What a great site! I love the "Birdies Say, A Print by Brandon Reese"- too cute. And the piggy banks on jr. society are just adorable. Thanks for all the great contests mod mom!
That colouring is pretty awesome. I would probably keep it for myself.
I love the Jen Corace prints and the adorable suitcases to package everything up in! And I love the Junior Society in it's entirety. Its a great resource for all sorts of wonderful things. Quite the inspiration!
I love the Congratulations Garland, Candy Colors on Mahar and I love the piggy banks on Jr. Society.
i love mahar dry goods! the "monster cranky pants" are amazing. so cute! and pretty much everything on junior society rocks. how cute are those spoon and fork sets?
The S.Britt coloring book (the coooooolest!), all the books + the crocheted bunnies. Those angry kid pictures are funny on junor Society today! I'm so excited about the secret prize!
i love the monster cranky pants at Mahar and the Ubi changing table form Junior Society.
Oh man, my favorites button is getting over stuffed with websites from modmom. I LOVE IT! At Mahar drygoods i would deffinatly go with the monster cranky pants. How completly fitting for my children. Another direct hit are the SATees on junior society. I'm loving loquacious!
Ooh, super secret prize!!! Sign me up. Mahar Drygoods? Even better. The Monster Cranky Pants are a longtime fave. My Junior Society top pick is the fold-down bunk bed from Flying Beds. How unbelievably cool...
I have been ordering Meg Rooks' decoupaged pails for the past year as shower gifts, birthday gifts, whatever. They are perfect and as soon as I saw you were doing a giveaway for Mahar, I knew exactly what I would pick. Love Meg!!!
I love the kids kitchen set at Mahar and the Ubi changing table from Junior Society.
Mahar Dry Goods: Lilly Bean Play Food, Tea Service! Cucumber sandwiches, even!
Ok, this was actually hard for me to choose. Both have some great products.
Junior Society:JEames® Hang-It-All™
oh surprises....I love surprises along with those soapcicles(who would have thought...such a great idea) and that lovely Mary Blair bed clothes for the little man!
Mahar has some great toys, like the play food sets. My daughter would love those. At Junior Society, my son needs the indefatigueable T-shirt!
Mahar Drygoods has so many cool things that it's impossible to choose a favourite - I like the play foods, the bull moose marionette, the journals and colouring books...
At Mahar Dry Goods (love that site!) the Bento Box from Lilly Bean is the best! And a quick look through Junior Society (a new one to me) turned up some cool cutlery sets from Mzuko and fabulous kids bedding from Boodalee. Thanks for sharing!
On Mahar Drygoods--I love the pear bag. With Junior Society, it's the paper models--they're fantastic.
My boys love the castle building blocks and the marionettes.
The baby boots at Mahar Dry Goods make me drool. So stinkin' cute! And the Jr. Society has fabulous arts & crafts projects.
I covet the castle building blocks and the monster butt pants at Mahar.
I love the Lilly Bean play food. And on Junior Society, definitely the flying beds vertical bunkbeds. I'll take 4 sets of those please. ;)
The Eames hang it all at Junior Society is pretty neat. As for Mahar Drygoods, the giddy giddy clips are fabulous.
Mahar -- Castle building blocks & all the handmade things. They inspire me to create.
I love that Mahar sells those Jen Corace prints because she is so, so amazing. And the bunk bed at Junior Society is very, very cool.
I've been drooling over the alphabet magnets for some time now.
Just found this blog. So fun to read. Mahar has very neat things (love the soft cutlery set) and Junior Society introduced me to Small magazine (great photos and designs).
I think I'd have fun playing with the giraffe marionette. And the SATees are pretty peerless.
I need some lilly bean play food and I LOVED Junior Society's recent "gastronomy" post on creative cutlery. I'm a solid Mahar Drygoods fan.
I love the play food from Mahar and the arts and crafts from junior society.
My kids would love the castle blocks. I love the the suitcase package. Also, the rocket playhouse on junior society would be a big hit!
Everything is awesome! I especially loved the kids cooking set and play food. And junior society? What a great resource! Cool stuff all in one place.
