Happy Birthday, Mom!

It's my Mother's birthday today! Happy birthday Jackie Baer!

Jackie is an artist, a professional photographer, and just a wonderful open-hearted and open-minded person who loves to have fun.

Whatever form of art she decides to try her hand at, she excels in.
For instance, this summer she decided to try one of my favorite kinds of art, the art of gluing found and collected objects.
She made this table she calls "The Garden of Good and evil".

Here's some close-ups:

You should also see her photography, the jewelry she makes, the teddy bears she sews, her drawings and her paintings!

I consider myself extremely blessed to even know Jackie, never mind the fact that somehow I won the golden ticket and landed on this earth with Jackie and Gene as my parents!

I love you Mom, happy birthday!

I feted her over at MyHo -- you know, that, well, first I got to Google spot -- but I see she hasn't been there in forever. Guess she got over her mermaid fixation, waaah!

I was on time there, but late here. Happy Birthday, anyway, Jackie!
