Mother’s Day is MP’s favorite holiday. What’s not to like about a day devoted to moms and all they do? She has a few items on her wish list this year—all from some of her favorite shops and craftspeople in Maine:

MP has admired this necklace from Turtle Love Co. for years now. Their mom and baby necklaces are pretty darn cute, too.

During this white and wintery time of year, MP craves color. What a treat it was to discover the Wildflower Soup Etsy shop. Shop owner and Brunswick Mom, Tammy Johnson, makes dolls and colorful quilts that are sure to brighten anyone’s day. Take a look:

MP adores this time of year. There are inspired outdoor markets going on all over the state, and many offer live music, food, and crafts for the kiddos. This weekend, MP is looking forward to shopping the In Bloom Artisan Market at Doc’s Cafe in Cumberland.

The car thermometer read 8º when MP drove the kids to the school this morning. The serious chill in the air made her crave hot tea, a fire in the woodstove, and her favorite quilt.

It’s moments like these that lead MP on searches for items like Maine made blankets. Sure enough, she came across a lovely little Etsy shop called The Early Girl. Shop owner Shannon Johnson chooses colorful, fun fabrics to create cozy quilts for babies and toddlers. This lobster and gray striped quilt is one of many unique choices available in her shop.

Since we’ve been away, MP is a little bit behind on everything, especially her Easter shopping. She likes to put some candy in the kids’ baskets, but small gifts are always fun and memorable. This sweet mouse from Laika Handknits is just the right size for little hands:

Last week, Cute Potato asked where you found your favorite kids’ room furniture and accessories. One reader recommended the Yarmouth Clam Festival and we couldn’t agree more. Maine fairs and festivals are a great way to connect with local artisans. Can’t wait for summer festivals to start? Try the Etsy Maine Team for wall art and fun decor for your child’s room.

Our friend and fellow blogger, the Maine Maven, discovered a beautiful crib at Hands of Hope Thrift Store in Bangor. Children’s resale shops are ideal for finding cribs, rocking chairs and book shelves at low prices. If you’re fortunate enough to have a Family Network Trading Post in your town, it’s a great resource for kids’ rooms. We found Cute Potato #2’s crib and mattress (both in perfect condition) for $100 on our network. Craig’s List Maine and Uncle Henry’s are also great places to find bargains on gently used furniture for little ones.

We found a similarly styled crib (minus the leopard print rug) on our Family Network Trading Post

A great-looking kids’ room from L.L.Bean

L.L.Bean has been stepping up their line of kids’ bedding and room accessories lately. We love the quilts, comforter covers, monogrammed pillows and most especially, the canvas storage totes (more colors, please). Their chenille braided rugs are durable and they work well in a playroom or bedroom.

Nearby gift shops also offer a few unique accessories for kids’ rooms. We’re big fans of Folly 101 in Portland, where we found a colorful paper mobile, fun room hooks and a beautiful, pressed floral lampshade.

Keep an eye out for sales at Chilton’s, where we’ve spotted pine bunk beds and single beds. Maine Bunk Beds in Brunswick, who make eco-friendly beds in beautiful (milk paint) colors, is our current favorite.

We’re loving the styles and colors at Maine Bunk Beds

So there you have it. Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. We’ll keep searching… and let us know what you discover, too!
