I want you all to see this! I've been scouring the internet for great ideas!!!
Yesterday I had made a FB comment reminding husbands that Mother's Day is Sunday...
That led to a humorous series of responses, so I decided to pick out some really cool and interesting ideas that would make excellent Mother's Day gifts!
Above, you see a vintage 1950's swimsuit! I really love the styles from that era--the suits were not as revealing, and they looked pretty and classy. When I am at the beach or pool, I am a SWIMMER! I like a suit that is practical so I can dive and swim. The houndstooth coat is so 'Audrey Hepburn', and I loved her style sense!! I'd so love to get a pretty coat like this!
You'll never believe what these items are...they look like goodies, don't they? The 'ice cream sandwich' is actually a large pillow, and the 'cupcakes' are soap! So cool!!!
The cosmetic center above is something I could really put to good use. I have all my makeup in a plastic bin and I have to dig through it to find stuff. It is maddening. And, what do you all think of the retro stove? It reminds me of my favorite TV show, I Love Lucy! I could totally get into baking brownies in this baby.
You're probably asking what that contraption is with all the gears...it is a solar powered 'rainbow maker'! I LOVE rainbows, so I'd adore having one of these little toys! What a neat idea!
By now, I think you might see a trend...I absolutely think retro/vintage stuff is the best EVER. This black dress would be something I would wear for sure. The '50's look really flatters the 'feminine' and makes me feel a little glamorous. This retro dinette set (diner style) is awesome. I think it is really cute.
Do you like these unique gift ideas? The flower kubuki cosmetic brushes and the 'Shuellas'(shoe umbrellas), which fold to fit into your handbag, are something useful and fun.
More pretty stuff! Check out the floral umbrella, and the spa lights. My bathroom is the world's ugliest. I won't go into it, but let's say this: it needs a serious makeover. These little lights float in the water and would make bathtime more fun for me!
