The Simple Things in Life

Sometimes all it takes to make a really great day is a little bit of sunshine, a couple of good friends and a field of dirt.

Shop Update

I just listed some new items in the shop. We are going to be making more one of a kind pieces so be sure to check in periodically to see the new goods. As usual if you see something that you love that you want in a different size, send us a message and we'll see what we can work out for you.

Have a wonderful weekend!

A Little Brush with Fame

My daughter's preschool is right next to Rubicon Estate. It's just one of the hundreds of wineries that stretch up and down the Napa Valley, but this one is owned by Francis Ford Coppola.

So it was unexpected, but also sort of reasonable, when I met Sofia one day dropping off her little daughter Romy to spend a day in Mazzy's class.
As an owner of a children's clothing business trying to make it's humble way, I couldn't let her just go without some booty. I had to act fast though, they're only in school for three hours, so I wrapped up a Cabbage Rose Cap that I had on hand in her size and delivered it to her when she came to pick Romy up.
She said, "Oh, cute! Did you knit this?" And when she handed it to Romy she said "Look Romy, she made this hat for you." Which is not entirely true, but close enough.
Coming to the point, we got a little reassuring proof that our wear is celebrity-grade when the two were spotted strolling in New York donning our hat.
Not exactly our big break, but enough to make my day.

Welcome to the World

Our dear friend Wendy just had her second child, a little boy named Oliver. To welcome him into the world I made a mobile to go in the room he shares with his older brother Jasper.

The theme is birds so I salvaged a branch that previously served as a Christmas decoration, glued on some of our famous felt leaves and added some pretty little flying birds. I think the end result is equally simple and magical.

Sneak Peek

We are working on new designs for spring. I can't believe it's already almost here.

Here is a shirt I just finished the other night. I'd love to hear comments. Do you like it?
