Sorry to say, Sigg bottles contain BPA

Oh how I hate that this is true, but Sigg’s CEO posted a letter on their web site stating that the epoxy liners in their bottles produced before August 2008 contain trace amounts of BPA. Yes, these are the same bottles my kids have been drinking out of for years, and that I have given […]

Make a mini garland from paint chips

The last time I was in Pottery Barn Kids, I picked up a little paint swatch book. It was in a big basket and it was free. I wasn’t looking for a paint color, but I thought I could find a use for a book full of pretty little papers. After making garlands for the […]

Happy Monday

Well the lollipop birthday party was a success! I’ll try to get all the photos up tomorrow. This is the cluster of lanterns and poufies that we hung above the table. Both my computer and I were sick today, so I didn’t get much accomplished other than making it through the day. In self-horn-tooting news, […]

fold

I love the little wire creatures and creations made locally by Miro Chun. They adorn the cover of 5″ x 5″ notecards, which are like little works of art. Check out all the intricate choices at the online store. They’re $11 each, which seems like a lot for a card, but not so much for […]

Kids Desk

Is Kindergarten too early for a desk? If not, my son would freak out (in a good way) for this super orange desk. Although reviewers say the orange is more subtle and “pumpkiny” in person. It’s also available in pink, blue, green, and natural/black. The price is pretty good too – especially if you compare […]
