Join us in admiring the wonderful world of mechanical music.  We can not think of a better way to do so than showcasing this stunning collection of music box pianos from Music Box Attic. We are enchanted :: We are enthralled.  Piano music boxes are definitely our new obsession.  In full disclosure, I must admit I love pianos.  The very first piece of “grown up” furniture my husband and I bought together was an ebony Yamaha baby grand piano.  Yes, you read that right – we bought a piano way before a dining room table, and even before we bought sofas for our living room.  Today this same piano graces our living room, sitting smack dab in the middle of our house and continues to be a source of personal joy and hours of enjoyment for our family and friends.

Baby Grand Piano Musical Jewelry Box

Now that my children are all grown and moved out, what they say they most miss (other than mom's cooking and laundry prowess) is our piano.  So as a housewarming gift, I have bought each of them this custom baby grand wood black piano music box with jewelry space.   I picked this particular piano for three reasons:

Black Wooden Piano Musical Jewelry Box, Piano Music Boxes

……1. The price – at 42% off list price this piano music box is an incredible deal plus I received an 10% OFF since I used this month's coupon code.2. It most resembles our home piano and I was able to customize each with a song that would be meaningful to each of my children

……3.  I loved the fact that there was a small jewelry space where  the boys could keep their family heirloom cufflinks.  And where Izzy could store some of the special pieces handed down to her from her grandmothers.

Very rarely do we come across two new merchants we love in one week. Week in and week out, we are solicited by dozens of companies to “hawk” their products. We turn down 98% of them because, well simply put, we do not like their “stuff”. Most often the products are cheap and look cheap and are just plain ugly. But wow were we impressed when we started digging into both Qualtry.com's product line and Bourbon & Boots merchandise. Both companies sell unique handcrafted or personalized gifts with universal appeal. Continue Reading →

4 Memorable Milestone Birthday Presents

Cousin Alfred turned 100 this month and my mother-in-law wanted to gift him a special present worthy of a milestone birthday. She wanted ]milestone birthday presents that told a story. A gift that told his story. Specifically, she wanted a copy of the New York Times from the day Alfred was born. After a bit of back and forth, we narrowed her choices down to three: a framed front page New York Times reprint from the day he was born, The Ultimate Birthday Book – The Times of Your LifeNew York Times Special Day Book, and New York Times Custom Birthday Book. In the end mom chose the New York Times Special Day Book because it most closely embodied her original concept. All the others had either way more than she wanted or significantly less than she wanted. Continue Reading →

Today we received the best looking wedding save the date we have seen in quite some time.  It immediately brought to mind Hello Lucky, one of our favorite stationery merchants.  Turns out they recently retired their custom invitations to concentrate on greeting cards.  While perusing their new product line we happened upon these beautifully designed FREE printables for dad.  Yes they are perfect for Father's Day but hey, Dads' have birthdays and enjoy gifts at the holidays too and most Dads' deserve to be celebrated everyday!  We especially love the custom vintage style beer labels and sock bands.  What a way to make giving a ho hum pair of black socks special.

Team Spirit Booster Seats >> Big Brother & Big Sister Baby Shower Gifts

Team Spirit Booster Seats

An OMG Big Brother & Big Sister Baby Shower Gift 

Just when when we think there are no more products to put a logo on we  are giddy with surprise. These team spirit booster seats make for an OMG big brother & big sister baby shower gift. How perfect is this for a couples shower where so many of the friends invited are college buddies and gal pals of the dad and mom-to-be. Yes, we admit we are jumping the gun because these team spirit booster seats are not meant to replace your car seat. These are the seats your child graduates into once they are at least 40 pounds and 4 years of age. It is the gizmo you keep your child in until he or she is big enough to fit in a seat belt properly. Obviously, only consider this gift if the parents-to-be have the room to store it or if they have an older child who will soon be passing along his or her car seat to the new baby and graduating into a booster seat. Clearly we are true believers that indoctrination into the Trojan Nation, or whatever your favorite college team, works best when started early!

These team spirit booster seats would also make great birthday presents and holiday gifts for children making the transition into the “big kid” booster seat, especially if they are whining that they are old enough and do not need a booster seat. Please, please, do not cave into the whine – according to the CDC (Center for Disease Control & Prevention)

“Booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4–8 years when compared with seat belt use alone!”

Party Hearty!
