Put a Personal ---and Primitive---Touch on Mother’s Day!


Put a personal touch on Mother’s Day and make an impression that lasts all year long!  Here are our suggestions for making your gift extra-memorable---and warm Mom’s heart!

1. What Does YOUR Mother Say?!

What’s your Mom’s favorite saying?  “Don’t put that in your mouth---you don’t know where it’s been!”  or “You’ll always be my baby”?  Enclose a card reminding her of a story where she used your favorite saying and she’ll ‘flashback’ to that moment.

2. Custom-Made for Mom

Engrave Mom’s initials on this handmade Bel Kai necklace, customized for you locally here in Indiana.  Let her know the story behind the necklace and she will truly be touched.

3. Keep Mom’s Cell Phone Close

Mom has never been one to slow down and the Bella Taylor Antebellum Explorer Crossbody Handbag makes sure everything she needs is handy, wherever she may be.   Write “Keep your cellphone here, ready for my calls and text messages!” and pin that note on the outside pocket before you wrap your gift!

 4. Communicate All Year-Round

Write your Mother’s Day message on our Burgundy Chalkboard and make it the family message center all year round!  Attractive and sentimental!

5. Keep Mom Cozy and Warm

Wrap Mom in a cozy Cheston Patchwork Pattern quilt!  If she loves quilts (and who doesn’t?!), she will truly appreciate the warm color tones of burgundy and crème as well as the combination of plaids, stripes, vintage prints and striped ticking fabric.  Let Mom know that this Cheston Patchwork quilt will become a family heirloom----just like her!

6. The Love of Family Makes My Heart Smile

Simply said.  Set muffins or cookies atop this plate and carry it to your Mother’s Day celebration.  She’ll love the extra touch---and your sentiments.

 7. Hug Your Mom’s Neck…..

…And then place this beautiful Monaco Blue Ombre Infinity Scarf around her collar.  Since it’s only $6.95, pair it with the Bella Taylor Antebellum Explorer Crossbody Handbag recommended in #3….and hug your Mom’s neck again!

 8. Better Than Slippers!

When Mom’s feet hit the floor, they won’t be cold!  Also a great place for her favorite ‘woof’ or ‘meow’ to curl up at her feet.  And, our Four in Nine Patch Cotton Braided Rug matches the Cheston Patchwork Pattern Quilt recommended in #5…  Tell her this gift is much more imaginative than slippers!

 9. Give the Dining Room a Soft Glow

“So cute…love it” our customers tell us----and that’s exactly what Mom will say!  All you have to do is set our Burgundy Box Centerpiece on the dining room table with a card telling Mom how much you appreciate her.  The pillar candle in the middle gives off a soft glow; don’t forget to enclose three AAA batteries!

 10. Tell Her What Family Really Means

Mom will think of you every day when she sees this message:  “Family---Where Life Begins and Love Never Ends”.    Just say, “Mom, this says it all…” and hand her your gift.

 11. The Gift That Always Fits

“Go shopping on me, Mom!  Find something just for you!”  That’s what you write in her card when you enclose a Primitive Star Quilt Shop gift certificate ----and you know the gift will fit.

    This is the first year my mom is not with us, as she passed away on 2/18/16 after a 2 1/2 year battle with cancer. What I loved most about my mom was her faith and will to live. She was 79 when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Primary Paritineal cancer, she was determined from day one to fight it, she went thru surgery plus 2 1/2 years of continuous chemo. treatments, all while have drains on each side for her longs and towards then end going every 4 to 5 days to have her stomach drained. She never once complained and her faith in God never waivered .
    She always put her faith and family first, and made sure we were ok. Her love for us is what kept her fighting till the end, as she never wanted her or us to think what if, when she should have been enjoying her golden years. When ever one of us told her I love you she always responded with I love you most , as in every letter and card she put ILYTM , mom or Granny was her enclosed signature.

    “If your friends jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge, would you?” My sister and I always heard this, if we wanted to do something, and said everyone but us is allowed.

    My Mother worked 3 jobs to raise 6 kids by herself in the 1970’s. Mom’s day started at 4 am opening a restaurant for breakfast for 3 hours, then on to a factory job for 8 hours, and ended at home at 9pm when the last kid was fed, bathe, and put to bed. Her determination to survive against all odds has been a true inspiration to not only me, but to my brothers and sister as well.


    My Mamas Unconditionly Love !!! Forever with me.

    I love everything about my Mom. She is the strongest person I have ever known. She always will say how blessed she is no matter what and believe me she hasn’t had an easy life and still till this day she is a 24 hour a day 7 days a week care giver but she never gives up and never ever doubts her faith. She will always be there for us and anyone else she can help. She never puts herself first. I wish that everyone had a mother as sweet and loving as mine is.

    My mom is truely my best friend! A single mom of 4 kids i’m sure was pretty tough though she never once showed her pain or complained about a thing! the four of us are all grown with families of our own and my mom still continuiously gives as much as she can in anyway she can, from babysitting with the last minute rescue call, advice when having a bad day. 8 years ago my dad lost his job and 3 months later my mom lost hers. Without hesitation I moved them in with my family to try and give what she and they have unselfishly done for me. There are days and times its hard but I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Just one thing I wish I could do and give more for everything she’s done and gone without for us. Primitive country is our hobby and love to shop and decorate or house. What would be a better way for her to enjoy…


    Thank God my mother is still with us. She is 86 and still strong, she raised 9 children after my father left us. She was a dishwasher then cook for over 30 years. She started out making $1 an hour. I still wonder how she did it.

    My mom has always been my biggest cheerleader, she has always had more faith in me than I have had in myself. She has always been there for a shoulder to cry on, words of encouragement, a hug, or just to listen. No greater love in the world!
