Good morning. Hard to believe we are in May. I feel like before we know it we are going to be reminiscing about summer, how fast it flew by, and talking about Labor Day…..yikes! ? I wish we could press a pause button. In any case, next holiday as we all know is Mothers Day! I always try to come up with?something different for my mother other than the predictable outfit, or needlepoint pillows (one of her many loves). To me, fresh flowers are the best and ultimate gift. But if you are like me, you don’t stop there. I have gotten emails from happy customers (phew) that wanted my suggestions on Mothers Day gifts. A few even suggested this post, so here it goes. I am sharing my top picks from my little shop for Mothers Day. I am also offering guaranteed Mothers Day delivery on all orders placed by May 6th. Exceptions are the planter/statuary and canvas art as these are made to order and take 4 weeks. So, here’s my choices……..for that special mother or if you are like me, a little something for yourself! From my very popular silver line…..absolutely love this wine cooler/planter. I am in fact giving this very container to my mother in law filled with a beautiful orchid. When she eventually removes it, it can serve as a very elegant wine cooler/champagne bucket. Reminds me of something you would see being used in a grand hotel in Paris…….love it. Every lady could use a beautiful and elegant etched silver vanity tray either for a makeup table or on a bathroom vanity to place her perfumes. Another beautiful and popular little tray, this is ideal for a nightstand, to place your rings, watch, phone, lipstick,etc… This beautiful etched planter is stunning with an orchid, or with a few pretty guest/hand towels. Another very popular tray, so pretty for a vanity or bar Another larger planter with beautiful fancy scrollwork, imagine a gorgeous hydrangea plant in this! You haven’t heard…you cannot be too rich, too thin or have too much silver..lol! My European line is filled with all kinds of fabulous trviets, dough bowls and cutting boards that are either antique or made of reclaimed woods. Just fabulous for anyone who loves to be in her kitchen! I don’t think there is anyone who wouldn’t love to receive linens bearing their initial. I offer these fabulous guest towels, dinner napkins and cocktail napkins with an oversized single letter and fancy scrolling. Just got in a large order so most initials are ready to go! ?Such an elegant and feminine gift. The linen guests towels with a fancy single letter monogram Offered in ecru on white or white on white Beautiful detailing….. The hemstitched cocktail napkins are also really fabulous and great to have on hand Linen guest towels with fancy black monogram letter I always describe these incredible gardenia scented candles as my most favorite candle in the world.I discovered them at the Ritz Carlton and to anyone who knows me, this is the official scent of my home! Then to boot, they are poured into the most beautiful crystal hurricanes that serve as wonderful display objects when the candle is gone. A truly gorgeous gift! Porcelains…..adds instant beauty to any vignette. They are the perfect finishing touch even for those who have it all. Love the addition of Staffordshire dogs to any setting or a beautiful planter or a pretty little box to add to an existing vignette. Love this darling small tureen, the ormolu detailing is so beautiful I love these dogs!! They also come in a few fun colors like orange, blue, black. So elegant! And this beautiful little box which I sell like crazy is a perfect accent for any table/vignette Or this beautiful little box with the brass finial, looks gorgeous on a stack of coffee table books or as a pair on a table or console. This is a beautiful scalloped planter that is perfect given with a potted orchid or other flowering plant! Just got in these new flower vases, stunning! And for an avid book reader, how about a darling and very well priced pair of bookends! And finally the pewter line, Vagabond whose things are just incredibly beautiful, true heirloom quality. Just got a bunch in and I swear I wanted to kidnap each and every piece but I was good and promptly packed things up to go to their new homes!! Their items are just exquisite…… This might be me new favorite item….of course got one for myself. One of my new bestsellers! Check out the detailing! How adorable are these lab/hunting dog salt and peppers? Love them!!? I am in awe of the attention to detail…check out the trout in his mouth:) My little nut bowl in good use……love the little acorn scoop I want one of EVERYTHING!!!!! How about this amazing pear branch cheese board? Major swoon. Incredible attention to details… Say hello to the Rolls Royce of carving boards, pewter, wood and antler handles! And these polo player salt and peppers…..have to get a pair for myself. How about these English saddle napkin rings? This makes me want to have a derby party! I absolutely have a “thing” for pheasants…..these are just exquisite I am like a little girl with all my barbies, can’t stop touching them, playing with them and rearranging…..its an addiction! Also I wanted to tell you, that I ?just added a new tab on my online store entitled “Customers enchanted Homes” which is a place for me to post your pictures. I get sent a lot of pictures from happy customers who want to show me how they have used whatever they have bought from me, so it is my pleasure to post the pictures, and sometimes seeing something in a room as opposed to a stock photo gives a new perspective to said item. If you have bought something from the shop and want to share your inspiration, please send me a picture or you can upload it directly to my site, click here. Click on storefront to visit my store! Thanks as always for your patronage and support! Wishing you a fabulous day.
