  1. Sweet Cookie Bags

    January 7, 2012 by barbara

    I am helping a friend to look for some ideas for her daughter’s birthday party which will be held next month.  Her daughter is turning 4.  While I was at Etsy, I chanced upon some very cute cookie bags and packaging which I think my friend could use since she intends to serve cookies at the party.   I really like them and I hope my friend does too.

    January 3, 2012 by barbara

    Besides helping a friend to look for heated car seat covers, I am also shopping for hostess gift.  My cousin is hosting a dinner party next weekend at her home.  It is a family get-together party and I would like to present her with a hostess gift.  I was at Jonathan Adler and came across this lovely Elephant Butter Dish.  Ain’t that cute?   My cousin is an elephant lover like me and I am sure she would like this gift.

    Aren’t this the cutest?  It is the Jelly Mouse Flat from Marc by Marc Jacobs.   They are great for rainy days and when you do not feel like wearing your rainboots.   This flat is made of rubber and has rubber soles. The toes are adorned with lil mouse ears, eyes and even whiskers.  There is also a tail pattern at the heel.  Walking has never been this fun.  The Jelly Flats are also available in Black, White and Yellow.

  4. Wedding Gifts Shopping

    December 26, 2011 by barbara

    Christmas celebration is over.  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  I had a great time with friends and families these past few days.  I have been eating way too much since Christmas Eve too.  Now it is back to work time for the next few days until it is time to bid farewell to 2011.  In the meantime, I do have to start looking for wedding gifts online. My good friend is getting married in a few month’s time and it is better to start shopping for a wedding gift now. I am planning to get her a meaningful gift, such as this “Home Is Where Your Story Begins” Canvas from Personal Creations.

    While the man was busy shopping for gps trailer tracking, I had my hands or more like my eyes full with Bagatelles and Co.  They have such a lovely range of sweet handbags.  I am in love!    The bags at this Etsy store have a vintage feel to it.  I wish I could buy all of them.  If only Santa would grant my wish this Christmas.  Take a look at these lovelies.
