New month, new day, new dreams–it does seem like anything is possible in May. In a whirlwind of spring cleaning, we’ve put away our winter things—sweaters, boots and ice scrapers and we’ve begun mowing, mulching and weeding. It won’t be long before we’re barefoot in the grass again. We’re shaking out our welcome mats and looking forward to entertaining our family and friends on the warm and sunny days ahead.
May is filled with reasons to celebrate! Bookending the month, we have Nurses week at the beginning (where would we be without them?) and Memorial Day on the 25th, when we honor and remember those who have served our country.
On May 10th, we celebrate all the great moms in our lives on Mother’s Day. Here at Blue Mountain, we’ve been creating some wonderful new cards especially for her. Inspired by beautiful Boston Public Garden, we imagined a scene from the turn of the century with the swan boats drifting on the lagoon to the music of a string quartet along the bank, playing Minuet in G. Our favorite collage artist has created a stunning new design, incorporating warm and loving wishes for Mom. And you’ll be happy to hear, we’ve designed a new Mother’s Day card, featuring Pharrell Williams’ song, “Happy.” If you’re a Talking Card fan, you’ll enjoy our new glam dog at the spa, “Paws and Relax.”
Happy May and Happy Mother’s Day!
