We think it’s safe to say that pom pom hats are having a moment. Their popularity makes sense — the hats look so darn cheerful in a gray, wintery landscape. And while we’ve spotted these hats in national retail stores, the best we’ve found are made right here in Maine. Wayne resident Brookes Smith custom knits soft, cozy hats from her home studio and tops each with a faux fur pom pom. Her Instagram feed features a variety of tempting colors and knits, which makes it a challenge to choose a favorite!

If you know our family, you know we’re big seltzer drinkers. So you can imagine our delight when we discovered Green Bee, a Brunswick, Maine-based soda company, recently launched a new line of sparkling water. These unsweetened drinks are infused with fresh squeezed juice, so you get lots of great flavor without added sugar. Sparkling water fans can choose from wild blueberry, tangy lemon and a zippy ginger. These great flavors sound especially enticing with the warmer days coming our way!

How is it that Sunday Mother’s Day already? If you’re anything like MP, you’re shopping for a thoughtful gift just a few days before. Here are a few local favorites:

Signature Westport Leather Clutch

This clutch has a few good things going for it. First, MP loves this bag for its simple, classic style. The interior is deep, making it easy to store your wallet, makeup and a few additional essentials inside. And the best part? There’s a handy, zipper storage compartment on the outside of the bag for your cell phone.
