Natalie Holbrook is a hopeless optimist and prodigious over-exaggerator who lives in a tiny apartment in New York City with her husband Brandon and her baby Huck. Her blog, Nat The Fat Rat, is a love letter from her family to New York City, where she captures all the lovely little things that make up a wonderful life.
With Mother’s Day coming up soon, I thought I’d pick a few of my favorite Etsy offerings geared towards mamas of all kinds. I do hope you enjoy, and please remember: mamas of furbabies deserve a special gift this holiday, too!

I tend to lean to the cleaner lines of modern minimalism, especially if it carries a graphic punch. I’m completely nuts over everything from A Merry Mishap. Her colors are total perfection. (P.S. I might die and go to heaven for those sparkly oxfords.)

When my baby was brand new and teeny tiny, I found myself drawn to delicate jewelry and sweet details. That incredibly slim gold ring would make THE perfect new mama gift. One for each baby, wouldn’t you think?
[Clockwise from top left: Fresh breeze doily curtains by Littlewhiteboutique; forest green skinny tie by vKnit; vintage aqua mason jars from TheCherryGrove; doily and brown tweed pillow cover by AnnadaisyDesigns; mega doily crochet rug by dziergalnia; vintage Japanese floral teaspoons from TambourineJewelry; Garden of Earthly Delights embroidery kit from Abracraftdabra; 1920s yellow tea cup and saucer from VintageLillyShoppe.]
For the mama who prefers scalloped edges and sweetly embroidered details. Every woman deserves her own vintage tea cup and saucer for unwinding once baby is asleep. By the way, that embroidery kit is KILLER and I am crushing on it hard core.

Fellow earth mamas know there’s nothing cooler or cozier than some vintage Pendleton. Except maybe an antique deer trophy? Maybe?
