NOSTALGIC EBAY FIND: Vintage Plastic 1960s-70s Barrettes Old New Stock!

I was so thrilled to find these on eBay~

My kid’s hair is super fine and none of the newfangled barrette/clips stay in for long.

I have been yearning for the yarn ribbons and plastic barrettes of my childhood- and found these on eBay!

They were new, unused old stock (meaning they were vintage, but never sold).

These things actually STAY IN HER HAIR! I am so happy!

Now if I could only find some yarn ribbons…

I love them!

Maisie’s Newest Silver Baby Bracelets from Claire Lush Designs!

New Silver Cuff Bracelets from Claire Lush Designs!

New Silver Cuff Bracelets from Claire Lush Designs!

 

Got more baby jewelry swag in the mail today from Claire Lush Designs!

In today’s package, she received a V-shaped silver cuff and a heavier silver patterned cuff, plus two thin silver cuffs for a friend’s daughter.

They look ADORABLE on Maisie.  I had to move the Puravida bracelets over to the other hand, which is no mean feat when you have a squirming 10 month old.

My parents were here visiting, so photos were snapped with the kid only in her diaper and jewelry. She’s going through a “MAMAMAMAMAMAMA” phase and doesn’t want anyone but me usually, so it’s a good thing when people visit and she goes to them- gives me a slight break, which I sorely need.  She refused to nap for 2 days and finally went down for one this afternoon.

She only seems to have 2 speeds lately:  “Pick ME UP!” or “DANCE TIME!”

Here is a video of her dancing with my parents in the background:

Baby Bling Review: Claire Lush Designs Custom Silver and Turquoise Baby Cuff Bracelet

I’m a sucker for baby jewelry.  My Filipino mother decked me out with bling from the time I popped out of her womb. I actually have worn the same sterling silver bangle on my arm since I was a year old- it’s been on my wrist for nearly HALF A CENTURY NOW.  It used to have designs on it, but it’s since worn entirely smooth.

Maisie has been wearing baby jewelry since birth as well.  One of my friends brought her a gorgeous hand beaded Native American baby bangle when we were still in the hospital.  She’s never taken any of her jewelry off nor had any choking issues.

What I am reviewing today is a gorgeous custom made sterling silver and turquoise baby cuff bracelet by Claire Lush Designs.  Maisie is actually now repping this brand, we love it so much!  If you go to her Etsy shop you can order a pre-made bracelet for yourself for as little as $20.00- or get a custom one for your baby for just $35.00!  She also carries an array of other jewelry and is quite talented.

I have been layering her silver bangles with other bracelets and it is such a boho, fun summer look!

Baby Bling Must Haves!

  1. The Art of Cure Raw Amber Teething Necklaces:  AMAZING.  The kid wears it, they don’t chew on it- the raw amber melts into the skin and provides an analgesic, natural form of pain relief.  Also great for people with arthritis.  Maisie’s been wearing hers since she was 2 months old and is on her second one- they last about 6 months before they wear out.  No, she’s never strangled herself nor choked on it (knock wood).  http://shop.theartofcure.net/

  2. 14kt Gold Earrings:  I have a sensitivity to anything less than gold in my ears, so I made sure that Maisie only wears real gold (no plate, no gold filled) in hers.  Since having her ears pierced, she’s not had any problems with her ears getting infected.

  3. Claire Lush Designs Custom Silver Baby Cuff Bracelets:  Fits perfectly on tiny wrists and totally hand made- and reasonably priced!  My child’s been wearing bracelets since she was born and it is pretty standard in many countries to put bangles on babies from birth.  $35.00 for a custom bracelet with turquoise. https://www.etsy.com/shop/clairelushdesigns

  4. Puravida Baby Friendship Bracelets:  The perfect boho ‘first bling’ for baby.  Maisie has about 5 or 6 of them on at any given time.  If you post a pic on Instagram, then email them with your account and address, you will get a voucher for a free bracelet.  Reasonably priced at $5-6 dollars each and proceeds go to providing jobs to folks in Costa Rica, where they are made. https://www.puravidabracelets.com/baby-bracelet-collection

  5. Saffron Bells Thai Style Baby Anklets:  I adore these!  In SE Asia, these baubles are given to almost all babies- it is supposed to bring good luck and protection.  They look adorable and are well made.  Maisie loves jingling her feet and making music with them- also helps mothers to know where their kid is and/or if they’re awake. http://www.saffronbells.com/

  6. Lots and Lots of Hair Bows and Stretchy Headbands:  Since Maisie is my first and only girl, my more experienced friends with daughters advised me to put these things in her hair from BIRTH, so that she would get used to them and not try to pull them off.  It works!!  Sometimes she still does remove them, but not often.  I prefer to buy mine from small shops on Etsy and eBay.
