Give Your Heart To Mom This Mother’s Day

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, you might like a few creative ideas about what to get your mom this year that best captures your feelings.

"The Gift" by Julie Terrell, original acrylic painting

“The Gift” by Julie Terrell

This is an original acrylic painting by our relentlessly optimistic artist, Julie Terrell.  It has a wonderful message to express the gift your mom imparted to you: “The gift in life is that each day our heart blooms a bit more with each new dream, hope and love.” An excellent sentiment to celebrate Mother’s Day.

A lovely message on a 12″ x 12″ canvas. It’s painted on the sides, too, so no framing necessary.  Ready to hang.

Is your mom’s favorite color turquoise?  It’s the favorite of many a northwestern mom.  This versatile version can be worn as a shawl, as you see here. It’s also great as a scarf. Hand-painted in Sequim by Birgit Moenig. It’s a great way to show mom you pay attention to her favorite things. That in itself is a lovely gift for her this Mother’s Day.

Seafoam Chalcedony For Harmony

Chalcedony is found world-wide and in a variety of colors. Chalcedony is said to bring harmony as well as to ward away negative energy.

We just received a lovely collection from Seattle’s Mary Freiberger including these four pendants. The seafoam color looks pretty on all skin tones.

Whether faceted, like the one on the far left, or set in a bezel as a smooth cabochon like the other three, the beautiful glow in these stones are simply lovely.

Each is on an 18″ gold-over-brass chain. The two larger stones are enhanced with a pearl and a charm, which the smaller pieces have the single leaf charm.

Cape Blouse in Seafoam by Testimony Los Angeles

Here’s a perfect blouse for your new pendant. It’s the cape blouse from Testimony Los Angeles. This top can also be worn as a short dress by extending the inner sheath to its fullest length. The over-blouse is attached, and is very flattering as it hides all the little rolls you are striving to get rid of after our rainy winter.

Great Summer Hats

We just got a shipment of hats from Parkhurst. There are some lovely ones in here too! They are great for every day to enhance your personality. They are also wonderful for travel. Most are crushable or simply flatten down.

Another great benefit of these hats is they are very soft inside, making them an excellent choice for those experiencing hair loss from chemo or another medical condition.  They offer full coverage of your head and are stylish to boot.

This is the Rustic Wave Cloche, shown here in indigo.  It sits low on the head and is a very classy look.  The cloche style gained a big following in the 20s. Wear it with jeans and a T-shirt and turn your average outfit into something distinctive.

For those experiencing hair loss, this softly woven cotton fabric feels soft against the skin. A bit of spandex keeps it in place. Hats for hair loss are tough to find.  Your search ends here.

Also available in a wonderful red.

For those who prefer more of a brim, we have the Barbara Boater. The neutral sand color makes it extremely versatile. The black band has a small bow that is sewn flat against the side of the hat so it doesn’t stick out.  Very simple and classy.

This is another wonderful choice for those struggling with hair loss. Hats for hair loss are not only hard to find, they are often fairly unattractive.  Not so with Parkhurst hats.

And for travel, it collapses flat, while the plastic edge helps keep the shape of the brim in place.

The Sentinel Peak Hat, an update on the baseball cap style. Shown here in cargo, an olive green. Hats for hair loss
The Sentinel Peak Hat

For a classier update on the simple baseball cap style, check out the Sentinel Peak hat here.  It’s deeper than the traditional baseball cap, so you can wear it down low to cover all of your head.  Or style it like Manya did here, a bit higher up, then jauntily skewed to one side with the excess fabric on top folded over.

The extra wide brim is perfect for keeping the sun out of your eyes.

Yet another wonderful option in the hats for hair loss category.   Very soft against your skin, and pulling it low completely covers your scalp, yet you look very stylish.

Shown here in “cargo”, an olive green, it’s also available in navy blue, sand and black.

A classic, the Biscayne Bowler
A classic, the Biscayne Bowler

The bowler style hat is an age-old classic that never seems to ever really go away.  Why? Because it looks really good on just about everyone. This is a woven polyester hat that is crushable, making it an excellent travel companion.

Shown here in a lovely red, it is also available in black, tan and spring green. Or was, I should say. We only have one spring green in stock now. More are ordered! Give me a call if you want to reserve one for yourself!

There are several other styles in stock as well. Stop by to check them out and play a bit!
