Projecteo, the tiny Instagram projector
I recently came across Projecteo which is a tiny projector that projects instagram photos. My daughter runs around projecting them on every possible surface. This would make a great stocking stuffer or as a novel little present for a friend. I plan on making a little nature story to project on our wall as part ...

Cromanticamente handmade dolls
When Elodie was turning three I found her a perfect little doll from the Italian Etsy shop Cromanticamente. These two sisters make lovely little dolls and I chose the December doll for her third birthday. I also love their seasonal dolls like this sweet Nordic inspired one and Clara & The Nutcracker. I am tempted ...

Little Acorn People
Every autumn, Elodie asks when we are going to “meet more acorn friends.” We first created these little people at a play group we used to attend a few years back and it has firmly took hold into a seasonal tradition for us. We always collect leaves and twigs for their little beds and can ...

September has been a busy time for birthdays around here. I am always looking for cute gift ideas, especially for boys, since I am surrounded my little girls. I came across Tweet Toys which makes wooden imaginative play items for children. I find it particularly nice that you can choose your fabric as I tend ...

Kalon Studios
I’m in the middle of designing my youngest daughter’s nursery and keep coming back again and again to so many pieces from Kalon Studios. Their cribs and dressers are gorgeous and have such a harmony in design that they feel perfect for what should be the most soothing space in your home, your child’s room. ...

Hopewell
There is something special about selecting a quilt for your child. Elodie has a quilt that was handed down from her great great grandmother but I was hoping to find something a little different for my baby Francesca’s nursery. Hopewell Workshop provides a colorful, modern take on this very traditional art form. The Los Angeles ...

Juniorbeads necklaces
I’m a big fan of the Chewbeads new line of necklaces and bracelets for children called juniorbeads. Elodie is in love with the glow in the dark necklace and bracelet and always puts it outside in the morning for a charge. They are stylish and also double as a brilliant toy for teething babies. So clever! ...

Indestructibles
I recently found these wonderful books for babies and toddlers called Indestructibles. Not only are they beautifully illustrated, they are also water-proof, tear-resistant, and baby-durable (I even tried to rip one myself just to see!) I have since ordered several as gifts for my friends and have some handy for when my little one starts ...

Bambinos & Bunny
I became acquainted with Bambinos & Bunny when my friend brought her toddler girl over to my house. She was wearing the cutest little harem romper with gold moccasins and I had to look the line up immediately. Having two girls I am always looking for a respite from pink and purple. Bambinos & Bunny ...

Britt Browne
We bought a new house this summer and moved in a mere two months before our baby girl arrived. Since she is still only two months and sleeps with us, I have been slow to design her nursery. It’s always so fun to pick out new artwork for the little ones and I was happy ...

Peas and Queues
I just came across Peas and Queues, a gem of a children’s line made right here in Los Angeles. We are having an Indian Summer so it wasn’t a stretch to buy this cheerful dress even as we move into the colder months. The silhouettes and bold patterns are perfect for your little adventurer but ...

I am always on the look out for new music for my little girl. We try and listen to everything at home, from reggae to classical.

Sarah's Silks
Playsilks and scarves are such wonderful props for a child’s imagination. I’ve been collecting ones from Sarah’s Silks since my daughter was a wee one. They are great for using with clips to create little fortresses and also for creating capes or beds for baby dolls. The line of dress-ups is new to me and ...

Mopi
My daughter is in that in-between stage where half way into our evening walks she’ll abandon her tricycle and I’m stuck pushing it the rest of the way home. I wouldn’t mind so much if it weren’t for the fact that it’s blazing hot and I’m 34 weeks pregnant! So when she tried out her ...

Summer Paints
My daughter's first request when she walks in from her days at pre-school are invariably "May I have a popsicle?" or "May I paint in the backyard?" I can easily distract her first request with a plum or some other lovely summer fruit, but I can rarely stave off her desire to paint (some days ...

Summer Soba Noodles
Now that I’m in my second trimester of pregnancy, I find myself all of a sudden ravenously hungry. My blood sugar drops and if I don’t have a healthy snack nearby I get really dizzy and disoriented. No fun! I’ve been aiming to make one healthful salad at the beginning of the week that I ...

I love the playfulness of the Moroccan line Zid Zid. It is a complete line of children’s accessories, toys, and items for the home, each handmade in Marrakech.

Shine a Light
My almost 3½-year-old is having an increasingly hard time going to sleep without a light at night. We have the turtle that has glowing stars on its back but it automatically shuts off after 45 minutes and we often get early morning requests to “turn turtle on please!” which can get a bit tiresome. so ...

After months of cold weather in Europe, we decided to share one of the most essential layers that keep our babies and kids warm -- tights and socks! Despite our countdown to Spring, we are positive that there is still great need for warm, colourful, fun, and long lasting tights and socks. After all, you might be able to shed the scarves and hats soon (hopefully!) but the tights and socks are going to be here for awhile. Here are our tried, tested, and true favourites! Enjoy...
