    Horsing Around

    Wednesday, May 30th, 2012

    Babybox.com is horsing around today. With school drawing to a close and summer vacation looming, we are thinking about ways to entertain the kids over the break. Ever thought about horseback riding lessons? Just a suggestion in the long line of potential summer camps for your kids. So let’s break into a trot and check out all the equine-inspired articles that Babybox.com has in stock to warm the kids up for this summer’s activities.

     

    Throw this blanket on your child’s bed and see what kind of interest you get. Wrap your little equestrian to be in this luxurious cashmere baby blanket. An adorable little horse covers the front of this luxurious single faced 100% cashmere blanket. These blankets & pillows are a baby’s first luxuries, made with love. Each blanket and pillow is made with 100% pure cashmere. Lavishly soft and cozy, each blanket comes with a matching pillow and promises to keep your little one comfortable and warm.

    Each blanket & pillow is designed using two cheerful complimentary colors of cashmere and finished with a charming applique. Your child will be racing to the stables before you can shout Whoa!

     

    Now that you have their interest, dress them up in a personalized horse tee for their first day of lessons. This personalized horse pattern classic short sleeve tee shirt (youth size) will look adorable on any boy. Designed with brown and light green horse print, it is classic and unique. Same style as our classic style short sleeve tee, but available in larger sizes for older children. Made from 100% cotton and easy to care for. If your child is interested in other colors, not to worry, as shirts are available in your choice of several colors; heather grey, white, fuchsia, black, grass green. And of course you can order baseball tees, tank tops, short & long sleeve lap tees as well as cap sleeve tees in a variety of sizes.

     

    After spending the day riding, your child will be plenty hungry at chow time, so saddle up some grub for them on this hobby horse girl plate set by Golden Rabbit Enamelware. It is fresh and festive, serving up a stylish statement. The bespeckled collection, based on original 18th century designs, is made of fine German enamel on steel and provides a convenient, eye-catching alternative for entertaining. The modern manufacturing process adds strength and durability as primers and enamels are fused to strong steel at high temperatures for chip, crack and rust resistance. For added protection, we ingeniously incorporate unique stainless steel rims to each enamelware piece. Colorful and classic, enamelware is at home in a country kitchen or striking in a high style setting. From oven to table to the dishwasher, enamelware from Golden Rabbit is fully functional without forgetting the fun. Whether mixed or matched, our array of shapes and sizes can impressively outfit any event or enhance your existing table theme. From everyday eating to endless entertaining, our enamelware provides seasonless styles for year round use: from clambakes or barbecues to Christmas buffets. It is easy to clean and store. So relax and enjoy Enamelware from The Golden Rabbit.

     

    Now set them to dreaming of future blue ribbon events and inspire them with this pleasing print. This “Equestrian Champion on Yellow” wall art from Oopsy Daisy by Donna Ingemanson pictures the champion horse and its jockey in majestic hues. This top quality canvas reproduction is made using the Giclee printing process and has the look and feel of an original painting. Each canvas is stretched over wood bars, glass-free, and comes ready to hang! No framing is required. This is the ideal surface for kids’ rooms as there is no glass to break! Artwork is finished on all sides and comes with a wire hanger for wall mounting. It can easily be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. Makes a great gift idea. Designed by artist Donna Ingemanson and it comes with the artist’s biography attached to the back.

     

    So hang a horse shoe over your lucky child’s door! It’s off to equestrian camp they go!

It is only right and proper to honor them. There will be parades, speeches and innumerable flags waving. A trip to lay flowers at the graves of the fallen is something many of you will attend to today as well, and that is as it should be.

    The men and women who work for Babybox.com will be there too. Our gratitude cannot be measured, but we can give back. Our way is through a sale. This is the last day of our special Memorial Day Sale. You can take an additional 15% off any purchases you make today. Type in the coupon code SUMMER15.

    This big Map of the U.S.A. Floor Puzzle is filled with lively colors and exciting characters. This puzzle, not only helps to develop fine motor and pre-reading skills, but it also teaches children names, shapes and fun facts about US states. Illustrations by Kaori Watanabe.

     

    Or taking a look at the country from another perspective, here is another map of the USA via license plates. This Oopsy Daisy “USA License Plate Map – Red” mural banner has an educational map of U.S.A which shows license number plates of various states in U.S.A.

    Have you thought about Teacher Appreciation gifts yet? The end of the school year is creeping up fast!

    Time to Unwind

    Monday, May 21st, 2012

    Relax.

    Don’t sweat the small stuff.

    Certainly, you shouldn’t ever cry over spilled milk.

    Most importantly breathe and let it all go when life seems to be getting you down. We all have days when we need those little reminders. If today is one of those days for you, take a moment to pause and reflect. What are you thankful for in life? Name a few things that bring you joy. And stop and be kind to yourself, even if only for five minutes. It is amazing how quickly you can recharge your batteries just by giving back to yourself. Babybox.com appreciates that sentiment and has a few suggestions of how you can be kind to yourself today.

