Congrats to the Winner of our Good Morning Mom Giveaway!

Chris Shari Alligood is the winner of our fabulous Good Morning Mom Giveaway!

She’ll be receiving:

  • A super kitschy vintage “Mom” mug from Bohemian Seed and Starbucks coffee donated via Tumblewee for a good ol’ cup of joe when mom wakes up.
  • One dozen “Nana’s Cinnamon Rolls” from Love to Create3 to round out the breakfast tray you’ll be delivering the coffee on (it is Breakfast in Bed)!
  • A $25 dollar gift certificate  for mom to spend as she chooses at Naked Eye Beauty so she can get ready for her day after her breakfast in bed!
  • Earrings and a matching ring from Jeannie Richard so she can look stylish in her outfit for the day.

She shared this story with us about her mom:

It’s so nice to know that you’re mom and you are back on speaking terms!  Life without our mothers just isn’t the same . . . regardless of problems and disagreements we may have with them. We hope your mother loves the gift . . . or that you do ;)

Thanks for liking us on Facebook and following our blog!

Happy Mother’s Day,

meg & ash

Featured Etsy Seller: Love To Create3

Oh My. I need this in China – stat!

We’re all fans of cinnamon buns and Love to Create3’s look so good that, well, we could gobble them up (even if it would be bad for our waistlines).  But there’s no harm in indulging every once in a while and Mother’s Day is one of those days!  We’re giving away one dozen Nana’s Cinnamon Buns for some lucky winner of our Mother’s Day Giveaway but if you’re getting a sweet tooth just looking at them and need to indulge a little sooner check out some of here other goodies like the chocolate chips above or these mouthwatering brownies:

The Chocolate Lovers Brownies from Love to Create3

But if sweets aren’t really your thing and you’re more into cuddling up on the couch with a good book on Mother’s Day then maybe you should take a look at these beautiful quilts:

As quilters we can’t help but be a little jealous of such a beautiful quilt and the talent that produced it

Perhaps with a cup of coffee and some toast with strawberry jam in the morning?

Oh great – we got back to food again didn’t we??

Go enter our Mother’s Day Giveaway for a chance to win those fabulous cinnamon buns!

Featured Etsy Seller: Persephone’s Place

Southwestern and Native American inspired patterns have always had a cool, close to nature feel.  This spring and summer season we are seeing these patterns pop out in all types of apparel and done in lots of different styles and colors (from neutral to neons).  However, sometimes we just like the look and feel of the real deal . . .

So remember these oh-so-cool earrings from Persephone’s Place that Ash wore last Friday on her Native American inspired shoot?

Native Nights Western Beaded Earrings

Well, we are so in love with Monique’s beaded earrings that we thought we’d share some more of her stuff here on tumblewee!

These "Kimberly Earrings" have a fringe like feel.

Monique’s love for bead work is inspired by her partial Native American Heritage (Lenape Indian) and by what she sees and observes in nature. Being native Arizonians these Native American undertones in her work are what drew us to her shop.

I love the angle of these!

If you ask Monique she’ll tell you that her bead work is incorporated into her philosophy of life and love of nature.

These have a crow feathers look with the iridescent sheen!

Monique told us, “stone magic and earth magic, and a knowledge of mythology and esoteric sciences play a large part in the creation of my pieces. I spend a lot time outdoors hiking with my husband  and looking for stones, studying colors and combinations of colors as they appear in the natural environment.  Many of my pieces are spiritually dedicated to and inspired by mythological ideas and elemental energies.  Because I wish to convey the connection of my jewelry to earth and it’s elementals, I photograph my jewelry in natural environments whenever possible.”

Monique runs a blog: Plutons Gems which is actually devoted to her bead work and similar topics including ethics in the gemstone industry, and ecological mining and environmental issues.  If you’re interested in her work go read up!

So feel a little closer to nature, and a little closer to your style and stop by Persphone’s Place and take a look around!
