Introducing...Mommy's Little Helper

MommysLittleHelper.etsy.com (Bath and Body shop)
1MaddieAndMe.etsy.com (Children's Clothing shop)

Today's feature is about two Etsy shops owned by the same person. Mommy's Little Helper has both a bath and body shop and a children's clothing shop.

Her bath and body shop is a delightfully unique shop with fun, quirky items such as "Monster Away Spray", to exterminate monsters lurking in your kid's room, and "Boo Boo Bags" to help calm an injured child.
The first item shown here is soap titled "We 3 Kings". It contains real gold leaf flakes, Ethopian Myrrh and Frankincense.

It looks like a piece of art and has great reviews on how it lathers, smells and how it leaves your skin feeling.

A great gift idea for someone looking to send a traditional style Christmas present.

This next item is "Cleopatra's Bath Milk". This is a 5 year old Mommy's Little Helper secret recipe and comes in a cool glass jar.

It looks like it would be incredibly relaxing to take a bath filled with these milk epsom salts.

Everything in her bath and body shop has a great price also.

Her second shop sells children's clothing. There are some adorable outfits available.

One of my favourites is this Damask patterned dress. It would make a cute Christmas day outfit. It is made of cotton with a cream lining and a tulle ruffle.

There are other matching outfits made from the same pattern, so you can dress several kids in the same design.

This last piece is a cute Christmas tree dress called "Round the Christmas Tree". It is cleverly made from a long sleeve t-shirt with a ruffle sewn onto the hem to make a dress. The t-shirt is embellished with appliques from the ruffle skirt fabric.

All her clothes come with washing instructions labels sewn in.

She also offers a gift wrap and drop service so that items intended as gifts can be gift wrapped and sent directly to the recipient.

Check out her shops today!
