School Gear

27 Jul

I know it might be early, but Pottery Barn Kids is already showing back to school gear! I just had to go in and check it all out! Pottery Barn Kids always has the cutest stuff, right?

Plus I had to check out their latest collection of furniture, bedding & so much more!

Mini backpacks, small backpacks, large and rolling! Plus some adorable prints and collections to pick from!


Some cool options for the boys! Gray snake and gray snakeskin shown below:

Bedroom inspiration to delight anyone!


Here is a good look at all of the Gear!

Small, Large, and Rolling backpacks feature an MP3 player pocket cutout for headphone cords.

Personalization is available for an additional $7.00.

  • Mini backpack holds a snack, a change of clothes, and a favorite toy.
  • Small backpack holds a lunch bag, two small notebooks, two books and a water bottle.
  • Large and Rolling hold a lunch bag, a large notebook, two small notebooks, several books and a water bottle.
  • Rolling backpack features sturdy wheels and straps that can be stored behind a fabric panel when used as a rolling backpack.



Keep food as fresh and tasty as when you packed it. Each container has a freezable pack that fits inside the lid, and the dual compartment makes room for snacks and sides.


Packed for Adventure!


Stainless steel containers

These extra-durable designs keep food fresh while kids are on the go. Made of stainless steel with snug plastic lids, they come in a variety of sizes for snacks, sandwiches and more.

  • Mini: 2″ square, 2″ high
  • Small: 3.5″ square, 2.5″ high

Kids will love taking their gear and supplies to school, or toys to outings, in their brightly printed backpacks. They come in fun new designs, and are rugged and roomy. They’re constructed with lots of pockets, exterior straps and gear loops that keep everything in place.

So many fun patterns! Might be smart to have your little one pick their favorite now to ensure they get exactly what they want! Helps get them excited for school!

Let me know how you do!

Happy Shopping!

Grilling Season is here!

29 Apr

Hot barbecue + cold drinks = good time. Plan a perfect BBQ for a holiday or for any day.

Enjoying the beautiful weather and the company of friends is what barbecues are all about.

If you can cook it in the kitchen,
you can cook it on your grill.

First up is to make sure you have a grill! Don’t forget about all of the great options that Sear’s has available!!


You also have to make sure you have the proper seating for your guests!  Sears also has a good amount of options in that department!


For your non-meat-eating guests, your menu should include plenty of grilled veggies. Skewer green and red peppers, eggplant, and zucchini, brush with olive oil and cook them directly on the grill. Wrap corn on the cob in foil and toss them on as well for corn that is crisp and juicy.

A great place to checkout for your bbq essentials is Sur La Table!  Cookbooks, grill cleaners, mesh grilling baskets, tools, aprons and marinades!




There is always the issue of what to wear… Generally BBQ’s go all day into night, so you want to be prepared!

Be sure to bring warmer items like sweaters or wraps, since it can get a little chilly after sundown.

A colorful cardigan from Lands End might do the trick!  After you buy your grill or patio set, head on upstairs to Lands End! (Don’t forget it is there!!)


So, there you go… a bunch of different things you can snag at the Mall! Who knew they had all your bbq essentials!

Happy Spring!!!

It’s Time To Take it Outside!

Create the ideal Place Setting…

19 Nov

With Thanksgiving right around the corner, I thought it would be nice to stop into Crate and Barrel to see how they set the table for festive gatherings with friends and family…

They always have everything you need to take your celebration to the next level.

I loved all their pumpkin accents…

Fall’s favorite shape gets the bronze for gleaming good looks as a centerpiece or festive room accent. $7.95 – $19.95

I love how adorable this place setting is! The utensils in the pumpkin are such a sweet touch!

I even enjoy just looking for inspiration and for new ideas!

Candles, flatware, serving platters, bread baskets, casseroles, table cloths, napkins… and so much more!

I love just looking at the decorative accents!

I ended up browsing through the whole store… how could I not! There is just so much to take in….

Accessories make the room…

18 Aug

I recently moved, so I have been on the hunt for so many things for my new home…

On this visit to Natick, I knew it was a necessity to stop into Crate and Barrel to see what I might find!

One of the many things on my list is new bedding for my room. So I wanted to explore what Crate and Barrel offered…. It didn’t take me long at all!! I had already seen this Ludina set a couple of times, once in a catalog and once online.  I was instantly drawn to it and decided to take advantage of the tax free weekend and go for it!  I had to order it, so I can’t wait for it to come in and try it out in my room! I hope it works!!

I also wanted to check out their furniture since I need so many pieces still to fill my home.  

There was one piece that definitely caught my eye…  I liked these bar stools, so the girls tested them out for me….

I’m also into the Chair and  a half (an oversized chair).  So, I had Ava try this out for me…. Notice the fun take on tangerine tango!  :)  It comes in a lot of other color options as well!

Here is a look at some other things available through Crate and Barrel:

So, it was a successful visit! I accomplished finding some bedding for my master bedroom and got a good look at some other pieces that I will seriously consider.  I could have spent all day in this store!  All the great throw pillows and great accent pieces were calling my name!!  Plus, I didn’t even enter the kitchen section! 

I will probably be back VERY soon… Well, I will be to pick up my new bedding… and will maybe buy curtains and some throw pillows to match?? I can’t forget to check out their rugs too…. Uh-oh… I’m in trouble!!🙂

After all, accessories MAKE the room!!!

(Just like they make the outfit!!)

 I’ll be sure to keep you posted!😉
