I have always been a big Etsy fan, but not necessarily an avid shopper. That is, until the moment I found out I was pregnant with Isla. Etsy is the mecca for adorable baby products – bows, leggings, blankets, teethers, birth announcements, baby shower decor, mobiles, etc. I’ve scoured the site over the last year and have ordered a number of baby products – some of which I love to pieces and want to share with you. And what’s even better is that my favorite seven shop owners (Les Petits Darlings, By George Baby Boutique, Nomad Floral Designs, Smiling Tree Toys, Baby Grace Houston, Max & Me, and Happiness Lives Here) have agreed to give away some of their amazing products to one lucky winner of the giveaway below (over a $200 value!). The giveaway ends at midnight on Sunday, January 18. Good luck!
Colorful Leggings & Shirts from Les Petits Darlings
I first came across Les Petits Darlings (Etsy + website) on my favorite Instagram account – @kristygirl of The Benzer Bunch. Her daughter, Livi (Seriously? Could she be any cuter?) has lots of leggings from Les Petits Darlings, and I love them all. I decided to get Isla the cotton candy ones, because I am obsessed with how bright and whimsical they are. I can’t wait to order another pair – and I know I need the crowd pleaser t-shirt for Valentine’s Day. It is insanely cute.
I have to warn you – browsing this site is slightly dangerous, because if you’re like me, you’re going to want everything you see.
Sharon, the owner of Les Petits Darlings, is kindly giving away one of the brand new Valentine’s Day t-shirts to the giveaway winner!
Teething Rings from By George Baby Boutique
Sarah, the owner of By George Baby Boutique, is just the sweetest. I absolutely love her adorable assortment of modern quilts, crib sheets, Boppy covers and our favorite item – the teething rings. Isla still has no teeth popping through, but she is a teething machine. Isla loves to suck on the cute fabric (we went with the scribbled triangles print), as well as chew constantly on the ring. It’s a good size, so she gets a strong grip on the ring and we carry it all over the place with us. Priced at $10, this is definitely a must-have item for any baby (hint: buy a ton and give them as gifts!).

Dakota Floral Crown from Nomad Floral Designs
If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m slightly addicted to floral crowns. Isla wore one in her newborn photos and in our Christmas photos, and I felt I needed to continue the tradition for her Christening. With all of the chaos that surrounded that day, getting a photo with her wearing the crown didn’t quite work – however, I managed to sneak in some photos with her wearing her new Dakota baby crown by Nomad Floral Designs (a fellow Houstonian!) last weekend. I love how dainty it looks!

Personalized State Teether from Smiling Tree Toys
I don’t remember how exactly I stumbled upon this personalized Texas-state teether from Smiling Tree Toys (Etsy and website), but I knew immediately we needed one for Isla when I saw it. It was supposed to be a stocking stuffer, but let’s get real – I was not about to wait to give it to her when she doesn’t even know what a stocking is! Isla will chew on this Texas teether all of the time – and I love that it’s personalized (and has different options!).
Isla is not the only Petrovic family member that is obsessed with the teether. Belle, our four year old dog, has never, ever chewed anything in the house… until the teether came into the picture. Fast forward two months, and I just ordered our third one – two have been eaten by Belle! We definitely have learned our lesson and will keep this one high off the ground when Isla isn’t chomping on it.

Monogrammed Clothes and Blankets from Baby Grace Houston
Baby Grace Houston is actually owned by a friend of mine – Julie, who is currently due with baby #2 (a brother for their two year old, Evelyn). Julie is one of those moms who does it all (and looks amazing while doing so). In addition to running a very successful monogramming company, Julie stays fit (see this Modern Luxury Magazine article about her) and is a consultant for Rodan + Fields.
I was lucky enough to be given a number of cute monogrammed gifts from Baby Grace Houston when Isla was born – hats, bloomers, and a blanket. Julie’s selection of baby clothes and accessories is all perfect – but nothing can beat this swimsuit and this beautiful simple dress. Baby Grace Houston has equally cute boy items – like this newborn hat and these cute swim trunks. If you need anything monogrammed, definitely contact Julie.
Julie is giving the winner a cute ‘bubble’ onesie (gender and size appropriate).
Pom Pom Mobile from Max & Me
I discovered Max & Me through one of my best friends, Kirby, whose daughter was born a month after Isla. We were decorating nurseries at the same time, and thought that it would be sweet to have one piece in both our girl’s rooms, as they live in different states. When she sent me a link to this mobile at Max & Me, I was sold immediately.
When the mobile arrived (from Australia!), I was so pleased. The chiffon petals are so light and ethereal. Sasha, being a worried dad, didn’t want to hang anything over the crib, so we opted to put the mobile over the rocker. I am glad we hung it there, as Isla often stares up at it while feeding.
Tamsyn, the owner of Max & Me, is so wonderful and talented. She recently featured Isla’s nursery on her blog (which I love!). Her little boys are seriously the cutest. If you need a mobile or a pretty pillow, you should definitely be buying one from Max & Me.

I came across Happiness Lives Here on Whitney Fox’s Instagram account (@_whitneyfox – another must follow!), and I’m addicted. I love these adorable little bows so much. They are the perfect bow shape – and they stay that way. The grip on the clasp is strong, which means they don’t fall out (although Isla seems to have realized the other day she is fully in control of bow-wearing). Jackie, the owner of Happiness Lives Here, has created a bow heaven. There are so many colors and fabric choices in the store, and I want them all. All baby girls need Happiness Lives Here bows.
