Mother's Day Week - Tea & Tea Parties!

Be sure and visit all the Shop Hop & Blog Hop participants this week to find all kinds of goodies for Mother's Day and to register to win some great prizes.

Look for this image on all of the sponsor's websites. It may be hidden anywhere so look closely. Once you've located it, click it to receive credit for finding it. We are offering prizes based on the number of MMP shopping bags you find (the more you find, the better the prizes will be). When the contest is over, we will randomly draw names and announce the winners on Mother's Day. Happy hunting!

The theme throughout the blog-hop today is "Planning a Tea", and since I do not know nearly enough about tea and tea parties, I will refer any readers who happen by today to visit my favorite tea-related boutiques and experts on the subject of tea, tea accoutrements, and tea parties ...

If you have a tea lover on your Mother's Day gift list, hurry over to Sweet Necessi-Teas TODAY!! Owner, Karen Hattaway has the most beautiful tea themed gift boxes, tea cup and saucer totes, old-fashioned pinafore aprons, tea linens and cozies, tea-themed jewelry, tea sets, one-of-a-kind jackets, romantic skirts, wreaths and more for the tea enthusiast and romantic at heart. Karen is an expert seamstress and her new romantic skirts are to-die-for gorgeous! Just look at this beauty!! Wouldn't Mom LOVE this?!

You will certainly enjoy yourself browsing at Karen's boutique, as you will find she has an amazing selection of her own creations as well as fine tea sets, home decor, and so much more!

If it's Tea Party's you are interested in and if you live in the vicinity of Cedar Rapids, Marion, and Hiawatha, Iowa you are in wonderful luck! As that is where you'll find Britta's Victorian Tea Parties! Even if you are not in that area, you'll want to visit Britta's online boutique and be inspired by all her lovely tea party gallery pages and all the other lovely tea party information and shopping you'll find there.

Enjoy making plans for spending time with or sending best wishes to all the lovely mom's you know and love, whether it is your mom, grandmother, aunt, sister, sister-in-law, stepmother, a neighbor, teacher, or a friend, we all know many women who deserve our love and special attention this Mother's Day. Be especially grateful if you are so blessed as to still have your mother in your life to spend time with in whatever way you can arrange. I'd love to hear from any who have the time to post a comment and tell me your plans for Mother's Day.

Hi Diane, I will be traveling to spend time with my Mom on Mother's Day. Mom loves her garden but with two hip replacements and almost 85 yrs. old it's hard for her to bend down so my sister and I will be working her garden for her, pruning, planting flowers, etc. :) ~ Lynn
