I don’t know about you but Mother’s Day really snuck up on me this year. And I am a Mom! But fret not my friends, Love, Me is stocked up with fresh, fun and sweet treats for Mama.
Pretty posies for the romantic mama – The adorable handhooked pinbacks make a great perk-up to the Spring Coat! Maker Alicia Steeves dropped off a new batch of her handhooked Posies just in time for Mother’s Day. Drawing on her love of flowers, (she’s a florist by day) rug hooking and other crafts, Alicia has created the some amazingly beautiful pinback brooches, hairbands, and hairclips in classic flower shapes.
Birdie Brooches for the natural Momma – Naturally dyed teeny tiny fabric bird brooches made by local eco designer Onecia. Pam “Onecia” Johnston uses the remnants from her fashion line to create both teeny bird hanging “ornaments” and brooches.
Shibang sophistication for the arty chic Mom – Robyn Stephens, aka Shibang, makes colour and texture pop on her signature grey cotton and/or wool bags, clutches, pouches and coin purses. Whether momma is contemporary modern or eclectic arty, she will get a Happy Mother’s Day bang from her Shibang. (If “purses” aren’t her thing – she makes a beautiful iphone (blackberry) or ipod case.
Cupcake soap for the sweet and girlie Mumsie – Perfect for the momma who rarely gets or takes a minute to herself (nevermind a twenty minute bath soak). Give her a cupcake soap and a “take a break” card. These soaps are so cute and delicious smelling you will want to snack on these babies. And if you did, while there would be some serious indegestion, they are calorie-free!
Heart mug or bowl for the morning (or not) Mum – I can only offer these adorable locally crafted pottery mugs and bowls (with cute hearts!!) for purchase. It is up to you to make her breakfast in bed with her new goodies.
The sentimentalist – because as Moms (or Grandmas) we can never have too many pictures of you or little notes of love. Put them all in a wee album that can be carried in her purse. Local paper wonder woman Double Happiness makes a few different sized (yet still compact) albums perfect for pics and love notes.
A kitchen (office, hallway) chalkboard for the busy bee Momma – which is pretty much describes every Mom. These locally sourced and produced chalkboards are nice and big and ready for you to proclaim your love for your mom and for her to write out the many many many to-do lists.
And then of course there is the other awesome 150+ products in the store she’d love.
