Mother-in-laws are Mother's Too...

A few weeks ago, I posted a Mother's Day Gift Guide in honor of my mother's birthday. And since this coming Sunday is Mother's Day, I wanted to share a few more gift ideas.





Wood Hanging Shelf by OldNewAgain etsy shop
I would love to have a shelf like this to hang our keys on, and they make them in a wide array of colors. They also make them in different sizes.






Italina Herb Garden Marker Set by monpetitchouboutique etsy shop
I am drooling over this garden marker set for my herbs...they also make really beautiful spoon jewelry.






Classic Ticking Seaside Tote by Pesky Cat Designs etsy shop
ANY mother would love this summery tote bag!

French Chair and Words Eco Tote by Take Flight Boutique etsy shop
Here's another gorgeous tote, great to carry around knitting or crocheting projects, or for picking up a few things at the grocery. She makes adorable hats and jewelry as well.

Dahlia Pillow-Decorator Fabric by martha & ash etsy shop
I have several of their pillows marked in my favorites list, some very unique patterns.

And for those of us that love our mother-in-law like a mother, I dedicated this weekends treasury to mine. Meet Joy, (wish I had thought to post a pic of my mother in the posting I dedicated to her, so I'll just have to post about her again in the future and include one).



I have been very blessed to have Joy as my mother-in-law,... she helped out with babysitting when needed, she somehow manages to give the most thoughtful gifts you love receiving (lucky for me,she passed on this characteristic to her son and grandchildren), last year when I broke my foot and ankle, she spent a whole week helping us to clean & declutter (we thought we were putting the house on the market), she brought meals, basically anything we needed. She is also the BEST baker I know...her apple, pumpkin and custard pies, really all her pastry crusts are TO-DIE-FOR!!!
She's always there to listen, but never interferes...she has had much loss with burying her parents, her husband and a son, yet still manages to smile everytime you see her. She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is outside.



How very BLESSED I am to have two absolutely amazing women in my life???!!!


So if you still have Mother's Day shopping to do, don't forget your Mom-In-Law.... Following is the treasury I dedicated to Joy...

I love love love OldNewAgain's work... I entered a giveaway to win a shelf, but unfortunately didn't win. I was disappointed. ;)

Joy sounds like a wonderful mother-in-law, and I'm sure she appreciates the shout-out on your blog! <3

As Missy's sister in law I too have the honor of having the best Mother-in-law a woman could ever wish for. She has always been there for our love and support! There has never been a moment that Joy hasn't been there for me or my entire family. She has been a real inspiration for for me, and I can only hope thatone day I can be half the mother in law she has been to me! Thanks for posting Missy! Love you!
