For Your Mama

Wednesday, May 6

This is your PSA that Mother’s Day (in Canada, at least) is this coming Sunday, May 10th. I know, you forgot. You’re not alone. But I’m here to save the day! Save the day with bluebellgray! (Sorry. Couldn’t resist.)

Have we talked about bluebellgray before? I feel like we must have. They’re a UK-based textile company and they design the most stunning watercolour-esque florals. Chapters/Indigo carries a line of their pillows and I’m dying to find a client whose style they suit.  All wispy, pretty, feminine. Perfect for Spring! Perfect for YOUR MOTHER.

So here’s the deal: They were lovely enough to send me this gorgeous shopping tote and I want one of you to have it! You can keep it for yourself (get those groceries in style!) or gift it to your mom/maternal figure as thanks for all the hard work she did bringing you into this world (and keeping you alive for 18+ years... no small feat).  Your choice. (But your mom is pretty awesome, just saying.) And, even cooler – this bag isn’t actually available anywhere in Canada… so your mom will be one of a kind.

To enter, leave a comment below and tell me how you refer to your mom/maternal figure. I only call my mom "Mother" when I'm angry and she knows it... so I always have to search extra hard to find a mother's day card without the word "mother" in it. Trying times, I tell you. 

Giveaway is now closed and the winner has been notified. Thanks!

  1. My mother would love that tote! Beautiful, and the pillows too (great find!). Although my mother goes by "mom" in my daily life, she is most famously known as "Olga", and it suites her perfectly (you'd understand if you met her). Ever since I've had a cell phone "Mother Olga" has scrolled across the top whenever she calls (often)... and I still get a kick out of it. Happy mothers day mom :).

  2. My "mum" (as I call her) would love that tote! She's a fond wearer of floral... a trait she kindly passed onto me. On annoying days, she's lovingly groaned to in the version of "muuuuuuummmm..." In thinking about it, you sure do put up with a lot (including my twenty daily phone calls.) Thanks for always picking up :-) Happy mothers day!

  3. Beautiful! I especially love the watercolour effect. Might be time for me to do some pillow shopping at Chapters...:)

  4. Awesome tote, my mom is an avid gardener she would love it. I often call my mom "Women" if trying to get my point across, and she in turn calls me girl. Mostly she is mom and now Gran as her mother was to me. I can see my space rocking those pillows somewhere.

  5. Despite being a "grown-up" it still usually comes out as Mooooooom. Not sure it'll ever stop. lol LOVE that bag!

  6. I prefer to do the Stewie Griffin "Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, Mama, Mama, Mama, Mama, Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum, Mum.... HI!" heeheeheeee

  7. Most commonly she is Mum but on my particularly whiney days (yes, even at 32 years old) she becomes Mommmma. To everyone else she's the one and only Momma Sue!

  8. Mama Little would love this! Perfect cottage tote :)

  9. I loooove Bluebellgray! I call her Mom or Mum or sometimes Mommasita :)


Your comments make my day! Thanks!