I love the Lilly Bean food, especially the Bento Boxes. On Junior Society the Furnishings section with the dog tail hooks are quite funny!
i love craftymommy's birthday banners! and the flipbooks on junior society's website.
Monster crancky pants!! :) and flip books are always good! :)
I love the Sock Monkey Cranky Pants on Mahar! SOOOO cute!! Just what I need to pull me over to wool covers!
the sock monkey pants are hilarious. And the Kelley Hart Classic Cordoroy Jumper dress has such personality. I love the play food!
i love the paper dolls. who doesnt' remember playing with them when they were younger...they were always a nice suprise in a magazine...the car ride home...simple distractions!
Mahar Dry Goods:
OK, First, the drygoods booties that look like ice skates are adorable. And junior society? Love the cardboard play house - so clever and inviting to all sorts of imaginations!
I love the lilly bean play foods at Mahar Dry goods, and the changing tables at junior society are ingenious! (though i liked a lot of other stuff too!)
Junior Society: My kids would find that little cardboard garden cottage irresistible. And how do I love Mahar Dry Goods? Let me count the ways.......and I'll start with that birthday banner. I have a big 70th bday bash coming up, so I hope I'm the winner! Pick me! Pick me! :)
The Monster Cranky Pants are pretty darn cute, but I think my favorite thing at Mahar Dry Goods has got to be the felt food. At Jr. Society, the favorite product would probably have to be the Balancing Chair Game, though my favorite thing about the site is the illustrations.
oooh, I have to pick only one thing?! If you are forcing me- with hands behind my back I guess I will say that the Sweet Jessie Bookplates at Mahar are my favorite.
It's incredibly hard to choose just one item, but I love the sock monkey necklace and on from Mahar and my favorite thing so far on Jr. Society has been the deer coatracks.
the deer wall hangers are too cute, and i have been dying to get my hands on the crochet gnomes!
Ooh, a contest with a built-in reason to shop!
I love my viewmaster from Mahar Drygoods. I love everything about the Junior Society-I get excited every time there is a new email!
I love the Squid soap and the SATees...and the KozynDan posters...and the play food. And pretty much everything else I've seen on the Junior Society!
On Mahar Dry Goods, I love the sweet nellie softies. I bought one of her cats and it's divine. On Junior Society, I love the cardboard play houses! How cool are those?!
On MDG: the Little Cotton Rabbits and on JS: the Braille alphabet blocks.
I have been a fan of Mahar Dry Goods for more than a year. I fell in love with Jen Corace's artwork and have drooled over Peter Dziulak’s Castle Building Blocks. And the deer coathangers on Junior Society made me swoon. And dude, the cool suitcase packaging? Totally neato.
I love love love the Castle Building Blocks on Mahar Dry Goods and on Junior Soceity I love the SATees.
It's so hard to pick a top from either site! But I'll say: my favorite mahar drygoods product is the Lilly Bean play food Bento, which I covet madly (if I'd discovered them soon enough it would have been the cranky pants though); and on junior society I love that cardboard rocket from paperpod. Well, and those flip-down bunkbeds.
On Mahar Dry Goods I love the crocheted chick and eggs. I'm going to try and crochet them myself. On Junior society I love the funky kids accessories.
ok i adore averything over at mahar, i especially love the design of the site and the beautiful flying bird illustration - so dreamy.
this contest is almost cruel!! I mean how am I supposed to CHOOSE from all the AMAZING stuf at Mahar Dry Goods let alone the Junior Society site!! But if means an entry in the super secret prize contest, I'll attempt to make an extra effort.
I love Mahar Drygoods! Even the tissue and string they wrap your purchase in is lovely!
baby cranky pants...love to screaming mouth over the crotch, hilarious. the art projects on junior society...though they look difficult, seem like awesome end products
Monster Garden Kit at Mayhar.
Jen Corace's illustrations are what I love at Mahar's - such simplicity and beauty with delicate lines. I really liked the paper cutouts at Junior Society - I'm sure I know someone who looks like the 'old man of the jungle'! The elephant on the the tightrope sillouette reminded me of a song my girls would sing " Ten grey elephants balancing on a string" nice memories!
I love the fun soapsicles by Soapy Love!
