Hair clips with a touch of nostalgia by ZoseDesigns

ZoseDesigns 3 Hair clips with a touch of nostalgia by ZoseDesigns

If you have a little girl, you know there is no such thing as too many hair clips. Out of all the things that exist in excess in my house, hair clips take up the least room and get used the most.

Unfortunately they also get lost, a lot, so I try to pick them up whenever I see some cute ones around. These ZoseDesigns harclips are really sweet, they remind me of the clips I used to wear when I was a little girl.

All the cute is covered – cupcakes, ladybugs, crochet and fabric buttons – need I say more? All clips are designed and handmade in Australia, prices start at $4 and shipping is only $1.60, yup $1.60, from the ZoseDesigns Etsy store.

They say fashion has a thirty year cycle. It works for me as I’m about thirty years older than my kids and I’m loving recreating my childhood through them. Now if you will excuse me, I’m off to play with the Cabbage Patch Kid my little lady got for Christmas.

Christmas stocking. For a special touch to your fireplace mantle, who can resist these hand-sewn stockings? From Bebe Sniklefritz on Etsy ($26 + 10.50 USD for name/monogram). We bought one for our daughter two years ago, and can’t wait to bring it out this year. The fabric is so soft and fluffy, and the embroidery work is excellent. From the popularity of the shop, we think others agree as well.

Finger puppets. Keep your little one entertained with these adorable finger puppets from MiChiMaLLC. Although the puppets are recommended for children 4 years and over, our daughter has been entertained by them from age 0.

I spy bags are the perfect toys to keep your toddler and preschooler busy when traveling. In the car or on the plane, these are lightweight, will fit in your carry-on or stuff it behind the front seat. Each time our little one picks this up, there are always some new things to find and new surprises. We have bought several as gifts over and over.  Below: (top photo) Cupcakes, I Spy Bag Travel Toy by Aebaby, $20 USD, (bottom photo) Train hide and seek I Spy bag by Giggle Junction, $15 USD.

Baby blocks. These are so much better than baby blocks sold at retails shops these days, where you have no idea how the wood was processed or about the paints and sealants used. These blocks have lasted us three years and have survived many a tower and even a tantrum or two. They are non-toxic and chemical-free. By Tiny Giraffe Shop, $26 USD.

Jewelry for little and older girls. We love the necklaces with resin charms by Baby Loves Pink. We bought this Koala necklace for $15 USD. They have charms and pendants in everything cute that you can think of. Perfect gift for little girls!

Dreamy pillows. From Fong Studio. These came in a set of two for $21.50 USD. They decorate my daughter’s bed and armchair, and have also served well as headrests in her car seat. I liked these so much I started sewing my own!

These come in so many varieties, and you can personalize yours by selecting hair color and style, eye color, skin tone, and name. $25 USD by Dennis Hockerman.

Our cupcake hair clips are hand crocheted and backed with felt to keep the cupcake from bending. The cherry button clip is a handmade fabric covered button on a cute polka-dotted ribbon clip. The bottom right hair clip is a three-layered hand crocheted flower with a sparkly resin/rhinestone flower in the center.
