Mini Boden

I looove this sweater & these rompers from mini Boden. I got their catalog last week with a coupon for 15% off and free shipping. Done & done! And with snow in the forecast for tomorrow (boo hoo!), we're not out of sweater-weather just yet.

But if we were and if I had a girl, I'd definitely pick up this cutey bears number below. The colors, the pattern, the cut - all perfect.

Egg Sun Hat

I'm lucky to have a couple nephews just a few years older than Griffin, so most of the clothes we brought to Florida were hand-me-downs. But when I saw this sun hat by Egg in Lulu's for Baby, I couldn't help myself. I love this print & the little pocket on the side. Plus, I knew he'd be living in a sun hat all summer, and hats are essentially size proof anyway, right? Wrong! We get down there, and it's too small! The straps didn't even meet. This kid's got quite the noggin. Guess I'll be lending this to Griffin's newest niece or nephew, who's due in a couple weeks. And then I might just have to go back & get the larger one. It's really just so cute, isn't it?

Oh, Hello!

I'm officially the worst blogger ever. I go on vacation & I leave you hanging. With a post about chocolate of all things! I hope I haven't made you hungry for the past week! I promise to be better.

We were in Florida last week. Vacation with a little one is definitely different, but 80 degrees and sunshine makes up for the early wake-up calls and no trashy mag reading. I always forget how good it feels to be away and even more so how refreshed and recharged I feel coming home. I've got a head full of ideas and ready to dive in!

Chocolate & Calendar

I'm working on the 2012 Calendar these days and having chocolate during breaks.  (Favorite project + yummy chocolate = pretty good gig)

I've seen Ritter Sport chocolate in our local bodegas for years, but never considered buying them til a friend told me that it was the founder's wife who suggested they add a chocolate bar that was square so it fit perfectly in a sport coat pocket.  Love that.  And love that it's still run by the third generation of Ritters.  Plus, their "snap open pack" is pretty genius.

OPEN: The L&H Outlet & Craft Bin

Our Outlet is now open!  Up to 80% off.  Two weeks only.

And in conjunction with our Outlet, we've opened up a Craft Bin.  Picture your hands diving into one of our many bins of printed paper we've collected over the years.  Except we're doing the diving and bundling 100 pieces of printed paper for you, so you have a good variety of color & design.  This bundle of 100 papers would be perfect for scrapbooking, crafts, handmade cards and tons of gift tags. Also in the Craft Bin today is our Post Card Bundle - the 12 post cards from our 2011 Calendar.  I love these!

We hope to open up the Outlet again this summer and contribute to the Craft Bin often.

Keep up with us here on the blog or sign up for our newsletter on the right hand side of this page.

We're pretty excited about it.  Excited to empty our shelves for new stuff coming in and happy to offer paper to people who love to hold, hoard, use and reuse paper, like us!

Stay tuned for more details & sign up for our newsletter to find out the moment it opens.

From the {Nursery} Fridays: Tummy Time

Just hanging out on my tummy.  Chewing on my hands.  That's what I do.

Have a good weekend, big people!

Happy March!

March is John's birthday month, and he loves to ride his bike, so this month's design is my little shout out to him:)

A little note behind this design: I had the colors chosen from the very beginning - a bright greenish yellow & charcoal gray - but I toiled with the layout of the wheels for a good day, maybe two.  It was a little obsessive, but I'm happy with it.

And let me just say, thank goodness it's March.  One step closer to warmer weather.
