happy mother's day everyone!
well, here we have the magnanimous ruth cutforth: full of vibrant joy and exuberant laughter, always wore at least 3 sparkling rings on meticulously manicured fingers, a sensible yet fashionable frock, a giant purse full of goodies for her grandchildren (and maybe a few for herself) and constantly sported an impeccable perm. my grandma was a total fashion inspiration for me growing up. although i believed her clothes to be outdated when i was a kid (FOLLY!), i was always in awe of her classic choices and attention to detail. (seriously, i don't think i ever saw her with a broken or unfiled nail in my life.) i was lucky enough to be given a few of her frocks, which i altered to fit me and will forever cherish! love you my wonderful gammy!
for my amazing momma (who can be seen looking adorable in the 2nd and 5th pictures on the far right): a picnic basket with red pepper jelly and cheese knife from old faithful, as well as some camembert, brie and dark chocolate. eventually she will need someone to help her eat them, at which point my schedule will be clear i'm sure.
