Imagine a world where toys are manufactured in an eco-friendly way and they’re 100% recyclable, too. Imagine a company boosting their community with jobs for those with special needs. Imagine feeding your little one’s imagination with paintable boxes shaped like castles, barns and more. Creators Kim and Russ Cash imagined it all – and made it a reality.

I initially thought these boxes were sort of a lame thing until a mom told me that her children loved decorating their own little building! I say, bring on the imagination and can the video games! $17.49 to $23.99.


While the majority of toys have changed drastically since our parents’ generation, there are a few traditional options that remain high on every kid’s wish list. And the rocking horse is one of those true classics. What has changed significantly is the design—no more of those rigid, wooden mid-century models. In fact, Robo Horse has so revolutionized the rocking horse design that in their able hands, the toy no longer simply sways to and ‘fro, or springs up and down; it actually gallops! The Robo Horse “animals”—options range from the familiar (an elegant black stallion or white pony) to the imaginative (a dinosaur or a unicorn)—uses a patented system to perfectly mimic the sensation of actual riding. And with a soft, super-plush design and built-in saddles and handles, this is definitely the most comfortable horseback ride your little ones will ever experience. Prices start at $135.

And last, but certainly not least, the e-tailer with everything! has a huge selection of holiday toys! Find the perfect gifts for kids by age, gender, category, and price. Save on top toys, games, electronics, video games, and more in the 2010 Holiday Toy List!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

The Thanksgiving Feast

When 30 guests descend upon you for Thanksgiving dinner, you’ll be happy you stocked up on this comprehensive selection of top-flight kitchen appliances. Cook those appetizers and sides in a Sharp SuperSteam microwave oven, whip up your stuffing with KitchenAid’s iconic 5-quart stand mixer, and then warm up the rolls in a DeLonghi convection toaster. And that’s just a start: Also on offer are slicers, fryers, blenders, grills, and plenty more. I wish I could convince my husband to get this electric turkey fryer ($90)! That way, I wouldn’t be having a heart attack when he fires up the flame! Some wonderful kitchen appliances featured in this sale at Gilt.

My husband loves nuts around the holidays and it seems that many of my holiday dishes call for nuts. We have this really old nutcracker that works a lot like the Drosselmeyer Nutcracker featured in today’s Gilt sale. But I think this one is so much cooler because it doesn’t take up as much space. It’s the first handheld nutcracker to have a double lever action and a container to collect the shells (mine doesn’t have that). It easily accommodates nuts of any size and is easily detachable for simple cleaning and maintenance. It’s $29.

While you’re getting the meal ready, the rest of the family can kick back and relax. And you’ll be confident that you’re entertaining in style with these key pieces for your living space. Set the scene with the Shansi dining table, a walnut beauty whose length can be extended with two included leaves, and add oval-back stools for extra seating. Have the Marilyn pendant shed some light on your activities and pick up a Brutal lamp for the end table. Finally, accessorize with a metal-framed mirror and then finish with some Etruscan candle holders. They come in two sizes and are priced at $30 and $44 at Gilt–my pick!

Do you enjoy setting a pretty table as much as I do? Then Johnson Brothers serving ware is a must for your table. Founded in 1883, the company is named for the four founders—brothers Alfred, Frederick, Henry, and Robert Johnson. They specialized in a durable earthenware called “White Granite,” and its success led to rapid expansion. Today, they remain a leader in the tableware business. Choose from complete place settings and serving pieces in old world patterns with a Dickensian charm. Friendly Village shows bucolic scenes of bridges, barns, and town squares surrounded by garlands of leaves. This pattern can take you from Thanksgiving to Christmas. His Majesty celebrates the turkey in original etchings wreathed in fall’s bounty. And Old British Castles Christmas, in pink or green, features an architectural, floral border around a candlelit, majestic tree. ideeli prices for this event start at just $6! I’ve given some of the Christmas pieces as presents before and I didn’t get them at his price, even at T.J. Maxx!

The meal’s over and it’s time to settle in front of the television for the big game. Get this 48” Flat Panel TV Stand today at for just $177! Great buy!

What Makes A House A Home?

The answer, of course, is a homeowner who adds his/her personal touches and knows how to decorate to reflect their personality. I love walking into someone’s home and seeing bits of pieces of them scattered about. It can be in a work of art, a piece of furniture or even the way they set a table.

Maybe some of today’s finds in the sample sales will strike your fancy and give you some ideas for making your home a reflection of you.


Okay, this is probably a bad item to start this post . . . But then again, it could be interesting if the homeowner is paying the mortgage payments with alimony and has a huge axe to grind with her ex.

Looking to add some rich, rustic flavors to your cocktail party—or Sunday afternoon snack? Look to the Creminelli family—for 400 years, they’ve been curing meat in Italy’s Piedmont region, using only prime cuts from animals raised on small family farms. One bite of their wild-boar salami and you’ll taste what a difference a few centuries of artisanal practice makes. If you adore pepperoni, dig in to the sopressata, with its robust, garlicky taste, while mushroom connoisseurs will love the salami tartufo, which features all-natural pork speckled with delicate Black Summer truffles.

I’m fortunate to have adventurous foodies in my family! One of the staples in the stockings for the men in my family is gourmet jerky. It’s one of the things I always include in my son’s care packages (he’s in Afghanistan). But I ordered the set that contains Wild Boar salami, Piccante salami, and Casalingo salami. I thought this might be a nice change, and it’s fun to see them all experience new things! $24 for all three!

The art is in the mix: start with one of Beauville Designs’ luxurious tablecloths in a tonal floral print, and over that, set down placemats, like Kim Seybert’s round ones with intricate beading detail. Rethink the little details: instead of folding napkins, put them in Dransfield & Ross’s whimsical cracked-glass napkin rings. And why not stock up on enough serving pieces to take you well past fall. Prices start at $12.

Designed in Sweden, Sagaform’s kitchenware, tableware and serving pieces exemplify the streamlined looks and built-in practicality you’ve come to expect with Swedish design: A small bowl, for instance, made from ecologically-grown bamboo, comes with a notched spoon that attaches right to the bowl’s top edge. Sagaform also has no fear of color, with bright-hued splashes, both solid and patterned, adorning its dishes, glassware and more. I love this mini grill for only $18. It comes in a great carrying case that can also be used as a cooler! Pretty neat, huh?

The Magnolia Company’s wreaths are way more than a circular bunch of flowers: they’re art pieces in their own right.

Or seize the spirit of the Thanksgiving season with a wreath accented with turkey and pheasant feathers.

To succeed in their craft, artists must continually mine their sources for fresh ideas, new media, and innovative concepts. Dress designers are no different, yet they take their spirited cues from the way a fabric happens to skim the body or a burst of color that excites even the most trained eye.

Color block, ruching, and animal print details lend an of-the-moment sharpness to tried-and-true pieces such as sheaths and babydolls. Prices start at just $49 for these great looking dresses!
