WHW: Pansies

 It seemed appropriate to do a pansy post after the 10th anniversary of my mom's death.  My mom was a Tri-Delt in college and she loved it.  She continued to mentor college girls when she was well out of college herself.  Their official flower was the pansy and she used to collect pansy items.  Needless to say, after I lost her I ended up collecting pansy stuff myself.  Pansies were a common theme in antique embroidery, so I have quite a few pieces of linen, as well as some hankies, salt and pepper shakers, and whatnot.  Along with hydrangeas, they're my favorite flower.

I collect pansies too {my sorority flower=black and gold pansy}. They're such a happy flower and neat that they remind you of your mom.
