Things Mom Always Told Me

The other day I was at work when things were kind of slow and so I made the rounds of the shop to see what needed replenishing, rearranging, redoing or reconsidering. I spotted this sign that was all but hidden among quilts, frames and other goodies. I thought to share it with you…maybe some of it will resonate with you as it did with me.

Things Mom Always Told Me…

Don’t bite your nails.

If you’re sick just get up and go to work anyway; you’ll feel better.

Don’t slouch.

Take your iron supplement. You look pale.

Zip your purse.

You don’t need more than 4 hours of sleep.

Get the hair out of your eyes.

Stay away from horizontal stripes.

Don’t be jealous, it isn’t ladylike.

Write thank you notes.

Knowing how to roast red peppers will impress more people than you think.

Everything tastes better by candlelight.

Unexpected gifts are the most appreciated.

….and I saved the best for last:

If you must leave a party without a good excuse, spill something on yourself.

Thanks Mom!
