My Favorite Things III

Just a few things I have been loving lately:
White Nectarine hand cream by Time & Again.
I found this a few weeks ago at Gardner Village while shopping with a girlfriend. It smells like a little slice of summer, and I love how soft it makes my hands. It also comes in scents like Cherry Blossom, Sweet Pea and Blackberry. For the entire line of Time & Again products, please visit their website the Wild Things Are trailer.
Just watching the trailer for the new film Where the Wild Things Are makes me feel like a little kid again. The special effects look awesome, and I am interested to see how they will transform a short (yet beloved) children's book into a feature length film. To see the full trailer go to by Jewel.
Lullaby is a collection of music for children by popular folk songbird Jewel, that will please both babies and grown-ups alike. With classics like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Simple Gifts, and Somewhere Over the Rainbow, as well as re-makes of original Jewel songs like Angel Standing By, and an assortment of new songs (Raven is a personal favorite), Lullaby is sure to sweetly send you to sleep.

Boxes for Katje by Candace Fleming.
I first heard of the book Boxes for Katje on the television program Reading Rainbow. After seeing the show, I went to my local library to read it again. Boxes for Katje is a wonderful story set during post World War II, that will teach your children about sharing, hope, and the power of friendship.

I just used my white nectarine lotion in church on Sunday and I smelled *good* :)

I'm so excited to see the Wild Things. That was one of my favourite books as a child. In fact, so was Boxes for Katji!
