Gifts galore at

Miss Priss Style is another retailer that carries some of our shoes. But just take a look at some of their other offerings! An adorable personalized hooded towel, customized sippy cups and crayone name apron are among them.
These sippy cups are sweet and maybe a bit pricey but fun all the same. And if you have the extra $$ for the indulgence then go for it!

This towel is pink and green, but there is also pink and brown retro or pink and white. I love them and think Anna and John would love having their own personal towels.

The crayon apron is a great idea and again, this is just one of the styles available. Of course I chose it because it says Emma and I know Emma would have loved one of these.

Fun toys & furniture

Here are some adorable wooden toddler beds that won't break your budget. I can now say bye bye to John's plastic toddler bed and get him a much nicer one that will probably last longer. Here are a few choices we love, a cottage bed for girls and a firetruck bed for boys. At just $195 each I think the cost rivals those cheaper ones from the local off price stores!

And check this one out! A little pink wooden ride on with trailer! My Anna would love this!

One Brave Chick

Now here is a product you must see and a story you must hear (so similar to ours at Snanimals.) One brave chick was formed by a group of ladies who all have suffered but perservered. Headed by a mom who has lost 2 of her children, this is a cause worth supporting. I bought 3 shirts today (for me, my daughter and my niece) let's get the word out!
