    Under the Sea

    Monday, April 30th, 2012

    Under the Sea…
    Let’s escape just you and me!
    We can swim way down below
    watch fishies swimming to and fro.
    Catch a ride on a sea horse’s tail
    and maybe dine with a great gray whale.
    So why not join me everyone
    As we dip & dive with a pod of dolphin
    Today’s the day at for
    an under the sea theme with so much more…


    So let’s dive right in and make a splash. There’s fish about that will make you laugh (like this cute puffer fish). This personalized puffer fish pattern lap tee shirt will look adorable on your little girl. Designed with purple, light pink and orange puffer fish print, it is classic and unique. Each lap tee short sleeve shirt is designed with convenient envelope shoulder opening and is best suited for children ages 3-18 months old. Made from 100% cotton and easy to care for. The shirts are available in your choice of several colors: navy, pink, red, lavender, baby blue, brown, gray or white. And as with our other personalized tees, this shirt comes in a wide variety of sizes and styles to accommodate all tastes.


    You have to be quick, with the sea horses here. A ride with this one will leave you grinning from ear to ear. This “Lime Seahorse” wall art from Oopsy Daisy by Carter Carpin depicts a seahorse in the ocean in beautiful shades of lime and blue. 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, Carter Carpin with biography attached to the back.


    If you care to dine with that gray whale, then you will need one of these placemats to keep your space clean. This Under the Sea personalized placemat has an adorable octopus which will make any child look forward to setting the table at mealtime. Perfect for home, eating out or traveling! Each placemat measures 18″ x 12″ and is sealed with 10 mil heavy weight laminate for durability and ease in cleaning. Design is carried over onto the back of the placemat. Personalized with child’s first name for no additional charge.

    For the ultimate gift, add the matching personalized 10″ melamine plate to make a fun and colorful place setting for mealtime! The plate is dishwasher safe; however it should not be used in the microwave.


    But we all know that the dolphins are the king of the sea. So you simply cannot beat a snuggle with one of these! Part of the charm of this personalized ocean commotion blanket is that each is handmade. Each design is hand-traced and cut by hand, and a lot of attention to the special requests made for each blanket. As a result, it generally takes four to six weeks for an order to be completed.

    Each blanket is machine washable and safe to put in the dryer. To keep your blanket looking like new, we recommend washing it on the gentlest cycle, tumble drying on low and removing promptly when dry. Blankets come in sizes mini, crib, toddler, stadium, twin and tummy.

    Mooning Over You

    Friday, March 9th, 2012

    While the moon is full once a month, it always amazes me how beautiful it can really be. This week the moon has been waxing towards full and it is just breath-taking to spy every time. Something I notice, as do my children as we scurry from activity to activity. With Babybox’s Trunk show coming to an end on Wednesday, I couldn’t help but feel like it gave us a little boost this year. Yes, the show was spectacular and I hope for those of you who stopped by to visit, you enjoyed it as much as we did.

    Organizing for Thanksgiving

    Friday, November 18th, 2011

    I have been so focused on starting my Christmas shopping that I almost forgot about Thanksgiving! Goodness, but that certainly comes first. Time to switch gears, I guess. I need to think about turkey and the trimmings, rearranging the room to fit in all the guests and putting fresh linens on the spare bed for overnight guests. Plus maybe allow myself a moment or two to reflect on being thankful for all that I have. That might have to come next week though, as right now I need to get busy organizing!


    First step, let’s think about who will be here. Between us and various aunts, uncles and cousins, I think we will need more seating. We just won’t all fit around the dining table this year, I fear. That means extra seating and I have just the thing – my art for kids antoinette bench!

    The Antoinette Bench with Patina finish by Art for Kids is an elegant accent to any room. The bench features beautiful handcrafted woodwork and an upholstered seat. It is shown here with custom fabric. This piece is custom done in patina upfinish. The style is also available in many different finishes. And at Width: 46″ x Depth: 17″ x Height: 16 1/2″, it will be sure to fit a couple of people on Thanksgiving!


    In fact, now that I think about it, we could put the kids at their very own table! That will make them happy and the rest of the adults will be able to eat in peace for a few minutes too. In theory anyway!

