{cool things} for your sweet tooth…

There is a new sweet shoppe on the cyber block that I wanted to make sure everyone knew about. It’s called, Poor Pierre and it just lauched today! Poore Pierre is the brainchild of Tiffany King (creator of the wonderful Pajama Squid) and this sweet creation is her new & much anticipated labor of love…. 
Oh my…. did I get your attention? Not only do those peanut butter balls look amazing, but what about these gorgeous photos? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Poor Pierre should be on you list of places to check out. In order to receive your goodies by the day of love, you need to get your order in by the 4th (that’s tomorrow) as each small batch is made carefully, by hand. I have my order placed & if the first taste is with your eyes…. I’m already drooling for the next bite!
Here is where to find Poor Pierre: Twitter, Facebook, Blog, Website, Etsy Shop

Bon Appetit!

{Store Feature} Fawn & Forest…


Did I get your attention? – Pretty wonderful stuff, huh? One of my favorite online stores is fawn&forest for a long list of reasons. I have been wanting to write this feature for quite a while now & I’m excited to share the wonderfulness with you today. 

I remember the day I got my first email from Summer about having my work in her store. Her enthusiasm and humor was infectious. I was in the last few months of being pregnant with Sayer and in sort of an overwhelmed space to say the least. I wasn’t sure of how much I could commit to as far as klt:production, given I hadn’t had a baby before. But what I did know, is that I wanted to work with this cool woman! The store was scheduled to open in about 6 months from when she contacted me so I felt safe to tell her that she could count on me. In that 6 + months, she was the mosts supportive and nurturing email friend (still is). For those of you that are moms, you might remember that those first few months of having a baby are very surreal. Summer had one little boy at the time and offered up advice and support in those times when I wasn’t sure up from down. So for that fact alone, fawn&forest has a soft spot in my heart. But when I saw the store launch for the first time- I was hooked! The combination of modern & handmade designs is stunning! I continue to marvel all that f&f has to offer. To this day, f&f has the biggest selection of klt:works products anywhere and I truly adore working with them. Some of Sayer’s biggest purchases have come from them as well – thanks to clever little trade & discount deals. It seriously is my “go to” store for special items.
tested & loved f&f items:
Oeuf Classic Crib Conversion Kit-  We just adore this crib as a toddler bed- great conversion!
DwellStudio fitted sheet-  Of course, all things DwellStudio are fun. 
Offi Capsule Chair & Tiki Stool – They don’t carry these same items anymore- but all Offi furniture is awesome. (capsule chair in blue in the right corner of the room- green tiki stool near the books on the left)
Little Heros Green Soaring Star Cape-  This is such a sweet cape. I got it for Sayer last year for his 2yr birthday. (in the room photo on the far right – hanging on the rack- next to the offi chair)
Mutsy Highchair– All Mutsy is wonderful. They don’t have this particular high chair anymore, but we are still using it! It adjusts to a regular chair. -Smart purchase…
Fatboy Junior Beanbag Chair-  This was handy when Sayer was a baby too- one of those purchases that last for a long time. 

But the love doesn’t stop there. Summer & Danny have 3 sweet fawns in their Portland forest that they call home, Eliot, Owen, & Isac (who just arrived this Summer) . They are fellow NW dwellers which only makes me connect with them more. Summer sent me these photos of her little fawns enjoying some klt:goodies and I can’t help but smile. The top pictures shows both Eliot & Owen in a vintage klt:owl tee that seems to have gotten lots of love. The bottom photos are of Owen with his tiny owl tank & his slug lovey. If I remember correctly, Eliot came up with a very cool name for the slug that just might work as a book character someday.

I feel so lucky to work with this lovely couple and to watch both f&f and their family grow. Ok, so why post this today of all days? Well, Summer and I are both Project Runway fans- we sort of cyberly watch it together. Tonight is the finale- so I felt like it was just the right time. I can’t think of a better way to watch Project Runway- but to shop at fawn&forest while you are watching….

{cool things } for kiddo …

There is a gem of a little shop that I want to share with you – that chances are, you have already  heard of. It is called The Pajama Squid and I have been virtually cruising through it again lately. Tiffany is the owner of this cleverly curated shop and I have had the joy of getting to know her over the last year. She throws herself into everything she sets out to do and you can see that in The Pajama Squid. Her products are selected with love and respect – I know this first hand because she carries a few klt:works owl plushies. Tiffany eloquently posted on her blog yesterday that she is moving on to a new and exciting adventure. What does that mean? Well, currently many things are on sale right now & will continue to go on sale until her little shop is empty. The Pajama Squid is filled with cool items along with a great selection of books, I might add. You should definitely go check it out! Here are 6 of my favorite things in her shop.
Floating Ducks – Sayer has this “mommy & baby duck” & it’s a favorite bathtub toy.
Geemo – I have my eye on this… 
Ollie Owl Plush  – Ok, so I had to include the owls that I make…. *smile*
This is New York – I love these books! We have this one, Paris, London, & San Francisco. -Great illustrations…
Fireman Wooden Bowling Set – I have been eying this set ever since I was pregnant. -Wonderful!
Black Bruno Racing Car – And these are pretty fantastic too. I hope to get one for Sayer for his third birthday coming up.

It wasn’t easy for me to narrow it down to six, let me tell ya. While it’s sad to hear that The Pajama Squid will be closing, I can’t wait to see what Tiffany has up her sleeve. I’m sure it will be spectacular (& delicious)! This gal is one to watch. In the meantime, I will enjoy her shop for as long as I can, along with her beautiful new blog.

{Store Feature} Ideal

Ideal- carefully curated goods, is a very special store to me. It encompasses all that I love- great design, smart & wonderful owners (who are moms to children & one to a dog), & cool books. This store is about 30 minutes away from my house & I have been lucky enough to have them carry my work for the last two years. Most of the stores that I work with are either online stores or out of the state/country. So I don’t often get the opportunity to visit in person and see how my work looks in the their shops
I usually deliver my goodies in person because I love the chance to browse & visit with the owners of ideal. They know design and how to be great moms so I could chat with these ladies for hours. Not to mention, I never walk out of that store empty handed. There is always something unique & cool to discover. They have a very keen sense of what they like and it all flows together seamlessly. We share a love of Marimekko, books, letterpress, and clean lines. They also have a gorgeous selection of jewelry too. There is always a lot to look at for Sayer and Chris as well. 
Last night they hosted a klt:trunk show that coincided with the local art walk. It was so much fun to stand back and watch the hustle & bustle in their store. I have to say, I love to observe little kids. But when they are wearing something that I made & playing with klt:plush, my heart melts. Lisa (one of the ideal owners) brought her two children to the event, Hank & Lulu.  They are the sweetest kids and Lisa is all smiles in their presence.

Both Lisa & Kathleen were calm, cool, and collected all night, sporting their gorgeous Marimekko attire, while talking passionately about design. I loved how Kathleen was so nurturing to Lisa’s kid’s too. You can tell these ladies are really good friends which just makes the store feel great to be in and visit. Every time Sayer has come with me to ideal, Lisa & Kathleen have been so sweet with him, showing him the newest toys that they have found. Safe to say, he loves visiting too. 

This is not a stuffy design store by any stretch of the imagination. It is friendly, smart, & beautifully curated. I had a wonderful evening last night and am really proud to be one of the designers who’s goods they carry. So if you are local, stop by – you will be really glad you did!
