sandwich bags

Who knew you could find such adorable reusable sandwich bags? And they're dishwasher safe too. So smart.

I saw these on Ohdeedoh and I definitely have plans to buy several. My only problem - how will I choose just a few? I love the colors, the patterns, and the overall look of these. A brilliant idea executed so elegantly. Love it.

hooray for fall

I love the fall. I love cold nights and wearing sweatshirts and not having to keep my toenails pretty. And my 2-year-old likes to remind me that Halloween is soon!

Here are a few gorgeous and not scary Halloween decoration options from Martha Stewart.

So beautiful and delicate!

Anything that combines typography and Halloween is a winner.

Happy Fall!!

greeting cards

I have such a hard time finding nice greeting cards. Mostly because I live within 2 blocks of 3 major pharmacy chains but Paper Source is a mile away (and kind of expensive, let's be honest). I was pleasantly surprised today when I went to CVS to find that they have re-organized their cards. They have a much nicer selection and they have quarantined the singing variety. It took me less than 5 minutes to find 2 nice birthday cards and a nice (and not white!) wedding card.

baby gifts

I have babies on the brain! Check out these super sweet gift ideas. I saw them on babble's family style blog.

12-pack of onesies. I would love a set of these. Such a perfect way to do a monthly photo. So cute!

Personalized hand-painted playmat. Not sure who would have the time to make one of these but I do think this is the perfect playmat.

small spaces

It can be hard to fit all of your stuff into a small apartment but when it's done well, it's inspiring. Here are a few ideas to make it easier to live in a small space.

The porch-size grill. OK, so this is a European product and is probably against every condo association's by-laws but how cute is that?! I adore it.

The stroller door handle. Brilliant and easy. My only concern is the stroller wheel dirt getting on the door. My door is a dark stained wood so no problem there!

The tiny shared bedroom. This is a problem I will be facing next year! I love the ideas found on this blog. I can only hope our solution will be so elegant!
