What Mama Wants!

We don't really do Mother's Day gifts around here - we're not really big gift people - but I pulled together a fun little list if I were to do a little day dreaming...

No1 | A Floral Blue Tablecloth - Perfect for me to try to actually live out all my beautiful dinner party and lingering family lunch dreams.

No2 | The most adorable Custom Cutout Paper Silhouette of Virginia to add to the kitchen, or anywhere in the house for that matter.

No3 | A sweet brass planter to add as an accessory in the progressing bedroom renovation.

No4 | Ina Garten's newest cookbook - Make It Ahead.  It's hard to believe that as obsessed with Ina as I am, I still don't have her latest cookbook.  It really isn't even that new anymore!

No5 | Anna Spiro's Absolutely Beautiful Things - I've included this on a wishlist before and for good reason.  It looks perfect and would have so much interior inspiration.

No6 | A Delicate Gold Heart Ring to layer with other rings and wear daily as a reminder of my girl.  I don't have or wear many rings.  This one looks pretty feminine and perfect to me.

Do you guys give/receive Mother's Day gifts?  Anything special on your list?  Truthfully, all I want for Mother's Day is a relaxing morning with a cup of coffee, maybe a stack of pancakes and no chores or errands for the day.  Just a day spent wandering around our neighborhood - a walk, park, breakfast out, etc.  Nothing fancy, just a nice lazy at home day with family!  Happy (almost) Mother's Day to all the mama's in my life!

Update - Love and Victory, the creators of the gorgeous paper silhouette's mentioned above, are offering all readers a 15% discount with the code SOUTHLAND, enjoy!
