Non-Guilty Wrapping Paper! December 24, 2010

Ok, so I am a freak about recycling and the amount of waste during the Holidays.  From the amount of packaging on children’s toys to peanuts found in a shipping box……to throw on MORE waste with wrapping paper nearly throws me into a panic……..

I found some newspaper in the recycling bin and went to work…..

I was really excited how they were looking, but they needed something…….I found an old red tablecloth…..BOWS!  (Clementine colored little pictures for the tags:)

I am super psyched on how they turned out!  And NO unnecessary EXTRA garbage!  YEA!

Try and conserve everyday!
Happy Holidays!!




Back to School with Vintage!!! September 18, 2010

Ok, so it had been FOREVER since my last post.  I am surprised my account was still open;o

Anywhoo…….kids are going back to school and Clementine is starting her first real “preschool” on Monday!  (yay!!!)  So I was hunting for some sweet little finds for her and came across some seriously ADORABLE vintage items, that someone MUST own!!!

These were what started it all off for me and my hunt for children’s vintage shoes.  I bought these for Clementine about a year ago and she has been wearing them ever since!  So super cute and I tell Robbie that it is important for her to have ‘different’ things because it keeps her ‘quirky’;)

Beat the Heat (or at least pretend to) July 7, 2010

Ok, so here in Buffalo, it is so hot I cannot even stand it!  I decided to find a few fun things that help me forget about how hot I am 🙂

For the kiddos!!  Bring along on a picnic to keep your kids  imagination going!

A favorite lunch combination of play foods, it looks good enough to eat! A delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich made with the unique Royal Rugrats bread. Each slice feels just like the real thing and has hand stitching for the entire crust! A side of tortilla chips with a fun scalloped edge and the brand new peanut butter and cracker snack to complete this lunch set. Crackers are made of a double layer of eco fi felt and hand stitched edges stuffed with peanut butter spread. So many ways for your Royal Chef to enjoy pretend cooking or getting ready for their own imagination picnic!

Felt Play Food Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich with Crackers and Tortilla Chips

For your wall!

This is just the most ADORABLE print I have ever seen!!  In fact, the whole shop is so fabulous!!  So bright and fun!

Wheeee! It’s Banana Surfing!

Banana Surfing

AGGGHHHHHHH!!!  LOVE this so much!!  Mikiep’s prints are just so adorable and sweet, I could browse through them all day!!

Do you remember the good old days when you were young 🙂 After finishing a “MMMM good” Can of Soup, You would go out in the backyard with you BFF and make yourself a String telephone. It would always amaze me that is would actually work Aww to go back in time when a couple can and a string would entertain me for hours 🙂

Lets Play Telephone

Get in those bathing suits!!!  If you are lucky enough to need one, I would recommend visiting  FABULOUS!!!!  I want every single one!  And the photos are just to die for!!

She is really comfortable, and she’s perfect for you if you like to be active in your swimsuits. You would feel pretty secure wearing her eventhough she is a tube suit, but she also comes with hot pink strings that are detachable so you can wear her either way you like.


Put on your favorite summer dress and have a drink!  (and if you don’t have one, visit ;P)  hehehe  OR this fabulous Etsy shop, !  They have some really sweet and fun things!!!  I want to live in this bubble dress!!!

Orange Flowers Bubble Dress

Well, I hope you had fun looking at some of my favorite summer picks!!
