My best friend will soon be moving out of her house that she’s been in for 18 years. She’s so excited about decorating a new home, but there are still moments of sadness. This was the house where she raised her kids and made so many memories. I couldn’t help notice, during a recent visit, the height chart on the edge of the kitchen pantry door. Carefully marked measured and dated in markers and ink… It’s too bad that they can’t somehow take that door with them…
That’s why I love this customizable height chart. As your kids grow, you can move it around and always take it with you. I would use a marker to put dates and their names on special occasions to mark their height. What a wonderful keepsake!
Ever think you’d see Neiman Marcus and Target collaborating? Well, it’s about to happen just in time for the holidays!
These two power retailers have recruited 24 designers to create limited-edition gift items. Is anyone having flashbacks of the Missoni release? I’m hoping that Target has made a few adjustments for this event! Some of the designers will step out of the product category comfort zone and others are staying with what they know best. Most items will be priced under $60 with the prices ranging from $7.99 to $499.99. Neimans stayed very close to the design process which resulted in products made with real leather and silk, hand beading, hand-blown glass and 18K gold! Watch for ad campaigns to begin in the fall.
The collection drops into Neiman Marcus stores, Target stores, NeimanMarcus.com and Target.com on December 1st, so mark your calendars! The two companies are jointly making a $1 million donation to the Council of Fashion Designers of America to celebrate the partnership and affirm their continual support the American design community.
The following designers have contributed to this collection:
It’s been a slim week in blog-ville for me, friends, as it’s been one of those weeks where life threw some unexpected events my way…But I did manage to capture a few interesting bits that you might find interesting…
make at least one Target run during the week, but I dodge the toy section where I’m assuming these cool crafts live…
Long story, but I once was in the home that Tod grew up in and know why he was inspired to create these amazing craft kits for children. He grew up in a home where creativity was encouraged and played a significant part of his younger years. There were still remnants of creations that all of the Oldham children had created hanging in the home of his parents before they moved from Texas.
Making crafts inside is a great way to beat the heat this summer and get your kid’s creative juices flowing! I would like some of these for myself!
