    Important Shipping Deadlines to Remember for the Holiday Season!

    Important Shipping Deadlines to Remember for the Holiday Season!

    Friends, country(wo)men- lend me your ears....

    We are in the HEAT of the holiday shopping season.  If you are like me, you have  a list as long as both of your arms detailing the packages you are expecting to receive in the upcoming days and weeks.  While gifts are NOT the reason for the season, they do add to the merriment, especially if you have children in your life. 

    Our friends at USPS, UPS and FedEx have given us some holiday shipping deadlines that it will important to adhere to this year. For regular shipping, FedEX and USPS say we need to order BY DECEMBER 15 to guarantee delivery for Christmas.  UPS has suspended delivery guarantees this year. There are more temporary workers than ever before in those organizations, and there are less drivers than in the past. This means they need more time than in the past to ensure your parcels arrive to you in time for the holidays. 

    If you are kind enough to shop small this season, please also remember that once a parcel leaves our hands, we no longer have control.  If something is lost in transit or delivered to the wrong place, please work with the carrier to locate your item or seek reimbursement.  

    Thank you for your understanding!  Please be patient and kind to all this holiday season, including the retail workers, online shopkeepers and delivery workers you encounter.  We appreciate you! 



    Give Mom the Perfect Gift This Mother's Day

    Give Mom the Perfect Gift This Mother's Day

    Mother’s Day will be here before you know it, so it’s time to start thinking about what you’d like to give your mom to show your love, honor, and respect for her. This is the perfect chance to let her know how much you appreciate everything she does for you, which is why it’s so important to choose the right gift. 

    Of course, because she’s a mom, your mother will appreciate anything you give her. Whether you choose for a hand made gift, some special time spent with her, or something a little more extravagant, as long as it comes from the heart, she is sure to love it. Here are a few amazing ideas to help you show her the love this Mother’s Day.

    Jewelry Organizer

    What mom out there doesn’t love jewelry and being organized? Here’s the perfect gift to help her with both. Not only is this jewelry organizer available in two colors to fit in with any décor, but it is also cute, high-quality, functional, and just the right size.

    Breakfast in Bed

    Surprise your mom with a well-deserved breakfast in bed. Let her sleep in and stay cozy by fixing her favorite breakfast for her and delivering it to her in bed. Fix something that she wouldn’t normally have time to fix on her own and then sit with her on her bed and chat for a bit while she enjoys the surprise. It’s sure to start her day off on the right foot.

    Recipe Box

    Does your mom love spending time in the kitchen cooking up her favorite recipes? Give her a place to store and protect those family treasures with this cute recipe box. It is available in white and stained wood and includes adorable recipe cards too. It is beautiful and functional and is sure to complement her kitchen décor when she sits it on the counter.

    Take Her on a Picnic

    We’ve all spent extra time in lockdown over the past year, so consider her taking her on a picnic for brunch or lunch if the weather allows. Put together a basket of all her favorite snacks and head to the local park, or even the back yard to enjoy the sunshine and her company. If the weather isn’t cooperating, consider setting up your picnic lunch in the living room floor and let her relive the days when you were young and she spent time playing with you in the floor.


    Most of the last 12 months has made it difficult to stay in touch, and even if your mom is able to get out and about again, who doesn’t love receiving a good old-fashioned note in the mail? Whether your mom is sending friends or family a note, congratulating a colleague, or thanking a pal, these cute note cards will complement her every word. These eye-catching designs are perfect for any occasion and will inspire smiles from the sender and receiver!

    Do Some Chores for Her

    Every mom has chores she doesn’t enjoy doing, whether it is the laundry, dishes, or picking up some groceries. Give her a hand and let her have the day off by taking those chores off her plate for the day. Let your mom have the rest and relaxation she deserves by lightening the load for her on this special day.

    The Ultimate Christmas Gift Guide for Moms

    Let’s just be clear from the very beginning: Mom does not want those lotion and bath gift sets you’ll see prominently displayed at every store.

Each page has prompts, so children ages 7 to 107 can enjoy this keepsake communication with Mom. Best of all, this gift is perfect whether you live in the same house or on opposite sides of the globe.


    Jewelry Organizer

    Available in multiple finishes, this beautiful jewelry organizer is sure to be a hit! Mom will finally be able to untangle all those necklaces and find that matching earring. Plus, she’ll have an organized place to keep nail polish, perfume, and other accessories on the cute shelf. Pair it with a new bauble or an offer to install it for her and your gift is complete!

    For the crafty mom, this convenient little sewing station will quickly become her favorite gift. It includes a pin cushion, a slot for sewing scissors, and plenty of storage inside for thread, measuring tape, buttons, and any other tools Mom might want handy. She’ll enjoy this pretty little sewing assistant and you will likely get to enjoy the resulting projects!


    Bathroom Humor

    If Mom has a sense of humor, and especially if she’s potty training or surrounded by boys, these bathroom signs are a necessity. If you really want to impress her, you’ll also include an offer to clean the bathroom, though you can also just have them framed and ready to go. Either way, she’ll definitely appreciate these signs. This one might just make dad giggle, too!
