Waiting for Easter Brunch

My mother always looks as if she just stepped out of a band box polished shoes and all. I wear most of my clothes rough dried :)

We were waiting for the phone to ring on Easter Sunday. Our friends invited us to their lovely Easter brunch and it was delicious. My mom is legally blind but still manages to look great. She is an inspiration at 91 years of age. She doesn't dye her hair either. I think she looks amazing!

i love the blackwatch tartan too, and the classic bass loafers. she has a very english face. would she be offended? i mean it totally as a lovely compliment!
only thing missing is the beloved head of webster nudging her hand.

Hi to your beautiful Mom.

I don't believe she's even reached her 80's.

Oh, your mother looks like a wonderful soul. A beautiful, beautiful face that shows kindness and great strength of character.
She looks so elegant and yes, her natural hair is a marvel.
You are so fortunate to still have your mum in your life at the regal age of 91!
I lost my mum when I was 23. Too sudden. Too soon. Before she was able to see her only child bring her only grandchild into the world. Before being able to share so many milestones in my life. I wish I could speak to her just once more.
Your love for her is evident in your posts. I'm sure you cherish every moment with your dear mother.
Thank you for sharing such beautiful images of her.

I love posts about your Mother! Absolutely agree that she looks fresh and always so well put together. She really prevails such a sense of calm and contentment = )Thanks for sharing.

what??? ARE YOU KIDDING? 91! No hair dye!

She looks fantastic. You are so so lucky to have your mother!!!

Sheesh! she does, indeed look fabulous....and elegant..

My hair is white......I had it dyed for years....(it started turning white when I was a sophomore in college at USC) Eeek.... no way!!!

(Southern California! not Santa Clara!!)

Now it is the color growing out of my head!

I adore this post......and your mother is gorgeous..such beautiful bone structure......such a lovely face!

You are a lucky duck! And a lovely and loving daughter!


ps (I am not looking for sympathy....just perspective..My Daddie died when I was four.....and My Mommie when I was 33!)

I am so grateful to have had such wonderful and unusual parents......but...just so you know......having your mother still alive is such a gift!

Please give her a HUGE KISS from me; and tell her I am your fan! And Thank you to her....for "rearing" such a "Star"!!!

Todas las madres son hermosas.
Tu mamá es una BELLEZA.
Tú y yo somos afortunadas por aún tenerlas.
Son fotografías increíbles.
Puedes por favor decirle que le mando un beso desde Guadalajara México? Eso me haría muy feliz :D
Un abrazo

Your mother looks so beautiful...made me think of my mother. I love her style. Thank you for sharing.

Greet Lefèvre said...

Oh dear! Your mum looks great!!! These are just wonderful pictures Rosemary!!
You are so lucky she is still with you!!

Sue said...

What an amazing lady... I'm a bit jealous of her hair though. I started graying at just 22. Though I swore I would never color, I just HAD to. That's far too young to be gray.

Wow! I think She looks amazing! Really!

Sunflowers With Smiles said...

Your mother does look amazing! She is blessed to have had such a long life also! Wow, she is 91 and she looks great! You are so fortunate to still have her in your life.

I love her style, Rosemary. I can tell she is a very classy gal. I love to see elderly women with their hair in a bun, like Katherine Hepburn. Always a classic. My Mother has macular degeneration. I assume that is your Mom's issue?

Stacey Snacks said...

I love this portrait of your mother with the red dog toy by her polished shoes. Tell her I said hello. xo

Bonnie said...

I agree with you she does look amazing.

I think these are my very favorite pictures that you have taken.

Your mom is absolutely beautiful, she radiates elegance and good manners. I'm sorry that her eye sight is so limited but my impression is that it has not kept her from enjoying life. I'm fascinated by the fact that her has not grayed unlike mine which has.

You are indeed fortunate and blessed to still have her in your life and she is blessed to have such a loving and caring daughter.

Good friends are a blessing too, how lovely that you have friends that included you in their Easter celebration.

YONKS said...

She is so incredibly stylish, we could all learn something from your beautiful elegant mum!

LANA said...

Your Mom looks elegant and lovely. My grandmother lived to 104 and did not ever go gray either. Her strawberry blonde hair just faded to a soft light brown.

Your mom is a real sweet heart, lucky you to have her this long. Mary

i love the thought of your quiet, healthy life together with your mum. i agree with everyone else - she's got a classic, elegant look. you are so lucky to have her and i'm sure she feels the same, having you so involved in her life. p.s. i love everything you post….interiors, exteriors, animals, art, prose, recipes….thank you for your blog.

Audrey said...

So beautiful. I read your blog often and have never, until now, commented. She reminds me of my grandmother, a very dignified, quiet lady.Emphasis on lady. These are gorgeous photographs that I am sure you will always cherish. I love your blog. It brings joy to me to see the beauty that you see and capture in pictures and also in your words.
