I'm so excited to start up Cantaloupe Blossoms on Etsy but I still have a lot of work to do! So, in the mean time I'm giving away free Cantaloupe Blossoms!

I know that tomorrow is New Year's Eve and it's too late for anyone to wear this to any shin-dig, but you can still win it to wear to your next party, or anytime! (Even St. Patrick's Day! It is green!)

So, for giveaway #2 I'm offering up another handmade Cantaloupe Blossom headband!

Spotlight: Wee Pereas

Last month I got THE CUTEST reusable snack bags from and Etsy shop called Wee Pereas. I can't believe I ever lived without these!

I hate throwing away zip-lock bags. It feels like a big waste of money and it's not environmentally friendly either. These bags are just the right size, they velcro tightly so no snack sneak out, and they are super easy to clean. And how cute is this fabric!?

Thank you Wee Pereas! I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new trendy and eco-friendly snack bags! They will definitely get a lot of use from my two little boys!

Halloween's over. . . Time for Thanksgiving stuff!

November 1, 2009
Why is it that the day after Halloween all of a sudden candy looses it's appeal and I no longer have a desire to seek out the strange and the frightening.

Halloween was a blast! When you have two little ones to dress up (as pirates!) the fun never ends!
But now that Halloween is over, I'm looking forward to making pumpkin pie from the beloved decorated pumpkins my kids brought home from the pumpkin patch. mmmmmm. I can smell it now.

And did I mention that I am a bit of a turkey fanatic? Fresh from the oven, roasted, juicy, sweet, turkey!

So, in honor of upcoming Turkey Day, here are some new favorite "turkey", and "Turkey Day" things.

I love the vintagey print of this adorable baby bib. This would be perfect for that little one's first thanksgiving (or second, or third.) This bib is by krispybanana

I just had to throw this one in the mix. What is it? A sucker turkey! My mom had one of these when I was just a kid and every year we would put in on top of the TV but we weren't allowed to eat the suckers. Little did mom know that we would sneak one or two every year. (OK she knew, but we thought we were pretty slick). I think some of the suckers were like 8 years old! eeew. This turkey was made by Artsinthebarn

Look at those cute little eyes and that smile. You couldn't eat a real turkey drumstick that looked at you like this. I don't know what I would do with a stuffed drumstick but it sure is cute!
This drumstick was made by Plushoff

I love this turkey sihouette "cupboard print". It is festive and sophisticated.
Print by oldglorysoldier

Need funky thanksgiving jewelry? Check out this "Peace, Love, Turkey" pendant by wickelymodpendants

Great idea for the kids on Thanksgiving day when the adults are sitting around talking about the football game and how much they ate. Some Turkey Crayons and paper will be just the thing! (by lilbooandco)

I think this one in my favorite! Do you have a little chef that loves to help you cook Thanksgiving dinner? How adorable is this Turkey Day apron and Chef hat? I love it! Cute colors and patterns and it's available in sizes 12 months to 10 years.
(by Amievoltaire)

And last but definately not least are these adorably ugly turkey earrings. I'm speechless. . .
( earrings by charlieccbb)

mmm, now I'm craving pumpkin pie and turkey. (To eat, not to wear, silly!)
