A post for my American followers!

Well mothers day here has been and gone but in America is still approaching ( 13th May). So here is a post for all my American followers for ideas of Mother's day gifts for someone who wants something unique for their mother. All the items below are either vintage or handmade and therefore are supporting independent sellers.

A beautiful poster made by Amanda Helmer. Her shop is beautiful and deffinatly one to take a look at!

A dozen paper flowers by Flower Thyme they can even be delivered gift wrapped and with a personalised message for no extra charge.

 How about a wonderful vintage candle stick. This piece has wonderful understated beauty and would look great both in a modern house or a house that favours the shabby chic look.

A beautiful handmade Sweetheart cocktail dress. The dress is made from lycra so it shows off the figure and the cut  is really flattering. Made by Onor.

 These fabric covered earrings are perfect colours for the spring and pastel colours are in this springtime. Would make a lovely mother's day gift....or you could just keep them for yourself!!

Mums (or should I say moms !?) need pampering too!! This body butter by Paradise Bath Boutique is wonderful at getting rid of tired winter skin and is a great way to spoill your mother.

I hope you have enjoyed this selection of gift ideas for your mother's. Please support independant sellers by buying something unique and handmade or fabulous and vintage this mother's day. A huge thank you to ewe and me yarns for putting this collection together

  4. Thank you for your lovely comments

  5. So, you don't have a mothers day in the UK anymore? For Germany it's same day as for the US.
    Lovely finds and a lovely blog.

  6. Nauli- Thanks for your lovely comments. We do still have mothers day in the U.K but on a different day to the US , Germany etc...not sure why!

    I have a German friend who lives in England and she said it made her go into a panic that she had forgotten mother's day for her mother but turns out it is just because the English mothers day is much earlier (just to be extra confusing!!)


Please leave me a comment (it makes me smile!)

Thank you!
