I have decided to help all of you out with
what to buy mom for Mother's Day this year.
But, I am going to approach it
in a very selfish manner.
I am going to share selections based on things I love.
After all, I'm a mom,
I love gifts.
Love this sign.
K and I are are both teachers, so this is our mantra!
Visit Stacy's shop, InMind4U
Absolutely adore Hoop Art.
So rustic, so in touch with nature.
Carolyn Manning at fuzzystitches
is so talented!
I need to learn to stitch!
offers this antique
tin hand-painted wall plate.
I am hooked on birds.
Have been since I was a little girl.
(This shop is in England)
Ok, so we are moving fast from
small, sweet, homemade gifts to
a miniature home.
But I can explain.
This shed, by Cape Cod Sheds, could house a myriad
of tasks. I could craft in it. Write in it. Dream in it.
We could use it to dry lavender and garlic.
(I mean you could...or your mom...wink wink)
Cost: Hmmmmm...not sure...
probably out of my budget....but maybe not out of yours!
Your mom, wife, sister would love this!
I am in love with these bands!
And so would any mom.
Hand-stamped by Cinnamonsticks,
your kiddos names...or mom, dad and the kids....
so many options!
18.00 per band
My go to every summer forever.
Comfy, stylish, perfect with
jeans, shorts, skirts, swimwear.
A funny movie is always a good gift.
Something's Gotta Give
is one of my favorites.
I actually managed to watch almost the whole movie
one afternoon when K took the kids on some errands. Of course, when they pulled back
into the driveway, Diane Keaton was buck naked.
Another unfinished movie.
Usually I fall asleep before the end.
So maybe the movie, and
time to watch it would make a great gift.
Of course, I would take Diane Keaton's entire wardrobe from this movie as well.
Or at least one of her white turtlenecks, or the cardigan from the beach scene.
I'm just sayin'....

Another personal favorite
is comfy bedding.
Bedding that makes you want to stay in bed all day.
(or go to bed really early).
These pretty embroidered hem pink pillowcases
are from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture.
Rachel knows how to do it right.
I have worshipped her shabby chic style for many years.
So there you have it,
my top picks for Mother's Day 2013.
I hope I have helped you with your shopping...or have helped you add a few things to your list !