    Both you and your children can enjoy this decorative and practical Vintage Table and Chairs set by Art For Kids. The table and chairs are crafted from birch and alder woods. It is available in many motifs and finishes. A great place to play and a great way to accent your child’s room. You can even encourage the kids to set their table themselves with their own special centerpieces and fancy settings.  They will think they are so grown up and sophisticated. Perfect!


    Oh, and I have just the thing for table settings! How about our personalized melamine tableware! Cute and functional, all in one. Our preppy cards melamine plates and bowls tableware are the perfect choice for design and ease at mealtime. Forget paper and china! Opt for colorful and reusable melamine tableware instead. Better for the environment than their disposable counterparts, breaking. Concerned parents can take comfort in knowing that these are made from BPA-free plastic [no Bisphenol-A], so they are safe for kids and grown-ups alike. Plus, they can be personalized, have optional backgrounds and patterns, as well as being available with any of our icons. Another thing checked off the list.


    And what else did I have to do? Oh yes, freshen up the spare bedroom. Time for some new bedding! And they deserve only the best with our king size gordonsbury bedding – beetles and bees.

    This Beetles and Bees (King) bedding set by Gordonsbury features the company’s legendary attention to quality and detail. Each piece of bedding is skillfully hand embroidered on pure cotton or linen. Harmonious vibrant thread colors are used to interpret and give life to the adorable beetles and bees motif and theme. The set will add a classic and elegant flair to any room!

    Now, I can finish off the room with a pretty bouquet of flowers on the bedside table to make our guests feel pampered. Lovely. No time to linger though, as now I have to get cracking in the kitchen. I think I hear a turkey gobbling my name. Have a great weekend!


    Warm Thoughts

    Friday, October 28th, 2011

    Brr, there certainly is a nip in the air! Forget Autumn, I suspect that Old Man Winter will be knocking on our door before we know it. I swear I even saw my breath this morning when I was getting the kids ready for school. While you might have pulled out the sweaters, jackets and hats, have you thought about warming up your house too? I am not talking about the furnace (although I have turned mine on already!). I am thinking more along the lines of warming up your decor. Here, let me show you;


    Why don’t we start with the floor. Those beautiful hardwood floors shine in the summer, but can be a little chilly first thing in the morning when you are running to the bathroom. Why not warm up the floor with this beautiful area rug. The colorful Sky Dots Rug by DwellStudio is the perfect floor covering for any room. The cheerful circle pattern will transform your child’s space into a bright and cheery place. Made from fine wool in a variety of aqua hues, this rug adds a unique touch to your decor. The sky dots rug is designed to coordinate with the Dwell Studio bedding and crib collections or it works by itself!


    Why is it that you don’t want to get out of bed in the first place? Why, because you are nice and toasty warm under your new duvet of course! Everyone knows that duvets offer a warmth unparalleled in the winter. This duvet is no different. Little House Bandana Breeze Duvet adds a delightful touch to a girls decor. The cheerful print fabrics in 100% cotton are classic and fun. The duvet features Bandana Breeze Duvet fabric reversing to Euro Stripe Breeze. Add matching pillowcases, bed skirt and pillows to create a fabulous room.


    Another reason not to get out of bed is because it is still so dark in the morning! I don’t know about you, but if the sun isn’t up yet, its still night time in my world. One way to fix that is by adding a little more light on the scene. Presto, we have the gold crystal dangle lamp-green floral bouquet shade. The Gold Crystal Dangle Glass Ball Lamp Base is an elegant lighting fixture for any room. The base features delicate crystals hanging from the center of the lamp base. The green dupioni silk large shade is beautifully adorned by hand with silk ribbon and pearls.

    (*Psst! We just wanted to let you know that is also offering Complimentary Ground Shipping on all Lighting Orders at this time. Please enter coupon freeship at check out.)


    And our last suggestion is to warm up the walls in your home. Sure you could paint everything red and feel the heat that way, but what about a nice warm picture to remind you of warmer days instead? These boys know what they are doing with that roaring fire they have going! It will be sure to warm your heart on the coming cold winter nights. This “Campfire Kids” wall art from Oopsy Daisy by Maria Carluccio is an incredibly detailed portrayal of a group of adventurous young boys taking on nature. 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 with no glass to break and is equipped with a wire hanger on the back for easy wall displaying. No additional framing is necessary. Each canvas is decoratively finished along the 3/4 inch thick sides. 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 Maria Carluccio and it comes with her biography attached to the back.
