Earth-lovin cloth napkins and snack sacks

I’ve cut down on my paper towel usage quite a bit, thanks to my Trader Joe’s cloths and a new Twist bamboo cloth that I just started using yesterday. Now it’s time to think about moving my paper-saving ways out of the kitchen and over to the dining table. These cloth napkins from Love For […]

Owie Bags

My kids, like most, are prone to owies. (In the past two hours we’ve had one bee sting and one arm slammed in a door. ow.) We usually run for the frozen boo-boo fish or a bag of peas. Yes, they’re cold, but they’re not particularly soft or comforting. I love these “owie-all-gone” bags made […]

Art Wall

There are so many great ideas out there for displaying kids art — clotheslines, sticker “frames”, picking some choice pieces and framing them in supersize matted frames. Ultimately, we ended up taping them to the wall as they come in. When people come over, I’m not sure if they’re thinking “Ooh, clever way to showcase […]

PishPosh Carryall

Look at this pretty little package that arrived in the mail last week from PishPosh Mommy. When I untied the brown satiny bow, there was a soft stylish PishPosh Carryall for me to review. I immediately filled up the pockets with all my “purse stuff” because the bag is essentially a purse organizer that lets […]

Ikea Play Kitchen

Hooray! Ikea has come out with a Duktig play kitchen. Unfortunately, it looks like it’s only available in Europe right now. I tried to ask “Anna”, their online service bot, when we’d be getting the play kitchen in the U.S. but she was kind of rude and gave me a dirty look: I wasn’t trying […]

Cute party invite idea

This came in the mail a few days ago. A candle glued to a card, with confetti inside a clear envelope. Normally I am not a fan of the confetti in the envelope, because it ends up all over the floor. But with a clear envelope, you know what you’re dealing with. Of course the […]

Dollar Spot Summer Bags

These were a few of my finds at the Target Dollar Spot on Friday (44th St. and Thomas). $2.50 each! The woven one was the perfect size to pack a little swim bag for my daughter – it held a towel, suit, goggles, and a change of clothes. This morning I used the flowery bag […]
