Children start to lose their baby teeth as early as 4 years old. When that happens, a visit by the Tooth Fairy is a big event in a child’s life. The tooth will be picked up by the Tooth Fairy and in exchange, it will leave a reward for the lost tooth. Teeth awaiting pickup can be kept in this adorable Tooth Fairy Pillow from Ultimate Tooth Fairy. The pocket is just inside the case and it is just the right size for holding the little tooth. This pillow features a unique design of an owl and birds on pink blossom branches and the phrase “Whooo lost a tooth today? Before your child calls it a night just place this cute pillow next to him or her to create a memorable experience.

Recently, I received some photos of my friend and her family. She also sent me photos of her daughter who has just celebrated her 18th birthday. In one of the photos, she was surrounded with presents and flowers. One bouquet that caught my eyes is the beautiful Gainesville flowers. Since they live in Florida, this flower arrangement is very popular there and it is from a well-known florist. I also came across very nice bows on her presents. As I am still looking for some gift wrapping ideas, I browsed Martha Stewart’s craft blog and saw this cute wrap and bow which was created using extra bits of paper. No ribbons are needed to create it.

While the man was checking out the 5.1 home theatre system which he hopes to get for his birthday that is less than a month away, I have been looking online for some great ideas on how to wrap presents the d-i-y way. Yes, there are many presents to be wrapped for Christmas and birthdays coming up. I was browsing the internet and came upon this really neat gift wrap idea from Manmadediy.com. Just use a plain craft paper and cut out the alphabets of the recipient’s name from books that you do not want. I like this idea very much and I am going to give it a try.

While my husband was talking on the phone with his brother about sirius satellite radio, I was at the computer doing some online shopping for clogs. I heart clogs. A wardrobe staple during the summer, the clogs are still highly popular in winter. We just need to wear it with a pair of heavy patterned socks or tights. Would you wear them in the cold months? I adore the clogs from www.miljoshop.com.

I am going crazy over the kids’ collection at J Crew. I feel like buying everything for my daughter. Their collection is simply awesome. I love their tops, skirts, shorts and dresses. Not forgetting their fabulous ballet flats for girls. Oh I am just giddy with excitement. There is so much to buy but so little money. Here are a few of my favourite outfits.
