What corners of the globe do you plan on exploring this year?
Friday, December 7th, 2012
71 years ago today the attack on Pearl Harbor was initiated. More than 2,400 people were killed with many more wounded in the attacks. Ships were sank, airplanes were destroyed and the following day, the United States officially declared war on Japan, thereby entering World War II. In 1994, Congress declared that December 7th would thereafter be recognized as Pearl Harbor Day, so that American citizens could reflect on the great losses that occurred on that fateful day. With subsequent loss of American lives numbering into the hundreds of thousands, Pearl Harbor Day takes on an even more somber tone.
While you cannot say that Babybox.com is exactly celebrating the day, we do want to recognize it. Perhaps with pearls? We’ve got a few of them…
Pink Freshwater Pearl Cluster & Rhinestone Drawer Knob has sparkle, shine and a timeless elegance to your furniture piece. These knobs will look amazing on a nightstand, vanity or desk in your little girl’s room. The magic is how you put it all together! No matter the room you are designing we truly believe there is a magical moment when the finishing touches all come together and create exactly the look you were going for. Country Cottage accessories and room decor items add that final touch to help create that magical ending. With a pinch of personalization and a hint of sparkle our accessories truly are unique and bring out the “one of a kind” details that our customers love. Their handcrafted accessories make a statement and leave a lasting impression for all who see them.

The Girls Heirloom Preservation Bag is recommended for long term storage. (18″ wide x 38″ long).

Wide overlapped button closure for full protection. (no oil from a zipper) Accessories may be stored in the bottom of the bag.
There is even matching Shoes Available – Beautifully constructed girl’s Christening shoe made of 100% silk dupioni, embroidered on the toe and includes a beautiful dyed-to-match ribbon rosette. With a bias tie closure. The color is slightly off-white or Champaign white.

What is the story behind this great company though? Two creative Mothers threw their hat in the ring and decided to bring their vision to the world. Sisters Lisa McLean and Kelley Farish began Bella Bliss in 1999 with an inaugral visit to a trade show in Atlanta. It was well received and the buyers wanted more the following season. Fast forward several years and this dynamic duo now has over 600 boutiques that carry their line. BabyBox.com is proud to carry and showcase their wonderful products for you today.

I know that everyone is out shopping and fighting through the crowds right now. The malls are packed and the parking lots are enough to put you on Santa’s naughty list for several years to come as you weave in and out looking for that spot closest to the door. You fly by Santa in his red and green throne, but don’t you just want to stop and go over to hug that big guy? Maybe ask him to pretty please turn back the clock, so that you can be 6 again and wish upon a star? Or at least not have to stand in line a dozen deep to get that very last iPad for your teenage son, before whisking off to the grocery store to snag fixings for cookies and a gingerbread house that you will never have time to actually make?
Yeah, us too…
You know what though? We can help.
So stay away from the malls with their insane parking lots and lineups out the door, and do your shopping with us at Babybox.com. Plus don’t forget to enter to win our Turtle Twilight Giveaway contest at http://bit.ly/hOrq8h. And to sweeten the deal;

H is for “hello” to new baby bliss.
Here is a Christening Gown to welcome the little miss.
I is for “I love you”. I can say it in so many ways.
A kiss, a hug, my passing glance; they all speak volumes of my praise.
J is for a jumper that you wear to have fun.
K is for a kangaroo that hops out of this picture to play with everyone.
L reminds us to “listen”, as the stories will be plentiful and sometimes even true. Also to always “love” the tiny creature that is YOU!
M is for the mat where you play and make merry.
Enjoy this time as the days do not tarry!
N is for nursery; the center of your world. Where you sleep, dress and play, make sure the space is a perfect place. Need I say more?
