Mother's Day Gifts - Blenko

Mother's Day was started in West Virginia - why not choose a Made In West Virginia gift for this occassion?
The modern Mother's Day holiday was created by Anna Jarvis as a day for each family to honor its mother, and it's now celebrated on various days in many places around the world.
This holiday is relatively modern, being created at the start of the 20th century, and should not be confused with the early pagan and Christian traditions honoring mothers, or with the 16th century celebration of Mothering Sunday, which is also known as Mother's Day in the UK.
In most countries the Mother's Day celebration is a recent holiday derived from the original US celebration. Exceptions are, for example, the Mothering Sunday holiday in the UK. ** this info was provided by webmaster Steve from info on the net.

Neat idea.
What new glass are they offering? What is in stock? What can we order? Very little is on line could you do photos?
Want to buy but have most of what is on line.

Nobody can love a child more than his or her mother. When it comes to appreciating everything a mother does for a child, you have to do it with the right gift and flowers is the best gift these days.
