Sweet Tea Collection Review & Giveaway

I don't know what the weather is like where you live, but where I live, it's been pretty chilly lately. North Carolina is notorious for mild winters, and ours has been pretty mild, but the mornings and evenings remain cold, and often damp. We have hardwood floors all throughout our old craftsman style cottage, and those cold floorboards can sure be a shock to the feet first thing in the morning! 

Being a protective mommy, I want to make sure my sweet little man stays toasty warm to prevent him from catching a cold. Let's face it- colds and little ones mixed together are no fun! I encourage Balian to wear socks around the house, but he usually pulls them off... he'll probably love to be barefoot, just like his momma. I don't have to worry so much, however, because Balian is the proud new owner of an adorable pair of slippers!

These aren't just any slippers, though. These slippers are from a shop on Etsy called Sweet Tea Collection. Sweet Tea Collection specializes in clothing, bedding and more for adults and children. Elena, owner of Sweet Tea Collection offered to send us a pair of sweet little slippers to review for our holiday gift guide. They were late in getting to us before Christmas, due to an unforeseen circumstance, which is why the review is just now appearing. Elena sent Balian a toddler sized pair of Felted Dinosaur Slippers. These slippers are hand-crafted and made to order! Check out some of the pictures of these super cute slippers!

I'm not really sure how these slippers are made, but anyone can see that it involves a lot of hard work and a very skilled hand! This is one of the cutest dinosaurs I have ever seen! I love the whimsical color, and his red and orange spots! I might just have to make up a new bedtime story about this dinosaur!

When I removed the slippers from the postal package, Balian was at my side. I handed them right to him, and he made his excited gasps and squeals, and ran off with them. I gave him a moment or two to himself, and then found him playing with the slippers in his room. Though they are a little big for him yet, I showed Balian that the slippers were meant to go on his feet- just like shoes. We carefully and playfully slipped them over his little feet, and for a few minutes, he just sat there- looking at his feet. I should have captured it on video- it was so cute! He was able to walk around in them for a little while (on carpet), before they eventually slipped off. He wasn't about to ditch his new accessory, though! Balian started crawling and sliding the slippers across the floor, having a grand time with them for the rest of the afternoon!

Now that Christmas has come and gone and we have returned from vacation, things are a little bit back to normal, as are our routines. So, every morning, Balian wakes up and heads to his Bumbo seat, plops down, still in his jammies, and I bring him some milk so he can watch Curious George or Cat in the Hat while I make him some breakfast. I slip his little dino buddies slippers on his feet, and he's just as happy as a clam! These little slippers keep B's feet warm and toasty, and they put my mind at ease... and I'm pretty sure I've mentioned that they're adorable! My husband loves them, because they're dinosaurs... and dinosaurs are cool!

With so many wonderful items to choose from, you could go on a vintage and upcycled shopping spree all in one place! Sweet Tea Collection is a great place to look if you're shopping around for gifts- especially baby shower gifts or new mommy gifts! Don't forget about birthdays, baptismal days, etc!

We love the slippers Elena sent for Balian, and absolutely recommend having Elena make some adorable slippers for your little ones, as well! They sell for $30.00, and are made to order. One word of caution, though- if you have hardwood floors throughout your home, like we do, you may want to ask Elena to see if she could just add some little gripper strips to the bottom. I am going to add some to the pair we have so Balian can wear them without falling. That's the only drawback, and it won't have an impact on everyone- just those with wooden floors.
