MY TOP 10 MOTHER'S DAY GIFT IDEAS- MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE


With Mother's Day just a few weeks away, it's time for a game plan!  Today I'm sharing my top 10 Mother's Day Gift Ideas.  You might be shopping for your own Mom or Mother-in-law, or you might just get a few ideas to pass along to your family for your personal wish list!  Many of my picks are customized or personalized, so I wanted to make sure you'd have time to order and receive them in time for Mother's Day.  (Or, if you order last minute like I too often do, a printed photo of the gift beautifully wrapped lets Mom know what to expect in the mail if it won't arrive in time.)  Many of these suggestions today are things I already personally own and love, so I think you will too.  (*This post may contain affiliate links, read my full disclosure policy here.)

1.  Child Silhouettes-  There are many different options available whether you want them printed, embroidered, cut from wood, etc. but I prefer the sweetness of hand cut silhouettes like these.   I had my children's silhouettes made many years ago, and they are some of my favorite pieces in my home.  I only wish I had done some when they were teeny-tiny as well!

A FEW THINGS... IT'S BEEN A WHILE!


Well hello there friends!  I know posts have been scarce here lately.  I feel like it's really been forever since I've had a regular 2-3x/week posting schedule, and I've missed you!  No major explanation other than we've been in an exceptionally busy season of life.  But, in reality, things are probably always this busy, I've just been stopping to smell the roses (or the ranunculus) a bit more and soaking up life away from the computer.

EASTER TABLESCAPE WITH SIMPLE GROCERY STORE FLOWERS CENTERPIECE


Hello there, friends!  This week has been busy as we prepare to host family and friends this weekend for Easter.  I set our table yesterday and wanted to share it with you.  This year I made our more formal Easter tablescape very simple, and kept things extra easy by picking up the flowers for the centerpiece at the grocery store.

14 TAKEAWAYS FROM THE "IT'S A COLORFUL LIFE" SPRING HOME TOUR GROUP


I love perusing virtual home tours.  Even if the home isn't quite my style or colors I prefer, there's always an idea here or there that I can glean to apply in my own home.  Our "It's a Colorful Life" Spring Tour just happened to be packed full of homes that love color and pattern like I do, so the ideas and inspiration were extra plentiful!  Today I thought I'd share one takeaway from each of the homes in our tour that I thought was a great idea and might be something you could do in your own home. Let me know in the comments if there was a particular idea that you picked up from one of the tours and want to implement in your home, maybe even something different than one I highlight!
