Your reminder that Mother's Day is a mere nine days ago. To help you be a little different from dinner and/or flowers this year--if that's your thing--here are some metal art gift ideas for your fascinating and discerning Mom.
Let's say your Mom likes animals, especially cats. She certainly doesn't need another little kitty, but you want acknowledge her love for the felines. Why not get her a great, retro-looking metal art cat silhouette. It's small and inexpensive enough that's it not too much of a commitment of money or wall space. She'll love it and it's here.
Ok. So your Mom likes yoga, is Hindu, or has a general spiritual bent. Or, let's just say she like good design. Then, you might want to consider this recycled oil drum om. It comes in two easy to display sizes. Find them here.
RESIST. Enough said. If your Mom is fed up with the state of the union, nothing is as succinct and powerful as this word. Display indoors or outside and Mom can let other's see she's taking a stand.
A pineapple. A sign of hospitality and a design trend. A lovely and great gift for the Mom who's great at entertaining.
We're moving on from our botanical and floral Mother's Day themes into some fish/nautical themes. Perfect for Mom's beach house (if she's lucky enough to have one) or lake house (also, lucky! lucky!), or likes to fish, or cook with fish, or use nautical themes to decorate her house/apartment/RV/etc.
While not a fish, this great metal mermaid lets Mom know that she's exotic, beautiful, elegant, and rare. Find this gorgeous piece of oil drum art here.
We're crab lovers here at Three Stone Steps, and maybe your Mother is one, too. Then, you can't go wrong with this striking and affordable crab silhouette. It's on the small side so the I just don't have room to fit one more thing on the walls! probably will be no excuse. Get Mom crabs this Mother's Day here.
Today's final suggestion is one of our older pieces, fish with marble eye. They are sold individually, or you can display as a pair. Perfect for the unique fish and design-loving Mom. These unknown fish species are here.
Keeping with the floral theme of Mother's Day gifts, we present round two of our gift ideas. Mother's Day is 16 days away!
And, we're happy to help you keep things as easy as possible: if Mom doesn't live near you, we're happy to send directly to her as a gift. Just let us know what to say on your behalf--must fit on the back of a postcard--and off it will go!
Yes, we featured this piece of recycled metal art recently in this blog, but it's so lovely, it's worth highlighting again. Wonderful birds perch on the curving branches of the hibiscus. Find it here.
Not exactly flowers, but this recycled oil drum art of a delicate tree in an arch is such a lovely piece that it makes the perfect gift for the right Mom. Maybe yours? This piece of Haitian metal art is found here.
Again, we featured this adorable, affordable piece of metal art and its companion pieces recently here, but it's so great and such a good Mother's Day gift, we're doing it again. Little birds sit among a flowering tree. This cute and easy to display and give piece of oil drum art is here.

While we wait (and wait and wait) for Spring here in the Mid-Atlantic, we take a bit of solace in viewing some of our many pieces of tree or botanical metal art. Among our loveliest is the piece we call birds with hibiscus. (I think floral purists might take issue with the idea that they are hibiscus, but they are close enough for us!)
And, speaking of flower or tree metal art, we'll be vending at the wonderful Spring Garden Market at the American Horticultural Society next Friday and Saturday.
This isn't one of our newer recycled oil drum pieces, but it one of our most well loved. And, when you look it it, there's good reason for that, too. You can see it in more detail here.
Two little birds perch on the branches of a square fruit tree. This measures 6" x 6", and works inside or as outdoor decor. It's cute, sweet, and versatile. What's not to love?
Its (almost) universal appeal makes it a great gift. And, the price is nice, too.
Finally, happy Passover, happy Easter, and if you're out and about in the DC area on Saturday, please find us at Eastern Market, for our first outdoor art ware peddling of the year!
