I have 6.5 years of labeling experience now and I can state with confidence that my favorite labels are the Stick-eez Clothing Labels made by Oliver’s Labels. They are meant for clothing, but I’ve put them on everything. They are tiny (a feature I prefer) and they survive the washing machine just as well as they survive the dishwasher. The designs are great and totally customizable. We are currently loving the Eric Carle “Brown Bear” themed labels. Plum was two before I figured out that if I put only my family’s last name on the labels I could use them for the entire family! (Duh.) They aren’t cheap, but they are worth it (says the woman who has recently purchased 3 replacement water bottles because she forgot to label the first two. Ugh.)
One-Man Band Toy by Vilac
What a cool toy! I might even travel to France to buy a few of these for my nieces and nephews. C’mon, what kid wouldn’t love this?! I do think, however, that the parents of said nieces and nephews are probably glad this toy is so far away and so hard to get.
I’m pretty sure good bread with good butter is one of the world’s most perfect things. Truly. Simple and indulgent. You have to try these amazing butters made in Maine by the Casco Bay Butter Co. I’m a sucker for the traditional sea salt, but every one I’ve tried is excellent. Blue cheese butter melted over a steak? Garlic and herb butter stirred into mashed potatoes? Yes, please!
(Links are for your convenience only. I don’t get any money – or free butter – for recommending this stuff, it is simply stuff I think is great.)
