Today’s Mother’s Day!

Today is a very special day for all mothers around the world, and Prairie PastTimes doesn’t want you to miss out on an amazing gift!  Today, Janice Glanville, who makes some of our amazing stained glass pieces, is running the store!  She’s given up her own special day to help you make your mom feel loved, and who better to do it?

Janice has been making unique stained glass designs for years, and using it in very innovative ways such as this amazing trinket box!

It’s perfect for placing jewelry in, or those special keepsakes, like shells Mom’s collected from her trip to the ocean, or those special presents of leaves and flowers that her grandchildren have given her.

If you don’t have the time to wrap up something so delicate, or you need something that will travel a long distance as you catch Mom for dinner, Janice also makes wonderful cards by hand!  You know that they’re special when someone like Janice has put effort into it!

Of course, there are lots of other items in the store, as well!  Paintings and photographs, shawls and books!  The best way to find mom the best gift is to go in and look around!  Janice will be glad to help you out!  She’s there from 11-5 today!

 

 

Mother’s Day

Prairie PastTimes is a store created by families, designed for families.  From jewelry, coloring books, dolls clothes and stuffed animals for children, to stained glass, classy hand-dyed silks and beautiful photographs for adults, we’ve really tried to capture the feel of growing up on the Kansas Prairie.

As Mother’s Day nears, we see our art as the perfect gift for all moms.  Each item was crafted with love and attention to detail, and each is one-of-a-kind, just like the amazing women who raised us and put up with our stubborn artist streaks.  Each month we try to display a selection of items we feel would best fit the upcoming holiday.  Here is this month’s:

Beyond that, though, we have so much more to offer!  So here are a few examples of the other wonderful items that could belong to your mom this Sunday!

What mom doesn’t love new jewelry?

What mom doesn’t love soaps and lotions?

What mom doesn’t love new utensils for the kitchen (dads, keep this in mind for Father’s Day, too!)?

What mom doesn’t want a beautiful piece of stained glass in her window, to brighten her day?

These are just a smattering of the amazing items we have available for that special woman we all have to thank on May 8.  Won’t you stop in and take a look at what unique piece your mom would like?  We’re open until 5 pm today!
