Smart Clothes for Kids

What a genius idea!  Ohio based T-shirt company Wire & Twine has produced a line of “Smart-Tees” for your tots.  Choose from a Fairy, Train, Robot, Cow, Dinosaur, or Skeleton.  $18USD.



They have also come out with a Green Line for babies, kids, and adults and an awesmome list of 50 Ways to Help the Planet.  To view the list, click on the picture below.

Saturday: “Laugh Out Loud”

I’m sure that like me, most of you receive an IM or email at least once a week containing a ridiculous joke, picture, or YouTube video.  Today I am paying homage to those quirky virals with my own twist.  Keeping with the catergory themes of the blog, I bring you my picks for the funniest, quirkiest, and downright weirdest creations I have come across this week.

I found this outrageous “Shark Attack Hat” in a knitting forum at Craftster, where one of their mottos is “Cute Doesn’t Need a Reason”.  Even more outrageous than the hat itself [which is actually kind of cute] is the poster’s comment, “I saw the dead fish hat pattern and loved the idea”.  Seriously?



I was first introduced to Margaux Lange’s creations when a friend of mine purchased one of her rings for his girlfriend.  They are strange, but in a good way.  Necklaces, rings, brooches, bracelets, earrings, and custom works.


If you are here in NYC, she’s going to be at the BUST Spring Fling Craftacular this Sunday in Brooklyn.


When I first came across these baby head pottery creations by Sue Kniffin Davidson of Kniffin Pottery, I was a little creeped out, but I must admit they have really grown on me and I think I totally want an upsidedown baby head bowl or mug.  I’m not sure I would eat my cereal or drink my coffee out of one, but it would definitely make for a conversation piece on the mantle or bookshelf.



And that’s it for today, folks.  Enjoy the weekend!!!

Thursday: “Get Dressed”

Little Ava [aka Furious Shirley] is just about to turn six months old and I can finally fit back into three pairs of my pre-baby jeans!  Getting back into shape has been tough – I gained close to 65 pounds during my pregnancy thanks to my, “Hey, if I’m going to get fat anyway I might as well eat whatever I want” attitude.  And unfortunately, whatever I wanted was ice cream.  I have no time to get to the gym, so I have had to come up with ways to combine working out with play time.  Ava loves watching me do floor exercises while she rolls around on her play mat.  I count reps out loud to sneak in some number fun and it amuses her to watch my legs going up and down and up and down.  I’m pretty sure it would amuse just about anyone – lol.  For cardio, I usually “dance”.  I put that in quotes because dancing consists of jumping jacks, squats, lunges, and some ridiculous flailing about in time to the music to keep the babers entertained.  So far it has been working and I am down to my last 18 pounds!  Getting dressed is probably one of the most frustrating times of the day for me because I’m not happy with the way my body looks in anything anymore.  So, today’s fashion focus is going to be accessories because a cute bracelet or bag will always be cute no matter what your weight.

I’ll start off with my favorite mother’s day gift – a personlized birthstone sterling tag necklace from MamaBethBling.  There are several variations to choose from and the price is just right at $22 USD.


And what would a post about accessories be without a great bag?  A purse is a great way to add some color and flair to any outfit and Bayan Hippo has a great collection of colorful and stylish purses that are also eco-friendly!
