home with mom

My Mama keeps q-tips in a champaigne glass in her bathroom. This is not odd. She also keeps tiny marbles and shampoos from motels displayed because they are "her colors." I call her a bit obsessive but even in an ocean of plum and sage green, it is still immaculately clean. How can she do this? Why are there no leaves in the pool? Why are even the paper towels special because they have grapes on them? I will never know but it makes her happy and the old saying stands firm that if Mama is or is not happy...well, you know.
