Bubble Vest

Last year it was the puffy vest. This year, it’s the bubble vest. The price has gone up by $6, but it’s still a deal compared to similar vests I’ve seen in catalogs lately. I haven’t seen this in person, but from looking at it online, white is the only color I’d go for. The […]

I was the winning bidder on a lululemon “yoga starter kit” at our preschool’s Fall Festival/Silent Auction this weekend. Yippee! Here’s what I won: (I took this picture standing on my bed and hit my head on the fan in the process.) My favorite so far is the headband. I’ve been wearing it all day […]

My new favorite lunch

I eat a variation of this salad at least three times a week. Sliced cucumbers, grape tomatoes, sometimes a string cheese cut up or chunks of avocado, fresh herbs if I have them (cilantro and mint here), and a blob of hummus. I took this picture before I stirred it all up because it’s much […]

Turn your toddler's favorite tee into a pillow

See my cute owl-loving niece Natalie hugging her new pillow? Well the owl was once on her t-shirt, which used to be my daughter’s shirt. I think my mom got it for her, so thanks mom – the shirt’s gotten a lot of mileage. Natalie’s creative mom, my sis-in-law Dana, had it made into a […]

Better do it quickly though, because I’m sure they’re busy working away to fulfill orders before Halloween! Here are a few cute ones. First, a set […]

Black Sphinx Dates

Last week I was at my parents’ house, and they offered me some fresh dates they had just bought down the road. I had seen the hand-written signs posted at the intersection of Arcadia Drive and Lafayette pointing to the Mountgrove or “date palm” neighborhood (at 47th st. and Lafayette), but I thought since they’re […]

Silikids has come out with a silicone-covered glass for kids. These are 6 oz. glasses and come in two choices of silicone colors–lime or aqua. So if you’re ready to get your kids off the plastic cups but a little afraid of putting “unprotected” glassware in their slippery little hands, this might be a good […]

THE container store

I’m working on a project that has me looking at containers, and I found a site called Container and Packaging Supply that sells just about any kind of container you can imagine. Glass, plastic, metal… you name it, they have it. I am very into packaging, so these bottles, tins and jars are so inspiring […]

Planet Pudge Long Sleeve Kids Tees

It’s almost long sleeve weather here, and I’ve been getting my Etsy fix browsing all the cute hand-made kids tees. These are some of my favorites, from Planet Pudge. They’re made by a self-described “over-caffeinated, creative-deprived mom” (love her already) who was in search of “fun, unique, modern clothes” for her girls. These fun shirts […]
