Hi everyone Happy Sunday. It has been freezing here. We have had the coolest Spring I can remember. What do we care, all we are doing is packing anyway. Let’s take a break and join Mary Ann and Annie for some Sunday fun gifts for mom and more.

FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE ON INSTAGRAM
We cannot grow lilacs here but I know you can pick them up at TJ’s. Needless to say I have not been shopping just packing. This photo from Courtney from French Country Cottage made me want to go out and buy a bushel. She takes the most gorgeous photos of florals. You can follow her on Instagram here. You can follow her beautiful blog here.
THE ZOOKEEPERS WIFE ON NETFLIX
I Just finished watching the zookeeper’s wife on Netflix. The film tells the true story of how Jan and Antonia Zabrinski rescued hundreds of Polish Jews from the Germans by hiding them in their Warsaw zoo during WW II. I thought it was wonderful, but I had not read the book. Would love to hear from those of you who have what you thought. I know sometimes the movie versions can be disappointing.
GIFT GUIDE FOR MOM-AKA US
J Crew is back in a big way in my mind. Okay, I am not a pattern person but I am in love with these pants. The reviews are out the window, so if you like them grab them. I have a feeling this will be one of those items that will sell out because they are so unique. They would look fabulous with their Baird McNutt Irish linen shirt (a favorite of mine which now comes in a boy cut). I am ordering both as a present to me. I rounded up a group of accessories to complement it. I think everything should be kind of laid back and simple because the pants are so va va voom. I love korkease sandals so comfortable. I added my favorite Jo Malone fragrance and some cute PB rattan-covered glasses that I am personally coveting. The icing on the cake is the fresh lilacs you can order from Flowerbox here All other items are linked below. Just noticed the pants are on final sale so make sure you know your size!
SHOP GIFTS MOM WILL LOVE
Lots of cute things for Summer that are now reasonably priced.
It’s a good time to pick up that Pia Hat that you all loved so much, and so many great scarves and belts in the accessory section. This Frye bag is fabulous but so darn pricey. $100 off might make it more palatable. Is it me, or have shoes and bags gotten ridiculously expensive?
Thanks for reading Sunday fun gifts for mom and more. Have a great Sunday! I hope it is warmer where you are than here. Now pop over and join Annie and Mary Ann. I can’t wait to see what they are sharing.
