moms had a wonderful day on Sunday! My kids and hubby were super sweet to me for Mom’s Day…I was woken to my favorite breakfast in bed with scrambled eggs, grapefruit, and coffee. I received beautiful poetry from Kassidy, a really cool Facebook post from Chloe, and a hand sculpted clay bowl with a momma bird and her eggs, meticulously painted and dried, from Kate. We got ready, went to church, came home, and prepped food to celebrate my wonderful Mom with a family BBQ. It was a fabulous day!


Every year I like to “give” something to myself for Mom’s Day. It usually requires a bit of effort, and is far from a pedicure or a massage. This year, my gift to myself was to refinish this thrifty Craigslist hutch that I brought home several weeks ago. It turned out very farmhouse-y and rustic; like the modern farmhouse style I’m working on here, (since I’ve always wanted to get out of the city and live in the country).  I started and finished the hutch on Saturday so that I could stare at and enjoy it on Mother’s Day. I’m weird like that. I will be back to share the completed farmhouse hutch soon! (pssst…I’m working on a downloadable step by step tutorial.)

  1. Christa, giving a gift to yourself for Mother’s Day is a brilliant idea. This gift — the finished hutch — would have been finished eventually anyway, but you are brilliant for making the project a special-day gift for your eyes. And your soul. Way to go, girl!

    My Mother’s Day gift to myself was an hour’s walk on the beach before/during and after sunset. Another gift for my eyes. And my soul.

    Guess we think alike!

    Love, CAC
