Happy Mothering Sunday

The traditional name for today is not Mothers' Day, but rather Mothering Sunday as it dates back to Victorian times when the people who worked at the 'big house' (and usually attended the local church with the Master and his family) would travel to the big church in the area (the Mother church) for today's service.

It was spring, and they knew they would see their mum for the first time maybe since Christmas, so they picked flowers along the way to give to mum

No picking today, but lots of making at Sunday school: I didn't get a photo of *all* of them, but thanks to Sizzix we made enough of these for everyone in the congregation, with these left for you!


Happy Mothering Sunday x



  1. Hope you were suitably spoiled! Since my mum's buggered off to India, she got her pressie just before she went, so it's all rather passe here ;o)

  2. Well done Benta, the flowers were brilliant and the kids interacted well with the whole service. Thanks for your inspiration and commitment.

    With my very best wishes,


  3. The flowers are wonderful! I hope you had a lovely day :)

  4. Pretty little posies. I bet they were well received. Hope you had a lovely day!

  5. Lovely flowers hope everyone appreciated them
