I want to give a quick shout out to PoppieRoxx EarDrops Etsy boutique. I met Shawndra, an awesome jewelry artist at a craft fair in early November. She was our neighboring booth and we did a good exchange at the end of our show. She had these awesome pink skull earrings that will perfectly match my outfit for Logan's "Lil Rebel" themed 1st Birthday Bash. In exchange she picked out some crocheted baby booties for a friend from my Etsy shop, Two Little Sea Stars. PoppieRoxx has offered my readers 20% off any earrings in her Etsy shop, just use coupon code TLSS20, Thanks PoppieRoxx!

Another Etsy shop, Darlin' Details, provided me with item to review. They sent me a 2T blue T-shirt with a polka dot dinosaur decal for Logan to grow into. The shirt is quality 100% cotton, and preshrunk which is great, because as I have unfortunately learned in this first year of motherhood, you can lose a size with the first wash in many brands if you are not careful.
The fabric dino decal appears to be backed and attached in an iron-on style and then given a stitched border as a design element. This is a popular style right now for handmade onesies and toddler tees and I prefer the fabric appliques to some of the plastic iron-on styles I have seen that can crack and fade. I also like that the decal is backed with an adhesive so the edges won't fray around the stitched border. I also really like the modern print selected for this shirt and the blue polka dots color pallet matches perfectly with the base T-shirt color selected. The shape of the dino is childlike and sweet, a contrast to the typical sharp clawed, toothy T-Rex found on other retail options for dinosaur toddler tees. I can appreciate my baby's clothes staying sweet and childlike sometimes (as cool as he does look in that motorcycle emblazoned button-up with a guitar applique across the back), I'm not ready for him to grow up so fast!
Darlin Details does more than just kids clothes, they also do monogramming, bags and totes, jerseys, and sports/college collections in infant through adult sizes. A really cute idea is Darlin' Details' "house divided" tees with two sports teams. In our house that would be Dallas Cowboys for my husband and Denver Broncos for my side. My dad would love to see Logan sport that shirt for our next football party.You can get free shipping by using the code SEC2011 at Darlin' Details!
