  2. Such a wonderful way to remember your mother. So sweet!!

  3. This is such a wonderful simple pleasure...And something that warms your heart!

  4. Glenna, this made me all warm and fuzzy inside. Such a sweet simple pleasure. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

  5. This hits home for me. I lost my sweet mother 7 years ago and it is so nice to have certain items that remind me of her. Blessings to you and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

  6. beautiful Glenna. What great memories.

  7. This is wonderful -- I have a shirt of my grandmothers that is sealed in a ziploc bag. Every so often, I'll take it out and smell it. I'm transported back into her arms every time.

  8. That's just beautiful. I'm so glad for you that you have not only the picture but that wonderful fragrance to share as you remember your mom.

  9. Glenna that is so beautiful. I understand. How precious are the things which unite us to dear ones! I have similar Avon things from my MIL who passed away 11 years ago. The fragrances make her seem closer for me too :-)
    joy in Christ..Trish

  10. What a treasure. I have several photos that are great memory triggers. Your mention of fragrance reminded me of the Jean Nate fragrance my great grandmother always kept in her bathroom. I loved that scent! Merry Christmas!

  11. So, so beautiful - what a tribute to your Mom's love that she is always with you in her fragrance. May you have a blessed Christmas with you and your family.


  12. How beautiful. I keep a photo of my Mother beside my bed and always look at it and treasure the memories that flood back. A sweet simple pleasure. Merry Christmas to you.

  13. Thanks for sharing this relationship you have with your Mum. Death does not take the wonders of love given and received.

  14. Isn't that wonderful how a smell can bring back cherished memories?

    I have an old jar of Dippity Do hair setting gel that reminds me of my grandmother's house. It was hers.
