Oma Mary's Blankets

When I gave birth to Little One, all the moms I knew told me that two things I'd need a lot of (apart from diapers) were onesies and receiving blankets. Of course, they were right. Little One couldn't possibly have enough onesies or receiving blankets! She went through them like crazy when she was little.

I had a few smaller receiving blankets to throw over my shoulder, as Little One used to spit up a lot. The larger receiving blankets were used to swaddle her.

I have to say that I LOVE receiving blankets. I love the soft cotton feel and the fact that they're lightweight. I love funky, cool receiving blankets. I love "different" patterns and colours, as opposed to generic, boring, blah receiving blankets.

While I was participating in the Majesta Moms campaign/blog tour with Mom Central, I "met" Chantal (part of the wonderful duo known as Oma Mary's Blankets). Chantal and her Oma Mary make beautiful handmade receiving blankets and for a good cause!

Handcrafted with care and finished with their signature crochet edge, these blankets are perfect for babies and toddlers.

The amazing grandmother/granddaughter duo work with organizations to provide blankets to children who are impoverished and neglected. Oma Mary has also donated blankets to children in Haiti.

I received this in the mail a few days ago! Can I tell you how thrilled I was?! It's a pink John Deere receiving blanket! Perfect for Little One, as she is a farm girl! The attention to detail was impressive. Little One LOVES her blankie! It only arrived in the mail a few days ago, but Little One takes her blankie with her EVERYWHERE!!!

Buy Oma Mary blankets online and know that you are contributing to a good cause. A gorgeous blanket for a baby shower or birth of a new baby...and the peace of mind knowing that through your purchase, you have helped make life a little better for a child somewhere out there. How great is that?

    I know! :) Wouldn't these be great to welcome a baby home from the NICU? :) If I were someone's Parent Buddy, I'd get an Oma Mary Blanket for my Parent Buddy's preemie :) <3
