Hi and happy Tuesday to everyone! Gorgeous day out there but unfortunately I came home yesterday with symptoms of getting some kind of flu/virus. Doing my best to take good care and hope this is short lived, have so much on my plate this week starting tomorrow until Sunday I need to be 100%! First off Karena from Arts by Karena is giving away one of my chinoiserie tole lamps! You won’t want to miss it, so click here to enter the contest (winner to be chosen on Sunday) As spring is ticking on by,? I realized Mothers Day, May 10th,? is not so far away, and it’s time to start thinking about all the mothers in our lives and I always like to include a little treat for oneself afterall we work hard 365 days a year, we deserve a little something don’t we? Here are some ideas for gifts, that I personally would love to receive, some of which I have given or might be giving this year:) I thought I would share- (click on title of item if you want to be taken to that website for more info) IDEA 1. Love the idea of calling a local garden center and hiring them to go and plant flowers? or rose bushes or whatever strikes your fancy. I did this for my mom last year and it was such a nice surprise for them as well as being a gift that keeps on giving. IDEA 2. This darling, whimsical and very pretty Mckenzie Childs tea kettle would be sure to put a smile on any moms face, given with? a box of tea…wouldn’t this make a wonderful gift! IDEA 3.? Love this set of four beautiful bangles by Ashley Pittman, they are an exclusive by Ashley Pittman, so pretty and love that they would go with everything! IDEA 4.

Have long admired this beauty from Nest, now on sale at Bergdorfs.…for a mother who likes statement necklaces, cannot imagine a prettier one than this, also super neutral an seasonless! This is really beautiful in person. IDEA 6. I am a huge book lover, and believe there is always room on my book shelves for another great book.
