I just adore these video game crochet scarves. Too cool! $150 at Urban Princess.
These little stuffed owls are so adorable. I love the colors, the patterns and the textures. They are the perfet thing to brighten up your nursery. I have seen them first hand and they are also very well made. My three year old is destructo and I would let her play with it. Everything seems very sturdily attached. There are six color schemes to choose from so head on over to B.Delicious and check them out. $28
Psst! They also have some super cute infant/toddler tees. See them here.
What a funky looking umbrella! But its unique design allows you to cut through strong wind (up to 70 mph!). Plus it's supposed to be, according to the site, "practically unbreakable." €49.95 at Senz. Unfortunately for our American readers, this product is only available for our readers in the European Union (readers in the Netherlands get free shipping!)
I can't tell you how many times I buy fresh herbs for cooking and the leftover just wilt and die a few days later. This Herb Savor keeps herbs fresh for up to 3 weeks! $34 at A + R.
Today's Theme: Kitty Cats
I tend to post a lot of products that feature doggies or birdies or frogs, but rarely ever post about cat-themed products. So today's post is all about our feline friends.
Some Etsy Hints for the Etsy newbies: If the item shown here is sold out browse around their shop. There may be the same or similar items for sale. (If all else fails, convo them and ask) If you don't have an Etsy acount you will need one but it is super easy to sign up. Most sellers take paypal. You can use your paypal account or pay with a credit card through paypal. Easy! (It works a lot like Ebay)
LaLa Mobile $52 (I really want one of these!)
Aww! Remember these little guys?
(More cute retro designs here)
This is the most clever scarf I have seen in awhile. SO CUTE!
Why did I not know of this Etsy store when I was pregnant? They have cute maternity tees with pretty graphic prints which was exactly what I was always searching for. They are affordable too! The shirts don't look like tents either!
I had to post this funny "Can't Touch This" one cause it made me laugh. $20
Ah, I still remember playing my Atari at grandma's house. When I first got Atari I thought it was the coolest thing ever. I loved that joystick! $20 at 80s Tees.
Oh my, does anyone know if this grout and tile marker really works? I have some grout that needs "freshening" up. Comes in white, gray or beige. $12.99 for 2 at Whatever Works.
It's so hard to find a unique baby mobile..believe me..I have searched and searched! I love this starry night hand felted baby mobile by Meghan Shannon. You can choose green, ivory or peach owls. $72 at Shop SCAD

Love Abe Lincoln? Of course you do! This sage green Lincoln cameo wallet is for all you Abe lovers. This vegan suede wallet has Abe's profile etched into the wallet which gives the pockets a cool look. $40 at scabby robot.
I posted these because I know how much Sharla loves mugs like these. These oversized mugs with a little ceramic creature inside are cute, but my favorite is the tiny mouse with the heart - would be great to serve hot cocoa to a loved one! $24.98 at Hearth Song.