     

    One of the fastest ways to unwind after a long day is to step into a nice hot bath. Reach for your lavender scented soap and breathe in its relaxing vapors. Your troubles will melt away as you lather up with our Lavender Signature Spa Soaps. They are some of the finest quality soaps available.

Refresh, cleanse, rejuvenate, and be spoiled with these quality personalized soaps deserving of your discerning taste.

Never ending personalization options to suit any taste level or style! A complete sensory experience.

     

    When you step out of the bath, wrap yourself in a little bit of  luxury. Here we have a sumptuously soft, cushy robe made from CozyChic®, a machine-washable microfiber that won’t ever shrink or pill. Oprah recently picked the CozyChic Adult Robe as one of her “Favorite Things”. Envelope a new mom or dad in our luxurious CozyChic® Robe by Barefoot Dreams, and discover peace and tranquility.

Barefoot Dreams® CozyChic® Robes are featured at 5-Star Resorts and Spas, and are top sellers at major department stores such as Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Fred Segal. A favorite among celebrities and the modern mom on the go! The Robe is shawl collared, double belt looped, washable/dryable, and available in 16 yummy colors defining style and comfort for him or her.

     

    If a lack of sleep is causing some of your stress, then why not think about improving your time spent between the sheets. This hypodown 700 down bed mattress enhancer by Ogallala is sure to reduce tossing and turning and add to a good nights rest. Simply putting one of these boxed down enhancers with your mattress will mean better sleep and happier mornings. The mattress enhancers conform to your body, so your muscles relax, your circulation improves, you toss and turn less.

You will be amazed at how refreshing one night on our Hypodown beds makes you feel.

     

    Some days though, the one thing that just seems to take the edge off like nothing else can is an adult beverage. Whether you prefer it on the rocks, neat or by the gallon, you can be pleased to note how lovely it looks in your new personalized old fashioned glasses. Personalize in style this Summer with our outdoor-friendly, virtually unbreakable set of 4 simple, yet stylish 14 oz Double Old Fashioned (Rocks Glasses) – a great choice for everyday drinkware.

    Flying High with Babybox.com

    Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

    “Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease”  ~Lisa Alther

    True that, Lisa! Isn’t the job of mothers to multitask through hours, days, weeks and more? While laundry is spinning, dinner is being prepped by Mom, and while the vacuum is being pushed around a child’s room, it is also being redecorated in her mind’s eye. How many times has Mom announced she is going to bed, only to wipe the counter, clean the toilet and take out the garbage on the way? Raise your hand if that is you too Mom! I suspect that an air traffic controller job would be a breeze on any given day. So spin those propellers and hold on tight ladies! Let’s play with a different toy today: airplanes!

     

    The first airplane out of the Babybox.com hanger is this cute personalized airplane pattern classic short sleeve tee shirt. It will look adorable on your little boy. Designed with red and sea blue airplane print, it is classic and unique. This classic style short sleeve tee shirt works on any child. Made from 100% cotton and easy to care for, this shirt comes in a range of sizes to fit any child (2T-6T). Shirts are available in your choice of several colors: Available in heather gray, white, navy, black, grass green, fuchsia. You also have the choice of tank tops, capsleeve tees, short & long sleeve lap tees, long sleeve tees and baseball tees. All you have to do is choose!

     

    Flying a little lower on your baby are these fantastic Tiny Toes Airplane And Train Booties By Manhattan Toys. They are absolutely adorable and feature embroidered “sounds” on the back of each bootie. They have lined interiors and easy-on adjustable hook-and-loop closures at the heel. You little aviator will love flying around the house in these airplane (and train) inspired booties.

     

    Now take to the skies with these soaring machines. This Oopsy Daisy “Sleep Tight Airplanes” nightlight portrays colorful airplanes wishing your little pilot a happy sleep. This nightlight can be easily wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth and is ideal for your child’s room as it does not have a glass surface to break. You can personalize the nightlight with your child’s name or any other word or phrase like “Good Night”. This nightlight is designed by Jill McDonald, whose biography is included with each unit.

     

    Don’t get lost in the clouds too much though. Make sure that you keep one eye on your gauges with the help of this airplane instrument panel artwork. The “Air Traffic Control” wall art from Oopsy Daisy by Aaron Christensen is a contradicting masterpiece with an abstract and modern feel while using a clean, sleek style. This top quality canvas reproduction is made using the Giclee printing process and has the look and feel of an original painting. Each piece is stretched over wood bars, glass-free, and comes ready to hang! No framing is required. This is the ideal surface for kids’ rooms as there is no glass to break! Artwork is finished on all sides and comes with a wire hanger for wall mounting. It can easily be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. Makes a great gift idea. Designed by artist Aaron Christensen and it comes with his biography attached to the back.

