Well, hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. We do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, crazy home remodel projects, and cool (yes, cool) DIY crafts you'll totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!

baby bed.

Founded by two South African mothers, careful consideration was given to every aspect of the Lalapanzi Bed design. Envisioning a collection that is both elegant and soothing, Lalapanzi uses luxurious fabrics that are ultra soft, durable and easy to clean. The goal was to design a bed that was exclusive, yet truly practical and comforting to babies.

$167.
Folded measurements: 24″x16″x12″.

Lalapanzi is Zulu for “place to sleep” and if I were an infant, a Lalapanzi bed is where I would want to be. The beds are created to fit inside a crib so your baby can more easily make the transition from the womb to sleeping in their own space. It is lightweight and portable, {key for families on the go} and only the softest, coziest fabrics are used in its creation. Choose large {35″Lx24″Wx10″D} or small {29″Lx20″Wx9″D}.

spring parties.


I’ve really got an itch for Spring right now; maybe because it won’t stop snowing in my neck of the woods! At any rate, I’ve been searching for fun warm weather ideas {fantasizing really} and I love this one from Martha Stewart. I’ve had this particular lantern/butterfly page bookmarked in my Martha for quite a while and I was happy to see it on Hostess with the Mostess today. Find instructions here.

adorable gift baskets for wedding, baby, or kitchen.

Cupcakes Apron.
$35.
{via Two Blonds and A Brunette}.

These fabulous ladies created Two Blonds & A Brunette in 2002 after deciding there was a dearth of appropriately chic gift baskets on the market. They have done a remarkable job filling the void by creating baskets for all occasions: wedding, baby, or gourmet. They’ve also created a super sexy cupcakes apron {as shown above}. You can choose whether or not it actually makes it to the kitchen. Well done ladies.

Funky Baby Gift Basket.

don’t forget…


PBS Masterpiece theater is still running
The Complete Jane Austen. Tonight is part II of Sense & Sensibility so be sure to tune in {part one was lovely}. Check your local listings here. I plan on putting the kidlets to bed & snuggling up in a warm blanket {with a cup of hot cider} to watch the conclusion of this great story.

umbrella shaped sugar cookies


{feel free to insert humming of “umbrella, ella, ella” here}.


It’s been a while since I’ve done anything crafty with P. She’s got waaaay too many extracurriculars going on in her life and hardly seems to be at home anymore. {sigh} But this craft is definitely up her alley, and I’m going to make sure there’s time to make these with her this weekend. Get the recipe and instructions for these great umbrella cookies here. {And here’s to hoping for Spring rain, not snow.}
