With Love: Mother’s Day Gift Suggestions

May flowers, fun in the sun travel finds, colorful accessories and someone’s in the kitchen baking with Mom gadgets to celebrate and commemorate Mom make this year’s Mother’s Day gift suggestions list.

Once a theme is established the special attention to Mother’s Day gift details fall into place.  Take the following for example.  After playing this fun in the sun and sand video, who wouldn’t be inspired?

Beach weather is here for some, right around the corner for others.  A day of, weekend getaway or week long fun in the sun vacation makes a big splash for Mother’s Day gift suggestions giving.  Wrap up these stylish travel adventure-fun in the sun and sand gifts and Mom is good to go.

Appeal to the whimsical style and the sand and sun aspect of Mother’s Day gift suggestions by presenting Mom the Life’s a Beach Throw Pillow by Beachcrest Home as a Mother’s Day card.

Pearls have long been a traditional choice of Mother’s Day gift.  I particularly like the new traditional style of this Four-Strand Baroque Freshwater-Pearl Necklace from Kenneth Jay Lane.  Classic style with a new trad twist.

Black Friday Cyber Monday Finds Show and Tell

Holiday shopping season 2016 is in full on attention shoppers swing, and I am as guilty as the next savvy consumer who appreciates a fantastic deal. Since Places In The Home is all about the design and decorating show and tell, I thought an overview of the black Friday cyber Monday finds I snagged appropriate.

 

black Friday cyber Monday finds

Am I the only one who is totally confused about what day of the week it is? My Black Friday shopping excursion began Wednesday afternoon, and continued into the wee hours of Thanksgiving Thursday morning.  No sooner had I carved the bird, than the Cyber Monday sales were live and beckoning to me to get in on the savings. Spending a good deal (ha!) of time shopping online proved fruitful, but it also was the culprit in me kinda- sorta losing all track of time.  With all the black Friday cyber Monday finds excitement this deck the halls decorista may need a cocktail.

How is it no one ever seems to lose track of cocktail time?

Hmm.

I shared with you all a post or two ago that I love to give and receive the gift of home.
