A few favorites for September…
I seem to be drawn to cute, strange, twee things. This mural is no exception. My ceilings are too low, otherwise, you can bet this would already be hanging in my house.
These things are really cool. We brought these out on the 4th of July and they were lovely – and glowed for nearly a month! They are probably better for kids who are a bit older than mine; the warnings inside (what is IN there? Glass? Chemicals?) were a little frightening. But I will definitely buy them again.
I have a collection of dish towels but it is probably time to spring for some good, flannel towels for use around the house. I like the fun patterns, and I’m sure these would pay for themselves in no time at all.
Hope your week has been great, and as Nature Cat says, “Onward and yonward!”
Happy Friday! A few more things I love on this lovely Spring day. Happy Mother’s Day to all!
Orlando Owl by Jellycat – I’m pretty sure Orlando is my spirit animal.
Better Life Bags – Beautiful, custom bags made by women in Detroit. A business with a great mission and a great product. I’m thinking I might need to order a special new bag for Mother’s Day.
Strawberry Slip-Ons by Vans – These are definitely Plum’s very favorite shoes. I love them because they are adorable, apparently comfy, and require no assistance from me to put them on. Do these come in adult sizes? Yes. Yes they do.
Longer days, things are getting greener, bugs aren’t really biting yet – hooray for May!

And now for your latest installment of TILT! Just so you know, these aren’t affiliate links, I just like this stuff.
MagnaTiles – These flat, magnetic blocks are awesome. My children play with these just about every day. We build buildings, make pizza, make rockets, the options are unlimited, and they really encourage creative play. They are even fun for parents. Downside? Super expensive.

A Sick Day for Amos McGee – I know I’m not alone in my love of this book. It is a simple (and not too long! Major perk at bedtime – I’m looking at you Mike Mulligan) book about sweet friendship and the illustrations are just lovely. We have a lot of books, and this one consistently ranks among my favorites.

Max Daniel Security Blanket – Pickle and Plum chose Angel Dear Blankies as their security blankets/lovies. I thought Pistachio would do the same. But this soft, silky blanket gifted by my sister is his lovey of choice. I can’t say I blame him. It is cozy and luxurious, and a nice size. It is pretty darn expensive for a lovey but it is his favorite.
