Featured Etsy Shop: Peapods Cookies

If you’ve signed up for our Vintage Sesame Street Giveaway you’ll recognize these cookies from Peapods Cookies:

Elmo Birthday Cookies from Peapods Cookies

Kristie is a super talented cookie aficionado from New York.  She makes some of the cutest cookies we’ve seen on Etsy (her icing technique is to die for- she’s such an artist!).  Speaking of New York, Kristie made some fabulous “Big Apple” themed cookies that would be perfect for a New York wedding or birthday party:

I think the little hotdogs are so cute!

We’ve been thinking about how cute an Alice and Wonderland  birthday party would be over here at tumblewee and I think these little teacup cookies would be perfect (the “eat me” and “drink me” – so cute!):

Bright Colors Tea Party from Peapods Cookies

And if you’re having a business event (or some really neat themed social media party), check out these cookies:

I could almost die over these Social Media Cookies - so clever!

Makes me want to design a social media party just for the heck of it . . . and to eat these cookies.

Make sure to check out her other cute designs at her etsy shop Peapods Cookies and maybe buy a couple goodies for your next big event.  Jax tells us that the cookies are not only good looking but good tastings as well (OK so he can’t really talk so he didn’t tell us per se but he did gobble up and elmo for his birthday)!

  • A bib made from vintage Sesame Street fabric from Bibu (Andrea makes all of her bibs from vintage fabric, a girl after our own hearts)
  • Grey legwarmers from our shop Tumblewee
  • And a cute little Elmo’s World lunch box to package it all up in!

Wednesday Wants: Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice

As Valentines day is only a couple of weeks away, I assumed everyone would be wanting some shopping ideas for their littles.  So I made a treasury list on etsy with my favorites flagged for girls this week (next week boys!).  Dee’s definitely getting into the frilly girly phase (she wants to try on mom’s shoes, put on makeup with me, and loves wrapping herself in beautiful scarves) so I think the tutu may be in order for her this valentines day (especially since I secretly hope she becomes a ballerina when she’s older!).

I don’t know about you guys but if I had a little baby girl to buy for my first pick would be the Daddy’s Sweet Heart Onesie!  So freaking cute – maybe add the Red Ruffled Diaper cover and have her walk around with the heart plush cats – photo ops would come a-running.

Retro Love Heart Cats from Janefoster

And I just adore ruffled petticoats (even though I couldn’t really bring myself to put Dee in THAT many ruffles when she was a baby) I may have to buy one of these petticoats to let her be absolutely ruffle-extreme in the house.  More her style though, the tutu, paired with the leg warmers, topped with one of the three candy necklaces I tossed on here, or all three, why not?! (possibly a little over kill I’ll admit).  Ummmm. ADORABLE!

Valentine Tutu from LittleTutuShop

Pink and Gray Leg Warmers from tumblewee

Call Me Candy Necklace from sweetLindseys

Candy Necklace from KanDiWorld

I Want Candy Necklace from cuddlebugeeshi's

Of course, if you think the above outfit options have just a little TOO many ruffles or TOO much tulle then go with something a little more retro and down to earth (well as much as I’m capable of anyway) like the Valentines Day Skirt from ISADORA KIDS paired with cute felt Hugs & Kisses hair clips from details shop.

So we got Everything Nice covered but what about Sugar & Spice?  How about a Toy Cookie Set and apron to make cookies with mom?  Or not the cookie making type? Buy the macorons or valentines day cookie assortment to hand out instead.

Ruffle Trimmed Kids Apron from mygrayshed

Valentine Macaron from themacaronqueen

Valentines Day Cookie Assortment from TheFancyLadyGourmet

But above all – just give lots of kisses to your little girl for us!
