Surprise Mom this Mother’s Day with a unique, handcrafted gift she is sure to treasure for years to come. Last year, we put together suggestions for gift giving in our Mother’s Day Gift Guide (read it here).  For 2012, here are some gift ideas and suggestions for all the Moms in your life!


Instead of flowers, give Mom a gourd from our Wild Flower Collection. The large gourds light up and the small gourds have been crafted into a small vase.

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.” – Abraham Lincoln.
Surprise your angel Mother with Fern the garden angel, or one of the angels from our angel collection.

Our Bungalow Birdhouse will make a lovely addition to Mom’s garden! We offer many different birdhouse varieties and colors.

Is Mom a cat lover? A gourd from our Tabby collection might be the perfect gift to warm Mom’s heart.

Give mom a gift handmade or handpainted by YOU! This Saturday, May 5th, we will be holding three workshops at our Retail Store in Carlisle, PA as part of our May Faire Event. Participate in one of these classes to make a truly one-of-a-kind gift. For more information on our May Faire Event click here.
