Lookey Loo

We were so excited to spot our Ella's Mod Brimmed Newsboy on Kelle Hampton's daughter Lainey.

Kelle is the author of the amazing blog, Enjoying the Small Things, and has her debut novel Bloom coming out on April 3rd.

Looking good Lainey!

Happy day!

Spring Cleaning

Technically, it's not spring yet.  But it's coming.  And with the warmer days comes open windows and the daunting task of reordering, reorganizing, and cleaning out your littles' toys.

This year I have a head start.  With the help of these adorable toy storage bins from 3 Sprouts.  

They are generous in size, made of 100% cotton, easy to spot clean, and feature super cute animals.  And the best part?  You can now get them for less!

Originally priced at $38.99, these toy bins now retail for $31.99.

We have the monkey, hippo, and owl in stock.  So get a jump on your spring cleaning organization and add a touch of fun too.

Happy day!

Happy Heart Day

We're all ready for Valentine's Day on Tuesday!  In fact, we're going to start celebrating tomorrow.

Ella doesn't have school on Tuesday, so we spent this morning getting her Valentine's Day treats ready for her class celebration tomorrow.  

No bake treats combined with a little crafting and voila!

I originally came across this idea here, and instantly loved it.  Rather than granola, we made rice krispie hearts and added a few jube jubes for good measure.

This Valentine favor bag was so easy to make.  Using paper bags and twine I bought at the dollar store, I printed them out on my printer using the template, then added a printed gift tag which Ella signed her name to.  Ella is very excited to give them out to her classmates tomorrow.  

Wishing you the sweetest week!

Support National Adoption Month

We love a good cause.  And what better cause than to have children find homes and homes welcome children.  That's why we hooked up with The Sparrow Fund.  And November is National Adoption Month.  

Show your support and get something beautiful while you're at it.  The Sparrow Fund handmade, one of a kind bracelets and earrings make amazing gifts for yourself or a loved one.  

Support adoption and get some Christmas shopping done.  It's a win-win.

Happy day.
