In case you are not prepared for the big day yet, (shame on you!) I’ve conducted a very serious study, to learn what the perfect Mother’s Day Gift for the Home is.
What is that quintessential THING, that all mothers want MORE THAN ANYTHING? (besides a day at the spa,…no kids invited?)
Well here it is…based on months of research, extensive polls, laboratory testing…..
JUST KIDDING! The only search I’ve done is based on my own personal WISHES. Here’s something I’d really love to receive, and it’s not too late to run out and get it!:
An assortment of cheerful floral cotton pillows-for the traditional Mom
These are from Pottery Barn, and they do a great job of making several very carefully chosen prints look as if they’ve been casually thrown together. the price is right, and the feather fillings are very good.
Or for the Mod Mom, Balanced Design makes these very beautiful, very eco friendly pillows: Green, organic and oh so modern!
Just the thing to add cheer and freshness to my house, and make me love being at home even more than I already do! Happy Mother’s Day!
Not ready for Valentine’s Day?!?! You procrastinators can still stay out of the dog house! Here’s how:
Start with a luxurious cashmere throw. Any good department store will have them. These are from Gracious Home. Combine that with a couple of Valentine’s Day classics, and you’ll be in good with your sweetheart!

Flowers will always make a fabulous, romantic Valentine’s Day gift. Especially the kind that last forever, like the ones in this outstanding, gigantic book of gorgeous botanical photography by award winning photographer Jonathan M. Singer.
I really hope you’re getting ready for Valentine’s Day. You’re running out of time!
For the romantically committed, the Met Store has this reproduction of a 17th Century Marriage Box. Laden with meaning, the engraved figures depict Trust, Hope, Prudence, Love and Tenderness. We girls love that stuff!!
Gift Idea of the Day: give a gift that is timeless and elegant
As a Valentine’s Day gift,this beautiful Venetian cut glass vanity mirror brings a message. It says: I think you’re beautiful and glamorous. The Mirror Lady has quite a few other beauties in this category, made to sit on top of a bureau or vanity. Very luxurious and romantic!
Having trouble expressing how you feel toward that special someone? Trixie Delicious, (also known as the Vintage Vandal) can help. This oh-so-sweet cup and saucer, becomes really quite saucy in Trixie’s hands. Your intentions will be made very clear!
Candles are of course traditionally romantic, therefore perfect for Valentine’s Day. But these by Barrick are a little more than just that. They’re elegant, modern, sculptural. Almost too good to burn. But go ahead…Valentine’s Day only comes once a year!
