Can’t afford to take your mother on a trip to Bali this year?

Katja Presnal the founder and visionary behind the lifestyle brand Skimbaco is offering the necklace (photo above) to one lucky winner. The beautiful ONE DROP teardrop silver necklace with a turquoise lava bead on a cable chain.

Skimbaco is not something you will find in a dictionary, but rather a combination of a Finnish slang word “skimba” for skis and “co” for Colorado (the place she and her young family were living at that time). Read more about the brand here.

A long time believer in natural healing, Presnal discovered the personal benefits of essential oils during labour with her second child. As a sought-after writer and motivational speaker, she has had the opportunity to visit many countries around the globe and had the pleasure of visiting local farms for a better understanding of edibles (herbs and produce) cultivation. During her extensive travels, Presnal discovered that daily use of essential oils contributed to her physical and mental well-being.

Her personal essential oil usage led to the inspiration for a classy jewellery line. Designed with materials that work well to diffuse essential oils, each piece is stunning. Explore the Skimbaco collection.

Suspended on a teardrop of sterling silver the turquoise lava bead, on this exquisite ONE DROP necklace, is intended for your favourite essential oil. Read more about the importance of scents and emotions here.

Win a Pair of Designer Silk Earrings in our Mother’s Day Giveaway

To celebrate our mothers with a gift that reflects their beauty, designer Morija Reeb has kindly offered a set of her silk earrings for our Mother’s Day giveaway contest.

Morija Reeb is an Ontario-based weaver with a textile preference for silk. It is a fabric that she describes as versatile and at times surprising in the results that occur on her loom. You can read more about this accomplished designer here and here.

The design inspiration for these lightweight earrings is the natural splendour of butterfly wings. Reeb uses a heat etching process to produce the remarkable depth of blue hues on the “wings” of these earrings. Gold foil accents create sparkle along the edges of these dangling earrings, which hang on brass-coated ear wires. Each pair of these teal and blue silk earrings is one-of-a-kind.

Does your mother feed off the energy of social gatherings surrounded by friends and family?

These hand carved serving boards are long lasting gifts that are perfect for entertaining. West Coast weather permitting, Kathy Clark of Schooner Lane Designs cuts these hardwood boards on her Bowen Island deck. Using her trusty electric saw Clark hand cuts walnut, maple and cherry hardwood into a shape that will eventually become a cheese or charcuterie board. These serving boards are finished with food-safe beeswax and mineral oil paste. Schooner Lane Designs serving and chopping boards are created from rough off-cuts, giving this wood a renewed purpose.

Choose any one of these boards for your mother. Our personal favourite is the heart handle version. Add a special touch by requesting to have the board engraved with your mum’s initials.
