personalized bluebird plateHoly weepy grandmother – I just discovered the personalized plates from Aedriel Dixon’s etsy shop and if that’s not going to have Nana or Bubbie or Gamma flying through the Kleenex Designer Florals on Mother’s Day then I don’t know what will.

These ceramic plates feature sweet little blue or black birds, and a coordinated painted rim. And because they’re all painted by hand, Aedriel can customize them with a nickname, the grandkids’ names, or a short message of love right in the center.

The personalized plates take about two weeks to create and ship so best to order now. Although she will do her best to help you out if you’re frantic for a faster turnaround. That’s just the kind of thing cool moms do for each other. – Liz
