Shop Handmade : Mother's Day

I'm announcing Mother's Day now because Etsy is the perfect shopping venue for this holiday and you should get your orders in soon!
If you're a mom out there reading, what do you want most for Mother's Day? (Other than some peace and quite.)  And daughters and sons, what are you planning to show your mom how awesome she is?

These are some of my top picks from some of my favorite Etsy Shops - and all of these items come from New England. 

If your Mom's ideal mother's day involves sleeping in, taking a long bath, and getting her nails done then consider a bar of herbal Peppermit Rosemary Homemade Soap by DeShawnMarie. DeShawn makes the most beautiful soaps, in fact you should get two; one to look at and one to use!
Peppermint Rosemary Vegan Handmade Soap

If your Mom's idea mother's day is cooking her way through her latest Food Network Magazine then you should check out this Set of Two Organic Linen Tea Towels from madder root.  Christina and Janyce handprint unique designs on organic linen.  I've personally been eyeing the Mussel Tea Towel set - they scream New England!

Or, is your Mom the kind of women who simply appreciates an impeccably made card for Mother's day? This Bold Butterflies Handmade Card is made in Massachusetts by Seaglass Papercrafts and it's a perfect way to say I love you.  You can check out more of Christina's creations on her Blog!
