What is catching my eye.


I had a few people ask me where I got the striped dresses for my girls that they wore on Memorial Day. thanks to my super stylish sister in law, Debbie, I found out about a company called Olive Juice. It is incredible. Their customer service is wonderful - they searched and searched for all three outfits for my girls. They are up to a size 12 - so if you want to keep those little girls young these modest, stylish clothes are the way to go. Do yourself a favor and sign up for a catalog, you won't regret it.
request a catalog.
they have great shoes too!


I must also give a shout out about a new cottage company creation. The Pixie Patch. They are the snuggly "soupies" as we call them in our house, with little ribbons for playing, touching and attaching treasures, such as binkies, or their favorite toys, your car keys, photos and they are small enough for the kids always have with them all the time. (yes I am all for an adult version)
if you love soft, ribbon, wonderful colors, quality hand sewn items, but want to have someone else make it, they will ship directly to any baby shower!!
This brown and blue one is so eye pleasing.

they have other baby items that make great gifts so don't miss it!

love the blue and brown combo. I have a baby shower in 2 weeks to go to and you've just solved my what to buy dilema - you always have great ideas

Their products have been a HIT at every baby shower I've gone to for the past year or so! Those blankies are the softest material...I want one for me! And the interchangable flower headbands are genius!

That is so funny that you mentioned Pixie Patch...I've had my eye on them too. I love their products. I just ordered some things from them this weekend. I'm putting together a girl baby shower gift for this Saturday. So fun! I'll have to post the completed project when it is all done...

Those striped dresses were so, so cute.

I love the snugglies as well. Good ideas all around.

Savannah needs one of those blankets. She would go crazy with all the ribbon(we call them 'taggies'). Your girls always look so cute.

Thanks for the shout out! So fun of you to do that! - Just mailed a few pixie petals out for a shower! FUN!
The Olive Juice items are darling! Too bad my littles can't wear such items! :-)

I love Olive Juice. They have trunk shows here in Dallas all the time. If I was wealthy it would be all that E would wear!

Bridget said...

What great sites! Thanks for sharing.

Once your girls hit the 7-14 size range, I have found it's really hard to find little girl clothes for them (but well worth the effort). Everything is so mini-teenager, which drives me batty. So, thanks for the olive juice tip! Cute name.

Love the Pixie Patch stuff. PQ wears their clippies and headbands, and they are so cute and great quality.

Victoria said...

Those are adorable! Thanks for the links! :)

Kristi, everything you post about is such a temptation. I have to keep reminding myself that I don't have the money or the family to buy/make so many cute things for!

Ok, that sounded reeeeally pathetic...:)

I love the Pixie Patch and visit the site often, contemplating and assesing whether Kate needs a blanket like that or not. I'm sure it won't be much longer before I take the plunge and order one! They are so cute and she just loves her soft and silky blankie!
Thanks for yet another site idea with the Olive Juice!
Also, I really appreciate your thoughts for our upcoming Baptism. I really loved that shot you had of your sweet little girl standing at the font, with her reflection in the water!

Olive Juice was fun e-window shopping for me to check out today. Now I'm going to look for the books on their site on Amazon's new and used.

Way cute! Chloe is 'teenage' now! I don't think we'll ever share clothes though, she will be way shorter than me. But that site IS adorable & the books (under gifts) I HAD FEATURED on a previous post awhile back - We have how to speak politely & why....it was a gift -never heard of these before -but they work -they taught me a thing or two!!haha
(James -8- now corrects us all on our improper grammer!!)

LOVE LOVE the pixie patch! Thanks for the shout out -I'm a HUGE fan:)
I give these baby items as gifts -shower or not -they are a HIT!! & so cute, I can't stand it! Janae

Just checked out both websites. Great ideas as usual.

Shauna said...

I am a huge fan of Olive Juice! Love the Pixie Patch idea. I have a lot of baby showers to plan and/or attend this summer!

Maxman said...

Oh my! That brown dress and that last blue/brown minkie blanket are killing me!!

michelle said...

oops! That last comment was really me. :)

Just received the blue/brown 'lovie' from Pixie Patch for my 5 month old. He loves it...and so do I. I can always count on your blog for great finds!
