Take-a-Look Tuesday

I got some new buttons recently...a little bagful of goodies that I just cannot stop looking through over and over again!

I made some new rings with my new buttons as well. My favorite is this one:

And here are a couple more:

I'm also having a sale through January 1 if you want to get your hands on some of these little goodies. See my shop announcement for details! http://acrossthepond.etsy.com

Mailbox Monday

I got these a long time ago from The Little Love Bug on Etsy, but since they were a Christmas present for the baby, I haven't really had a chance to play with them until now.

LOOK. It's felt food. I got the whole set...it's got all sorts of fruits and veggies, breakfast food, snack food, sandwiches, pasta, and even a little pita pocket! OMG, is it cute! My favorite is the butter with the little wrapper that peels off. Evren opened the box on Christmas morning and the first thing he did was reach in, grab a cookie, and try to take a bite. The look on his face when he got a mouthful of felt instead of chocolate was priceless! I put a little plastic plate and some baby forks in the bag with the play food, thinking we'd pretend restaurant, but I think he's a little too young for that. When I put the food on the plate, he does the same thing he does with his real food. Flings it across the room. He'll get it eventually (I hope!).

Mailbox Monday

While I was out of town for Thanksgiving, the cutest little thing got popped into my mailbox!

This is an I-Spy bag that I got for Evren for Christmas. It's a cute little bag with a clear window that he can look into ans see all sorts of neat little things. When he gets older, he can use the list to search for things specifically. It's loads of fun, and I had to steal it away from Mehlynn (to look at it myself, of course). There is even a set of beads with the letters of his name!

Visit The Diaper Cake Factory here. http://diapercakefactory.etsy.com/ Not only does DeAndra have these adorable little I-Spy bags, she also makes beautiful diaper cakes which are awesome, useful, and unique gifts for baby showers. I've made several diaper cakes for showers I've gone to, and we'll just say that the *cough* effort was really appreciated. DeAndra's are beautiful though!