     

    How are you feeling now Mom? Ready for another flight or would you rather play passenger on the next flight? Here’s hoping you have blue skies to soar off into this afternoon!

    Monday Blues

    Monday, May 14th, 2012

    Monday again. How does that happen? Yesterday, I was feeling loved and pampered, now it is back to the grind. I made it through morning carpools, but still have to dream up something for dinner, help the oldest with a project that’s due this week and race back into cheer-leading roll at the sidelines of the newly started baseball season. Thank goodness I got so much love yesterday for Mother’s Day or I wouldn’t be able to face these Monday blues. Anyone else feeling blue?

    sigh… me too.

    Let’s drape the site in blue today and hope that tomorrow the sun will shine again and wipe away these blues. Who’s with me?

     

    In the meantime, I would love to wrap this pretty blue fabric around myself and all over the baby’s nursery. Maybe that is my problem? Is it Monday blues or baby blues?Well, redecorating should help the cause regardless. The Multi Dots in Blue Fabric by the yard is a great way to coordinate your baby’s nursery. We carry all the New Arrival fabrics that are used in the bedding sets. Use the fabric in your wall decorations, cribs, toys, and play areas. The Fabric comes in a width of 54″, but please note that dye lots of fabrics can vary. Please order any additional fabric yardage needed when ordering custom bedding to insure fabrics are from the same dye lot.

     

    Should we shed a little light on the day to make those blues seem not so bad? Time to flick on this Playthings Blue Spindle Chandelier, by Charn & Company. This chandelier has an antique finished applique and features our newest paigy pom pom pink lampshades. It has been developed in a rare-to-find design to embellish your child’s room. You mood will be bound to soar taking in this charming blue light added to your home.

     

    Gazing at these bright blues will chase away any dull spirits in no time as well. The “Blue Flowers in Pink Pot” wall art from Oopsy Daisy by Gale Kaseguma brightens the room with vibrant colors and shades. This top quality canvas reproduction is stretched over wood bars with no glass to break. This piece is made using the Giclee printing process and has the look and feel of an original painting. It is equipped with a wire hanger on the back for easy wall displaying so no framing is required. It can be wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth. Makes a wonderful addition to any child’s room, playroom or even beach house. Designed by artist, Jenny Kostecki with biography attached to the back.

     

    Some days we just can’t fight those blues though. On days like that, the best thing you can do is to roll with it and ride it out til tomorrow. My suggestion is wrapping yourself in this beautiful blue blanket, because who can resist cashmere? Exquisitely crafted to create a distinctively soft and comfortable feel, our cashmere baby blanket, in soft calming baby blue is made of the finest quality.

    We use only the finest cashmere — for the softest touch and the longest fiber length to resist pilling. These are the most important characteristics of any cashmere product, and make this blanket one of our most popular year after year. We feel this gives our customers something to enjoy not only from the moment they touch it, but also for years to come, retaining their strength and shape, even after lots of snuggles. For an added touch, these luxurious and timeless blankets can be customized with monogramming.

     

    Hope this helps you get through your Monday!

    Right from the start
    You stole my heart
    With arms flung wide
    and no thought to pride

     

    love for all wall art by donna ingemanson

    You strained, panted and pushed
    and I have to admit, I ambushed
    your vast and unsuspecting love,
    with that big final shove!

     

     

    Until all the world could see
    and hear the cries from me,
    As silent were your tears
    and in them held all fears

     

    baby shower favor - star is born cookie cutter

    For you saw skinned knees,
    me begging for cookies, “please!”
    My triumphs and vast failures
    like puddle jumping & resulting epic soakers

     

    puppy musical pull toy by north american bear

    But the tears of joy beat every frown
    with visions of me in graduation gown
    and playing with my best friend gooch
    (my nickname for the neighborhood pooch)

     

    And I hope you would do it all again
    Because my love for you will never wane
    You are my one and only Mom
    you are the best, you’re truly the bomb!*

     

    Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful ladies out there that made the decision to become Mommies. You made the right choice and Babybox.com loves you for it! Hope you have a wonderful weekend and are spoiled rotten from sunup to sundown!

    Now all Mom needs is five minutes of peace and quiet, perhaps a good book and definitely a comfy blanket to curl up under, as she drifts off in a happy daze of contentment. This super plush and super soft throw blanket is just the thing! In 100% cotton, it features herringbone pattern and is elegant and cozy. We love these and they are some of the softest throws in the softest colors. Cotton, when brushed, undergoes a transformation that gives it a plush, alluring texture this side of heaven. This throw blends soft color with cream in a herringbone weave and finishes it with a twisted, natural fringe. Cozy up on the couch in style and in sophistication.
