Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Flowers are always great for Mother’s Day, but if you’re looking for something a little different (and perhaps more extravagant) this year, how about something handmade in Vermont?

 

We’re running a special for Mother’s Day on Ken’s handmade cutting boards (small and large), chopping blocks and wooden drink coasters.  These are gifts Mom can enjoy for many years!

 

If you think Mom should be relaxing instead of preparing and serving food, maybe you’ll want to check out some of our new all weather patio, pool and deck furniture by POLYWOOD.

 

Whatever you think would delight Mom on this Mother’s Day, it’s probably time to get going on it today if shipping is involved.  At Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture, we’re at the phone now and ready to help.  Give us a call!

I'm visiting my mother this weekend and as always, I'm in awe at how amazing she is.  I wonder how I will ever be able to live up to her legacy.

Mom always has a project going on.  Right now she's in the middle of a feral cat rescue!  I came home to find 2 mother cats and 10 kittens on her back porch.  Mom is caring for them until the babies can be adopted and the mothers can be spayed.  Can you imagine a white-haired, 80 year old gramma trapping wild cats, and ferrying them back and forth to the vet for shots and neutering?  I guess if you haven't ever dealt with feral cats, this may not seem like such a feat… but I promise you these are not your average cuddly pussy cats.  I'll post some photos later this week.  Must get back to the porch now.

Wishing a Happy and Joyful Mother's Day to all our Mothers!  Please tell me about your own amazing mother below.
