Just some of my favorite things...
So I was thinking (constantly) about this CPSIA thing...and I don't know that people truly grasp the scope of it. Plus dohdoh birds keep reporting wrong info about it...like they did on our local news last night. Never the less, at this moment...if you happen to come across a clothing, toy or anything else designer that makes stuff for kids...and they tell you this does not effect them...they are wrong. Really wrong. So. I decided to share some of my favorite things that I pray will still be around after this nightmare...but I am thinking some of them won't. Like these cute dresses from etsy. I love them. They are made out of recycled material and they are truly one of a kind...and after Feb 10th...she legally cannot sell them anymore unless she gets them tested. Sad. Alright...so you get the idea of what I am saying. It is now or never for some of these things. I just ordered one of these yesterday for valentines day...because I love them...and I somehow don't think these are coated with lead...do you? Or what about these...or these...or these...I LOVE THEM ALLLLLLL! Sniff sniff. And some are doing closeouts...so you can get them at super prices as well...like these... We have a dress from this etsy seller...her sewing is impeccable (how the heck do spell that word???) truly fabulous. She is a professional...and she won't be allowed to sell these one of a kind dresses and shirts anymore! Now sure...life will go on...but for a zillion people...it will never be the same...or nearly as fun and colorful. Sure we can live without these...but why should we have to? Do these really look like a biohazard? Plus...the economic impact this will make...I swear it could be staggering. Think of all the moms at home making stuff like these...and doing a damn good job of it...making it possible that she can stay home with her kids and add to the family income. Now what? No seriously...now what is that mom supposed to do.
Sigh. Ok...I am done. I will quit talking. But don't say I didn't warn ya...these may or may not be gone in a month.
