I hear you.You want sets! It took a number of custom orders for me to realize it, but I get it now! So in the past week, I’ve started adding placemat and napkin sets to the shop. And I’m especially excited about these first offerings because they promise to bring whimsical tales to your next snack or meal!
When you sit down for lunch, why not tell a tale of a couple of bears who went camping or a girl who took a basket to her grandma’s house and met a wolf on the way… These aren’t just placemat sets; they’re stories to share, lessons to learn, and imaginations ignited. Find your little bear cub or brave traveller a story set HERE.
And as always, these placemats and cloth napkins are easy to care for and made with love and care.
My business is based on my dual desires to 1) add cheer to childhood and 2) ease the frustrations of parenthood. Children love bright colors and whimsical items that are *theirs.* Parents love baby and kid goods that are thoughtful, easy to care for, and made to last. I strive to offer both in every fabric print I pull, every design I create, and every offering in my shop.
I want to give you more of what you want! What other sets would you like to see? Visit my shop HERE and let me know what YOU want! I was thinking of combining crowns and necklaces for birthday gifts, coordinating bibs and teething toys. What would you pair with a feeding bib — a napkin or a placemat or something else? Let me know in the comments below or on my Facebook page.
It’s my favorite time of the year! Farm Shares! Fresh local produce!
Food just feels more special when we pick it up at the farm. We have come to know the farmers at Brookfield Farm who have grown our food from greenhouse seeds to soil, through rainy days and hot patches. And each delicious bite reminds me of their work and what a gift this food is.
What are your favorite summer recipes? I let our share dictate the dinner plan last week…
Because our local delivery drivers can pretty much drive to my house with their eyes closed and know my children by name, I’ve decided that I have to work harder to collect recipes and make easy meals more regularly.
I’ll be sharing them here and in my Quick&Easy Recipe Roundup page and I hope you will share your whole family-approved meals with me! And as you will see below, my definition of “kid-approved,” when it comes to meals, is very forgiving. 😅
Here are some yummy recipes I’ve have made a few times now with much success and happy bellies. These are whole family approved…well parts of them anyway…
I love all roasted veggies always–breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert. You don’t really need a recipe. Just toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, thyme, rosemary, and oregano!
Husb politely tolerates roated veggies and my extreme enthusiasm for them.
Both girls usually like roasted brussels sprouts (but I just jinxed that, didnt I?) and broccoli every third Monday under the waning moon.
4 year-old is not a fan of sweet potato or squash roasted up, but loves roasted yellow potatoes.
19 month-old likes sweet potato but not squash or regular old potatoes.
Got it? Me neither. But they are welcome to pick out what they like and figure it out for themselves. And tomorrow I’ll just order delivery and they can pick at someone else’s food. 🙂
Tell me what your family is eating and not eating in the comments below. Seriously, I want to know! Or join me on my Tiny Foodies board on Pinterest where I’m looking for all pins related to feeding babies and bigger kids–gear, healthy snacks ideas, recipes, any of it!
