Are you Promom?

One thing we all have in common is that we are either Mom's already or we will be Mom's very soon. Promom Couture is fun, fresh, and unique and helps us celebrate motherhood! Started by three women who shared a pride in being “Mom” that many women feel – but that all too often isn’t recognized by others. They knew something needed to be done– so Promomhood became their rallying cry.

Promom Couture has a line of thermals, tees & tanks that you MUST check out. Two of my favorites are "balanced mom" & "happy mom" Their unique designs capture the essense of being a mom and make great gifts for your own mom, sister, friend or YOURSELF!

The “promoms” are expanding the line to include: hats, totes, sleepwear, stationary and children’s wear. All with the eye-catching and unique style of promom couture!

Lucky TBC readers will receive a FREE gift with purchase when you buy a tee or thermal on or by November 18, 2005. Place your order through the website then send a separate email to and give your name, what you ordered and that you are a TBC reader and you will receive your FREE gift! How cool is that!

Retro Dish Set

Give your child something fun to look at while eating their veggies or drinking their milk. These kids dish set, designed by Jackie Shapiro, who gave these sets a nostalgic 60’s feel to it. There is also the use of vibrant color palettes and adorable designs.

Each five piece set includes an 8” plate, spoon, fork, bowl, and cup. All pieces are dishwasher safe and the colors will not fade, discolor or chip. What also makes this dish set child-friendly is that the pieces are made out of a shatter-proof material. I know how important that factor is when buying feeding gear for my child. The dish set comes in four different designs, circles, monkey, cat, and rings.

These kids dish sets can be found at Sparkability.
