Not So Common Giveaway!

Baby K and I are so excited to introduce to you a new Etsy shop from a fellow Pikevillian, Rachel, who is the main stitch to her shop... The Common Thread.

After perusing through her Etsy store here, I was in adorableness overload looking through her sewing work of cute fabrics and one of a kind girly items.

I already showed you the above fabric swatches at Dave and Brit Plus One, but what you didn't see was this....

um, hello patchwork tote....

OR this....
...a cute, quirky, girly, retro, vintage fabric makes your standard wallet NOT so common.

or this.... my personal favorite.

This particular something is a reusable snack bag!!! How adorable and how eco-friendly all in one! Forget those common plastic snack bags you send along with your little bopper to preschool/school/daycare! How cute are these? Oh! And a ton more fun than the plastic stuff... plus you are helping the environment. I love them.

I also love a TON of other items located in The Common Thread Etsy shop here.

Punky Little Princess

O.M.G. I mean glitzy Chuck Taylor's for little ones? I die.

I bet even Chuck Norris would like to do a roundhouse kick in a pair of these!

I had been WAITING for the day that Baby K would grow into these adorable shoes custom designed by Kelly. They were a gift when K was in utero and now the days of becoming a Punky Little Princess have arrived... sigh.

Okay, so these would make an AWESOME gift for someone expecting or who has a little princess OR if you have a little one then you must go HERE for Punky Little Princess' contact info and more. They come in a variety of different sizes and colors but no doubt about it... all are very punky. =)
