Healing Touch Pottery – Mother’s Mug
Based out of New Hampshire, Healing Touch Pottery creates unique handcrafted gifts. Their pottery is unique in its appearance and in its healing energy. Each piece is created with a specific intention and healing component. One of the most special items we came across is the Mother’s Mug. It has a Mother of Pearl shell attached to the thumb rest of the mug handle and is tagged with the words below.
“A mother protects and nurtures, gives care and affection, and shelters her child during the tender growth and many stages of life. Mother of Pearl represents the shield a mother provides. This organic mineral becomes the protective coating around an oyster or abalone during its growth and formation. A Mother’s Mug is an extension of love and gratitude from the child. I love you, mom”.

La LOOP was born out of necessity. A young mom living in New York and juggling work & kids was tired of losing her glasses in the bottom of her bag or losing them all together! She wanted to create products that were functional and stylish, yet simplified. The styles catch your attention, but it’s the patented hinges that set La LOOP in a class of its own. Using 360-degree technology on the hinges of the loop, it keeps your glasses secure and in place without bending, twisting, or falling out. You can check these out locally at Sight in West Hartford Center. For more information, please visit:
