It’s a bird, it’s a plane… well sort of- it’s a postcard that can be transformed into a wooden airplane. I know plenty of people (adults and kids alike) who wouldn’t mind opening up the mailbox and finding this aviation treasure!

Bag, Barrow, or Steal

I stopped by Patisserie Claude (near Barrow St.)┬álast week to pick up some croissants for a co-worker’s birthday. If you have never been, you should definitely stop by because they quite possibly might be the best croissants I have ever tasted! Anyway, the West Village holds a certain charm that always makes me smile- the brick brownstones are simply to die for! So, when I came across these multi colored baby bag totes on Kate Spade’s website tonight, and saw they were conveniently named The Barrow Street Anabel Baby Bag, I knew I was not alone in my love for the West side!

These bow-rific totes are made of nylon, and have water proof linings, a ton of pockets- bottle holders, and a changing pad, $345 each

Writing Skills

I came across these themed writing kits from Meri Meri the other day at Kate’s Paperie ($23 each). I love how they are stocked full with writing paper, cards, and envelopes. They make such complete little sets for children to write family members, or pen pals who may not be near.

Summer Anchors

Now that Summer is officially in full swing, make you you stop by Blanket Anchors and pick up a set of their sand bag satchels. Each set, which contains four anchors bags ($10 set), is sure to be a beach necessity this summer!

Simply fill each anchor bag with sand from the beach, and place one on each corner of your towel or blanket- and voila! no more unfortunate incidences of your belongings blowing away in the wind.
