We spend our time looking for cool stuff so you don't have to. Hope this one fits the bill.

This Little Light of Mine

OwlThere’s a few things you don’t realize the importance of until after you have kids. Okay, there’s a lot of things, but as of late, it’s night lights. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I’m pretty certain our new toddler bed child will be making her way to our room on more than one occasion. So, she might as well find it in style.

Your Greatest Masterpiece

Let me guess: The baby’s room is a dream come true – wallpapered and bordered, with hand-painted initials hanging from the wall. It’s perfectly coordinated, straight out of a magazine. The funny thing is, your 6 week-old does not care if his Moses basket matches his crib sheets, matches his diapers matches, his curtains. Liven things up a little!

These Designs are a Chou-In

Chouette2While I love the loose picture inserts in announcements and holidays cards, I find that it’s very hard for the picture to actually make it out of the card and onto my fridge without getting crumpled, folded, or dirty.

Have a Tres Chic Earth Day

MyownbagHey, we kind of like the environment. You know, since it lets us breathe and eat and all that kind of stuff. But at the same time, we’re moms, and we know that while we want the earth to be around for a very long time, we still need things to be reasonably simple and convenient.

De-Snot in Style

Frog When you think of baby items that make you go "awwwwwwww…." humidifiers don’t exactly spring to mind. But that’s only because no one ever thought to disguise that big plastic eyesore as a panda bear.

Even Your Walls Will Thank You

LoripcowWe try so hard to decorate our child’s room with extra special pieces that we love and cherish. We don’t expect our kiddo to stop and stare at the beautiful fairy painting or vintage plane poster. Most likely, they fulfill our own obsessive need for everything to match.
