Heirloom quality basket

Visit for this most unique and special basket. Here is their description:

This lovely powder blue basket was thrown on the wheel. After it was leather dry, a foot was trimmed and the graceful wrapped handle was applied. The basket was then hung upside down until dry enough for the handle to remain upright. A little bunny was pressed into the wet clay, and then the basket was fired. A studio made glaze was applied to the basket and a white underglaze to the bunny. Next it received the cone 6 firing (2232 degrees Fahrenheit) in the electric kiln.

Use this basket for your most special Easter gifts. Fill with candy or flowers. Can be used year round, or just brought out every Easter. Will become a heirloom for those special memories.

Diaper Rash Spray

Great idea from

Soothe a rash covered bottom in one easy step. No more messy hands, no more rubbing, scrubbing or upsetting the baby.

Our Diaper Sprayz do what they say, they Spray!Our breakthrough formula sprays onto baby's delicate skin thus eliminating rubbing a sore bottom. This balm sprays a fine mist of healing ointment on affected areas only, so that means no more using too much rash cream by mistake! This balm is designed to be used at every diaper change to treat current break out and prevent new ones from forming.

To use, spray a liberal amount on to baby's bottom after each diaper change. It there is no rash, this ointment will help prevent one from starting but if there is already a rash present, the Diaper Sprayz will work quickly on clearing it up and bringing relief to your little one. Our Diaper Sprayz are a non barrier treatment that allows the air to reach the skin so that healing may occur faster.Birdz and Beez Diaper Sprayz are all natural with no artificial preservatives.

We use no artificial colors and a very gentle formula that includes essential oils and aloe vera to help heal aggravated skin.

Caboose Diaper Potty

Check this out at! The Caboose Diaper Potty! $19.00
The Caboose is compact, a mere 2.5" tall when closed, and 4" tall when ready for use. It is 8" x 10" and weighs just under a pound. There is room to store a diaper when closed. Any size diaper works in the potty. If you don't have any diapers, you can still use the potty, although that defeats the genius of the Caboose. The carrying bag has a sturdy handle, it zips open quickly and has a small fabric insert to ward off odors.

What to do on a snowy day (inside!)

It's a snowy day here in Delaware. We've already been out to shovel the walk and build a snowman. Now we're back inside. Here's some ideas of some fun things to do:


Snow Day! What to Do When You're Stuck Inside...Again

You know what it's like. Bad weather hits in the fall and it seems festive. You make cocoa and almost relish a chance to dress a little warmer. In December, it's part of the holiday spirit. In January, it's getting a little old. By February, you look outside and contemplate setting the neighbor's porch on fire just to have a little warmth and excitement. (I'm just kidding, really! My neighbors don't have a porch.)So, to save neighbors everywhere, here are a few things we do to stay sane when it's too *%$& cold.

Print out paper dolls and costumes (they're available all over online-- use any search engine). Color them and cut them out. I actually get into coloring the outfits more than my daughter does! You can find movie characters, period outfits, fairies, you name it. Kids can make stories and act them out too.

Give kids playdough or any homemade dough, plus lots of cookie cutters, rolling pins and various things to poke and scoop with. While playdough can get dull, if you alternate the tools to play with it, you keep toddlers interested in it a lot longer.

Books! We manage to tunnel out and make it to the library, plus our house is stocked with oodles of fun kid books. Story time is always a hit with my two year-old, and I make sure to have books that I actually enjoy reading over and over.

Baths... but that's another article. ;)

Bake cookies, bread or something else that kids can help with at little risk. Toddlers love getting to help knead dough! You can even put their initials in the top, and the smell when it's baking will make the house smell heavenly.

Play ball. Roll it from person to person, try tossing it into a laundry basket, or try to "bowl" over a line of toys.

Have a silly day. From the time you get up, dress everybody silly in loud, clashing clothes. Play 50's music or something equally upbeat. Make something weird for breakfast like pizza, then make breakfast for lunch. Encourage kids to think of weird stuff to do and backward ways to play with their toys. Style hair with gel in goofy ways and let the kids wear lipstick, or whatever strikes your fancy.

Sit and talk. Some of our best times have been on lazy days where my girls and I sit in a pile on the couch and I answer questions about why TV's don't have bones and what bears eat.

Beautiful Memory Blanket

I really love this idea, it is beautiful and makes quite a piece to hold on to. My friend Pam does the same idea with Bears ( You'd have to request one.

But here is the information from on this blanket:

Do you want an item that will remind you of those precious days past when yo

ur child was just a little one? Do you want a super soft, warm blanket that your child can cuddle under at night time, or something that can be treasured when they are older? Then this is it!

After putting away some of my daughters' old sleepers, I decided I couldn't bear to part with them. I remembered how sweet my little girls' looked in their onsies and sleepers, and I wanted to be able to cherish those memories forever. So, I decided to make them into blankets that my children could cherish for years on end (and also bring back nostalgic memories for me as well!).

I can do the same for you too! Just pack up any washed sleepers, tees, onsies, etc. that you would like to see made into a large blanket. I recommend sending between 7-15 articles of clothing (if sending only onsies, send 12-15).Ship them to me, and I will cut them into squares/rectangles and create a blanket out of them that will rekindle memories for years to come!

Depending on size of clothing and how many you send me, the blanket will be roughly 36-40" wide x 36x40" long. You choose the backing and border from either chenille (in pink or white), velvet dot/bubble fabric (in white, pink or light blue) or fleece (in light blue, dark blue, red, pink, yellow or lavender).

Keen Sandals for kids

I posted about Keen sandals last year and here I am again. I did get a pair for both John and Anna and we loved them. They are so durable (would use them again if they still fit---you know, Anna's just might!) The shoes definitely outlast the kids in this case. Kids can run and play, go in the water, play on the beach and the shoes last. Comfortable too and stay on their feet!! A bit pricey ($40 - $50) but worth it. Go to and get free shipping!
