Have all recovered from the big Holiday weekend? Poor Birdie has been up far too late for 3 nights in a row. I think we’re aaaalllllll glad the 4th of July is behind us at this point! But, to deal with those cranky, sleep-deprived kiddos, maybe we need some huggable plush. And I really do […]

What’s a doll if it doesn’t have the right wardrobe, am I right? Dollisimo clearly knows the importance of doll clothes. Her sweet (and affordable!!) dolls come with several clothing items – skirts, shirts, sweaters, bags, teddy bears – which are all mix and matchable and very cool chick chique. I also love the mother-daughter […]

Have the birds returned to your neighborhood? One of my favorite things about Spring is hearing the birds chirping like crazy early in the morning and whenever I leave our windows open. It’s this noisy symbol that the natural world is coming alive and I cherish it! It’s a perfect time to remember how much we […]

I suppose the official term for these beauties is rag dolls. But I have a hard time putting those words with these dolls! Reminding me of very refined dolls by Jess Brown, these sweethearts from Dollface are a tad bit more affordable. Also, they have a little more glitter and whimsy that’s extra endearing to the […]

First of all, I am very very very jealous of Regina’s gorgeous studio. Take a peek at her Instagram feed and you can see some recent photos of it – I may just have to steal it all. Secondly, I may also be jealous of her beautiful Foundling stuffed toys. Her Etsy shop, Oh Albatross […]

One of the silliest – and enjoyable – gifts Birdie received over the Holidays was the ability to turn into a mermaid whenever she feels like it! It’s easier than drinking a magic potion or singing like the Little Mermaid. All you need is a Blankie Tail. Available in different colors and made of the […]

It was one of those wonderful weekends where I actually felt good at the end of it, like I’d accomplished something. Even though, to be frank, it really wasn’t much at all. Just living life. So, to be honest, I don’t have a lot of words for you today – I’m still basking the glow […]

I saw a T-shirt the other day that fits my Monday mornings almost perfectly: it said “I can’t adult today”. Anyone with me? Let’s go hide out in Origanid’s French Playhouse. You bring the hot cocoa, I’ll bring the pillows and blankets. Seriously, if the cost wasn’t quite so splurge-worthy, I’d probably be ordering one […]
