I am itching for summer. Itching for it in a way that’s hard to describe unless you’ve been through an endless 7 month long winter. It’s been a cold cold spring, and everything around here is just now, just barely, blossoming.

So I’m wistfully meditating on two of my favorite summer things – carnivals/county fairs and sunshine. It turns out they’re great combined together. Bright, cheery, and full of whimsy. I’ve found  Vine.com is a great place to go searching for unique finds like these – things I haven’t seen everywhere else. A sister site to well-known favorites like Diapers.com (which saved us when we were in diaper mode!) and Soap.com, Vine is the eco-friendly designerly cousin. In fact, you can even narrow your product searches by whether they’re BPA-Free, GMO-free, Made in the USA, Made of Sustainable Materials, and/or Organic. It’s like the eco-friendly Amazon (the website, not the jungle). They’re als great for everyday essentials – like my favorite gluten-free snacks and daily lotion.

All that, and Vine provides free 2 day shipping on any order over $35, and their customer service is fantastic. When one of the items in my order arrived broken in half, they happily refunded me the cost immediately, no questions asked. And if you’re feeling overwhelmed by their  massive inventory, just click on the Vine Picks, every one of them is fabulous.

I’ve pulled an entire smorgasbord of family-friendly summer favorites on Vine’s Sunshine Carnival Pinterest board – we’ll be adding pins to it all day long! Make sure to check it out, and let us know what your favorite products are.

The bike looks amazing!

Melanie, that Wishbone bike IS amazing. We own one, and it’s the best thing ever. Birdie learns to balance without training wheels – and the 3 wheel to 2 wheel height adjustable options means it lasts for multiple summers with a growing kid. Can’t recommend it enough!

Me too! It’s hard to choose just one isn’t it? Lots of great finds.
