Mother's Day Is May 10th

Mother's Day will be here before you know it! Here's a little history about the holiday according to Wikipedia.

The modern Mother's Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis as a day for each family to honor its mother, and it's now celebrated on various days in many places around the world. It complements Father's Day, the celebration honoring fathers.

This holiday is relatively modern, being created at the start of the 20th century, and should not be confused with the early pagan and christian traditions honoring mothers, or with the 16th century celebration of Mothering Sunday, which is also known as Mother's Day in the UK.


In most countries the Mother's Day celebration is a recent holiday derived from the original US celebration. Exceptions are, for example, the Mothering Sunday holiday in the UK.

I've created a section in my shop dedicated to Mother's Day Gift Ideas. Browse through several elegant, simple, and fun wearable art pendants and rings. Here are a few select items that Mom would surely be happy to wear:

I love those! They are all so beautiful-I love the details of the white tree and the simplicity of the one love.
I just wish Mother's Day was not the day after my birthday-I tend to get forgotten :(
