The Pink & Green Pottery Barn Kitchen

The Princess realizes some of you suspect I post these items merely to have a place to direct my mother, as in, “If you don’t believe me, just go to the blog and see for yourself.” In this case however, if TSU (The Spousal Unit) had not forwarded the photos, yours truly would have gone to her grave denying a pink pint-sized kitchen existed. Let alone a pink and green creation of the same genre. We share for your benefit, the Pottery Barn Kids Pink and Green Classic Kitchen. If this is not happening with the color scheme inside the playroom, there are always additional options, the red ensemble, not to mention the white pie safe:

Of course, the piece you probably should consider most seriously, if only in the interest of improving domestic relations? (No, we mean relations within the household. Your domestic household.) Perhaps this can convince them, just for a nanosecond, that you care about their efforts and want little Muffy to learn from firsthand experience just how hard they work. The Pottery Barn Kids Ironing Board.

Naturally, if you have come to the conclusion that secretly I am lusting after all of the little kitchens and wondering where they were when I was a tot, you are absolutely correct. Do you think it would be bad if… oh, never mind. We don’t have room anyway. Harrumph. BTW, almost all of the pieces are on sale and some are selling out fast. (Do you think perhaps TSU… oh, never mind.) Lest we be accused of having absolutely no sense of humor whatsoever, peek at the Pastel Pacifica Backpacks, seen above to the right of the Ironing Board. How cute are these?

Pottery Barn Kids, Elaine Turner update

In today’s Preppy Bytes we think the first item below represents a great business marriage (for lack of a better term) between the marketing mavens at Pottery Barn Kids and the brilliant women who own Hable Construction. Word that Pottery Barn will be using Hable’s absolutely wonderful fabric on some of its new Pottery Barn Kids custom nursery furniture, like the Lullaby Swivel Glider and Ottoman. Hable has long been a favorite for those shopping the Garnet Hill catalog The textiles from Hable are out of this world, and the two sisters who own the company are very savvy business strategists.

Hable is just uber-creative, and when popping over to peek at their site, we found the adorable Round wool felt box in Pink Lollipop, as well as their wonderful Jade Fig Canvas Sunhat or gardening hat. The colors at Hable are bright and cheery, the designs are to-die-for and the accessory line offers wonderful choices as well.

Byte #2: Also bright and cheery while retaining its timeless elegance is the Elaine Turner Sconset Terah Large’ Tote bag at Nordstrom we showcased in a post yesterday. Apparently Nordstrom is out of stock on this item. However, a savvy reader (you know who you are!) has alerted us to the availability of another Elaine Turner bag in that same Poppy print! Not only does it appear to be available, but for anyone thinking about economizing on handbags it is offered at a great price. The good folks at have the Turner Beach Tote in all its bright and roomy wonder, ideal for almost any occasion! In addition they have loads of other Turner handbags, including the Danielle Tiki Floral seen below along with the Danielle Sea Blue Grasscloth large tote, a lush and lovely look that will be stunning on anyone’s arm. This is not to mention all of the other designer bags they carry, the perfumes, — definitely worth a stop as soon as you have a nanosecond! And thank you faithful reader!
