Baby Shower Giveaway #1: Me and Reekie

Every time I do one of these showers, or host a big giveaway - there are always a few people I secretly hope will join in on our fun. For starters (and perfect for the #1 giveaway)... is Me & Reekie. We are a huge supporter of her in the Zrust household. Maria, the talent behind Me & Reekie is amazing. She is one of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with... so giving, so passionate about what she does, and most of all she is beyond awesome at her craft.

Me & Reekie is a shop full of adorableness... When you first find your way over to her store, you will see cute skull & crossbone onesies and tank tops for the kiddos... knitted slippers for mom... newborn hats... but my favorite, FAVORITE items in her shop are her Boot-ys... They come in all different colors... fabrics from canvas to chenille... hand sewn prints like lady bug dots to skull appliques. In our house, I believe we have 4 different pairs of the skull ones. A gray pair... a black and white pair... and 2 sizes of the black and pink ones. You could say I highly recommend them ;) One the newest changes I have seen in her shop is that she now offers three different boot heights. A "summer slip on" style, a 
mid-rise, a tall knee high boot. And of course, all are equally adorable. My favorite thing about these boot-ys is that of all the shoes I have for my kids, as babies, these are a great fit and they actually stay on their feet! It seems like even the size 1 crib shoes for baby Rozzlyn get kicked off in a matter of minutes. Not only are they super cute... but they're functional AND cozy. "Booties have grey cotton denim on the outside, fuzzy fleece on the inside, next to the babies skin. Elastic in the back, around the ankle and a snap closure. Bottom is made of ultrasuede. All seams are enclosed in grey bias tape to ensure the utmost comfort of your babies tootsies!" I highly recommend that pick up a pair... or 3... and maybe a pair for yourself too ;) Now enough rambling... on to the fun stuff!! Maria has so sweetly given Ashley these adorable gray Boot-ys... perfect for her little man arriving soon.
And of course, since this is a giveaway, one lucky winner will get a pair too! The winner of this giveaway gets their choice of boot-ys... in any size ranging from newborn - 3 years... so good luck! Anyone would be lucky to receive these cute, snuggly shoes.

Wordless Wednesday: Quilts!

So - new house means new decor... and its beyond time for the boys' room to get a face lift... So naturally, mommy got down and dirty and made not one, but two twin size quilts... two of the prints are Japanese fabric... two are designer cottons... all top of the line materials of course... lined with a 80% cotton/20% poly batting... and super snuggle minky dot on the back... Its so warm and cozy (i slept with it last night, lol) It will be great to keep them warm this winter....  Izzaqs is backed with red minky dot... Zavery's will be backed with either a baby blue, or a tiffany blue... depending on which one matches best when it comes in. What do ya think!?

This weeks Giveaway: Kaboogie!

I can't even begin to tell you how long I have been wanting & waiting to do this review... I have been pestering asking her FOREVER to do a giveaway... her stuff is SO cute... and so well made... and the best part? Totally eco-friendly...

Kaboogie uses up-cycled, re-purposed leather... to turn them into complete awesome-ness...
"I started KaBoogie Shoes as a way to make adorable shoes for my baby that weren't garish, or cartoony. Using repurposed suede and leather, I choose only those pieces that are gently used or new condition. Simple, soft and kinda groovy is how I like to dress my kids! No characters, soft leather and suede. "
Just what I like... I hate cheesy character stuff... The kids have a COUPLE pairs of character pj's... other than that were pretty much a closet full of skulls, guitars, pirates......and barley & birch... lol And for shoes? A couple handmade pairs of slip ons... Converse... and NOW our very own pair of Kaboogie's... for the hopefully future #3...
Baby Shoes Moccasins 6 to 12 Month
And let me tell you, i was totally blown away. Just from photos, I have been in love with her shop forever now... but seeing them in person was beyond my expectations.
