Up on the blog this week, it's all about Mom. No doubt Mother's Day 2020 is going to look a lot differently than that of 2019 for a lot of us. But, just because we are quarantined from our mothers, doesn't mean that we shouldn't make it a special day for her. If you want gifts to make it to Mom in time, start shopping now — and check with retailers about their shipping deadlines. In many cases, the coronavirus lock down is causing shipping delays. Don't worry, I'll be back next week with my interior design tips for Philadelphia and beyond.

A New Look for an Old Hobby
Most of our mothers have a little extra time on their hands these days. As the one-two combination of home quarantine and coronavirus anxiety takes its toll on millions of Americans, the hunt is on for new ways to pass the time. After all, there's only so much Netflix a person can watch. With this renewed interest, puzzles have entered the mainstream with stylish makeovers and a new reputation as a wholesome self-care activity. I love this double sided puzzle with captivating aerial photography by Gray Malin. It's sure to be one of her favorites. Best of all? Mom can display this puzzle as a piece of art once it's finished.
