I get all of my old-person sayings from my Mom; things like "That smarts!" and "Who's that tall drink of water?" Like me, my Mom isn't exactly up with the times, but one technological phenomenon she has embraced wholeheartedly is Pinterest.
So, in honor of her birthday I'm pinning a piece of personalized art she drew in art class and gave me at Christmas. She said the little figurine reminded her of me. I suppose a little Amish girl reading a book in a corner is pretty accurate of how I was as a child. I don't think I sat on a crate, but who knows...we didn't have money.
I love the way little Amish Amber pops in the bright frame. Happy Birthday, Mom. You've been pinned.
