{Inspiration} Mr. Rogers & the garden of your mind…

Last Friday, PBS posted a video that has had me on a major Mr. Rogers kick ever since. I’ve been playing it pretty much non-stop since I first saw it in the PBS facebook feed. Mr. Rogers Neighborhood conjures up such nice memories – it’s a wonderful hit of nostalgia. But as a mom, it was a really perfect reminder of a special show – & as a small business owner, it was the much needed inspiration I’d been seeking. 


Some of you may remember me talking about my love of watching documentary films when I’m needing to decompress & take a creative break. Well, this little video got me on a search that led me to Mr. Rogers & Me & I watched it this weekend (I actually bought it on itunes). It was just what I needed- two thumbs up from me!

I introduced Sayer to Mr. Rogers this weekend as well. Not only by the cool “Garden of Your Mind” video, but by watching a few episodes of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. I was thrilled to see that there are videos posted on PBSkids. We watched an episode on Tuesday about paper (here). This is what it inspired…. 


We had a blast making this paper chain like the one in the Mr. Rogers paper episode. But we had even more fun playing with it. Of course, I had to document this colorful play (along with the new german pointer toddler tee). 


Thanks Fred Rogers, for still encouraging continuous joy…

{Good Read} Anorak + Alain Gree = LOVE

What happens when a new & innovative children’s magazine & press pairs up with a favorite children’s book illustrator? Perfection, that’s what. 
PLOC Magazine is the happy mag for little ones (kiddos from 3yrs-8yrs old) that contains tons of games & coloring stories for budding readers – & published by the gorgeous Anorak Press & illustrated exclusively by Alain Gree. 

I’ve been a fan of Alain Gree’s illustrations for awhile now & have even have found a few lovely vintage Gree books for Sayer over the years.  I just learned about the children’s magazine, Anorak this summer & was delighted with the 2 issues that I purchased. You can imagine how excited I was to hear about PLOC!

 

It definitely passed the Sayer test. These were his favorite 4 features on first read. They couldn’t be more perfect for his interests right now. While this is a UK publication, the world wide web allows all of us to partake in the fun. Definitely a favorite find & good read. Hope you are finding time to relax & curl up with a good magazine or book this weekend!

{Giveaway} Rainy Day….

It’s raining non-stop & I find I’m thinking of sunny days. Feeling nostalgic, I decided to go though old beach photos. I came across this sweet picture of Sayer on our trip to Boston 2 years ago. He’s wearing an owl tee that was printed on these funky Alternative Apparel tees that have the seams on the outside & rolled sleeves & bottom- a perfect summertime tee. I only printed a few & just found 2 in the studio – size 2T. So, it’s a rainy day giveaway here. I’m going to give away 1 on the blog & 1 on the KLT FB page. Are you interested? If you are, just leave a comment telling me what your favorite KLT product is & why. I’ll draw names tomorrow & post the winner. 

Hope you are having nice weather where you are….

{Vintage Fisher Price} Barky & The Happy Hauler…

Ever since I saw that a new little junk store opened up downtown, I’ve been just itchin’ to give it a browse through. Today I snuck down for a quickie look & found two little vintage fisher price toys calling my name (for mere pennies). 
Barky & the Happy Hauler just had to come home with me. They’ve definitely seen better days, but I love that about them. The Happy Hauler even has a tulip on it so how could I pass it up, given we live among so many tulips? I get so excited when I find stuff like this & can’t wait to see Sayer’s reaction to my finds. One of my favorite things to do is show him these treasures for the first time, when I’m behind a camera. 
Because honestly, as much as I love finding cool vintage toys- I love watching Sayer play even more. So it’s extra fun to document both. Tonight Sayer put the Happy Hauler in his firehouse garage & Barky is now the firehouse dog. Safe to say that he is as smitten with these toys as I am.  He can even do a nice Barky expression. Hey wait, is that Barky on his tee you ask? Quite possibly… 

Hope everyone is having a terrific weekend!
