Happy Birthday Mom!

My mom's birthday is today!

While Vanessa and I were at the lapidary show we came across these candy jade faceted beads.

I remember a while back, Mom had called me and told me about 'These bracelets made with candy jade on 'the QVC'. Have you seen candy jade before?'

Well I had, but not very often. When I saw these at the show, I pointed them out to Vanessa and told her of me and my mothers conversation. She fell in love with them too. Vanessa bought 'em -gave me two strands and sed - "Make a necklace for your mom and tell her thank you for all the apple butter!"

I made it and sent it along with a note. She got it yesterday morning!

"I love it!" she says. "Me and your dad are going to the new casino and I am wearing it right now!"

It made my day to hear the excitement in her voice.

Happy Birthday Mom!


  1. My Mom's birthday was yesterday. So today I say: Happy Birthday, Tish's mom! :-) And I've never seen candy jade before.

  2. Happy birthday, Tish's mom! What a beautiful necklace! I've never had apple butter. But the idea of it is very appealing :P
