My mother’s nickname was Mirrie, but we called her Mammie.

My mother was very musical, she played the piano, organ and sang beautifully. Here she is conducting a choir.


My mother was a self-taught artist, She painted under the name Mirra. I am fortunate to have a few of my mother’s paintings and photos of most. Here are some of her paintings.

“Pansies” (Gesiggies)

One of my favorite toys as a child were Paper dolls. My mother made my first paper-dolls, I remember they were very beautiful, but unfortunately they didn’t last long.

Some of mom’s jewelry, I think she liked purple.

Happy mother’s day Mom.


    • I am very fortunate. I like it as well, which got me thinking, it is a pity I don’t have any photos of her playing piano, but I found a photo of my mom sitting at the piano 😉 I’m scanning it now. I did an old Sidey challenge about Paper dolls and I didn’t think to add the video for “Paper Doll” ♬ ♭ ♮ ♩ ♪ ♫ ♯


I would ❤️ to hear from you.
